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.

Bridal Wear Woes: I Hate Every Dress My Mum Loves

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.


 

So we had a bride once who knew exactly what she did not want in a wedding dress and not much of what she wanted.  Unfortunately, for this bride, Mum knew exactly what she wanted her daughter to wear and she was not worried about expressing her preferences strongly.  Don’t get me wrong, we loved this Mum as we do all the Mums who come with their daughters to discuss wedding dress design with us. We love Mums. They can be the most long suffering, self-controlled and indulging people you would ever meet but in this case, Mum made it clear to us that she came with her daughter to help and certainly help, she would.

The problem arose where every single dress Mum picked out was exactly what our bride did not want.  Bride said to me that she thought they were all beautiful but she just knew that she wanted something different but didn’t know what it was.

Of Alexi, she said she loved the soft and romantic swirls of the organza and tulle skirt but she definitely didn’t want a one shoulder. From this, we highlighted the word soft and romantic. Mum thought the mermaid silhouette of Alexi was sexy and would show off her curves but Bride was adamant that she did not want to show off any curves in her wedding dress.

Of Ariana, she said how much she loved with the way the full circle skirt draped and swished but she certainly did not want a strapless. From this, we got a better understanding of the fact that she did not want any attention on her hips.

Ariana - Satin A-Line Strapless Wedding Dress

Of Amira, she said she was very very very smitten by her deep V low back and the beautiful cotton lace with big leaves and flowers appliquéd on the bodice but wanted a skirt that would hide her hips moreStatement back wedding dress milton keynes

Of Aleah, she initially thought she had found the one and actually considered a mermaid underskirt and A-Line tulle overlay featured on Aleah for a long time as a fabulous compromise between hers and Mum’s choices. She eventually said she would rather keep the lace illusion bateau neckline bodice and the A-line tulle overlay trimmed with a corded lace border but have the satin mermaid underskirt as an A-Line as well.

Aleah - Lace and Tulle Illusion Neckline Mermaid Wedding Dress

I got super excited at this point because I had the perfect dress dancing around in my head for her.  You would think that after almost 12 years of doing this, I would be all “weddingdressed out” (my own special term for it) by now but No, I still get incredibly excited when a design starts to fall in place and a bride’s personality and preferences start to evolve. Anyway, back to Bride. I created this sketch for her and showed it to her and Mum and oh the expression on their faces!

Low Back lace wedding dress

At this point, she proceeded to show me a picture she had saved on her phone which had features that were so similar to the dress I had sketched for her and I was thinking ‘err, why did you not show me this picture when I asked for your inspiration’ but to be honest, I’m happy she didn’t show it to me because it would have looked like we just copied that design.  In any case, we had so perfectly found the one and it may have taken us quite a few try ons, some tears and some tantrums but it was what was in her head all along and she now had the 100% confirmation that it was her dream wedding dress. Plus, she had the added bonus of picking out every fabric and trim that would be used to create her dress; making it even more of a dream wedding dress than any other.   Mum, on the other hand, still felt that she could have turned on the full sex appeal and hugged her curves to within an inch of their very existence but she was really happy and I could see that her daughter’s joy meant more to her than anything else. Result!

Hope you have enjoyed this story and I look forward to sharing the next one with you my lovelies.

Happy wedding planning and many blessings,

Omo xxx

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:

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 Mermaid Illusion Neckline Wedding Dress – From Sketch to Dress for EM Bride Katie

The design of Katie’s stunning lace mermaid illusion neckline wedding dress was born of her seeing our Aleah Wedding Dress which has proved to be one of our biggest best selling wedding dresses of all time.  Katie loved Aleah but because of her very petite frame, she wanted a wedding dress that would be more form fitting.  Katie asked us to design a dress along the lines on Aleah that would suit her requirements for a lace mermaid illusion neckline wedding dress and that is exactly what we did.  The rest they say is history.

This is how we start our process for both our new collections and for each individual bride. Each and every one of our Brides is given a sketch to keep to help them remember their stunning wedding dress design. It’s an experience all our brides enjoy and many say is extremely unique.

The back of Caroline is the real feature, she has an illusion neckline created by just the lace with gorgeous Ivory buttons. For those of you that love a feature back or a backless wedding dress, this is definitely one for you. Caroline’s full skirt is created with a Chiffon fabric which creates a whimsical elegant look.

MILLIE SAVVY CHIC BACKLESS WEDDING DRESSES

Here is Millie, she is our sophisticated woman . Millie has an illusion Neckline which is created from an Illusion fabric. The Bodice is covered in a Corded Lace Applique which is hand stitched on and lightly beaded. The lace carries on from the sweetheart neckline down to the hips.

This is one backless wedding dress that spells statement, elegance and fun all at once.  Catherine has an Ivory soft Lace bodice in a boat neckline, with lace cap sleeves.

She has three quarter length sleeves in the soft lace with buttons at the edge. The front has a Lace illusion neckline with a sweetheart lining visible. The waist has a Satin Sash with a lovely Satin bow to finish it off. The Back of the dress is incredible. Instead of your usual key hole back, Kate has a heart shaped key hole. The heart is emphasised with a lace border and buttons at the neck to hold the shape in place. You can also see the Satin Sash tied at the back into a neat bow. With this dress you can showcase those incredible shoes that usually no one is able to see.

EMMA SAVVY CHIC BACKLESS WEDDING DRESSES

Here is Emma, our classic beauty. Emma has a corded lace appliqued bodice in a strapless sweetheart neckline. The edge of the neckline has a beautiful lace edging to emphasise the shape. The skirt of Emma is in a Classic ball gown silhouette which flatters any body shape. The skirt is created using a Tulle fabric with a light scatter of lace applique, which compliments the bodice. Her back is a zip closure with a dipped back neckline, again emphasised with a lace border

DARCY SAVVY CHIC BACKLESS WEDDING DRESSES

Here is Darcy, she is our subtly sexy dress. Darcy has a vintage flowery lace illusion neckline with a sweetheart lining visible. The lace from the bodice carries on to the top of the hips. The skirt is a sheath style which is created using a Satin Chiffon Fabric. Satin Chiffon has the qualities of both Satin and Chiffon which creates a stunning draped skirt. She has a low lace V- shaped back detail, like the front the lace carries on to the top of the hips. The back has pleating horizontally on the derriere which gives you that womanly curvy shape.

Estilo Moda Bridal Reviews – Wedding Dress Design from Sketch

Stunning pictures of our brides dresses showing their sketch and then the finished product.  This is how we bring your wedding dress dreams to reality.  Our wedding dress design experience is one every bride deserves. Our Estilo Moda Bridal Reviews show you how pleased our brides are with the wonderful designs that we create for them.

Jenny Wills – Wedding Dress

Jenny Wills came to us and asked us to create a whimsical wedding dress for her for an unconventional wedding.  She did not want anything stiff or structured.  She was partial to a floaty wedding dress design that meant that she looked stunning but relaxed at the same time.  Jenny tried on one of the wedding dresses in the boutique. She loved the features of that wedding dress design having a strapless sweetheart neckline lace appliqué bodice, a cinched in pleated tulle waist band and a fit, flare and sheer skirt. She was not partial to beading on a wedding dress design so she asked us not to add any crystals or beads to her wedding dress.  She was delighted with the results and looked amazing on her wedding day.  Click here to see pictures of Jenny on her wedding day.

Emma-Jayne Ford Wedding Dress

Emma Ford came to us through a personal recommendation for her unique wedding dress design and we were delighted.  Emma initially entered our Free Bespoke wedding dress design competition.  Unfortunately, she did not win but she was still delighted for us to design her wedding dress.  Emma tried on a full skirt, strapless sweetheart neckline satin dress in our bridal studio and decided immediately that she wanted her wedding dress design to be similar.  Emma’s wedding dress had a lace cap sleeve and a sweetheart neckline ruched tulle bodice.  Her full layered tulle skirt was covered in delicately beaded lace appliqué and she had a beautiful lace up back.  She looked amazing and was absolutely over the moon with her dress. Click here to see pictures of Emma on her wedding day.

 

Estilo Moda Customer Reviews and Testimonials
Jennifer Langford

Jennifer came to us two years ago and asked us to create the most amazing 50s style tulle and lace wedding dress.  Her wedding dress has the most gorgeous pearl and glass beads applied over the lace and the skirt is a full multi-layered tulle.  Her gorgeous wedding dress has a three quarter sleeve and a bateau neckline and the most amazing heart shape keyhole in the back of the bodice.  The best part of Jennifer’s 50s style wedding dress is that it has a lovely soft tulle gathered underneath the skirt that just peeks out only on close scrutiny.  The most quirky wedding dress for the most quirky and lovely bride.

Estilo Moda Bridal Reviews

We designed a beautiful Ivory Vintage lace wedding dress for Louise that had an Illusion bateau neckline and a deep plunging V back.  The lace itself was arranged over the bodice to cleverly cover the bosoms.  The effect was breathtaking and Louise looked absolutely amazing. Her skirt was a full flare silk feel chiffon with a chapel length train.

Estilo ModaBridal Testimonials
Fernanda Orlando Wedding Dress

We designed a lace and tulle, stunning V neck cap sleeve, fit and flare wedding dress for Fernanda who had a beautiful wedding in Brazil in September 2014.  She looked amazing and said she felt it as well. Her dress was pure white and covered in the most delicate of sparkles created and beaded with glass beads, tiny diamanté and iridescent sequins as well as the tiniest of white pearls.
