I love the dress and think you did an amazing job on it! I do, however, live superstitiously to an extent and seeing this dress took me back to my wedding and I remembered there was a poem I read before really picking anything for my wedding out yet:

Married in White, you have chosen right,
Married in Blue, your love will always be true,
Married in Pearl, you will live in a whirl,
Married in Brown, you will live in town,
Married in Red, you will wish yourself dead,
Married in Yellow, ashamed of your fellow,
Married in Green, ashamed to be seen,
Married in Pink, your spirit will sink,
Married in Grey, you will go far away,
Married in Black, you will wish yourself back.

I certainly hope this doesn't fall true for her! My first wedding I was married in pink and boy did it sink! lol!

hee, I think they say "married in red, you'll wish yourself dead" for no more reason than the rhyme.  My good friend married in a white dress with a big-old-shock-of-red trim and train and it was GORGEOUS and she's at two years of happy marriage.

and...I LOVE how the dress turned out.  I'm always hesitant with colored dresses (I wore black and white to EVERY high school dance until senior prom), but this one just looks perfect, particularly on the bride.

The dress is real gorgeous, and although I know that I'll never wear red to my wedding, I'm glad your friend got what she wanted. Smiley

Wow what a fantastic dress.  Great job using the interior bits from the original dress.
I love the fabric too.  I also got married in red and had my dress custom made (they don't seem to sell red wedding dresses...)

Absolutely beautiful! Don't they wear red in Asian weddings? I've married before and really never cared about having a wedding ( and didn't enjoy it) but now that I'm really in love I want to have one my way, including a turquoise dress for me Cheesy So I love seeing hers! Thanks for sharing!

Life is confusing, just when you think it's over it throws you a view like this and you don't know where you are.
