earlier this month, my husband and i went to vegas, and i surprised him with an elvis-officiated vow renewal.  fun!  since i couldn't very well pack up my voluminous wedding dress and maintain the surprise, i had a great excuse to make a new one.  i used this pattern:  http://img.sewingtoday.com/cat/20000/itm_img/V8113.jpg   the only mod i did was to shorten the train a bit--i kept a wee train, which was immediately encrusted with filth.  but because i am so smart (okay, cheap), i used a nice, machine-washable synthetic! 

cue the self-conscious photo shoot!







aaaand, a shot of us at the chapel.  the red scarf is my elvis souvenir; he dabs his forehead with it and drapes it around the bride.  later it occurred to me that i should have thrown my undies at him in return. 



by the way, when you wander around the strip in a wedding dress, still carrying your bouquet, passersby LOVE you.
