Blush Tea-length Wedding Dress
Sabrina fought the odds to find her dream dress after finding herself without anything to wear just 6 weeks before the big day.
I was only too pleased to help this pretty lady, as it’s just too upsetting for me to consider a bride without a dress!!
We chose a pretty and subtle blush colour, with matching lace with a rose design and a deep and delicate scalloped edging which was snipped up, and re-worked and appliqued to create a pretty waistline and sleeve edging. The neckline was also appliqued with individual lace roses.
Sabrina wanted a lot of movement in her tea-length skirt, but didn’t want to be too formal and flared with a net-petticoat. I recommended to use layers of crepe satin and satin chiffon circular skirts, which are eternally flattering on every woman. I added extra movement to the hem by stretching and wiring to create a pretty and softly frilled hem.
I loved Sabrina’s accessories too. She had originally chosen a cute fur capelet, but Sabrina and James were graced with a sunny late September day. Sabrina’s shoes were a slightly daring choice, which I loved! A chunky deep red, suede platform heel, I love a red shoe, and these were just delicious! The vintage floral head piece needs a special mention too!
