I made my own wedding dress: All the details about our unique DIY wedding day!
When talking about weddings, I find there is so much pressure in relation to that day and Ipersonally didn’t want any of it. I didn’t want our day to be too big, to be too over the top. I didn’t want to be a control freak over everything or a Bridezilla as I knew if we had invested all of our savings into this day, that I would have probably been one! All we wanted was a simple day to celebrate our love while being surrounded by our loved one.
In this first post about our wedding, I was telling you about how our day went and now I wanted to share with you all the little details that made my bride OOTD. Here is where you can find out all about my unique made-to-measure wedding dress made with my little hands, my makeup, the flowers, etc!
Let’s do this!
I made my own wedding dress with a little over 38 meters of tulle and lace. It took me over 45 hours to make my wedding gown. I cut my dress a little bit shorter than usual because I wanted to have fun, I wanted to dance all night long without having to change my outfit. That’s also why I made my veil longer, so I would have a train when walking down the aisle.
MY WEDDING BAND
I found my wedding band at Spence diamonds, where my husband bought my engagement ring. I wanted a wedding band that would be different from most and that would enhance my engagement ring. That’s where I found this unique wedding band, which fits perfectly with my engagement ring.

MY FAUX-FUR COAT
The moment I saw it at H&M, I thought it was so cute that I couldn’t leave without it. I shortened it a little bit so it would fit perfectly with my dress.
I made my own wedding bouquet with garden roses, white roses, burgundy roses, white ranunculus and I completed my bouquet with carnations in the same shade as well as branches of seeded eucalyptus. I would have loved to have white poppies as well as peonies, but as they weren’t in season it was impossible to find anywhere.
