Emily's Wedding

When Emily asked me to make her bridesmaids dresses for her Aug 2016 wedding I was very happy. Not only had I been lucky enough to make Emily's bridesmaids dress when she was a bridesmaid for her sister but also when she was a bridesmaid for her best friend. Now it was Emily's turn to pick colours and fabrics to create her perfect dresses.

Emily's Wedding dress was a two piece Sassi Halford gown and so Emily wanted to create something that complimented her tulle skirt and lace bodice. I created Tulle skirts in Dusky Rose with a silky camisole and separate, delicate lace top. The soft Dusky Rose colour worked beautifully with Emily's dress.

It's always a pleasure to be asked to make bridesmaids dresses for a brides special day but it's even more special when you are asked to make dresses for family and friends weddings. x

Jacalyn's Wedding

I felt very touched when Jacalyn asked me to make her bridesmaids dresses as I had already been lucky enough to make Jacalyn a bridesmaids dress for her friends wedding last year.

Jacalyn is a florist and so wanted to bring in elements of natural, organic forms to the dresses. We came up with a beautiful design in teal that used a stunning bespoke sequinned embroidery. This was stitched on the back of the dress for a real wow factor when walking down the aisle!

Jacalyn married in June and had a Marquee reception, unsurprisingly adorned with stunning flowers!

Hannah's Wedding

Today I would like to share some images with you from Hannah's wedding which was back in July.

Hannah came to me inspired by the idea of having her bridesmaids in a mint shade and so I made three beautiful Mint dresses with a gorgeous Ivory lace top that could easily be worn again. They had a bohemian feel to them which would match her laid back, pretty wedding. 

I think they look pretty stunning with the gorgeous bouquets made by her sister!

Summer so far....

It's been a busy summer here at abideMaids, so I thought it was time I shared a few images with you from recent weddings. Most of these snaps are ones I have taken before the dresses leave the shop. Once I receive professional photos I will pop them on here too (They will be far better!)
