Today’s wedding is the epitome of a DIY wedding… Jordan the bride actually made her dress! Did she do a fantastic job or what!!?? She looks absolutely stunning! In keeping with the DIY-ing… the brides sister was her wedding planner, her bridesmaids made the bouquets and bouts and her father preformed the ceremony! Wow, you go girl! What a beautiful day…

    Hi Christy,

    I bought the shoes from lulus.com and then my sister got glitter glue or (E600 glue), brushed it on a slightly sanded heel, then poured the glitter on. Fine glitter is better, but we couldn't find the right color with our short time frame :) Its really simple. You can also choose to spray with a clear top coat of you want. I went to fashion school at FIDM where I learned how to make clothing from scratch. With my dress form, I used ribbon to piece the areas I wanted to drape, then made the pattern accordingly, and went from there. It was very tedious, but well worth it. Im glad you love the dress :)

What a great wedding dress! I'd like to know if she followed a manufactured (Simplicity, Vogue, etc) pattern or if she created her own pattern.

I love weddings like this one!

How did you walk on the sand in your heels? I'm getting married on the beach in June and htis is my biggest dilemma.

    Hi Gina! I will add my advice too... I wore my beautiful shoes all the way to the sand - then walked barefoot. I wanted to feel the sand in my toes. Then after the ceremony and pictures and everything, I made a quick trip to my room and washed my feet before I put them back into my shoes! :)

      I was thinking that but my fear is my dress will be too long and I will step I it and trip down the aisle.

    Hi Gina, I only wore my shoes on the sand for my individual pics. Our pictures together after ceremony werent in sand so it worked well. Him and I both didnt wear shoes at ceremony and everyone else wore sandals/shoes. I wanted us to be the only ones with shoes off. I kept them off for family pictures as well, since we were still in sand, then put them after.

      Gina, I didnt read your prior response about dress being too long with no shoes. Mine definately was way longer, because i had 4.5in heels. I just walked slow on the sand so that helped with not tripping on the length.

Did you need a permit to get married on this beach and was there alot of people around I want to get married at lovers point also :)

    Hi Jessica,

    No you do not need a permit unless you have 50 or more people (i believe) or serve food on the beach. You can call the monterey county office and reconfirm. Also, There was no one else on the beach by us, or the adjacent beach. There were some walking by above. We did get married on a Wednesday though. If you got married on a weekend, there will be a lot of people around

Hi Jordan, I just have a couple of questions about the train on your dress ...I'm making my own too and love the train on your dress. !f you could get back to me I'd love the help.

Thanks, Palmer

    Hi Palmer My train was a large piece (whatever size you want) of fabric that was the shape of a square. Not a perfect square, but not as dramatic as a rectangle. Then I got 5 pearls and attached them to the dress and train in a "v", 1 in center top and 2 on each side. 3 were holding train, the others were for decor. The rest of the train was carefully pinched and tacked if needed, to make ruffle affect. If you have any more questions let me know. would love to see the final outcome :)

      February 11, 2014

      Thanks Jordan! I'm happy to share my final outcome. I was wondering if you have any recommendations on where to look for the lace trim? Ive been looking and it's really hard to find. Thanks, Palmer;)

      Sorry for the late response. I live in the bay area and went to wholesale shops in SF and Berkeley to find my fabric. Don't go to the branch stores. You will need to go to the more random stores to find the best options of fabric. Hope this helps :)
