I’ve been in ‘almost’ love ever since I saw the gorgeous Eden Bridal Black Label 2420… but like I said… ‘almost’ love. Something was missing… I realized I was in love with the beautiful organza floral design of the skirt… not the entire dress. I like the sweetheart neckline but I want a strapless dress, so I’m wasn’t a big fan of the straps and didn’t care for the beaded lace bodice. I’d prefer something a little more simple
SOOO…. I got crafty with photo shop, removed the parts i didnt like and kept the parts I LOVED! and….. Waa! Laa!! Instant DREAM DRESS created by yours truely 🙂
I got atticted to wedding dress designing so i made a few versions LOL!
Here is the Before and Afters… Let me know what you think! 🙂
The original dress Eden Bridal 2420
My custom Version 1 – Strapless, plain bodice, no sash
My Custom Version 2 – Plain Bodice with long Sash
My Custom Version 3 – Kept only the bling 🙂
Let me know what you think Bees! Has anyone actually done something like this and customized their own gown with a designer? I totally want to make a custom Eden dress now!! 🙂 🙂

@BlondieluvsBling:I love that dress!! We actually have very similar tastes as ive been Looking at VERY similar dresses. My opinion would be maybe you could do custom version 1 but add a crystal belt/sash instead?
*also how would you go about getting that dress? “the custom” would you have it made from scratch or..? Just wondering

You could always send the pictures to one of the replica companies! I know both Milly Bridal and Jeff Liu take custom orders and both have a good reputation.
I think it’s beautiful. I like your custom version 2 the best, with the black sash, btw.

The black sash really defines your waist. that’s what I’m doing. also gives it something different 🙂

TBH I would not like this dress without the sash! I don’t know if I would wear a long sash but at least a jeweled belt or something to define your waist. Very pretty.

This dress is asking for the sash! Gorgeous dress.

I think you should keep the sash it really gives off that hour glass figure look with it. I used Shades of Pale because they specialize in customizing designs. I got my dress custom designed too but I used a combo of a lot of different pictures. And just explained that I wanted “the embroidery&beading from X picture with the neckline from Y picture” ect. They speak perfect English and are really good about asking all kinds of questions that I didn’t even think of and stuff like that.

I have a hard time seeing the material of the bodice but it seems that any seamstress should be able to remove both the sleeves and the beading that are on the bodice. I feel like you would be left with option 1 and then you could add a sash if you wanted to. If you are going with a totally different material then you should check with a seamstress ahead.

I think the black sash can show your good waist figure. I had designed my own wedding dress last month. It is really a good experience. You can get your dreamy wedding dress. So what you should do is to find a wedding dress shop which support custom made. I got my wedding dress from http://www.iyok.net. They provide free custom made service. So I get my dreamy wedding dress not cost more than $300. And hoping you can find a good wedding dresses shops.

I like the original or plain with the sash… the one with nothing looks a little odd to me with all that stuff going on in the bottom half.

Ohhhhhh I love this dress!!!!! So much drama I originally had my heart set on an Eden dress too but couldnt find it to try on:/ but I love it with the black sash .I also think maybe a bling sash will look amazing!
