Inspire Forum 2019

I was recently joined with other Austin wedding vendors for the 1st ‘Inspire Forum’ in ATX. Engaged couples were invited to the beautiful wedding venue in Round Rock at the Lone Oak Barn and were able to ask questions, get a taste from caterers and bartenders, and see in person wedding dresses, floral designs and everything else you will need for the perfect ATX wedding.

I chose these two dresses to show at the event because they show variety and that there are endless options when working with a custom made bridal designer.

But they are alike in many ways too. They both are made with silk fabric and for that reason are more delicate, soft, and luxurious than typical polyester gowns. They both also use unique materials from the tye-dye draped piece to the embroidered rose appliques.

50's Style not Values

This dress was solely inspired by these authentic 1950's headpieces from stylist Melania Leocadia with styledbyML and WARLORDme.

I love the lace cutout off-the-shoulder 'sleeves' I created. They are so feminine and remind me of Cinderella's moms dress with the pink velvet bows.

There is also a hi-lo skirt with a 4" horsehair braid that is flirty and fun. It really shows off her vintage kitten heels.

I made this dress with pink sequin fabric from our local Texstyles fabric store. Along with the USA made Silk Chiffon, Silk Charmeuse, and Silk China Lining.

I'm so excited to share these photos. This pink number has been sitting in my closet for months, waiting for the perfect photoshoot to join, and it did just that. I didn't have the opportunity to attend the shoot, but what a tremendous job everyone did. Credit below. 👇

Pretty with pink details. Staci styled her dress magnificently with velvet pink Betsey Johnson heels, dainty gold jewelry, crstyal belt, and a gorgeous crystal headpiece.

I added lace appliques to all the edges of the bodice instead of hemming for a more romantic look. Keeping the back very open and lining free was another way we kept this dress on team sexy.

Custom Order-Promise

Promise first came to me looking for a romantic custom made wedding dress that she couldn't find in stores. I was excited when she mentioned it would be a blush gown. 

We were going to add pink flowers throughout the gown, but decided early on to leave them out. 

She had a clear vision of what she wanted and was great to work with. She came to visit for a fitting as well where she found out she wanted to add a matching veil as well. It really made the whole look come together perfectly.

In order to create the unique style of her dress, I cut out around 100 of these lace pieces and created my own pattern of lace on the bodice that trickled down throughout the dress and veil.

I also created sheer tulle side panels on the bodice for a flattering look.

Love her country vintage style she added to the gown.

You can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl. 

She loved it too, see her feedback below:

"Desiree did an awesome job putting all of my ideas together to make the perfect wedding dress. It was beautiful and totally 100% unique. I got compliments on it all night!!" -Promise Newman

Brand Ambassador Tannie

Tannie was introduced to me years ago by a mutual friend of ours at one of my fashion shows. I immediately fell in love with her look and continued to work with her on shoots. We had such a similar style, she even purchased a couple custom pieces from me. 

Tannie represents the Desireé Marie girl because she's confident, an entrepreneur, and absolutely gorgeous inside and out. 

You can find all the dresses she is styling in the shop section
