“Elliot proposed last August at the Gardens, and we have both always wanted an outdoor wedding, so the location means a lot to us and was worth the [bigger] price tag.”
(Warning: Shameless plug ahead.)
“After many months of searching, being discouraged by [preowned] designer price tags, and searching some more, I decided to have my dress made. Risky? Yes, especially because Danielle (my seamstress/designer/hero) and I live in different states. However, let me assure you, I have no regrets. I found Danielle’s shop on Etsy and loved her work. If any one of you is considering having a custom made dress, hire Danielle – she is marvelous to work with and ridiculously talented. I found the polka dot fabric at Target. It’s actually a curtain, but it’s exactly what I wanted: textured, light-weight, and white-on-white polka dots.
The shape and structure were taken from the “Lucindia” J. Crew dress.
