The Wedding Dress- Going Custom

posted by on 2012.07.31, under Wedding

First off, I think wedding planing has officially taken a toll on me…I just realized how exhausted & tired I looked in this video! It’s a little over 2 weeks before the wedding, and I think it’s time to lay off on the caffeine & get some good solid rest!!

 ANYWAYS in this episode I FINALLY start searching for my wedding dress!!!! My bridesmaid Sara & I went to go visit a bridal boutique in Studio City called R-mine Bridal.

R-mine is known for their collection of classic yet cutting edge gowns that they customize indiidually for their clients…making a gown truly one of a kind!¬†All of R-Mine gowns are handmade in the boutique using the highest quality of silk fabrics, laces and beadings.

We decided to divide the wedding dress episode into 3 parts because theres so much that goes into finding your dream dress! Heres a little peek in some of the dresses that I tried on….. Stay tuned for the tomorrow’s episode where I actually try on these GORGEOUS dresses!!!!



I’m extremely pleased to find this web site. I need to to thank you for your time for this fantastic read!! I definitely really liked every bit of it and i also have you bookmarked to see new things on your web site.

You gotta get some rest. Even the most beautiful wedding dress in the world will not work if the bride is looking tired and worn out.

love shopping for wedding dresses…it’s an amazing experience…I imagine that you had an amazing time…can’t wait to see the actual dress…

I love chiffon. I want my future wedding dress to be sweetheart, chiffon, flowy, and simple beading. By the way, I love the boutique’s decor and paint. The blue really draws your eyes to the dresses and that pop of red just gives it, well, that pop lol. Goodluck.

Hi Chriselle! Thank you for those great videos!! I love waching them. And I’m pretty sure that I know exactly what you want becouse, I’m getting married the next year, and I’m a bit frustrated looking for “THE DRESS” I know it’s a bit far away….(Paris) but, just for inspiration… have a look at this website: I found her, becouse I was looking for something diferent, really special and also soft and confortable…with a lot of movement. The dresses looks amazing! Hope you like it! And GOOD LUCK with everything!

hi Chriselle!
Just a quick note, I hope you took a look at the yelp ratings for this place! Not to stress you out even further, but reading the reviews is slightly disheartening. There are many people who are dissatisfied with their dresses final outcome and stated the service here can be pretty nightmare-ish. Anyways, here is the link: . Either which way, good luck with hunting for your dress!

Kat L ( July 31, 2012 at 3:44 PM )

I can’t wait to see the final outcome of her dress!! Not to mention I’m loving this series so much that I can’t wait to get married haha! Education comes first of course but it doesn’t hurt to dream. ;D <3
