- Wedding: February 2013
So, I was talking with the lovely dress maker that was going to custom make the gown I’d settled on to my measurements. I mentioned to her that I’d been lusting after a Reem Acra gown from the 2006 collection for YEARS that I can’t find anywhere now. I can’t even find a full length pic of it anymore. Just a pic of it I saw long ago in an article about matching wedding cakes to gowns.
Well, much to my happy surprise – after some discussion – she and I devised a plan to get me a similar look. HELLO! I’m so excited…I just might break out in song!
This is the original Reem Acra:
I am going to have the dress made in the sillouette of this Monique Lhuillier – minus the sweetheart neckline – with the blue satin underlay:
I don’t think I could possibly ask for anything more. I am so glad that I brought it up to her! 🙂
Have any of you done a custom dress? What was your experience with it? Please feel free to share pics!
