Parukeri Estetike Merita Wedding Dresses
We love wedding dresses that are feminine with an edge, chic, and stylish with enchanting details.  The kind of dresses that capture a romantic and eclectic aesthetic, and just scream “magic” to us. Their gorgeous designs balance the sensibilities of an inner ingénue and a sophisticate bride.

Stunning Wedding Dresses with Breathtaking Patterns
Quality and details are often the keys that determine the beauty of a wedding dress. The patterns used on a gown, either presented through the choice of fabric, lace, or artistic embroidery, evoke romance and refined times, and add that special finishing touch to a wedding day look.

Well, the beginning stages of the new design are going well! I really need to paint this sketch and post it properly. But I am SO EXCITED to work with these fabrics! Such beautiful silks! Oh my gosh, but this gown is gonna be amazing, if I do say so myself.
