(Alita Graham gown for Kleinfeld)

Bride Ashley has a full bust, a G cup to be specific. So Ashley was concerned about being able to find a gown that will be sexy, but not trashy and would provide ample coverage without making her feel like a “granny”.  The challenge for me began with simply finding samples would accommodate Ashley’s ample bust.  After trying a couple of gowns, Ashley found a gown of delicate lace and flowers that she loved, but when her mom declared the dress “awful”, Ashley was crushed.

The appointment turned around when I put Ashley in a ruched Alita Graham dress with a full ruffled skirt.  It seemed perfect except for the fact that it still didn’t give the coverage Ashley wanted.  After I reworked the neckline with the fabric from the dress’ matching stole, and a complete “head to hem” makeover by Lindsay and Raychel, a confident Ashley strutted her stuff down the aisle of style.



I used a simple cathedral-length veil from so it wouldn’t detract from the ruffled skirt.



Lindsay added hair extensions to add fullness to Ashley’s hair, while Raychel’s application of makeup enhanced Ashley’s natural radiant beauty.



Sparkling beaded floral detailing at the waistline.



Lindsey secured Ashley’s hair and the veil with an elaborate headpiece from Malis Henderson.



A bouquet in her wedding colors of bright yellows added a pop of color to Ashley’s final reveal.
