A bride recently spent 1,000 hours making her wedding gown.

The wedding gown has lace pieces to represent people in her life, an elephant for her daughter and even flowers for her in-laws.

Tania, the dedicated bride, was inspired by a crocheted wedding dress she saw online, and then started crocheting an overlay for her dress.


The epic wedding gown, which had 150 pieces, in varying shades of ivory and purple, was just completed moments before Tania walked down the aisle.


In an interview with Huffington Post, Tania talked about the making of her wedding gown saying:

"I spent most of the night before the wedding working on the dress, taking a little nap of an hour or two around 4 a.m. to recharge. I think everyone else was very anxious as my bridesmaids kept asking me how I could be so calm. But for me, crocheting is so relaxing that I just had to smile and keep going, knowing that the dress would tell me when it was ready."

She later told ABC News that it became a kind of game at the reception for everybody to find ‘their’ piece.


Tania added, “as soon as I walked into the church everyone just smiled because the dress was so ‘me. It was so light and flowed… just as I’d hoped.”



Well, it all worked out and the gown is amazing.
