Redesigned Grandma’s Custom Dress at Back To The Future Wedding
Their wedding began on October 21st, 2015 at 4:29pm, which is exactly the time Marty McFly goes out to the future with Doc! Just like how they incorporated three time periods of Back To The Future movies such as 50’s, 80’s and 2000’s, Bride Anastasia’s wedding dress was “Back To The Future” itself in a way.
She brought her grandmother’s beautiful custom made wedding dress from London. Its style, design, and color (off-white) really bring us back to when her grandmother married in this gown. It is very vintage, and antique piece. It is our pleasure to work on such a historical item. This dress is custom made item since at that time mass manufacturing was not there but only “bespoke” existed. It really requires a “gut” to work on this marvelous dress since we did not want to change too much to keep its originality intact.
Our bespoke designer Lana Gerimovich took away the long sleeves made with off-white taffeta, and replaced with vintage lace, which she also used to cover the top part of the dress with. However, the bodice, skirt, and cuff were kept as original! To accentuate this empire waist style of the dress, Lana added 3D floral trim around the waistline. Bottom of the cathedral train was trimmed with another vintage lace to match floral theme of re-designing. Lana also had a bustle beautifully done for the bride to walk in the aisle elegantly.
Not only the bride’s gown, but also Lana did make custom clothing for the teddy bear from bride’s father using his salvaged fabrics that the bride brought. This wedding was filled with so much family memory to keep the tradition, and history.
