This dress was my absolute dream. It is ethereal, dreamy, romantic, unique and I think the perfect mix between classic and modern. Best part too is also the dress is one of a kind, there is no other dress like it! I absolutely loved wearing it on my wedding day. I would love another bride to feel as amazing in it as I did.
There are many layers to it, giving it a delicate look - a light tulle layer on top with pieces of lace aplique, and hand sewn 3D flowers. Underneath this a layer of more opaque lace can be seen. It is a soft A line shape, softly falling down over the hips.
The dress showcases a modern triangular take on the sweetheart neck line - edged with a modern and unique geometric squared lace the scoops around to a lower back. This geometric lace is also repeated in a belt for the dress. The use of this modern lace makes for a beautiful mix of hard against the soft floral lace and 3D flowers.
The dress can be strapless or off the shoulder shoulder - as I had an off the shoulder piece made (as shown in pictures) that can be taken on and off. It matches the delicate/ethereal feel with the light tulle material, 3D flowers and vine/leaf detailing.
Hundreds of 3D flowers (each hand sewn) cascade down the dress and long train. They elevate the dress, giving it so much depth, drama, delicacy and the little pearls in the flowers catch the light. I am obsessed with the 3D flowers!!
The base of this dress was bought from Watters in the USA brand new. I loved the base of the dress and knew it had potential to be completely redesigned and become the one of a kind dress I had envisioned. I had the dress completely reconstructed by Meg's bridal (Auckland, New Zealand) they helped me bring my vision to life and make the dress of my dreams a reality - changing the bodice, neckline, adding boning, lace, adding the 3D flowers, changing the dress shape, changing the hemming, making the belt, making the off the shoulder piece and more! The dress in the end is COMPLETELY unrecognisable compared to the original base dress. It truly is one of a kind and I have not come across anything like it.
