Woman turns wedding dress into Christmas tree skirt

A South Carolina woman found a creative use for her wedding dress decades after wearing it on her big day.

>> Read more trending stories 

Tess Heidelberger, of Mauldin, South Carolina, said she decided to turn her wedding dress into a Christmas tree skirt after finding the dress in her basement earlier this year, The Knot reported.

The dress, which Heidelberger wore on her wedding day in 1990, sat in a box untouched for more than 20 years.

Heidelberger's daughters thought the dress was outdated and didn't want it for their weddings, but Heidelberger felt it was too sentimental to throw away.

"I thought, 'What a waste,'" she told The Huffington Post. "My basic Christmas tree skirt was on the top of the box of Christmas decorations, and that's when I got the idea to put the two of them together."

So she got some scissors and a hot glue gun, and she got to work.

"I laid out my wedding dress and cut the skirt off the dress. The first cut is the hardest," she told the Post. "Then, I cut off any details on the dress, like appliqués, bows and beading. Then I pinned the wedding dress skirt on the plain Christmas tree skirt until I liked the way it looked. Then I just hot glued it in place, and I added the extra appliqués I cut out earlier."

"Now my tree looks like it's floating on a cloud," she wrote on Facebook. 

Heidelberger said the project took an hour to complete. She said it was easy to do and liberating.

"You just go crazy because it's just so freeing," she told ABC News. "There's not one stitch in the whole thing. Anyone could do it."

Heidelberger told ABC News she's pleased with the result and her husband is happy to have more storage space in the basement.

"I'm so happy I can look at it every year. It's so pretty," she told ABC. "And it's so much better than staring at your dress through that cellophane window in the box." <script>(function(d, s, id) {  var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];  if (d.getElementById(id)) return;  js = d.createElement(s); = id;  js.src = "//;version=v2.8";  fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));</script> I TURNED MY WEDDING DRESS INTO A CHRISTMAS TREE SKIRT!  NOW MY TREE LOOKS LIKE ITS FLOATING ON A CLOUD!  :)Posted by Tess Heidelberger on Wednesday, November 23, 2016

Groom-to-be paralyzed during bachelor party

Brianna Chambers contributed to this report.

Less than three months before Meg Alexander and Brett Greenhill's wedding, the Atlanta couple's family and friends are asking for help through a GoFundMe page after an accident left the groom-to-be paralyzed.

>> Read more trending stories  

The pair were in Naples, Florida, on Dec. 3 celebrating a joint bachelor/bachelorette party when members of the bridal party spotted Greenhill floating in the water.

"Brett went into the water and all of a sudden my friend, Kelsey, says, 'Why is Brett doing that? Why is he floating like that?'" Alexander told People Magazine. "I was like, 'I don't know. He's a goofball,' and she went to check on him."

Though they found him conscious, Greenhill was unable to move, according to a post on GoFundMe.

"I grabbed him, flipped him over and he said, 'Help me, Kel. I can't move,'" Kelsey Rice, a nurse and one of Alexander's best friends, told People. "It went from an incredible weekend to devastating."

Greenhill, 39, was airlifted to Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers, where doctors told the couple that he was paralyzed from the neck down after possibly hitting his head on a sandbar. 

Doctors removed fragments of Greenhill's vertebrae, which had lodged into his spinal cord, in a successful surgery. He remains in ICU at Lee Memorial, where he is unable to speak. Doctors told Alexander they expect Greenhill to regain the ability to speak.

"I go through the alphabet, and he'll tell me what letter to stop on so I can write words out," Alexander said. "The first thing he said to me was, 'I love you,' and the second thing he said was, 'Please be patient with me.'"

For now, plans for the couple's Feb. 11 wedding and their honeymoon to New Zealand are on hold. Doctors have said Greenhill has a 1 percent chance of mobility.

"Our entire world has taken a very different turn than we thought," Alexander told People. "We had the trip of a lifetime planned for our honeymoon ... Obviously, this situation is extremely trying. But together we can get through this. I know we can." 

According to their GoFundMe page, named "Go Greenhill," the groom-to-be will begin rehabilitation at Atlanta's Shepherd Center when doctors clear him for travel back to Atlanta.

To help with medical costs and transportation, the couple and their loved ones have been asking for donations. So far, they've raised more than $118,000.

WATCH: Man fakes arrest for officer-involved proposal

An Alabama man planned an unusual proposal for his girlfriend that he knew she would never expect.

>> Read more trending stories 

"She knows my every move. I can never surprise her," Daiwon McPherson told after proposing to his girlfriend of five years on Friday.

McPherson, 33, spent days setting up the surprise proposal, in which he and his friends staged a fake arrest with the help of the Mobile Police Department.

McPherson's plan began when he intentionally upset his girlfriend, 28-year-old Shawna Blackmon, and then told her he would take her on a date Friday night to make up for it. 

"She always told me when I proposed to make sure she looked nice. She (had just gotten) her hair done (and) her nails done," McPherson told 

But McPherson didn't show up for the couple's date, and he didn't answer Blackmon's texts or calls. 

Eventually, one of McPherson's friends called Blackmon and told her that he was in trouble. The friend, a member of McPherson's biker community, told Blackmon that he was being chased on his motorcycle by police and that he had a gun. 

The story was especially believable because McPherson does have a gun, and he was previously arrested for fleeing police.

Blackmon rushed to a nearby gas station, where McPherson's friend said police had cornered him.

"I thought he was going to jail," Blackmon said. Police pointed tasers at a kneeling McPherson, and Blackmon told them she would retrieve the gun on his person to hand over to authorities. 

But before she could search for the gun, McPherson reached into his pocket for a ring box and popped the question. 

Blackmon said yes.

"This proposal was designed around a message I wanted to get out that not all cops are bad cops," McPherson wrote on Facebook. "I did this to get people's attention because this is what we are used to seeing so I used (the situation) to create a positive message." 

"I appreciate the way he did it," Blackmon told of the proposal.

Father, daughter perform epic surprise wedding dance

What wedding guests thought was going to be a traditional father-daughter dance turned out to be an epic mashup of popular songs and entertaining dance moves. 

>> Read more trending stories  

For nearly four minutes, Mikayla Ellison Phillips and her father, Nathan Ellison, danced in front of 400 wedding guests to songs including LMFAO's "Party Rock," Sugar Hill Gang's "Apache," M.C. Hammer's "U Can't Touch This" and NSYNC's "Bye Bye Bye."

A video of the dance, recorded by wedding videographer Bethany Petersen, has garnered more than 4 million views on YouTube.

"I'm the oldest and the only girl, so that was my dad's only chance to do something like this," Phillips, 25, told ABC News. "He, for years, has talked about doing that, and he finally convinced me."

Phillips, a trained dancer who lives in Utah, and Ellison spent only a week choreographing the dance and practicing its execution.

"Every night (in the week) prior to the wedding, we'd run through it a few times," Phillips told ABC. "I think since we'd talked about it for years that it was pretty easy for it to come together."

Phillips said seeing how happy her father was during and after the dance "was a dream fulfilled."

Woman asks 85-year-old grandfather to be 'flower grandpa' at wedding

In the months before an engaged couple's big day, lots of planning and preparation goes into making sure their wedding day will be a memorable one that goes off without a hitch.

What color will the bridesmaids' dresses be? What song will the bride walk down the aisle to? Who will be the flower girl? 

>> Read more trending stories 

One Georgia woman broke tradition when she asked her 85-year-old grandfather to be the "flower girl" at her Oct. 1 wedding.

"The idea of having him be a 'flower girl' started out as a joke, and I teased him that I was going to have him wear a tutu and patent leather shoes like a typical flower girl," Jennifer Briskin, 29, told Country Living. "He liked to joke that this would make him 'go viral!' My whole family thought that I was crazy, but I couldn't let it go. I wanted our wedding to be memorable and different without being cheesy, and I thought that this would be the perfect addition to our ceremony."

Briskin officially asked her grandfather, Stanley, to be her "flower grandpa" a few months before the wedding in a message she had embroidered on a handkerchief.

"Papa, will you be my flower grandpa? Love, Jen," the message read.

Briskin, who said that her grandfather is an avid walker, said that he was hesitant to take on the role. 

"He was worried that he wasn't up for the task, but I assured him that if two-year-olds can do it, he could figure it out," Briskin told BuzzFeed. "He insisted on practicing before the big day, so my sister Allison, my maid of honor, bought a pumpkin bucket and fake leaves from the dollar store and they practiced on his driveway."

On the day of the wedding, Stanley was the last person to walk down the aisle before Briskin and her parents. Wedding guests didn't know that Stanley would be serving as a flower grandpa.

"As soon as he walked out, I heard constant laughter," Briskin said.

Stanley forgot what he had practiced with his granddaughters, but he entertained guests while he walked down the aisle.

"He still wasn't sure what he was supposed to do, and instead of throwing the petals down the aisle, he started throwing them on our guests," Briskin said. "It felt like our style to have all of our guests laughing right before we started our life as husband and wife."

Briskin said that during the wedding reception, guests treated Stanley "like a celebrity."

"Everyone wanted a moment with the man of the hour, and he could not have been more proud of himself," she told Buzzfeed. "He still enjoys talking about all of the guests' reactions to his big moment."

Briskin, who said she spends lots of time with her grandfather, said she always knew she wanted him to play a special part in her wedding. 

"I feel very lucky to have a grandfather who, at 85, is still young at heart and willing to participate in my crazy ideas," she told Buzzfeed. "I'm excited that I have pictures and videos to show my children and grandchildren when I recount stories about my amazing grandfather."

Man donates liver to stranger; she gives him her heart in return

Nearly two years ago, a man donated a piece of his liver to a stranger, and last weekend, she gave him her heart in return. The two were married in a church outside of Chicago this weekend.

>> Read more trending stories  

When doctors diagnosed Heather Krueger, 27, with stage 4 liver disease, they told her she had just a few months to live.

"They immediately told me I was going to need a transplant," Krueger told CBS News. "By that time, I could really feel my body shutting down."

But there wasn't much time to find a donor.

But one day, Chris Dempsey, who had never met Krueger, overheard a colleague at work talking about her situation. He decided to get tested to see if he'd be a match. The former Marine said he is programmed to help others.

"I spent four years in the Marine Corps and learned there never to run away from anything," Dempsey told CBS. "So I just said to myself, 'Hey, if I can help, I'm going to help.'"

After finding out that they were compatible, the two met for lunch to discuss what the process would be like.

The transplant was successful, and the two stayed in touch, eventually falling in love. Last weekend, a year and a half after the liver transplant, they tied the knot in a ceremony in front of family and friends.

"You are the most incredible man I have ever known," Krueger told Dempsey in her wedding vows. "You believe in me, and you make me feel amazing every single day. Because of you, I laugh, smile, and I dare to dream again."
