Around our one year, I cut my entire dress to shreds. No…it was not out of anger and YES…I was terrified to do it. What prompted me to do to such a thing was the thought of this beautiful dress stashed in the corner of our closet, only to gather dust and be forgotten. I wanted it to be a part of our everyday lives.
My dress, although simple, had delicate fabric and beaded flowers scattered along the skirt and train. They were a perfect part of the dress to display. For contrast and to make the embellishments stand out, I draped the ivory, flowered netting on top of a solid grey fabric. They were then framed and hung over our bed.
I think I can speak for most in saying that finding artwork for your home is really difficult. Ideally, you want something that both reflects your style and has meaning. This was a fantastic option to fulfilling both. Not only does this fit the look of our home, but when I walk into our room, I am reminded of our wedding day and how incredibly grateful I am for the last five years.
