All that effort was worth it. Your daughter looks serene and elegant. The black ribbon is a subtle but dashing touch.

Such a handsome and happy couple! I very much enjoyed reading this review. The dress is absolutely gorgeous. Mission very well accomplished owing to your daughter's creative vision coupled with your immense talents. I can't fathom a more amazing setting than the famed Sydney Opera House for the ceremony! Your daughter is a vision, as is her lovely mother.

I haven't had a chance to read the full review yet (I'm looking forward to doing that later) but I just had to jump in and say WOW. If these are just 'happy snaps,' I can't imagine how gorgeous the 'proper' pictures are going to be! You've created a heart-stoppingly beautiful dress (and daughter, too!), and even though I don't know the bride, it does seem to suit her perfectly. She looks at ease and radiant. You look very beautiful as well. Congratulations to all!

Could you possibly suggest an available alternative for the skirt? It's a beautiful dress. My daughter is going to marry this summer and I believe it would be what she wants. thanks,J
