My brothers best friend of 25+ years got married this year. Doug's mom recently posted a
picture of a wedding gift that Doug and Michelle received on Facebook and I thought it
was such an awesome idea that I wanted to share it with you.
A watercolor painting of the brides dress!
For the most part, a bride packs up her wedding dress and it gets placed in the back of the guest
room closet with hopes that maybe one day her daughter might entertain the idea of wearing
THE dress on her own special day.
Thanks to artist Kristina Bailey, the dress that we always dreamed of, shopped
hours for, and wore on our most special day, can now be part of our decor.
This talented ladies 8x10 paintings have been featured in Southern Lady,
Atlantan Bride Magazine, and Daily Candy.
Kristina grew up in Macon, Georgia and after receiving her BFA in Fabric Design from the
University of Georgia, she interned in New York City in the textile and fashion industries.
She then spent her days dying fabrics and embellishing clothing surfaces, an experience
that would later greatly influence her painting. An opportunity in visual merchandising
with a national fashion accessories company brought her back home to Georgia where
she currently lives with her husband in Atlanta.
To order your own dress painting or an awesome gift for a special bride, contact Kristina at
her website here. But hurry, she will be going on maternity leave soon!
