- A woman named Christina Williams has gone viral after showing off her beautiful wedding dress that she said her mother made for her
- William wrote that she knew she did not want to buy an expensive wedding dress but something beautiful and affordable
- Her mother got to work and sewed an elegant dress that embodied both modernity and tradition
Having a wedding on a budget does not necessarily mean having to give up on the quality of the event.
It does, however, put more pressure on planning how to use the money available. A bride who recently found this to be true is a woman by the name of Christina Williams.
The lovely woman, who resides in Kenya, expressed that she wanted a beautiful wedding but also one that was simple, affordable and not too harsh on her pockets.
Christina announced on Facebook that not only had she met her own intentions but that she had found 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 time for her daughter's special day.
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.
Hilariously, anytime Christina did not want her husband to be to see her dress, the lady would hide in their children’s bedroom to try on the piece.
It was a white, mermaid shaped gown that was fitted with pieces of traditional fabric on the neck, sleeve and trail. The final result was remarkable.
In celebrity-related news, Briefly.co.za previously reported on when it was announced that Trevor Noah had splashed out a cool R400 million on a house in Bel-Air.
The property was built and designed by a Los Angeles architect named Mark Rios. People were blown away by the scale of the home, six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and a whole range of luxuries such as a spa and screening room.
Since the story broke people have been feeling all sorts of things when they look at his sprawling mansion in the Bel-Air hills.
Here are some reactions from tweeps to his R400 million home:
@thirstysphe: "Trevor Noah deserves more than this mansion. Deserves triple the amount or more. Man could have been a gangster in Cape Town but chose a better life. I applaud him."
@SiwyFanezy: "#TrevorNoah I was asking myself where in North Riding Bel Air this is kante is in California Japanese castleCongratulations Trevor."
