As any bride-to-be knows, a wedding dress can be a huge expense. But one creative bride in Oklahoma has bucked the trend by creating her own look — and the result was seriously gorgeous.

She said when she began to shop for a dress for her wedding to now-husband Jake Bodley, she saw a photo of a handmade dress that she fell in love with.

"I wanted to make my own dress because I saw another woman had done it and it was by far the most beautiful dress I'd seen," she said.

The 23-year-old said she only spent $70 on the yarn and $100 for the green dress she wore underneath. She said all of their guests seemed to love her creation, and she received a ton of comments on it during her special day.

And of course, Jake loved it.

"My husband was impressed that we were able to do it and it came out great," Ramirez-Bodley said.

"I've had many requests for help and advice on starting [other women's] own projects and that's really cool," she said.
