Aoibhín Garrihy upcycled her bridesmaid dresses to create a lovely christening gown for baby Hanorah

Sorry this is too sweet.

AOIBHÍN GARRIHY PROVED that you don’t have to let your bridesmaid dresses rot in your wardrobe after splashing out for them on your big day.

Nope. You can rework them so they serve a different kind of big day. Aoibhín recently welcomed her first child, a daughter, with husband John Burke in June.

Little Hanorah was christened on Saturday in her home county Clare, and they certainly look overjoyed in the Insta shots.

People soon noticed that little Hanorah was matching mammy Aoibhín in an extremely glam white floral gown.

The actress revealed on her Instagram story that she designed the dress, using the very same dress that her sister and bridesmaid Ailbhe wore during her 2016. 

She wrote: 

Ailbhe Garrihy parted with her bridesmaid’s dress for Hanorah and Doireann Garrihy gave me hers so we could be twinning!

A worthy donation.

She then wore sister Doireann’s dress, so the two would match. Ah here. 


Right, time to have a baby just so we can twin with them.
