A woman has raised eyebrows online after sharing her plans to recreate her late mother's wedding dress by using some of her hair.
Despite the tragic passing of her mother, the bride to be reckons she's found the perfect way for her mum to still be involved in her big day.
"I found out my mother was ill in 2014 and from that point onward I began to collect her hair." the woman wrote on Sewport.
"At the time I wasn't quite sure why I was collecting it, however now I think I do. I'd like the dress to be made from my mother's hair intertwined into the dress design.
"I've been collecting her hair for over four years now and have one large box of it which I think will be enough. I know it's a strange request and I know that it may cost quite a bit so I've set aside *$30,000 NZD* to make it happen."
The woman admits that some people might think her request is 'weird', but she's adamant this is how she wants to pay respects to her mother.
