Designing My Dress with Allie Hawthorne

Updated: Apr 12, 2023

For every women in my life I have an image in my head of the type of wedding dress I imagine they would wear. I love it when that special day comes around and I get to see how close my vision was. What's even more special is when I get to use my vision to create their beautiful dress.

When Allie came to me with her inspiration images I couldn't get my pencil on the page quick enough. Together we created her romantic bohemian gown with a flowing mesh skirt, illusion bodice with hand sewn lace. At the last fitting Allie decided she would like a little more drama for the ceremony so we designed a detachable train to could be removed for dancing later in the night.

"I came to Laura with a rough idea in my head and about a million pinned photos on Pinterest of what I wanted for my wedding day. After our first meeting she came back to me with a beautiful sketch of the dress of my dreams, it was perfect! From there she made the process easy from picking the perfect lace and material to the final fitting (a glass of bubbly included). Even my Nanny a seamstress of 40 years couldn't help but point out how perfectly made my dress was. My dress was perfect and made my special day even more so!"
