Wedding on a budget does not mean giving up on quality.
It just means being smart about how you use your money. Ask Christina Williams and she will echo our sentiments.
Unlike many brides, the beautiful Kenyan lady wanted something simple, affordable and not too harsh on her pockets.
And she made sure she got it by all means necessary.
Christina, a Facebook user, said she had the best designer in town who made her wedding dress for free.
The newlywed’s mother did it all. From designing the beautiful gown to sewing it in such a short time.
The result was remarkable. Whenever Christina’s mum needed the bride to do fittings, she always called her home.
Then the talented seamstress would make alterations and go back to work without the hustle of using a workshop.
Anytime Christina did not want her husband-to-be to see her dress, the lady would hide in their children’s bedroom and try on the figure-hugging piece.
It was a white, mermaid shaped gown that was fitted with pieces of Ankara on the neck, sleeve and trail.
