Secret Garden Wedding Dress & Flowers
We are so excited to reveal a few of our Secret Garden Photoshoot pics today!! But because it wouldn’t be a Zest shoot without some DIY sprinkled in, I thought I would show you how we transformed my very own wedding dress for the shoot. (not to worry no permanent alterations mom!) 🙂 SO there we have it, the lovely before pic- all lace and more of a trumpet styled wedding dress. But just not screaming “secret garden” at us. So chanda and I went off to the drawing board…
Our photographer friend Lynne with Image Paradigm gave us some curtains she did’nt need anymore. They were white…sheer…and we had a ton- so why not? SnIp sNiP away into squares with a circle in the center to slide over the brides head and cinch on the waste like below…
We tied a scarf around my waste and added a flower from my headband- coming along! We also wanted to zest up our bridesmaid dresses by making some silk flowers belts to tie in the bride with the bridesmaids.
So Chanda snagged this blue silk maternity shirt from the thrift store, a little too blue if you ask us. We actually dyed the fabric with yellow Rit Dye and then took it a step further and soaked the fabric in coffee grounds to get this darker lush green seen below
Ready for the big debut of the wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses, not to mention our amazingly beautiful models (you might recognize a few) 🙂
