Featherlight slip gown

I think a bride should indulge and be true to her personal style by choosing a wedding dress that makes her feel absolute most like “her.” So I did! After walking down the aisle in the fitted silver gown (refer to my previous post), I took a load off by changing into this significantly lighter chiffon dress. 46696968_467084173816149_9158966524055126016_n.jpg

Simplicity is key and yet I wish to make a bold statement for my second and last look of the day.

Without any second doubt, this is my absolute favorite out of all the gowns. As you can tell from the photos, the dress is relax and comfortable to wear in. I love how it drape and flow gracefully on my body while I move around in it, but knowing that the dress is reconstructed from an used gown is the icing on the cake.

Yes, i reconstruct this dress from one of my gown previously I wore for my pre-wedding photoshoot!

This dress had so much memory stitched into it as it is the first wedding gown I put on for photo-shooting, and after 9 months, I wear it to end the chapter. Over and above, I toss my bouquet and had my first dance in it.

The rest of the night was filled with laughter, singing and dancing. We had so much fun that night!

The celebration of #happiyilemverafter has come to an end. After taking a break, I am ready to move on to new project! Hopefully by the next, it will be ready to share with you all.

Do you love my dress? Tell me below in the comment session. Hope to hear from you 🙂

Star studded

I am addicted to black and I would pick black over and over again. However, for my wedding reception (also my husband’s birthday party), I have to stand out from the black and yellow table setting (restaurant’s theme); reluctantly, I opt for silver…

We set our theme around the black tablecloth and yellow napkin :  Stary night. VSY_067VSY_166VSY_379

I am so in love with the back beading details!!!

My wedding gown

To be honest, I am one of those plain Jane who have no vision of walking down the aisle in my dream wedding gown, until last November, after he pop the question and the image eventually sank in my mind; all i can ever imagine of my wedding gown are “Simple, Modest and Regal”.

It took me about 2 months to work on the gown with plain crêpe I found on the fabric scrap street in Vietnam (weeeee~ upcycle!!!). I top off the look with fascinator hat and birdcage veil.

Guess which part is my favourite? The back details and the fascinator hat.

Some elders criticize my gown is too plain… Owh well~ my day my way.

Never ever imagined it could be so dreamy with tulle veil on… Kudos to my experienced MUA and talented photographer!

This is my best loved among all, full of love and happiness with bright smile on our face and blossoms in the hand.

Regal and Modest. Flawless from every angles even when I bends throughout the ceremony.  I couldn’t ask for more…

Two-piece mermaid gown

I always prefer two piece design because of the versatility to mix and match with other piece to create different look. The flexibility in two-piece design extend the usability of these separate pieces.

I had fun in making the corset and mermaid skirt… The skirt is so stunning with the sequins! Although it is almost impossible to walk properly in this skirt without stepping on the hem… After all, behind every beautiful things, there’s some kind of pain. Don’t you agree?

Here’s me having fun in mix and match the skirt with different elements…

My favorite look is the T-shirt combination! Well, who knows mermaid skirt can be so elegant yet fun and playful?

How about yours? Share me your thoughts below?

The simple wedding dress

When we first stepped into the bridal house, my first and foremost request is “a very simple dress without any embellishments”. Stunned at my request, the consultant brought me a few dresses to try on, but none of them fulfill my requirement and the fit is barely satisfactory (I am not the average Asian girl size)… After pondered this matter for a long time, I decided to turn my vision into reality.

No fussy details, no crazy big volume, all I want for my white gown is nothing but clean and sleek. Do you know what makes it even better? I am using the fabric waste I purchased at Phu Tho Hoa street from my last trip to Vietnam (refer to my previous post).

The gown is simple, sleek and upcycled from textile waste!!! The fabric was dirty and dyed but after washing, it is just as clean as new fabric…

I am really delighted with the photoshoot! In my own opinion, what matters in pre-wedding photoshoot is not how magnificent the gown or background is, but the couple. The shooting is meant to commemorate our youth and a pleasant experience to be shared between the lovebirds which the precious moments will turn into our lifetime memories. Hence, it is very important that the couple feel comfortable and pleasant.
