Custom Designed Hand-Made Wedding Dress
This amazing bride, Angela, came to us with one need.... something truly unique. She was getting married in a San Antonio in a beautiful Spanish feeling hotel. She wanted a dress to compliment that theme and make her look stunning at the same time. We worked with Angela in designing the dress, picking out the rich and elegant gold charmuese fabric overlayed with the metallic embroidered lace. Our designer incorporated such details as the off-the shoulder boat neckline, the double edge lace hem and the ombre mocha satin sash to help this dress shine in every way. The dress was completely made by hand... countless hours went into the lace placement and the bead work.

Built-up Neckline and Sleeves Created
Karen was one of Absolute Bridal's lucky Bridal Expo Winners- which means she won a dress for free!! Karen came in and selected a beautiful Allure strapless ballgown from our selection. However, the gown was missing something for Karen. She worked with our in-house designer and seamstress team to build up this amazing neckline and had full lace sleeves added. Our team was able to order in lace that matched the lace on the hem and train of this gown identically. This lace was worked by hand to create this modest and stunning design that made Karen's dress all her own!

Alterations for the Perfect Fit
This sweet bride brought us a gown she had purchased on-line. The design was all she ever wanted, but the fit was in need of some love. She worked with our seamstress team to get the best fit imaginable. The gown itself needed some side seam work, hemming work, a bustle to show of her curves. The bolero had to be completely reworked and attached to the gown to lay properly at her neckline. The alterations love given to this dress made the quality of this gown far above it's original look making this brides shine!

Custom Designed and Hand Made Quince Dress
Gabrielle came to us Absolute Bridal wanting a gown larger then life, literally. She was inspired by the gypsy wedding gowns featured on the television shows.... She worked with our designer to make this dream come true. Gabrielle's dress required three large petticoats and was bigger wide then she was tall fulfilling her dreams of being a gypsy princess on her sweet sixteen. Towards the end of the process, Gabrielle desired to have her geeky chic side honored on her special day; so our in-house designer designed and created her a matching bolero/cape with the superman logo in matching gold fabric customized to Gabrielle's initials. This maintained the beauty of the gown while allowing Gabrielle's personality to shine through!
