當我們決定我的婚紗要在台灣訂作而不是用租的之後, 我開始上網搜尋各式各樣不同的婚紗, 希望能找到自己喜歡的款式 .
在google上輸入wedding dress 或 bridal gown, 馬上就出現一堆網站讓你看都看不完! 以下是我個人花時間篩選過而覺得不錯的網站, 需要的人可以參考看看!
我想在這特別提到一位來自黎巴嫩的男設計師Elie Saab (埃利.薩博). 我必須說, 他設計的白紗與禮服都令我窒息及讚嘆不已! 他喜歡使用大量的水晶鑽, 串珠, 亮片, 摟空蕾絲及刺繡, 加上非常精細的裁縫與繡工, 充份讓女性展現美麗的曲線, 風格既華麗優雅又奢華高貴! 這麼有名的設計師, 我只能望著照片止我想穿上他所設計的禮服的渴啊~
總之, 我的婚紗跟Elie Saab的風格一點關聯也沒有. 雖然我有把在網路上找到的照片拿給台北的婚紗設計師看, 不過她困難搖搖頭對我說: 台灣沒有這種獨特的雪紡及面料, 而且亮片和串珠要一個一個用手工縫, 價錢會非常貴, 也非常非常耗時間, 所以可能沒辦法. 然而, 我只好失望的就地取材, 選擇了店裡已有的白紗款式. 當然除了Elie Saab的禮服照片外, 我還有準備幾張要求較低的白紗參考照片啦!
我的理智隨時都在提醒著我價錢, 我並沒有"婚"頭, 不然, 我那外星人可能早就拋下我回他星球去了!
This is not an article for men, so don't bother to read this...unless you are interested in wedding gowns!
Those websites are for bridal gowns and wedding planning, and It took quite a while for me to choose them from all other bullshit websites. Feel free to check them out if you needed.
Since I have decided to custom-made my wedding gown instead of renting it like most Taiwanese women, I started to search bridal gowns online everyday until I found some I like, which it took many weeks! I printed out those photos, so I could ask a designer in taipei to make one gown that is exactly the same or a similar one for me. But, I have to say that I always have an expensive taste!
Elie Saab is one fucking amazing designer, in my opinion! I love his work, almost all of them! You can go on google and look for him, you will be amazed if you haven't seen his work before! Anyway, I asked my designer if I could have a similar gown like Elie Saab's design, but she said it can't be done because we don't have the same material and fabric in Taiwan, and the crystals and beads are expensive, plus, she will have to sew each one of them on by hand.... It will cost a lot of money and time!
Therefore, I was disappointed and I had no choice but to choose another design. I showed her other gowns that I found online, in the end, I found one I like in her shop. It's a good thing that my reason is often around when it comes to spending money, otherwise, my alien would have left me and went back to his planet already!
The photos below are the dresses I love from Elie Saab.
