Today’s Southern Spotting is more than just a pretty face, y’all. Read on for the beautiful story behind Becky’s necklace!
From the bride:
“The necklace was made from lace removed from my mother’s wedding dress. I had originally wanted to wear her dress for our wedding, but it didn’t work out as planned. I had seen this necklace on Pinterest and loved it. It seemed like a beautiful way to still include my mom’s dress. I picked out two pieces of lace, bought a chain and clasps from the arts and craft store, and put it together with some wire cutters and pliers. It’s definitely not the most sturdy piece of jewelry, but it did the trick. To me, it completed the dress. I loved the way it turned out. And I was still able to wear my mom’s dress, even if only a part of it.”
Huge thanks to Bethany & Dan Photography for sending this gem our way!
P.S. Nicole and I were discussing how there needs to be a better name for things like Becky’s hair thing, because “hairpiece” just sounds like a toupee. Hair ornament? Hair adornment? Hair swag? Let us know if you come up with something good!
In addition to loving the necklace, I’m obsessed with this dress – does anyone by any chance know the designer & style number??
Cait T.: Hey Cait! Not only did I take these photos, but my sister ALSO wore this dress in her wedding :) It is this dress without the bow. http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Strapless-Shantung-Taffeta-Sweetheart-Ball-Gown-T3039
Thank you for sharing this Emily!
Love, love, love this idea!!! It was not only beautiful, but a wonderful way to include your mom.
This is the sweetest idea!
