Memories of a Wedding…Dress

WeddingOn May 1st, my husband and I celebrated our five year wedding anniversary! In honor of this special milestone, I wanted to share a way that my wedding dress has evolved since that time.

I wanted it to be a part of our everyday lives.

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.

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.
