16 Brides Who Skipped the Store and Stitched Their Own Wedding Gowns

9 months ago

One girl shared that her wedding dress cost her only $30. She crocheted it while traveling on the bus, and it seems to have inspired a lot of crafters. This selection includes not only knitted but also sewn dresses. What unites them is that everything is made by the brides’ hands.

And as a bonus, we will show you a dainty dress with black lace.

“I crocheted my own wedding dress! 21 days, 121 hours, 79,000+ stitches.”

  • 21 days!?! That’s incredible!! And the dress is gorgeous, it drapes so beautifully. © ienaer/ Reddit

The dress of a craftswoman

“Never got my ’yes to the dress’ moment — I made my dress!”

“I had fun making this dress and it’s great to share it with a community of fellow crafters.”

“I made my dress and want to show it off!!!”

Another craftswoman has knitted her outfit.

“I made my dress from scratch. But I feel it’s missing something...”

“It’s finally ready!”

“I made my wedding dress (and bridesmaids’ dresses).”

“I finally decided to post this, although it was from quite a few years ago. Great memories, both making the dress and the big day.”

“Making my own wedding dress...still needs hemming and small adjustments.”

“It was a winter wedding so I needed white boots, which turned out to be quite a mission to find.”

“Even though we did a basic town hall wedding, I made my own wedding dress!”

“I made my own version of the Galia Lahav wedding dress!”

“I’m so pleased with the result!”

“The pattern was about $12, one giant ball of thread was something like $15 (with coupon), the slip underneath was the most expensive part at about $35. ”

Bonus: This girl’s dress was made by her mom, and it’s very unusual.
