Courtney Ivory Guipure Lace — An Elegant, Vintage Lace Style

One of our customers has kindly taken the time to share her experience of creating a divine wedding gown for her daughter, photographs of which have now been added to our inspirational online gallery. Grace Dodson, who along with daughter Meesha designed and created the bridal gown, both described the process as a ‘labour of love' and were both ‘very pleased with the results’.

After deciding to tie the knot, Meesha instantly had a very specific vision of the style of lace overlay for her chosen white silk dupion bridal gown but, after searching through several local fabric stores without success (finding only laces of ‘poor quality’ that looked ‘cheap and tacky’). The next step was to try looking online and, after entering the simple term ’Bridal Fabrics’  into a popular search engine she instantly discovered our website, which was the first suggested by the search engine thanks to our enduring popularity and reputation for quality.

Grace and her daughter Meesha live some distance from one another so the entire selecting and purchasing process was carried out between the pair via telephone, text and internet. Meesha soon discovered Courtney wedding lace and, falling instantly in love with its glorious design, requested a free sample be sent. After receiving this in less than a week, Meesha was convinced that Courtney bridal lace was the one for her.

Grace ordered several metres of Courtney  ivory lace along with 30 pairs of matching lace Appliqués, which again arrived in less than a week. The appliqués were painstakingly sewn on individually by hand, embellishing the bodice and torso of the wedding gown all the way down to the knee where the skirt bells dramatically and gracefully outward.

Meesha describe the finished product as ‘exactly as she imagined it would be’. She also said that the Courtney pattern gave the wedding dress ‘just the air of elegance and vintage lace glamour' she had set her heart upon.

We asked Grace to comment on her experience with Platinum Bridal Fabrics. After stating simply ‘she couldn't be more pleased with the purchase', she went on to say that the quality of our wedding dress material is ‘unsurpassed’ and that she was highly impressed by both the speed of product delivery and the prompt personal responses she received to various questions sent via email.

We also asked Grace if she would recommend our products and services to friends and family. Her immediate and flattering response was, “The entire experience was  a pleasure and I would  recommend Platinum Bridal Fabrics to anyone looking for beauty, quality and excellent customer service.
