Eeeeekkkk I love my custom mermaid gown
My journey has been a long one
I started of at bridal shops looking at dresses and there was none I fell in love with … Each dress I saw had something lacking and I wanted something unique – I fell in love with Vera, Lazard, monique, but something was missing..
I came across lots of Australian designers and one particular dress caught my attention … [content moderated for violation of Terms of Service]
Of course I couldn’t go to Australia much less afford a tens of thousand dollar dress – so I started looking for a way to find my dream dress without the price tag – then I found the wedding bee and I found the thread for the custom made dresses in china – the bee helped me with modifications I wanted to make
I took a year to do my research and when I was satisfied, I took the plunge – I gave myself 8 months and it was frustrating at times but I stayed at it until I got the look I wanted – a beaded blush mermaid dress with a dramatic bottom
The dress finally arrived and I panicked – but then I went in for alterations, tried it on in natural lighting and I felt AH-amazing – the bridal team could not believe the detail and loved the colour
I found my unique dress and veil and I am in love love love
Here are some photos

That dress looks great on you. I really love the bottom half of the dress, it’s different than most. I can’t really explain it but maybe it’s just the simplicity of the fabric coming straight down rather than the elaborate curls and ruffles I’ve seen on other dresses. It’s looks fantastic. Also, random compliment, you have lovely collarbones hahaha.

GLAMBYLEO: Purling: TaraMay_: beautyofdreams: KeeKalena: mkendrick: blankenshiptobe: Thank you so much ladies – it means so much for others to like something you love
MrsPierce2014: thank you very much – i didnt expect it to be this beautiful either
taylor15220: thank you so much – the bottom is sooo simple yet dramatic – i love the contrast to the dtailsed odice – and the way it is fitted means i can move, sit and dance …
MrsWFit: definitely – most people think having an inspired/replica dress is always bad and looks cheap etc – you can definitely have a win win situation ( with time and the patience of a saint obviously lol)
