Designing My Wedding Dress

Designing My Wedding Dress

I got married on Sunday 17th August 2014. Me and my Husband were 19 Years old and had just finished our first year of University. Crazy I know, we were Babies!!

So for my Nikka I wanted to wear a dress of colour and not the traditional White dress. I went to many boutiques and I really couldn’t find anything I liked.  I’m very particular in how a dress is cut and super particular when it comes to colour. I really wanted to design my own dress, but at this point I didn’t have the skills to make my own dress well. I didn’t know where to start.

I was speaking to my Aunt and she suggested a seamstress that made wedding dresses. At this point I was so excited that there was a way of making my dream dress exactly how I envisioned it. I started sourcing materials, trims ect and I came up with a design. Everyone who knows me, knows how much I LOVE gold, so it was pretty obvious my dress would also be gold.

I selected my fabrics and it was all coming together. Every little detail was exactly how I wanted it. My mock dress literally fit like a glove, it was PERFECT. I have a love for designing Couture Gowns and this was my first ever creation.

I’m so grateful that I can now make my brides feel the way I did when I wore my dress. Making wedding dresses holds a special place in my heart. The Dress being such an important part of my brides big day, making them feel comfortable and beautiful is so important to me. If you would like a custom made wedding dress please email me on
