I’ve been dying to share Tanika & Mike’s wedding, it was a stunning Autumn wedding set on a rural property just outside of Perth. Tanika’s bridal party wore black and boy, oh boy, did they look good! It worked perfectly in contrast with her classic crepe wedding dress. Tanika keep the accessories minimal, with statement earrings for herself and bold sunflowers for the bouquets. Whilst her styling was classic and minimal, those little pops of colour were fun and something a little bit different!
When we met with Tanika, she had a very good idea of what she wanted, we guided her to create a classic crepe wedding dress that suited her petite frame perfectly. I’ll let Tanika’s testimonial give you an insight into the journey of her dress. I love her honesty about the process, for so many brides, having a dress made in unchartered territory and can be anxiety inducing. We were there every step of the way and I think these beautiful photos show a job well done.
Choosing a wedding dress was probably the least exciting part of the wedding for me. Even though I knew exactly what I wanted, the thought of getting a dress still caused me a lot of stress. I chose to get a wedding dress made because I just couldn’t find what I wanted out there everything was lace and beads and dresses with a lot of detail and I just knew that wasn’t what I was after. After only going to two places and meeting the beautiful Sandra and Birgitta, I knew they were the ladies for the job.
Even with these two ladies, the dress up until the final fitting was extremely nerve racking for me. In saying this, I could not have asked for more in the ladies at Elvi Design. They scheduled extra appointments for me, answered all of my emails – and I emailed A LOT, and went over and beyond to help guide me towards my dream dress. They were always supportive, open, and explained in detail what would and wouldn’t work. Even though I was nervous (and sweating profusely) at each visit, the ladies kept me calm and made me feel so comfortable knowing that they were in charge of designing what I wanted. I can’t thank them enough for what they produced, and how they made me feel when I wore it.
Any advice to anyone getting a dress made by Elvi Design is 100% trust the process (and S&B) and realise that these two ladies have your best interests at heart. What they created for me was more beautiful than I could have ever pictured, and I would choose them over and over again. I have never felt more beautiful than I did in my wedding dress and it’s only a shame I will only get to wear it once! – Tanika, April 2018
