Genevieve Wedding Gown {Ruffled Skirt & Statement Necklace}

Inspiration & Sketch for the GENEVIEVE Wedding Gown & Statement Necklace

{Genevieve Wedding Gown & Statement Necklace – Sketch}

The next upcoming DIY Wedding Project will be the Genevieve Wedding Gown & Statement Necklace.  I was inspired by one of my favorite designers, Monique Lhuillier, and her “Waltz” gown.  I love the simple yet dramatic combination of the soft feminine feel of the Waltz.  It has a simple strapless bodice and the full romantic ruffle skirt.  Just Beautiful!  BHLDN also has a lovely collection of separates which gave me the idea of a 2 piece wedding gown.  This allows for the pieces to be worn again with different looks.  And of course, I have to finish off the gown with a dramatic necklace inspired by Vera Wang‘s bib necklace, the Crystal Rosette.

I can not wait to see all these beautiful inspirations come together into one gown, the Genevieve.  Stay tuned for the reveal…coming November 30, 2011.

Also, special thanks to our skirt sponsor Julie at www.rufflefabric.com.  The premade ruffle fabric will make life a whole lot easier for all the DIY Brides:)
