- Wedding: August 2015
I wanted to share my so called inspired by wedding dress journey. It started roughly a year ago when my wedding was getting closer (August 2015) and I just didn’t quite love any of the off the rack -dresses (within my 1000 € budget). I read a lit of posts here in Weddingbee and after careful concideration and scanning if seemstresses I chose one. She is here well known Etsy seller and now has her own website.
And the dress? After browsing through thousands of dresses there was just one I just ciuldn’t stop thinking about. It was soooo over the top and most seemstresses saud they wouldn’t even be able to put together a dress like that. Bu luckily this one did.
i must say it’s no picnic to go through with the ‘have your dress made in another conyinent and only see it a few months before the big day’. At the end I started to be a bit trainwreck. I got angry if someone asked if I’d already gotten the dress or even pics. No. Everytime my answer was no. I had given the seemstress 2,5 months to make the dress (she requested 2), but after having received NO pictures in 2 months the seemstress finally requested to get 1 month extra time due to thd heavy bead work. Luckily I had anticipated this (mistly thanks yo all the reviews!) and had cslculated a lot of extra. The dress was now meant to arrive to me in the middle of May. Week before – still no pics. Then I lost it and sent a very angry message to the seemstress. And FINALLY I got the pics. Except the backof the dress was wrong shape. Otherwise to my huge surprise it seemed like the dress I wanted.
Now the seestress needed 1 week o correct the back. My face must’ve been some very weird purple-reddish-blue color. But ofc I said yes, what choice did I have? But for once, she kept her promise. The dress left exactly after 1 week of the original date. Only she didn’t send any pics for me to approve.
We had ordered 2 bridesmaids’ dresses from same place and they turned out perfect. Exactly as the pics we sent. So this was my only comfort, knowing how great the bridesmaids dresses looked like. And then the dress finally came. I will never forget the anxiousness I felt. Nor the overwhelming joy when I saw the dress. It was spectacular! Just perrrrrfect! Of course it’s not 100% same as the inspiration, but ghere’s oprobably over 10.000 price difference.
Here are some pictures for you to see, if any of you have any questions feel free to ask, I’m happy to help! 🙂
