Gen’s Striped Wedding Dress Helps Wedding Sparkle

A Wedding Dress Story By Gen L. My wedding dress is a Hayley Paige “Keaton” that was customized to add straps. The gown was purchased in Houston, Texas at Now & Forever Bridal Boutique, and the customization and alterations were performed there. It was the first dress that I tried on at the boutique.

It was an indoor wedding and the hem of the dress got really dirty from the dance floor, and I had to travel through the...

From Trash Bag to Glorious Gown

A Wedding Dress Story By Abigail Greene I have been close with my grandmother my whole life. It is my dads mom and we call her ‘Gwag’. My grandmothers dress spent most of its life inside a trash bag. The only time it was out was when her grandchildren asked to try it on. We played dress up in her wedding gown all the time! I told her when I was about 12 years old that I would wear it down the isle one day. I recently got engaged this past November and it was right as everyone started moving. My fiancé and I had purchased my fathers house and my dad moved down the street. My...
