As a part of a new Anomalie series, where we feature real brides on our Instagram live stream, Leslie chats with Anomalie bride, Erica, who recently designed her custom wedding dress with us. Erica found the wedding dress shopping experience to be “terrible” and couldn’t believe it when she found out there was a way to get exactly the look she wanted for her special day.

Erica’s Lookbook

After uploading pictures to her Anomalie lookbook she walked through all the details with her stylist during the Design Consultation.

Key Design Elements included:

  • Structured fit and flare gown
  • Off-the-shoulder sleeves
  • Wide-V back neckline
  • Chapel length train, made complete with buttons to the hem of the train
  • Tulle veil with satin trim and a blusher

Wedding Dress Production

Once Erica’s dress design was finalized, she received and approved photos of the pattern-a mock-up of the dress made from a muslin material. Erica saw the dress come to life with the actual silk-cotton faille fabric through updates from our team at the workshop.

The Wedding

Erica and her husband, Keith, had a romantic garden backdrop with their venue at the Belle Isle Conservatory in Detroit, Michigan. Her soft white dress was striking against the green backdrop of palm trees, ferns and vines.RosyandShaunWeddingPhotography319RosyandShaunWeddingPhotography202RosyandShaunWeddingPhotography269RosyandShaunWeddingPhotography387 (1)
