“The Knot” Showcases Our Romantic Low Back Wedding Gowns:

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Hello lovely brides, fellow vendors and readers!

I thought I would share some of our recent publicity from The Knot!

You can click through to see the original article here: http://theknot.ninemsn.com.au/community/blogs/wedding-obsessions/sarah-alice-andrews-couture

It’s always interesting to see what comparisons other people draw between my bridal gowns and other influences. I like that they referenced the Indian Sari look as I do love those textiles and I would LOVE to plan a trip to India one day..

And we were also featured on this “Portrait Back Wedding Dress Gallery” below:

Romantic & Elegant Church Appropriate Bridal Gowns

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

Hello everyone!

With the trends towards sleeves and illusion necklines coming through in a big way for wedding gowns at the moment, there is more opportunity for brides who want or need a Chapel ready (Church appropriate) wedding gown that covers the arms, shoulders and decolletage (think Kate Middleton’s gown).

Exploring this trend, while knowing that most brides still wanting to feel alluring and beautiful, I created some sketches and here is one of them:

 

This gown is all about the amazing French lace which is cleverly cut and stitched on to tulle around the neck and shoulders. It also accentuates the back with pleats creating a bustle effect which is very elegant.

A gown like this would also look super cute with a small ruffle right down the centre back all the way to the skirt train. (Can’t imagine this? I’ll have to draw it for you sometime..)

If you are looking for a Chapel ready gown you will find they are extremely hard to find. A lot of brides end up buying a strapless dress and having it altered to have the appropriate coverage, but it just won’t have the same effect as a bridal gown that was designed to have sleeves.

So talk to me about having a wedding gown created especially for you!

I am still taking bookings for as early as February 2013 weddings but not for long! So contact me asap if you want a couture dress made just for you for an early 2013 wedding!
