Real Bride – Kim

JIP Nguyen Wedding 523

Kim was the sweetest of brides! She was looking to find a wedding dress that best complemented her petite structure. In addition, she wanted something classic and edgy that represented her individuality while respecting her Asian cultural heritage. She was particularly interested in our wrapped details, raw edges, and an interesting skirt that didn’t fight with the detailed top. We played around with several top and skirt ideas and came up with a design that captured everything she wished for. I was so thrilled to see her radiate happiness when she tried on her dress for the first time.

Kim’s custom wedding gown has a variation of our Chiyu top paired with our Kaiya skirt.

Kim is now a very happily married young lady and we wish her more blessed sweet moments, as she deserves it all!

Managing Suggestions from Friends and Family

Shit People Suggest

Feeling overwhelmed with all the wedding suggestions from friends and family? Here’s a great idea for getting it under control without offending anyone.

And just like that, I felt I could handle any recommendation anyone threw at me. Having a place to store all the ideas made me feel like I could respond in a positive way, without committing to anything, and keep the outpouring of excitement in perspective.

Here’s a beautiful story about the wedding of one of our beautiful brides. Check out the Jenga Set idea for notes from guests. Brilliant!

We also got a lovely mention in the article:

Darci wore a sleeveless ivory floor-length, lace sheath dress with an empire waist, deep front v-neck and open back with a puddle train by Angelo Lambrou. We love the simple yet stunning silhouette of this dress that fit Darci perfectly. It’s a perfect out-door wedding dress that complements the scenery but has its own character with its small details of lace.

Congratulations, Darci and Benjamin!
