This bride saved a lot of money and now has a one-of-a-kind item.
When you think of creative ways to save money, it can make a wedding moment even more special and unique. We’ve seen more and more creative wedding ideas that don’t cost much but are still really cool. For example, brides are going to thrift stores instead of buying expensive items, and couples are taking engagement photos in places you wouldn’t expect. It’s exciting to be able to pull off romance and glam without breaking the bank.
And because of the internet, people are able to see how others have gone viral for their frugal decisions, which may help them feel less pressure to spend a significant amount of money on their special day. Because, when it comes down to it, a party to celebrate the union of two people in love and partnership should be just that, and not a financial necessity.
One bride has recently been wowing the internet with her do-it-yourself wedding dress, which she totally knitted and crocheted in just 45 days and spent less than $300 on. In light of the fact that the typical price of a wedding dress is close to $1,800, I’d say she did quite well financially. And a beautiful end product was produced.
Since she was five years old, Veronika Lindberg Heino, also known as Kika, has been knitting. In addition to her book, “Knit This! 21 Gorgeous Everyday Knit Patterns,” her Instagram account and YouTube channel are both full of helpful hints, patterns, and inspirational images. It should not come as a surprise that Kika came up with the idea to make her own wedding dress almost immediately, considering how skilled she is with knitting needles and yarn.
Kika bought fifty skeins of pure silk yarn, made design sketches, and cried tears of frustration, but she did what she set out to do. She wore a beautiful, handmade, one-of-a-kind dress to her wedding that made everyone stop and stare.
Kika shared photos on Instagram and thanked her fans for their support. “Every comment, dm and like has given me the energy to keep knitting all throughout moving homes and planning this wedding in only 1.5 months time, thank you ❤️,” her caption said.
