CUSTOM GOWNS FOR THE CUSTOM GIRL

Filtering by Category: Veils

Brittany

Julia Wilde

Brittany first appeared in our inbox with an inquiry about a custom red wedding gown. The day of her appointment arrived and in walked a dazzling blonde, her arms full of magazine pages and a pinterest board devoted to red dresses. Let's call a spade a spade here. We love a left-field bride, but this was a big statement, and her mother and I looked on with anticipation as Brittany slipped on one white dress after another before she eventually came to a red one.

She was irrefutably, incontestably, and stunningly... right.

The girl lit up the room in red; nothing else came close. To this day, why this is true of Brittany and a red dress is still something of mystery.

Anyway, magical color established, Kathryn immediately began sketching into Brittany's requirements:  V-neck, drop waist, deep ruby red silk? Check, check, and check.

Enjoy the breath-taking result on this Lady in Red, married one fine November day in historic lower Manhattan.

(And can we also just note the fact that she got to flip the traditional bride-in-white, maids-in-color move - and added red shoes to complete her ladies' outfits? I mean, come on. How amazing is that?!)

Diana

Julia Wilde

Pink! Short! Lace! Brooklyn! Let us count the ways we love Diana. As an architect, Diana's passion is texture, and she very much brought that love to the creation of her dress. Of course, her OTHER passion for all things '50s and Chanel couture didn't hurt the process either. She did not want a traditional gown, and felt that keeping the hemline short was the most true to her. She fell head over heels for a beautiful french lace, to which we added literally thirteen other different textures and colors, and the rest is history. The dress, like her vintage-inspired wedding, felt simultaneously like a departure into the (very stylized) past and a celebration very close to home. To read more about her spectacular day, check out this feature on Ruffled! Cheers, Diana!

Kitty

Julia Wilde

Kitty was a classic, feminine bride who adored lace, and wanted to incorporate it in a way that would be appropriate for a garden wedding overlooking the Hudson River.  We kept the lines clean, called attention to her beautiful collar bone with a strapless neckline, and used a stunning, intricate lace that shone as the star of the show. At the last minute, the weather turned cold for the wedding day and we designed a white fur wrap with a big blue satin bow to keep our bride warm.  Kitty's mother (whose dress we also designed, along with the beautifully colored watermelon bridesmaid gowns) told us that this was her very favorite item of clothing at the wedding. So, ladies, if you're concerned about Murphy's Law hitting your wedding, sometimes a closed door does indeed open a fashionable window!

Check out the bride's family below - and note Kitty's bouquet, which is especially outstanding.
