Well every since I stubbled upon it's over the top fabulousness, I had been brainstorming on how I could wear it. Lo and behold a most stunning way to don the bigger than life accouturement.... add it to my wedding gown!!!
Isn't THAT fab???! The gals at BridePower are so clever!! They took an already fab gown and added two burgundy OVERSIZED peonies in a slight diagonal orientation to the back of the gown. This "couture" touch just SINGS on this Vera Wang gown! They had a similar look with another Vera Wang but styled with gorgeous rhinestone encrusted belt.
Many a bride, present company included, often want to customize their wedding gowns to be even more special. When I ordered my gown, I asked if we could do away with one element and introduce another, more fab one.. a more "me" one. And while anything is possible, it's gonna cost you...heavily.
I wanted to add a crystal encrusted applique to my gown and that sucker is a whopping $700.00!!!!! What in the over-priced hell?!?!?! Needless to say, I was NOT a happy camper but in my "look-at-me-I'm-in-my-wedding-gown" high, I acquised.
So back to the flower... while I may not be able to use this fantastic idea for my wedding gown, it would be a super fantastic option for any bride that needs a little something extra for her gown. Be it to add a little color in a refreshingly different way or using a white or cream version of the oversized flowers, for something more classic but insanely glamourous. I *HEART* this idea so much! Oh yeah and the bestest part, it's a fraction of the crazy prices for gown customization. Gotta love that!
*EDIT - I really need to stop posting on 2 hours of sleep - April from BridePower sent me an email letting me know that that Vera gown came with the flowers. Oooooh! But even still, I love the idea and now we know we can borrow from the idea with our own DIY.*
