Draped, Chiffon Goddess Gown for Rachel

I haven’t talked much about my custom brides this year – definitely NOT because I’m not completely in love with them and their amazing dresses, but because I’m no longer a one-woman-show. And while that makes me infinitely better adjusted, with room to fill my days with other things that make me crazy and busy, it means it’s no longer just me and a dress until the wee-hours. And so when I do get my hands on the dresses, and they’re being fitted onto their adorable owners, I get all wrapped up in the moment and forget to document. Well, I remembered earlier this week, and ohmigod. But first, a peek at the sketch I did for this gorgeous bride, Rachel …

Rachel is getting married outside at a rustic, indie location and when we first met, and I heard about the wedding, all I could picture was this tall, elegant woman gliding around in the sunshine, draped in chiffon and loose florals. Woodland GODDESS. And when she said she was going to go bold with color, I could have kissed her on the mouth.

Yes. A million times yes.

And what color do you think she chose?

Hint: I couldn’t help myself, and posted this in color on Instagram. Aren’t you dying to see it in all of its glory? And don’t you want to hug that little girl in the mirror??

I can’t wait to show you this stunner when all of the draping is in place. Total, TOTAL show stopper.

Fall/Winter 2014 Collection is HERE!

My apologies for not having a chance to post that super cool thing I was supposed to share last week. I didn’t have the opportunity to get in here, because I was working on getting something else together – namely … this:

Veronica-Sheaffer-Fall-2014-bridal-collection

It’s LIVE. And ohmigod, I am NERVOUS this time around. I mean, I’m always very nervous when I release a collection, to be honest, but I’m living through this one right now, so it feels like the MOST nervous I’ve ever been, even though I know that’s completely not true. Uuuugggh. I’m giving myself high blood pressure and everything.

Just kidding, you guys, obviously I’m just sitting here with a glass of champagne, taking selfies and laughing at the world.

Anyway …

Please take a moment to check out the full Fall 2014 collection – it’s got tons of lace and silk and a shimmer of gold – and don’t miss my new “Little Blue Bow” collection, which is … ALL CUSTOM. Exciting, right??

I’ll be back soon to give you lots of details about both collections, but right now I have to go calm myself the eff down.

P.S. I love you guys. A LOT. It feels good to know I can come here and give you high fives and forget about my responsibilities and potential failures.

Hahaha.

Really.

xoxo
