I have had brides that go through dramatic weight loss or have ordered a larger wedding gown. Then when it comes to alterations, they find the seamstress cutting away handfuls of their gorgeous wedding gown. Don't allow the bridal salon or tailor to keep your wedding gown "scraps"! They are yours...you've paid for them...and can sometimes use those scraps within your wedding decor. Take a look:
|Handle to your bridal bouquet|
|Tie, vest and/or pocket square for the groom|
|Purse or money/card bag|
|Accent your guest book|
Don't let pieces of your gown go to the scrap pile cemetery, do something with them if you can.
Until next time...WEDologize!
