Katie fell for this fifties dress with lace bodice and pleated tulle skirt. But she needed us to add lots of sparkle and lots of pink. We set about making the bodice strapless, then making some sheer straps out of the lace, and setting crystals into it. We added a very full petticoat, a long pink sash, a pink birdcage veil and we even attached tiny pink bows to a pair of Rachel Simpson's Evas. And just as a finishing touch... a bit more sparkle from a vintage necklace Katie found in our shop.
"Hello lovely ladies, I really wanted to say thank you so much for all you did for me with my dress. It was so much fun coming along to the fittings and adding extra petti's and sparkles every time :) You were both so kind and supportive and really made me enjoy the whole experience as it was something I wasn't feeling very confident about. I don't think I could have had a dress which was more "me". Rich loved it and I really felt like a princess all day. Its been a bit of a bump coming down to earth after the wedding and I have missed it more than I thought I would. I think that I am missing not spending time with lovely people like you the most. Lots of love Katie xxx"
