These are the maternity lace wedding dress sketches of a custom design wedding dress for a bride who will be in her 3rd trimester on the day of her wedding.
She had tried on wedding dresses at other bridal boutiques and fell in love with a strapless lace wedding dress that was not a maternity wedding dress and was too tight around her belly with the lace up stretched to max. She was told that it could easily be altered to fit her belly and with 7 weeks to her wedding, she almost bought that ivory wedding dress because everywhere else she went prior told her that buying off the rack is her only choice because its too close to her wedding to order a new wedding dress.
Her lovely sister-in-law told her to get advise about alterations before actually purchasing that dress because of the non-refundable policy for purchases of wedding dresses and also since she really wanted a WHITE wedding dress not ivory.
They came to us for advice – showed them why it would be very costly and risky to alter that dress as it would involve ripping off the entire bodice, changing it from natural waist to empire-line as there might not be enough seam allowance on the under-layers to let out and we might not have exact lace to match as we would also have to let out the top with the likelihood of bust growth too. It would cost almost as much as making a custom design maternity wedding dress from scratch.
Checked with our overseas production team and they agreed to take on this 6-weeks super rush order as a favor, so the order was placed on 31 October 2016

With 7 weeks to the wedding, we had to do some guesswork as to how much bigger the little babe is going to grow.
Production team worked tirelessly to ensure the timely completion of this lace maternity wedding dress which initially will not be beaded if we do not have sufficient time to do so. However, as the bride loves beadings, the seamstresses managed to put in the extra hours to bead the laces as soon as the dress was sewn to our specifications.
