Here’s a unique idea and a way to save on your wedding expenses – knit your own wedding dress. Now, this is certainly not an idea for everyone and it’s not a look that would even appeal to many – but it’s certainly a creative way to cut down on costs.

That’s what Lydia Tayler decided when she got engaged to Ash Pears. Knitting since she was six, and now the owner of a wool shop called Spun in Huddersfield’s Byram Arcade, Lydia obviously possesses the skills to make such an idea work.

When all was said and done, Lydia spent less than £200 on her wedding dress, using a £3.99 pair of knitting needles. She used 300g of yarn and 100,000 stitches.

As she said,

“I looked at a few dresses first but only for inspiration. I did try a couple on but had already set my mind to knitting my own. I did not look at the price tags but I know from my friends’ wedding they would have cost a fortune. Even if we had had the money to spend on a big wedding we would not have done it. What most people spend is a very good deposit for a house.”

Leave plenty of time, indeed; and make sure you sew or knit like a pro before taking on this project!
