Nina can offer style and fit recommendations based on your taste and your preferred silhouette. She believes that perfect fit relies on supportive undergarments . . . and then letting her take care of all the rest: armholes with no gap, sleeve length just past the wrist bone, bra cups for support, decorative straps added for security, a waist that is cinched, a lace or beaded bodice taken down a size but with its beauty undisturbed, transforming a plain long dress into a flirty short dress, adding covered buttons . . . and so forth:
Is your dress strapless or off-the-shoulder? Nina ensures that the neckline stays in place, from the moment you zip it up to the last dance.
Want to show off your shoes? Your hem will be just below the anklebone at the direct front.
Prefer to look as if you are floating on air as you walk? Your hem will clear the floor by a scant inch and taper to the sides.
Does your dress have a train and need bustling? Bustling points are arranged so that the dress bustled still has beautiful lines.
Wishing for a complementary coverup, such as cape, bolero or shawl? Nina can design and construct it for you.
By coming to the Willow Bridal Studio you can save hours of searching on-line and actually try on all those possibilities you've been admiring in pictures but just can't be sure they work for you.
Bring your dress (or a picture) and have a fun time working with Nina on a custom design that expresses your personal style. Whether you see that style as modern, vintage, bohemian, retro-glam, or classic, here you will find an incredible selection (far greater that available in most bridal salons.)
Nina has worked with brides to incorporate vintage family heirloom pieces - trim, lace, beading, jewelry - to accessorize their dress, veil, or headpiece. If your dream is to bring a meaningful family memory into your ceremony, Nina can work with you to incorporate a vintage detail and turn that dream into a lovely reality.
