You know, a bridal store is only as good as the seamstresses that help make their wedding dresses fit *just so*. In our Los Angeles area bridal store we’re blessed to have Lara, who really is the Queen of Custom Sleeves. Time and time again we’ve seen her work her magic for our curvy and plus size brides to get them the coverage or style they want for their big day, and this custom gown was no exception. Check out Evelyn’s stunning wedding dress with sleeves.
So pretty!! Evelyn came to Strut in October of 2016, about nine months before her July 20th, 2017 nuptials to Enrique. She was looking for a mermaid and love lace, beading and sparkle. She wrote that she wanted some classy, fun and modern. She worked with Tamiko, who found her the perfect mix of everything she wanted!
Evelyn’s wedding dress was super fitted with a soft, embroidered lace on the long bodice. The skirt featured layers of soft organza ruffles for that “fun” touch. She added a beaded belt, cathedral veil and blingy headband. Evelyn’s stunning wedding dress with sleeves was made possible by magic… and planning! She ordered extra fabric and lace appliques when she purchased her wedding dress so it would match perfectly. We always recommend our brides buy matching fabric, if they want customization, when they purchase their bridal gowns, so we have plenty of time for customization and delivery.
Evelyn wrote, “We had our wedding on July 20, 2017. It was in a small ranch town San Jose de Mesillas in Zacatecas Mexico, which is where my parents and groom are from. Loved my dress so much! Thanks to all the staff at Strut Bridal in LB! So helpful and you made me feel so beautiful while trying on dresses! I previously went to one bridal shop and left completely devastated because they didn’t carry certain dresses in my size or they just weren’t what i wanted. And when i walked into Strut i fell in love with all the dresses! But i knew this was the one right when i tried it on! Also shoutout to your amazing alterations specialist Lara! Loved her work on my sleeves!! Amazing and very attentive.”
Ugggghhhhh so pretty it hurts to look at these amazing wedding photos from Gabriel Torrecillas Photography! Best wishes to the happy couple. We’re so thrilled she found a wedding gown she loved and had a great experience!
