Cristy – A Different Kind of “Groomsman”

Cristy

In today’s world the lines of friendship and gender are no longer firmly drawn. Many women have male best friends and many men have great friends who are women and they want them included in their special day. This was one wedding that proves just that!

Working on Cristy’s tuxedo was so much fun. The girl has so much style and stood up to the challenge of looking fantastic and fashionable in her suit right down to her Jimmy Choos.

For Cristy’s outfit we took the sleeves off of her dress shirt, saving the cuffs for wearing. When she had the jacket on you would never know there were no sleeves underneath.

A few more alterations to the shirt and jacket to make them more flattering and feminine, adding some curve, then we cropped those pants!

The results were awesome!!

Cathy’s Vintage Wedding Dress

Working with Cathy on her wedding dress was such a pleasure. Cathy wanted to wear her mother’s wedding dress on her big day but needed to give it a bit of a modern twist! What a great idea!

Here is the before dress. Beautiful lace but the full sleeves and shoulders had to go for Cathy’s vision of what her dress needed to look like!

Here’s Cathy showing her mom the dress! She didn’t even recognize it!

If you’ve inherited your mom’s or your grandmother’s dress why not consider wearing it on your big day? The possibilities are endless! Having a vintage dress revamped or remade is such a personal and dear way of breathing new life into a family heirloom. It also reduces the number of beautiful gowns going to rags in closets and second-hand stores!
