Throwback - This bespoke wedding dress we made for a bride who got married in San Francisco City Hall was so much fun!

The bride wanted a dress that she could wear more than just once, perfect in the eyelet fabric. We love the groom who is holding up his documents, truly happy to have taken the step into marriage. 😍

BRIDAL RESTYLING 🪡
Because the wedding gown is too beautiful to be worn only once, Adina decided to restyle it and turn it into a shorter cocktail/party dress. It will look incredible! ❤️

✨ We want to share this beautiful sleeve detail with you; a scalloped bell sleeve.

Some brides choose bridal styles that cover arms and the back for a more modest bridal look. They are cautious about how much skin they reveal, especially for the wedding service. 👰🏻‍♀️

What happens in a bridal fitting?🪡
Our fitters advise you and pin your bridal gown. They make suggestions on how to create the best look for your wedding day. Is is essential to bring the correct underwear and shoes to the appointment to ensure the best fit and apply the right length to your dress. As you can see in the picture, we need to pin each dress layer separately.

The fitting appointment is also an opportunity to discuss how you want to manage your dress during your wedding day. For example, we can add a bustle or a hand loop to allow a boogie in the evening.
