A beautiful lace and organza wedding dress for an older bride created for an amazing, EM Bride Jackie Clements is the feature of this week’s bride spotlight. We are so pleased to be sharing pictures sent to us by the bride herself of her on her big day.
We met Jackie at a wedding fair on a very rainy day that turned out to be quite a great outing for us. She was with her fiancé and they made us laugh even in the short time we spent with them. She soon sent him away as she wanted to get down to business talking about her dress and she didn’t want him to know anything about it. She explained to us that she had been trying to look for a perfect wedding dress for an older bride but she didn’t want something frumpy or old fashioned. We were excited when she decided to book an appointment to come and see us in the shop there and then.
When Jackie came to see us, it was really lovely to go over the details of different wedding dresses she had tried on and she described to us her likes, dislikes, body-loves and body-hates and what she envisioned herself in. We had a good laugh going over pictures of some dresses she had previously tried on and didn’t like very much. We created a sketch for Jackie and she was very happy with it.
We explored different options of fabrics for the main part of the dress and Jackie decided that she really wanted an organza and lace A Line wedding dress with a beaded cord lace and a pleated waist detail. We added in lace cap sleeves because she said she wanted to cover the tops of her arms and a pleated satin waist band into the design.
We were excited to get cracking. Our very talented dressmakers created Jackie’s wedding dress and she came in for her first fitting. Brides are usually very nervous at their first fitting and Jackie wasn’t any different. She came with her daughter and we went over all the tweaks she wanted applied to just the neckline and skirt to make it perfect for her. She also decided to add a beautiful beaded appliqué at the middle of the pleated satin waist band just for that added ‘wow’ effect. The finished dress was stunning.
