Rocking her black couture wedding dress by talented designers Croce & Colisimo, bride Ebony shares why she chose not to wear white.
From the bride: "The process of choosing my wedding dress was similar to choosing my black diamond engagement ring. Whilst I loved the beautiful designs and pretty laces gowns in the bridal stores, but I just couldn’t picture myself in a white dress. When asked I mentioned a black couture gown but I still want to look like a bride, many suggested I need to find a designer to make me one. Nearing the end of our ladies dress day I felt bad at the thought of not finding anything but my sisters suggested one more store.
As soon as I walked in Croce & Colosimo there it was! I saw a black couture gown with the most exquisite detail and a layered train to die for! The bodice was made from Christian Dior lace and silk. It was everything and more that I’d imagined myself in and still made me feel like a bride.
It is the first dress I tried on and the only one I wanted. I spoke with the designers and used that gown as a guide, then they further designed the one for me.
There is a great feature to chat with the person before purchasing. I really like the notes about scams and paying with PayPal, and felt very confident with the purchase. To improve, I would like to see a better filter for the names of dresses. I was looking for a specific dress from a specific brand, and it was easy to search by brand, but not by the name of the dress. I also would like to see more filters for size, with the measurements of the dress instead of just the size. Also, height is very important for dresses and it is impossible to tell the height from the description currently.
