CUSTOM ORDER-SANDRA

Real bride Sandra contacted me early in the year for a custom gown she was dreaming up. She had lots of ideas, and I added a couple of my own details as well, to create this one-of-a-kind beautiful gown.

Look at that lace collar! We created a higher neck on the overlay for a princess/royal look. I think it made her even more like Princess Kate Middleton! Don't you agree?

I really love this lace we used, it is a French Chantilly. It has a dot print throughout that really makes it young, also it was super soft! The sleeves are connected to one of her fingers on each hand for a fairytale detail. Love her flower in her hair, and her blue earrings to match her new hubby! 

"It was also very comfortable and easy to move in, which was important to me for dancing purposes."

Finished the back with over 50 buttons, a small corset at her waist, ruched bum, and a waterfall of extra silk chiffon at center back for a 'faux train' 

 

Sandra's Review:

"Desiree did an amazing job crafting a custom gown for me that was very reasonably within my budget. She took the time to listen and really make sure that she understood all of the details that I was asking for, then pulled them all off without a hitch. I loved my gown, it fit perfectly, and I got lots of compliments from our guests on how beautiful and intricate it was. It was also very comfortable and easy to move in, which was important to me for dancing purposes. I would highly recommend Desiree Marie Designs for a wedding or any custom piece - you will not be disappointed!"

CUSTOM ORDER-CHELSEA

So happy Chelsea contacted me before leaving Florida last year. We met and designed her dream dress. She is such a happy person, and very in love. I wanted that to reflect in her dress, and I think we did just that! 

Since her wedding was to be on the beach, lace sandals were a must! 

I also created her garter and her bridesmaids garters too. 

Fittings with Chelsea below.

The Big Day.

Silk chiffon, 50+ buttons, and endless amount of hand appliques came together beautifully as Chelsea Steinbauer floated elegantly down the aisle. She wore a light chantilly lace gown with a 6 pence sewn into the dress hem. We created a new design in which a section of the dress was able to flow in the coastal breeze for the ceremony, but was pinned and draped beautifully for an almost 2nd look at their reception. 

Congrats Chelsea and Joe Steinbauer!

New Custom Order Pictures and Big Fake Wedding

Very happy to hear our event, Big Fake Wedding-Austin is now sold out. See all of you there that have already purchased tickets for our 10/22 show. 

I've been creating two dresses for the event, one for bride, Taylor, to wear for the Ceremony, and another dress for the Reception.

All the vendors for the event were given the same inspiration, so that we create a cohesive wedding. I made sure my designs were modern, and simple. Less is more, west coast foliage were a couple phrases we were given to go by. 

I received a picture from our lovely bride Taylor, and designed around her. I wanted to keep her comfortable, and supported all day, but also giving her an unique dress to wear. 

I'll post more pictures on my instagram, follow me at instagram.com/desireemariedesign

I've also been working on some custom orders since reaching my new city of Austin this month.
