|Me in my wedding dress|
In the run up to the wedding I was trying to think of an unusual thank you gift for my Mum. Flowers are lovely but I really wanted something that would last. As Mum is the worlds biggest teddy bear fan my plan was to go to the Build a bear shop and get her a bride teddy. Great idea in theory, but have you seen the price of those bears, and the accessories! The wedding dress wasn't even floor length!
My Mother in law was making my dress so I went to her and asked if she could make a little dress for a bear and maybe just add a touch of red somewhere on it to link it to mine...
Look what she came up with, an exact replica of my dress.
Isn't this the best dressed teddy bear you've ever seen!
We presented the bear to Mum after the speeches, you should have seen her face! As she opened it by the look of the box she was expecting a bear but was lost for words when she saw it.
