Burnt orange bridesmaid dress for Amanda in silk dupion

all the girls orange silk bridesmaids dresses in the sun

Modelled by Jenny, Zoe, Anna and Charlie

Amanda commissioned a custom orange bridesmaid dress for each of her four bridesmaids and five cravats for the groomsmen. The princess line dresses had strapless sweet-heart necklines with a ‘ballet’ style gathered piece at centre front. Each orange bridesmaid dress was made from a copper coloured silk-dupion with honey coloured tulle peeping out from the tea-length hem. An invisible zip fastened the back of the dress.

Amanda wrote: At such a special time as your wedding you want professional people who you can trust and get along with to be involved in the crucial big day elements such as bridesmaid dresses, and Felicity was just that. The dresses exceeded our expectations in terms of quality of the workmanship and they were ready ahead of schedule; if you are planning your own wedding, ‘ahead of schedule’ is a phrase you’ll come to delight in! Felicity was very easy to work with, she always gave good advice whilst having the creative and technical understanding to help create the final product. My bridesmaids were very comfortable and happy in their dresses and I was so pleased with them too, they looked beautiful. I had such a special wedding day, helped by people such as Felicity. I have already recommended her to friends.

The mother of the bride wrote: Dear Felicity, very many thanks for producing such beautiful dresses, the girls are really thrilled with them. We will send you some photos after the wedding with them all looking glamorous I’m sure. Mind you I mustn’t forget the ties. Anyway thanks again and best wishes, Jean Billige

Modern ‘scrunchy tie’ style cravats were made for Amanda’s wedding party each with a matching hankie. All the cravats were with a simple neck-band and clip for ease of dressing. Eight were made in the copper silk dupion to match the bridesmaids’ dresses and a single one in ivory silk-dupion for the groom.
