So I've been spamming this all over my other social media, but I haven't posted anything on here!

When Jason and I got engaged Sept 2016, I decided I wanted to make my wedding dress. I knew it would be a stressful and time consuming process but once I thought of it, I didn't want to do anything else. It took over 90 hours of work to do, but was worth it. Not only did I save a pretty penny, but I have great memories of working on it with my mom and have an amazing story to tell. Not only that, but I ended up on the Most Viral front page of Imgur last week for it! Jason and I got married January 27, 2018 and it was so magical. Everything I had hoped for and more :)

I've already written up blog posts and done a video of this, so rather than rewrite it all here in the description, I'll just link out to them:
