Mother of the Bride Dress & DIY Ukrainian Wedding Part 3

I love look­ing through old photo albums, but it’s espe­cially fun when they con­tain old pho­tos of my parents!

I can remem­ber the first time I saw this photo of my par­ents on their wed­ding day. I was a young girl and I never for­got it! So, I thought it would be fun to dig it up and scan it for the blog post today!

Par­ents Wed­ding over 28 years ago at St. Vladimir Ukrain­ian Catholic Church

My mom’s mother of the bride (MOB) dress was my sec­ond MOB dress I’ve made.

(I hope to post some­thing soon about my first MOB dress!)

I’ve enjoyed build­ing these MOB dresses! First, it’s fun to challenge/expand my skills! Sec­ond, brides’ moth­ers have more design options to choose from and it’s excit­ing help­ing them choose the design, color, fab­ric, and acces­sories! But lastly, they are the ones that should be hon­ored and deserve to look & feel great on their daughter’s wed­ding day. With that said, I loved mak­ing my sister’s wed­ding gown– but there’s some­thing extra spe­cial about mak­ing a dress for my mother (or for a mother of the bride)!

 

Here are pho­tos of the dress on my sister’s wed­ding day!

Read more about the mak­ing of the dress here.

Silk wool fab­ric is absolutely gor­geous and breathes very well.…the only down­fall is that it wrin­kles easily!
