Innovative Bride Allows Bridesmaids To Repurpose Their Old Wedding Dresses For Her Ceremony
May 11, 2022 by apost team
Weddings are something that loving couples are able to have and cherish for the rest of their lives together. It is something the couple celebrates with not only each other, but with all of their invited friends and family. There is so much planning that goes into a wedding, including picking out flower arrangements, setting up decorations and picking out great food and music.
While these romantic ceremonies tend to be delicate and full of wonder, they can sometimes bring out rough characteristics in individuals. Sometimes brides can get a little on edge while planning their one special day, resulting in them being put into the “bridezilla” category. They may appear unreasonable or too demanding as they work hard to plan the most perfect day. Being able to control each and every aspect of her wedding is critical to these brides, as their ceremonies and receptions are extremely important to them.
Some people also like to stick with traditions when it comes to celebrating their big day. However, one bride proved that she was very non-traditional and definitely wouldn’t fall under the bridezilla umbrella, as she asked her bridesmaids something that most brides never would – she invited them all to re-wear their past wedding gowns!
Bride and actress Audrey Moore proved that not all weddings have to go according to the usual script. While there is beauty in the traditional white dress and matching bridesmaids dresses, sometimes it is fun to mix things up and really bring out the true personality of the bride and groom. It’s evident that Moore did just that at her wedding in 2019.
While some couples opt for a traditional wedding or elements of traditional weddings, actress Audrey Moore and writer Jesse Lumen decided they wanted their special day to look a little different. The happy couple wanted their wedding to feel as authentic and unique as their personal love story.
Moore said that she and Lumen wanted their wedding to reflect their own personal style and fun-loving nature while still celebrating what the true meaning of marriage is about.
Moore has appeared in a variety of hit television shows, including “Godless,” “Better Call Saul” and “NCIS.” Her now-husband Lumen is best known for being a writer and producer, and has worked on numerous blockbuster film sets. According to his website, he has also directed, edited and helped create several virtual reality, augmented reality and viral videos on top of his work in the film and television industries.
It’s apparent that this is an incredibly talented and creative couple, so it’s no surprise that Moore and Lumen pulled out all the stops to make their wedding day as special and memorable as possible.
For her dress, Moore chose to use her "something blue" on her own wedding apparel. Moore looked stunning in an aqua blue dress adorned with intricate details throughout the fairytale gown.
Lumen showed his personality by trading in the traditional wedding tuxedo for a tuxedo-patterned hoodie. He also extended an invitation to his groomsmen to wear the same comfortable and cozy look. Guests of the couple's beautiful day were asked to either arrive wearing a costume or their own wedding dress.
It was truly a festive affair for everyone involved! Moore said that she wanted her guests to be able to wear their wedding dress for a second time. She wrote on Reddit that it is a shame that most wedding dresses are only worn for one day. Although having all of the women wear white at a wedding would normally be a big faux pas, it was a big hit at this special affair.
The post read:
“We thought it was sad that most women only get to wear their wedding dress once, so we invited all the women coming to our non-traditional wedding to wear their old wedding dresses again!”
One thing is for sure – this wedding was like no other. "It was like watching a group of princesses come to life,” Moore told BuzzFeed news.
Rather than carrying a classic wedding bouquet made of flowers, Moore instead carried a bouquet of magical ribbon. Meanwhile, the groomsmen and bridesmaids carried luminaries. The fun carried over to the reception.
According to Good Morning America, the couple presented a special slideshow featuring their guests on their own wedding days. And then the attendees were even invited to help decorate the wedding cake. It would appear as if the couple met their goal of making everyone feel included and celebrated on this beautiful day.
You simply must take the time to look at the many pictures and the video of this amazing day. You will never look at weddings in the same light again after you see how this creative couple managed to make their celebration of love especially unique!
After you have had the chance to live this moment with them, be sure to spread the joy to everyone that you know. Everyone needs to see a true love story such as this!
