Custom made wedding dress in progress!

Recommended Posts

So as some of you may know, I am having my dress made by my most wonderful Aunt! I'm am SO happy to have something custom made just for me. smile123.gif Being a plus-size gal, sometimes it's not easy finding things.

 

Anyway, I thought that it might be fun/interesting to post the progress of my dress. We went a couple of weeks ago to buy the material for the dress. Last friday, I had my first fitting. Now let me remind you that the dress may just look like a sack of potatoes right now! lol This fitting was to put the dress on and have it pinned to my actual size. It was so exciting to have this done for me. I have never had anything custom made for me before, especially by someone so special to me.

 

Here's the pics! Please let me know if they are too big or whatever! Thanks!

I can't stress enough how freakin' exciting this is!!

 

I'm going for my second fitting tomorrow, so the pinning that was done last week will all be sewn (sp??) to the proper fit. I'll post some pics afterwards!

 

Enjoy ladies! Feel free to post any comments or questions! :)

really cool, and it's so special that it's being made for you by a family member. my sister made my veil (which is no biggie compared to a whole dress), and i just loved her for it SO much!

 

i like the bones of it so far ... sweetheart neckline and corset back? very nice! can't wait to see it as it progresses! do you have pics of what you'd like the final version to look like?

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
