I believe in creative expression and I wanted something very unique that would capture my artistic side, while still being elegant and tasteful. So I chose House of Clay to design my dress and veil and they nailed it.

I'm not a girly girl so I didn't want anything with a sweetheart neckline, too much frills or any kind of fandangles. At the same time, nothing too plain and boring. So I was in search of a really unique wedding dress that fit my personality and I found it - an off the shoulder beach wedding dress with sleeves which I ordered from inweddingdress.com. The lace sleeves and shoulders gave it a nice vintage look, and the cut of the hemline was just really cute and perfect for me.

The mermaid silhouette with the sweetheart neckline accentuated my curves nicely and enhanced my female form. The floor-length hemline gave the dress a formal look, while the train gave me a majestic appearance. I knew it was the one because it made me feel sexy, and I knew my groom would be wowed!

I wanted a dress that would portray the classic vintage theme of my wedding, and also steer away from the norm of the strapless sweetheart neckline type of satin dresses. So the lace, beads, cap sleeves and the open window in the back were definitely important details for me. In my research online, I found that this particular designer (Essence of Australia) did a lot of classic-vintage looking lace dresses for petite brides. From there on, I searched for stores in the zip code I had planned to do my shopping, and voila! When I arrived at the store, there was my dress in the window display! I tried it on and instantly fell in love, so I had no choice but to say yes to the dress.

Well I chose a Clay dress because Keisha Allen, the designer at House of Clay, pays close attention to details, and I knew I would have got nothing less than the best. I wanted a cut-to-fit dress, and I got more than what I hoped for. My dress was a two-in-one design and I chose that because I wanted a reception dress. I had beading at the top with lots of glam, while the rest of the dress was fitted. The detachable skirt had ruffles with a bow at the back. I loved, and still love my wedding gown. House of Clay did a great job!

I wanted something that was modest, but still a little sexy. My form-fitting mermaid gown from House of Clay was absolutely perfect. The designer threw in the grand idea of pairing it with a lace cropped top. I loved that new and refreshing idea, so I ran with it.
