The dresses each had simple bodices in silver silk satin and layered skirts in grey and white chiffon over gathered tulle. The skirt layers were cut and graduated in petals with tiny purple and white organza butterflies sewn with their wings left to flutter as the girls moved. The neckline and waistline of each dress was embellished with hand applied Swarovski diamante stones to echo the bride’s own dress. Shaped necklines and chiffon shoulder frills made the dresses truly unique.

Alice commissioned dresses for her grown up bridesmaids in gorgeous purple silk dupion. The simple strapless dresses have fitted and boned bodices, cut princess line with floor length a-line skirts. They have silver silk-satin sashes that loop rather than tie at the back with diamante detailing.

The butterflies were each layered with purple and white edged wings and then highlighted with silver seed-bead bodies. Their wings were left loose to flutter as the girls moved. They were sewn in a flock on each dress to look as though they had just lighted on the girls.
