{From Old to New} Wedding Dress Transformations

Everyone knows that for a wedding you need something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue! So what if you could knock out 3 out of 4 of those “somethings” with your wedding dress?! That’s just what Natalie did for her November wedding! With the generosity of her sweet mom and the incredible alterations talents of Leah, with Princess Seams, Natalie was able to transform her mom’s wedding dress into her very own, one-of-a-kind gown!

The pictures above are of Natalie’s mom on her wedding day! Isn’t she gorgeous?! Her gown was a cap-sleeved, lace beauty, with a pretty bow on the back. The picture below is of Natalie in her mom’s gown, just as she wore it on her day!

So when Leah, with Princess Seams, started the alterations she had a lot to work with! The gown was already beautiful. It just needed a few modern touches… The first things to go were the sleeves…

Then with a more fitted silhouette, luxurious tulle, and lovely lace details, Leah created a completely new dress that honored the timelessness of Natalie’s mom’s original gown! The finished product was absolutely breathtaking!


What do you think of this amazing wedding dress transformation?! Do you have your mother’s or grandmother’s gown that would look beautiful on you, with just a little update?
