Akira - My Wedding Dress (Part Deux)


It's been a while since I promised a lovely reader that I'd post more shots of my wedding dress. I posted a few pictures in one of my first posts: Akira - My Wedding Dress, so here they are:

I cannot believe how relaxed I was on the day...


This was moments before I walked down the aisle...

Even on my wedding day I felt awkward in front of the camera...I'm just not photogenic, hope my dress is!


Trying hard not to laugh, as I'm feeling cheesy.

It is by absolute chance that my sisters' bridesmaids dresses matched the bottom of my dress. I had bought the BM dresses almost a year before I found this dress (2 months before my wedding, replacing the Monique L'Huillier dress I had first bought as my wedding dress). Serendipity...

Shoe shot! My wedding shoes were Yves Saint Laurent Dada Semi-Wedges in Platino. My sisters' bridesmaid shoes were Franco Burrone, with removable Swarovski clips.

  1. That dress is truly stunning--a work of art! I hope one day (if I marry) I look as lovely on my day--you aren't awkward at all.

  8. I was a bit embarassed posting my wedding pictures up, so thanks everyone for your lovely comments! I should post a pic of the dress I was going to wear instead of the Akira, as it was such a 180...

  9. the details on your dress ARE TO DIE FOR!
    i am so in love with that dress.

    definitely second the clothes horse's comment in saying that if i ever get married, i hope to look every inch as classy, graceful and beautiful as you do!

    ps. i love that you chose to wear (semi)enclosed shoes. its just that so many brides choose the kinda cliched choice of sparkly open-toed or strappy ivory shoes. those ysls are such interesting shoes and a great fit with the dress.

  14. Thanks for the lovely comments everyone :) Regarding the shoes, it's funny, 'cause originally I did have a pair of Stella McCartney silk satin with Swarovski peep-toe stiletto's reserved as my wedding shoes. When I drastically changed my dress, the shoes also had to be changed. I never would've imagined those YSL shoes as my wedding shoes, but I though with the unusual dress, it'd work, and they only arrived around 1 week before my wedding, haha (talk about cutting it close!)
