Jazmin's muy caliente, wedding dress, inspired by a pop surrealism artist


We borderline stalked Jazmin to get more details on this incredible gown. So here's the scoop. Jazmin found herself between a rock and a hard place when dress shopping. She needed a light weight dress (she got married in Mexico) and something affordable. When she didn't have any luck buying one she decided the next best option was to make it herself.


She crafted this delight out of linen with a light cotton lining. The bottom was a separate petticoat that she layered with torn pieces of the same linen as the dress, and a sheer chiffon type fabric. Muy caliente.

Now for the best part, the embroidered train! With only three month until the wedding, Jazmin called upon her friend River for help. With some design direction from Jazmin, River drew inspiration from Caia Koopman's work to embroider the train. River lovingly dedicated over 100 hours to finish it! Jeez, but totally worth it, because this gown is gorgeous! Jazmin is actually planning on framing it once she is able to clean the dress.

Hopefully now we can talk her into giving us more details on the actual wedding next! Until then, head on over to her flickr for more photos.

  1. How do people get so talented? If I decided to make my own wedding dress, I'd end up wrapped in a towel with ill-fitting sleeves!

    11 agree
  2. That dress is AMAZING! Hands down one of the best dresses I've ever seen! Love the details and the cut and the bride!

  3. freaking out about this dress!!!! you two make a wonderful team!!! and i love caia coopman's art- infact i have a tattoo of one of her paintings 😀 love love love

  4. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous! There's nothing like a hand-made dress! I have a particular fondness for the design, since my own wedding had a Dia de los Muertos aspect to the theme, hah hah. Beautiful dress!

  5. Wow!! Thanks for all the positive feedback on the dress! Making the dress was stressful for the both of us, just because of the time crunch, and definitely a labour of love- but I would not have changed it for the world. If anyone would like River's info, please let me know.

    • A bit late…but I LOVED doing the embroidery for this! I think Jazmin is just wonderful and adore her fabulous self,but she is a class act and a professional, too. We were two stressed out long-distance collaborators, but the result was certainly stunning. Thanks, Jazmin, for the chance to be a part of your creation!

  6. that is without a doubt the very best wedding dress EVER! so freaking cool. please quit your day job and set up shop on etsy.

  7. I actually screamed when I saw this, I love it!
    Extremely beautiful.
    River is so talented, I do a little bit of embroidery, but nowhere near good enough to embroider on a wedding dress! x
