Oh Happy Day

Can not get enough of this lovely wedding.  Of course I am reeling because this wedding took place in Charleston and was photographed by very talented friends!  Here is just a taste of the look and feel of this event…more to come!  Katie’s entire look…LOVELY!

Custom Build Up

Have you ever wondered why so many gowns are sampled strapless?  Perhaps this will help explain!  When you come across a gorgeous gown that has a key hole back, lace or fabric high at the back of the neck, a unique neckline, substantial straps, cap sleeves or full length sleeves, often the gown has been custom made specifically for the bride, often called a “build up.”  The gown most likely started as a strapless style.  Gowns that are non-strapless samples tend to damage easily for trying on, they often only fit a small percentage of brides correctly…therefore, maybe this is why there are so many strapless options!  Don’t fret, Modern Trousseau is happy to custom design a neckline of your choice and we do this often!  Here is an example of our Mimi gown build up with sleeves.  Stunning…right?
