Published 8 months ago

But whatever choice a bride makes, it’s still their day and as the following images show, it’s definitely possible to leave a stunning impression even if your choices deviate from the usual accepted norm.

If you are thinking of getting a non-white dress trust me you won’t regret it! I was anxious at first but once I had the dress I selected the color palette to work around it and it all fell into place so well!

The dress is from Teuta Matoshi, I did the custom sizing and it was a perfect fit, the only alteration needed was the length (too long). They even did some customization to the dress for no extra cost, like adding a modesty panel to the corseted back and making my husband a pocket square that we didn’t end up using. Would definitely recommend buying from them.

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
