I was (so very) lucky to get the wedding dress of my dreams made by you (my super talented mother) and will forever, fondly, look back at the process and (of course) wearing the dress. There are many (very good) reasons why women get pre-designed dresses for their big day. Some just don’t really know what they want . . . or what will look good on them . . . or they don’t even know where to start to find a designer or dress maker . . . or they think that it will be just too expensive. In my opinion, if you have the time, vision, patience and trust in a designer I think its well worth it to have your “dream dress” made into a reality.
Last week I posted this picture of Jamie Beck’s wedding dress . . .
So pretty. She had it made by Katie Ermilio (granddaughter of Grace Kelly’s personal clothier).
You can read more about the process they went through to make the dress here. Below are some pictures that she took along the way . . . the process looks pretty familiar. 🙂
It took 36 hours for Katie to make this veil (aren’t you happy I didn’t ask to have lace added to the end of mine?!)
Her husband had his tux made by Katie’s father (a third generation suit maker who designed Augusta’s iconic “Green Jacket”).
They look pretty darn good if you ask me!
