- Wedding: August 2013
So dress has been located. I’ve even got it hanging in our place (and FH hasn’t peeked), but it’s VERY plain. I mostly bought it as the jumping off point to customize.
It’s actually part of their Bridesmaid’s dress collection (who dresses the bridesmaid in white?!). It’s called Euro Champagne, but on my skintone it’s a perfect white. And I love the True Champagne/Taupe sash. My shoes are Badgley Mischka Zabrina in Blush. So the big question IS…
What types of embellishment work and what doesn’t?
I have free-range to alter and can actually sew. I’d like to play with the champagne and blush colors to pull everything together, plus those colors look fantastic on me. I have to alter the neckline cause I cannot do strapless, so going to add something. I’m torn whether to do a bateau neck or off the shoulder, either way will probably be in lace. Thinking about seed beads in the front seams in white, champagne and/or blush. It’s a lovely dress on it’s own, but in my opinion it needs something to make it bridal.
So suggestions welcomed… but please avoid leave it as is.
