47 Days Married - The Dress: Diana - Raimon Bundo

My dress was by Raimon Bundo.  Raimon Bundo is a Spanish designer and their gowns are all hand-made by a team of artisans in Barcelona.  Each year they create 4 different collections.  My dress was part of the Hacia la Luz collection.  They've only been available in the UK since 2012.  It is very clear that a lot of love and pride goes into each design and dress created.  They also allow changes to styles (depending on the change requested) and will custom-make matching jackets or add more boning to dresses if requested. Their wedding gowns are simply gorgeous!!

My Dress was purchased from Forever Bridal in Belfast and altered by Patricia Eastwood. Leondra and Patricia couldn't have been more wonderful with trials, fittings and the collection of my dress.  Leondra was so helpful and not at all pushy when I was trying dresses.  She was very up-to-date on popular looks for the season and had loads of recommendations for where to look for inspiration for my hair and accessories. Patricia came in on Mothers Day to measure a very tired and grey looking post-hen-party Amy, as I was due to fly back to England that afternoon. She was so accommodating and she fitted the dress perfectly to me, which makes such a difference to the over all look. 

I wore the Diana. It was a stunning ivory A-line dress.  It had a sweetheart neckline and gorgeous lace detailing on the bodice with a delicate lace cap sleeve.  The bodice was boned but it was so soft and really comfortable to wear and nipped in at my waist.

It had a zip to make it easy to get into but this was hidden by gorgeous little buttons right down the back. My mum had lots of fun with these on our wedding day!

I felt so elegant as I walked up the aisle with my dad, and the train of the dress flowed so beautifully behind me.

Patricia had altered the dress in such a way that it kicked out as I walked so I didn't have to worry about tripping over it and could gaze up the aisle waiting for Jim to turn round!!

I think Jim liked my dress!
Last year I wrote a blog post on some things I found helpful in the hunt for my wedding dress.  If you are still looking for your wedding dress I highly recommend finding a Raimon Bundo stockist.  They say a Raimon Bundo bride values style, quality and feeling good on her big day and my dress gave me all these things and more!  

This dress was made to skank in!
