As much as we love the creating/ making process of dressmaking, it has to be said that after this stage, there is nothing more gratifying than seeing real brides bring our creations to life on their wedding day. Julie, who was recently married in our ‘Tiffany’ Oscar Lili gown is the perfect example of this; here is where the magic comes to life, giving us the opportunity to capture the emotion of our brides and see the full completed look of the day.
Receiving Julie’s post-wedding photos was an absolute pleasure, we really love it when our brides stay in touch – not only so we can mesmerize over the dress, but to see how personal touches are incorporated through the flowers, venue, colour scheme and bridesmaids dresses. It also gives closure to the dress-picking journey, it’s lovely to see the transformation from the first appointment nerves of not knowing what dress to try on first, too seeing someone in their made to measure chosen wedding dress.
Tiffany is definitely a showstopper of a bridal gown, fishtail style created with unique hand stitched embroidery which has a glowing shimmer throughout, the v scoop on the front and back is very feminine and classy. The shape and cut are so flattering and the gown looks absolutely gorgeous on Julie, we love the tulle single-layered veil that Julie opted for, it is very elegant and graceful without detracting any attention from the dress. It can be said that her bridesmaids’ dresses have followed the glitter theme, the silver colour complements the dress well, glitz galore, loving it! Julie, you have certainly done ‘Tiffany’ justice!
As well as the brilliant photos, we received the kindest and most uplifting post-wedding words; ‘A HUGE thank you to Liliana Dabic for my made to measure wedding dress! I had the BEST time on my dressmaking journey! All the excitement, laughs and ‘sparkles’! Liliana, you made me feel AMAZING!! I LOVE my dress! ‘ At the end of the day, this is our main motivation, seeing how are gowns form part of creating what is such a special day. Knowing our brides feel 10/10 whilst walking down the aisle makes us feel on top of the world!
