Even the bride's mother was dressed in a crocheted outfit. Her poor hands must be very tired!!!

I can't imagine how many hours it must have taken to make the wedding dress, let alone the bridesmaids' dresses. Can you guess how many stitches there must be in that wedding dress?

Can you imagine how heavy that wedding dress must be! Just bundle up and carry three or four of your favorite queen sized crocheted afghans.

Isn't that something!!! My favorite dress is the mother's. I wonder if she did ALL that crocheting by herself. What a mom!

I agree with Jack...that must be really heavy! But wow...I can only imagine the time it took to make all those dresses. My hands hurt just thinking about it.
