I asked Celine if she would’t mind me ending end her week of guest blogging on Once Wed
with a spotlight on her wedding gown because I was just so impressed by this project. Celine fell in love with a Vera Wang couture gown, but knew it
wouldn’t fit into her budget so she decided to take matters into her own hands and create her own. Yes, Celine and her good friend, Yukiko,
custom made her stunning wedding dress(including the floral details
below) all by hand. I think custom is such a great way to go if you are working with a smaller budget or looking for ways to cut costs…especially if you have a talented friend when it comes to a sewing machine. If you
are interested in seeing more details, you have to check out the
website they put together breaking down the steps of the whole journey behind creating both the bride and bridesmaid gowns.
