My Custom Wedding Gown

I don’t know about y’all, but my feed has been flooded with all kinds of beautiful engagements recently. So, I’m feeling inspired to write about something wedding related of course (My one year anniversary is coming up!).  Any excuse to reminisce on my big day! 🙂

Since I purchased my gown locally, I thought that it may be beneficial for all of those local brides out there to read! My gown came from Lana Addison (an adorable little bridal boutique) in Downtown Cary, and was originally in two pieces!  I picked out the top and the bottom separately to create my gown, which ended up being the best way for me to customize.  I was able to add a silk ribbon to the waist and delicate straps to the lace top.  I loved the mixture of textures between my top and bottom (Originally, I thought that I wanted a completely lace gown.) My top and bottom were both Martina Liana, and I’ll link both below!

Lana Addison was actually the very first place that I went when I began trying on gowns. I visited 4 other places after, and ended up right back where I started, because nothing could beat the combo that I tried on there.  I really couldn’t have asked for a more perfect gown! Good luck to those newly engaged brides out there hunting for their gowns. I hope that sharing my experience with you helped!

Thanks for reading,

Olivia
