A new Ask Emmaline question is here! Bride-to-be, Ashleigh, asks us about finding a custom lace top for her wedding dress. She loves the look of bridal separates but can’t find a top she likes. She writes,
“Hi Emmaline! I want to do a two-piece wedding dress with a tulle skirt on the bottom and a lace crop top. Do you have any suggestions where to find the lace top? I can’t find one at local bridal shops or whatever I find online hasn’t seemed fancy enough. Thanks!”
Hi Ashleigh, thanks for writing! If they had wedding separates when I planned my wedding, I would have loved the idea of a two-piece top and skirt set; for the reception, you can even switch up your look with the same top and pair with a shorter skirt. I like the idea of changing it up for the reception, as we mentioned with these short wedding dresses.
Anyways, back to your question: where to find a custom bridal dress top. We did a little digging and found a gorgeous one at Bridal By Anatomy. They do completely 100% handmade work — as in, yes, totally gorgeous, one-of-a-kind, and made just for you! — and they’ll work with you on a custom look that suits your individual style and preference. And these definitely look fancy enough for your wedding!
Here’s an example of a lace top they made for a bride, one that sounds like something you’re dreaming of (paired with that tulle skirt = amazing!)
