I went through some dress drama, but I ended up very happy in the end. There were some alterations, some additions, and some angry seamstresses… but I think the result is perfect!!! Here is the ceremony version:
Here is a close up shot of the lace bolero:
And here is the reception look!
The dress is Terani Couture, with some major alterations, and I commissioned the lace bolero custom made. I cut the strap off myself and sewed hook-and-eyes into it to make it removable.
I’m so excited to finally be able to share it! (Unfortunately, my Mom was taking pictures and she didn’t really get any that showed the skirt all the way to the floor. That’s why we hire professionals.)
