A Stunning Lace and Tulle Ball Gown Wedding Dress for EM Bride, Emma

We designed a beautiful lace and tulle ball gown wedding dress for a really fun EM Bride, Emma.  She was always such a laugh and we had a really lovely time every time she and her Mum came into the shop.

I met Emma when she came to see us after her cousin Michelle, who I knew through networking, had recommended that she give us a try. Emma came to the then very new studio to discuss her wedding dress with me and from the word go, we got on like a house on fire. She was feisty, fun and full of laughs and I just knew that we were in for a happy ride with her. She and her Mum are some of the nicest people I have ever met.

We got talking and Emma explained her ideas for her wedding dress. She told me that she loved tulle and she loved lace and if she wasn’t sure of anything else, she was very sure that she definitely wanted her wedding dress to include those two fabrics.  She showed me pictures of dresses she liked and she also told me that she had no problem whatsoever having a dress designed especially for her.  We asked Emma to try on some of our wedding dresses so that we could see what works and what doesn’t, practically.  We tried on mermaid wedding dresses, A-line wedding dresses and as soon as we tried on the Ariana wedding dress from our Grace and Lace collection, she got this big smile on her face.

Emma loved the sweetheart neckline and overlapping ruched detail of the bodice of Ariana and she also loved the fullness of the skirt.  She made it clear that she definitely wanted her dress to be created in a tulle fabric as she considered it a more whimsical and romantic fabric than duchess satin.  She also advised that she needed the touch of lace to complete the design.  We pinned some lace appliqué we had available in the design studio onto the dress to create cap sleeves and Emma loved the look of it. I got sketching and this is what I came up with for Emma.

We decided to add some more lace detail to Emma’s dress by adding some more lace appliqué to her ruched tulle bodice and also scattered on her full multi-layered tulle ball gown skirt.  She was really excited about the design and could not wait to see the finished dress.

Here are some beautiful pictures of Emma in her wedding dress in our studio and on the big day itself.  Enjoy…

Bridal Wear Woes: Bridesmaid Dresses for Different Shapes and Sizes

Everyone written about in our bridal wear woes blog posts is delighted for us to share their story with you to get a better insight into how we work and how we help solve your bridal wear problems.


Once we had a bride who told us from the very first consultation that indeed she intended to be a bridezilla :).  She said she had waited for so long to have her moment as a bride that she wasn’t going to let anyone make choices for her that she would look back on with regret.  I said to her ‘that’s definitely noble but do be gentle’.  We both laughed.

She chose her dress easily enough because again she knew exactly what she wanted but when it came to the issue of the bridesmaid dresses, we had a ‘bit of a problem‘.  How do you choose 5 bridesmaid dresses for different shapes and sizes and even different everything else?  The bridesmaids were all so different and in every way you can possibly think of; looks, personality, fashion tastes, outlook on life, that the bride did not even know where to start from.

Bridesmaids Dresses for Different Shapes and Sizes

 

Our bride had told the girls that she wanted them all in the same bridesmaid dress and the same colour and she was not changing her mind for anything or anyone.  She really put her foot down even though I had already advised that we could go with complimentary styles and colours for each girl. In spite of this warning, each girl wanted a different bridesmaid dress in a different colour and please believe me when I say every. single. one. of. them liked something different. It sounds incredible and the bride was starting to get stressed out.

We started with colour and our bride had already decided that she would choose her wedding colours after she had chosen the colour of the bridesmaid dresses.  What a mistake this turned out to be.  The bridesmaids were each asked to pick out a colour and of course, they all went for colours that were so different from one another; plus, each of them did not like the colour that the others chose. Oh My Goodness! This was a fun consultation and I could see that my bride was seeing red.  At this point, the bride decided that she didn’t want them to pick the colour any more and she would decide on what colour to go for which she said she would do when we had agreed on the dress.

So we started discussing the design of the dress and each of the girls had explained to us the style of dress that suits her and of course again, they were all very different.  The bride was starting to get quite stressed out again so we had to step in quickly and ask the girls to each pick out 2 dresses that they would like to try on. Practically all the dresses from our 2014 bridesmaid collection were picked out. There were short ones, long ones, strapless ones, one shoulder ones, lace ones chiffon ones; the whole lot!!!

When each girl had tried on her two bridesmaid dresses, we asked everyone what they liked or disliked about each dress.  We took lots of notes and from this, we observed the following trends

  • Most of the girls did not want a strapless bridesmaid dress
  • Many of them did not like satin bridesmaid dresses
  • A few of the girls did not want to show the top of their arms and armpit area. Some even cried ‘back-fat’
  • Some of them had had children and so had lumps and bumps to hide so they were very averse to anything clingy
  • A few of them hated the colour pink or any other too bright colours that made their skin look pale or sallow
  • All of them liked lace (I was shocked that there was something they all loved but our bride made it clear that she could not afford a full lace dress)

I got quite excited because I was getting an eureka moment where a dress had started to dance around in my head that just might work for these very different bridesmaids.  I was envisioning a bodice like EMBM11 with the asymmetric ruching across the bust waist and hips but with more of an A-line skirt so as not to hug the hips too tightly but created in a chiffon fabric with a lovely drape quality and soft handle like EMBM12.

Bridesmaid Dresses for different shapes and sizes
Sketch showing the first design that I recommended

This dress would deal perfectly with all of their concerns except for the covering of arms issue and I was also conscious that the one feature all the girls loved (lace) had not been incorporated into this design.  In spite of the bride’s worries, I decided to add a lacy butterfly sleeve to the design and give it a bit of a statement back so there’s something to look at if the girls turned around and which wouldn’t break the bank.Bridesmaid dresses for different shapes and sizes

Oh, how they all loved this dress.  The bride was a bit stunned when each girl said she could definitely wear this style of dress as it had addressed all their worries perfectly and of course I sat there beaming; literally like a Cheshire cat. Result!

Hope you have enjoyed this story about  how we can help you find perfect bridesmaid dresses for different shapes and sizes and I look forward to sharing the next one with you my lovelies.

Happy wedding planning and many blessings,

Omo xxx

Gorgeous Mikado and Tulle Mermaid Wedding Dress for Carrie

We received this card and a long note from EM Bride Carrie recently and I have to say that it made our day. We try to do our best and can only hope its enough.  That’s what I said to her and its true.  I’m glad she had such an amazing experience with us. 

In her letter, Carrie said “I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything.  Firstly, I want to say thank you for accepting to create the beautiful bridesmaid dress that I found, I was so upset to find out that I wasn’t able to get these beautiful dresses for my bridesmaids, due to being told incorrect info from another shop, but then I found you! During our first meeting, you made me feel so comfortable, and assured me you would be able to create the exact dress I wanted, in various colours, you filled me with confidence and excitement!! All the girls looked so beautiful and the different colours just looked amazing together.

A couple of months down the line, I came to you, again, in despair, as I had had a nightmare with my dream dress. Again, you filled me with hope that you would be able to create my dream dress. I was so so lucky to find you as when we sat down to discuss our options, you ended up designing my very own couture dress, just for me. The design of my dress, included features of two dresses I liked, all combined in one. You listened to what I wanted but also gave me your opinion, which I valued very much.

I couldn’t have been happier with my dress Lisa and thank you wholeheartedly. Can you also pass on thanks to Emily, who made the last minute adjustments for me, on more than one occasion!!!…”

This is the sketch I created of Carrie’s stunning Mikado and Tulle Mermaid Wedding Dress after the first wedding dress consultation that I had with her.

Here are some more pictures of Carrie and her gorgeous bridesmaids.  Estilo Moda Bridal created all their dresses for the day.

Satin and Lace Off Shoulder Wedding Dress for a Really Lovely EM Bride Jackie

Satin and Lace off shoulder wedding dress for one of the most wonderful people we have ever met.

Our bride spotlight this week is on a really lovely bride, Jackie Dodworth who got married in the summer last year.  We met Jackie when she came to our December 2013 Grace and Lace Wedding Dress Collection launch party.  She came with her friend, Katie Balaam who ended up being the collection winner.

Jackie came back to see us after the show to discuss her dress as she had seen a dress on one of the models on the catwalk that she loved. She had her eye on our Anya wedding dress.

Jackie had tried on some other wedding dresses in other shops that she also wanted us to take a look at.  We reviewed the dresses Jackie had tried on and advised that we would prefer to design her one unique design for her and she was very happy with that.  We proceeded to put Anya on Jackie and she looked so beautiful in that dress that she decided it was to be her wedding dress.  Jackie asked if she could personalise Anya to suit her and we asked her to go for it.  She decided to add a lot more corded lace appliqué to the bodice around the bust area at the front and the back to arrive at her dream wedding dress. Here’s the sketch that we created for Jackie at that initial consultation:

Satin and Lace Off Shoulder Wedding Dress
Jackie’s Wedding Dress Sketch

We created Jackie’s dress using a smooth and heavy handle luxury duchess satin complimented with flowery lace appliqué that had been heavily beaded using tiny seed pearls, glass beads and iridescent sequins.  The effect was breathtaking on Jackie.  Here are some beautiful pictures of Jackie on her wedding day.

We also created the dresses for Jackie’s three bridesmaids.  She wanted three bridesmaids dresses in the same design and different colours. The colours Jackie chose were pastel pink, green and lilac.  All the colours complimented one another and each bridesmaid looked beautiful in her ruched sweetheart neckline bodice, full length A-line skirt and ruched straps bridesmaids dress.  Here are some pictures of Jackie’s bridesmaids on the day.

This is what Jackie had to say about her experience with us ‘I had my wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses designed and made by Estilo Moda after struggling to find ‘the one’ in other bridal shops. They put on an amazing fashion show at an open day giving me and my fellow bride lots of wonderful ideas. Lisa and Emelie were wonderful throughout the design, making and fitting process. They listened to my likes and dislikes and created the most beautiful wedding dress for me. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. My bridesmaid dresses were equally as beautiful and all the dresses fitted perfectly. 

Estilo Moda gives you more than a dress. They provide an amazing and thoroughly enjoyable experience. They are professional but friendly and they make you feel like part of the family and special at the same time. They also have an amazing eye for detail and add lots of lovely little touches like personalised hangers. A simple but wonderful touch.

I can’t thank Estilo Moda enough for my wonderful wedding and bridesmaid dresses. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses or just a dress for a special occasion. They will make sure that you get exactly what you want and make sure that it fits you perfectly.

Thank you Lisa and Emelie’

We loved working with you Jackie.  You’re one of the loveliest people we have ever met.  We wish you all the best in your marriage and for the future.

Many blessings and lots of love

Omo and the entire Estilo Moda Bridal team

Lace A-Line Wedding Dress With Sleeves – Alison’s From Sketch to Dress

Alison wanted us to design a wedding dress with sleeves for her based on a dress from our Grace and Lace Wedding Dress Collection.  The changes she wanted on her dress were to add a sleeve, to change the inner skirt from a mermaid to a petticoat and to make it a lace up back instead of a zip and button up back.

We loved creating this stunning dress for Alison.  We created it with the alencon lace fabric and very soft tulle and she looked beautiful in her stunning lace A-line wedding dress with sleeves if we may say so ourselves.  See our post featuring more pictures of Alison’s wedding dress with sleeves and her bridesmaids; whose blue satin strapless bridesmaids dresses we also created.

A Beautiful Bride, An Estilo Moda White Mermaid Wedding Dress and Four Stunning Teal Taffeta Bridesmaids Dresses

Amanda is another of those lovely brides that I met while I still worked from my garage. She said to me that she always knew she wanted to use our services from the first day we met. She said the fact that I worked from a garage was not a deterrent in any way.

White Mermaid Wedding Dress

I met Amanda two years ago and even though some suppliers worry that two years ahead of a wedding is too early a time to plan, I’ve always been of the premise that we plan alongside the bride and work with her timelines.

Amanda wanted a white mermaid wedding dress that would show off her curves. She had not tried on any dresses at the time she came to see me but she was sure of what she wanted and did not feel the need to go anywhere else.  She showed me a picture of a dress she felt would suit her and asked me to design something using that picture as a guide.  We designed a beautiful white mermaid wedding dress for Amanda which had a beautiful organza strapless sweetheart neckline, asymmetric ruching on the bodice and a tiered multi-layered skirt.  Amanda’s dress had the most stunning bead work created with glass beads, iridescent sequins and white pearls along the neckline and on the edge of each of the tiers on her dress and on the edge of her corset lace up back. To say she loved this stunning white mermaid wedding dress we created for her, would be the understatement of the year. For Amanda’s bridesmaids, we created gorgeous teal blue bridesmaids dresses that were cocktail length.  They had a similar strapless sweetheart neckline as Amanda’s wedding dress and ruching on the bodice but their skirt’s were A-line. Each of them looked so beautiful.  Amanda got married in August 2014 and she had a wonderful day.  Here are some pictures Amanda sent to us of her and her lovely bridesmaids on their big day.

Amanda sent us an email recently and this is what she had to say:

“I had my dresses made by Lisa and the team and I was amazed by the support and the great service that was provided by the team. My dress is exactly what a wanted and was amazing. My bridesmaids dresses all looked great and the girls felt wonderful.
Lots of my guests was amazed at the detail that went in to my dress and i would highly recommend Estilo Moda if you are looking for a dress maker to create your dream dress. I cannot thank you enough for everything you done. You made the whole process a stress free journey and I enjoyed coming to see you all and the progress of my dress it’s just a shame you only get to wear your wedding dress once. Thanks for everything ladies and I wish you all the best in the future of dress making”

I really hope you have enjoyed viewing pictures from Amanda’s wedding and you have been inspired by her gorgeous wedding dress and stunning bridesmaids dresses.

Happy wedding planning and many blessings,

Omo xx

Beautiful Blush Pink Wedding Dress for EM Bride Caroline

Blush Pink Wedding Dress

Caroline and her Mum came to visit us early last year not long after we moved into our beautiful Estilo Moda home and they simply loved the ambience in the boutique.  More than that, they were delighted with the service they received.

Blush Pink Wedding Dress - Estilo Moda Bridal Reviews
Estilo Moda Bride Caroline Evans

Caroline advised me that she really wanted to a wedding dress with a keyhole back but did not feel that she could pull it off.  I advised her that with superior design, anyone can pull off a beautiful keyhole back and she decided to trust us to make this happen for her.

We designed the most beautiful blush pink wedding dress for Caroline that she loved.  She looked simply amazing in her wedding dress. Caroline’s dress had a lacy cap sleeve, sweetheart neckline and a gorgeous keyhole back.  Her ivory lace was lined with the most delicate blush pink duchess satin fabric and the same fabric was used to create a waist band for her.  She had stunning pearl buttons on the closure of the dress and her full skirt flared out into an amazingly gorgeous chapel train.  The effect of seeing Caroline in her blush pink wedding dress was breathtaking.

Lucy’s Dusky Pink Bridesmaids Dresses

We met Lucy at a wedding fair in Milton Keynes and she was excited from day one about our royal blue bridesmaids dress.  She and her bridesmaids had a look at the 50s style dress and agreed that it was definitely within the style ideas that they had been exploring.  They told us that the only downside was that they really wanted long bridesmaids dresses.  Emelie and I looked at each other and laughed as we told them that they could have anything they wanted with us ;-), (within reason as we have truly heard of some completely outrageous ideas for bridal wear).

When the ladies came to see us, Lucy mentioned that they really wanted dusky pink bridesmaids dresses and they had a look through our huge colour swatch of numerous fabrics in over 500 colours. They tried on our best selling blue 50s style lace bridesmaids dress as well as another very popular green chiffon long bridesmaids design and the consensus was that it would be lovely to combine both dresses.  We were delighted to do that for them and here are the results!

The Lovely Louise, An Illusion Bodice Wedding Dress and Three Stunning Duck Egg Blue Chiffon Bridesmaids Dress

We love Louise.  From the moment, we clapped eyes on her we thought she was fabulous and in fact, we had her model for us for our 2014 Grace and Lace Bridal collection and she looked amazing in all the pictures.

Louise got married early August 2014 and she ordered a wedding dress and three bridesmaids dresses from us and wow!, we are amazed and stunned by how stunning not just Louise but all three of her bridesmaids looked as well.  We are so proud to share these pictures with you all.

We created for a Louise a customised version of our Amira dress from the Grace and Lace Collection. Where Amira is a vintage lace illusion bodice wedding dress with a sheath style satin chiffon skirt, Louise had the same bodice but a silk feel chiffon full A-line skirt created for her instead. The result was amazing.

 

 

 

Again, the bridesmaids dresses were a personalisation of one of the designs avaible in our design studio also. The girls went for a duck egg blue chiffon fabric with a ruched strapless dipped base bodice and matching full A-line skirt which complemented Louise’s wedding dress skirt beautifully. Each girl had a different embellishment on her ivory sash to match their different personalities and tastes.

 

 

 

 

Louise looked like an angel in her wedding dress.  The dress draped beautifully on her tall frame and the bodice stood proudly yet stunningly delicately against her body. She looked amazing in the plunging V shape of the back and the lace trim whcih lay delicately against her at the necklines and sleeveline of her bodice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you have enjoyed looking at Louise’s pictures and have been inspired by her breathtaking illusion bodice wedding dress and her bridesmaids’ stunning chiffon dresses also.

Perhaps, you would also like to discuss your own unique wedding dress or you have seen different dresses you wish could be customised to create your very own dream dress.  Why not give us a call or send us an email to see if we can be of help.  Bespoke is not always ridiculously priced and we pride ourselves on charging honest prices.

Call 01908925152 or email info@estilomoda.co.uk to find out the options available to you.

Many blessings and happy planning,
