Dog wedding gown


Last Thursday, Shantee “got married” to Peter, our old hamster, for the Sunday television episode of Rated K on ABS-CBN. Shantee and Peter’s unique friendship was one of their main stories, and my pets took part in the pet blessing ceremony they had for their Valentines’ Day special.

Of course, I made Shantee a gown. I couldn’t let her “walk down the aisle” an under-dressed bride!

The gown I made Shantee was made of scrap white satin and lace my mom had lying around. I added some bead and organza trimmings I bought from Carolina’s at SM Megamall just a few days back. I initially intended those trimmings for a different dog dress of Shantee’s, but it seemed more appropriate for this one—it made the dog wedding gown the accent it needed. Offhand, I can say that this is probably the most complicated dog dress I ever made for Shantee, even more complicated than her Christmas dog dress, or polka-dot New Year dog dress. But that’s still not the best thing about it…

Shantee and mommy, same wedding gowns!

I made it look like my own wedding gown! 🙂

I didn’t have time to design a really complicated one (my sister Joyce and I decided we’d dress Shantee up for the “wedding” just three days before the event), so I just settled for something similar to my own—something that looks very intricate, but really isn’t. Besides, isn’t it cute that we had the same gown?

Here’s the little bridezilla throwing a tantrum just before she got “married.”

She got really pissed when I left her on that chair to admire and take pictures of Gov. Chavit Singson’s mini horses. Shantee’s very jealous, you know 😀
