Finally, PICTURES of My Wedding Gown!!!
Posted 23 November 2008 - 05:26 PM
So this morning I found out that Brides.com had the full Fall 2008 runway pictures from Rivini---- who designed my gown. i copied and pasted them sooo quickly so i could run here and show them to you!
to read the full story of how i found and fell in love with my dress, click here: http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t31689
i am, however, kinda disgusted with the face and make up of the model. it's not the regular "bridal" makeup but the model still looks cute despite the dark lipstick. i wish they had a softer makeup. there must be a reason why the designer chose this makeup style for her Fal 2008 collection.
Now, pictures!!! here are pictures of my high-fashion Rivini couture gown....
This picture is from Brides Magazine. It was part of a featured article titled "The Finer Things: Indulge your passion for high fashion and couture-inspired details" My dress was under "Trumpets' Flair"
my dress is on the right:
i didn't want to post this picture until i saw the professional ones. now that i have the run way pics, here's me with my wedding gown on:
that's a stolen pic because we weren't allowed to take pics. my mom decided to break the rule and take a quick pic with my camera phone. hehehe go mommy!
i am a huuuuge fan of the sweetheart neckline so i asked the style director to change the neckline. just one simple request and i will get my sweetheart neckline gown!
I am sooo happy!!! I always have dreamed of wearing a designer gown for my wedding day. i can't believe it's actually happening!!! i am so excited for my gown to finally be here and to wear it again.
the dress looks wwaaay better in person. the lace that covers the bodice is amazing. it cascades down to your waist instead of ending in just straight line. the tulle accent on the bottom has alencon lace, chantilly lace, and point d'esprit lace. the dress is very detail oriented!
when i was dreaming of my gown i knew i wanted lace. another important thing for me is to be multi-layered, to have contrasting fabrics and details. i love how the silk covered buttons line the spine on the back and goes all the way down to the skirt of the dress.
i think my gown is very unique and i am in love with it!
as for veils, i will be wearing a cathedral veil, designed by Vera Wang, that goes all the way down to the floor. since my gown has no train, i decided to get a long veil to create a tail. my veil is also a 2-tiered veil with the 2nd veil hitting my elbows.
the style director for Rivini was at the trunk show so he showed me how to make my dress even more bridal by wearing a combination of 2 veils. my 2nd veil will be a flowered point d'espirit short veil that only covers the face. HOWEVER, he did something to it where the lace part covers the bun of my hair. then the long veil will go on as usual displaying the small flowered veil inside.
for the reception i'm considering getting a blush pink veil with ivory alencon lace on the trimmings. my wedding is pink and ivory so i think it will be fun to have!
for jewelry, i am buying chandelier crystal and pearl earings. pearl necklace and a pearl bracelet with a crystal charm. i am also wearing a high tiara.
yea, i'm going all out. this is my wedding and there's 101 different looks to go for so why not have fun and experiment? try them all! =) a bride should never be afraid to enjoy and have fun with their styles!
i am sooo happy!!!!!!!!
i think this has been the FUNNEST part of planning the wedding. =) i love the fashion aspect of a wedding!!!
