This is a very important event in the memory of your DD's life and I know when she looks back on this it will be you she thinks of first, and then she'll smile, yep I would say you hit a home run on the gown, and created a sweet memory to boot. Oh and thanks for the ref. on the books I shall check them out.

ChristineBR - LOL You wouldn't believe the trouble we had finding just the right shade of blue make-up.

Great dress. But wow, how you did their make up to match the dress--that is amazing. Just kidding, lovely work, lovely pic, lovely kids!

The dress turned out great - they look wonderful together. You should be so lucky that she'll choose such a simple and stunning wedding dress when the time comes.

goldesdottar: I didn't make the tie. We gave him a swatch of the fabric so he could select a coordinating tie.

Did you make his tie too? I can't believe even serendipity could produce such a nice match.

Your daughter is lucky to have such a talented Mom. Her dress fits beautifully, and that shade of blue is gorgeous! She and her date DO look fantastic.
