Real Wedding: Princess Bride Gown

 I adore Bride Kate's beautiful September 2015 wedding in Milwaukee! She ordered the Princess Bride gown and the Ivory Birdcage veil from my collection. Kate had a really special request to have part of the lining of her wedding gown be made from her Grandmother's wedding gown! How sweet is that!It made her gown so special and made just for her.

A wedding gown with pockets adds a chic and classic element.

Real Wedding, A Very Important Date

 Bride Jenny wore the Very Important Date dress to her August 2015 wedding in Chicago!  We customized the dress slightly by adding an illusion lace neckline to the strapless dress style.  Love the way everything turned out and the bride looks amazing in the short wedding dress with her strappy heels!

Flower Girl and Bride Photo Shoot Wedding Inspiration PART 2

 It's no secret that lace is one of my favorite fabrics to work with, I always look for the softest most comfortable laces preferably cotton blends but my new favorite fabric is seersucker. Pictured below is the Lollipop style dress in navy and white seersucker with a bow sash in white cotton and a pretty little ruffle collar and eyelet hem paired with a lace flower girl headband. The Lollipop dress comes in several color options and the sash color can be customized.
The bride is wearing a brand new design titled 'Flutter Sleeve Lace Dress' in white lace (also available in Navy). I am so excited about this style as it is available in a range of colors which I will be sampling and posting to my shop in the coming weeks. This is by far the most comfortable dress in my collection.  It has a separate knit cotton slip for comfort and sizing ease and a waist tie, a racerback detail with a scalloped flutter sleeve that is just so pretty.  This dress would be a great option for bridesmaids, elopement dress, reception dress or quite frankly a great cocktail dress for many types of occasions as it can be dressed up or down very easily.

Real Wedding, Dotted Tulle Wedding Dress

Bride Kristyn wore the Candy Dot Tulle Dress to her May 2015 wedding in Australia! For the ceremony the bride wore a full length tulle skirt over the dress and then removed the skirt to wear the knee length dress to her wedding reception, what a great idea!
