The dress was also embellished with small, red tomatoes, to fit the wedding’s theme. “The inspiration was a space pirate meets a tomato patch — because it was just silly and fun,” Andrews wrote on the TikTok video.
In the clip, Andrews said that she did get a bit nervous along the way.
“When it came time to sew together I was scared because I could only trust that it would fit — no time to go back,” she wrote. “Thankfully it was ok so I could add the little tomatoes!”

And Andrews’ wedding dress wasn’t the only attire she made for the big day. She also made the groom’s outfit – which looked like an astronaut suit – as well as her own hand-beaded socks to look like a starry sky, continuing in the theme, according to another TikTok video.
