ROSE AND LACE

Of all the different types of celebrations, I maintain that the best kind of celebration is a wedding. The day of your wedding is one of the most special and beautiful days of your life. With a million-and-one wedding boards and pins on Pinterest, the new trends are difficult to miss. One of the more recent trends is a very feminine rosy pink color paired with the classic sign of femininity, lace. Sometimes I wish I could get married to Andrew again and again just so I could try all of the new trends, but while that is not an option, making a bridesmaid's dress in the current trend is the next best thing.
Making this dress was such a great growing experience for me. I started completely from scratch so that I could give my sister-in-law, Lauren, the exact design she wanted for her dress and the perfect fit. We both LOVE how it turned out! Congratulations, Coryne and Jon on your engagement! So excited for your lives together to begin!

You're gorgeous, Lauren! Thanks for posing for me and letting me make you the perfect bridesmaid dress!
