dress stalking.

custom wedding dressi’m a wedding dress stalker.  there, i said it.  i see, i obsess, and then i can’t take my eyes away.  when i first saw this colorado wedding, here, i gasped.  i mean, look at that dress.  it’s just silly how gorgeous it is.  it’s almost unfair.  it’s unique, it fits her like a glove, and i feel like it speaks to her personal style.

i really can’t say enough fabulous things about suzanne {of atelier des modistes}! she completely understood my vision, and somehow (even though i was not like this for any other aspect of my wedding) i trusted her to spin up the dress of my dreams! the chevron, ruffled look was directly inspired from a dress i brought in as inspiration, but really, everything else came from her imagination. the entire fitting and creation process of getting a custom dress made was probably one of my favorite aspects of the overall wedding planning experience.

custom wedding dressthe entire experience was so personal, from suzanne helping me pick out the most perfect sparkly miu miu wedges to pair with the dress, to her hand stitching our initials right over my heart on the inside of the dress. i highly recommend going the custom route not only because you come out with a perfectly fitted gown that looks exactly like you dreamt, but also taking a budget into consideration, even with an unbelievable amount of time spent hand stitching my dress, it was still less expensive than a vera or a monique, and it was one of a kind!

well, i’m convinced.  i’m certain that if i could just keep having weddings, i’d get a dress made just for me every single time.  how about you?
