So the theme for the wedding was GLAM and the colours were yellow and grey/silver. The bride wanted floor length dresses with some kind of peplum going on. (It really wouldn't be an Ojo wedding if there wasn't any peplum action as the bride and her sisters are my only clients who repeatedly opt for the peplum styles for their bespoke pieces in different shapes, sizes and levels of stiffness! lool yes it's their thing!) I was able to source out a pretty shade of buttercream yellow for the dresses and the dreamiest grey sequins for embellishing and the rest of it was inspired by my ultimate style icon - Grace Kelly. The bride also wanted a slight variation in style for her Maid of honour and Chief bridesmaids. As challenging as the task was, it was such a joy and a rewarding moment seeing the girls in their different shapes and sizes looking absolutely stunning in their dresses. Thank God! It also helped that their hair was fabulously pinned up by Jadoy Hair; I love teaming up with my sister! I have to take a moment to gosh about the bride's dress, so beautiful! I am such a fan of the drop-waist shape, I myself opted for that for my outfit. Here's a sneak peek at it:
And now for the dresses:

And that's all for the bridal party. I hope you love it as much as I do. The bride chose a midnight blue sequin fabric for her evening dress. She wanted a sweetheart neckline and left the rest to me plus strict instruction from her sisters to make the tail LONG! Lol...
Surely that's not all I've got for today's post :D What do you wear to a glam wedding?! Here's what I made for myself:
Here's what I made for my sister, the hands behind Jadoy Hair:
My friend Janet decided to wear something I made her way back in 2009 LOL! I had just started learning so I got a bit of help with this from my teacher. It's nice to see that she's kept it till now.
I hope not too long till next post
