I've seen queen-size mattresses transported on the New York City subway, so it seemed natural to transport my wedding dress that way too!
This pic is from my wedding 5 years ago. My husband and I met doing medieval re-enacting, so of course we wanted a medieval wedding. It took me 7 months to make everything. I made the beaded trim for his cotehardie—all 8.5 feet of it. There is another 22 inches of beaded fringe on the end of his hat. My dress has 13,000-14,000 individual beads sewn onto the brocade. I also made my jewelry and hair combs. His hat is stuffed with fur from the dog.
