This Bride Spends $170 And 8 Months Crocheting Her Own Beautiful Wedding Dress

0

22-year-old Abbey Ramirez-Bodly decided to make her own wedding dress after struggling to find an affordable gown. While we’d have ended up with a white sack, she got to wear the dress of her dreams.

Abbey, from Arkansas, US, couldn’t find a dress within her budget.

1

The vintage-style dresses she loved were all over $1,000.

2

But crafty Abbey, who taught by her aunt to crochet when she was just 3 years old, knew she could make something beautiful on a budget.

3

She spent $70 on cotton yarn and spent 8 months crocheting.

4

She said, “Making something with your own hands out of love is very special on the most important day of your life.”

5

After spending $100 on a green dress to go underneath the crochet, the total cost of the dress was $170.

6

She described wearing the dress as “Amazing. It was emotional.”

7

“Especially when you put that much time and love into something.”

8

“When I put it on I was, for one, amazed that it looked exactly like what I thought it would look like in my head.”

9

We think the dress, something beautiful made with love and perseverance, is symbolic of a marriage itself. Abbey did an amazing job and we wish her all the best as a newlywed!
