Naturally, we can't help but notice when someone does bridal a little different. This morning, it's a two-piece wedding ensemble that has caught our attention. Danielle Benton, blogger of When Words Fail recently got married and wore a beautiful custom outfit by Sydney designer and dressmaker, Anna Maurer.
Maurer posted on Instagram saying the brief was "a little different to the norm" as Benton suggested Valentino-inspired sleeves, a play on textures, unique design features, and whimsical stars. Steering clear from the traditional style of gowns, Benton opted for a midriff-baring bodice and skirt. "The back is cut out in a diamond shape and edged in tiny star sequins and Swarovski crystals. The elbow-length puff sleeves and square neckline are edged in pleated tulle ruffles,” Mauer says. As for the skirt, it was intricate detailing and hard work that went into making this. "The skirt is made of metres of tulle that we had sunray pleated and tiny little knife pleats with a godet of star embroidered tulle forming the train." Maurer explains.
We're predicting more brides will opt for a unique take on dressing for their wedding, just as Benton has with her custom ensemble. It might seem like hard work initially, but the trick lies in finding the right (perfect) dressmaker. After all, isn't it every girl's dream to have a perfect white wedding?
