Cyber clubwear wedding dress!? BELIEVE IT! #Fashion#Stuff we love#fairy wedding#omg dresses#red hair Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Mar 30 2009) Ariel findyourafterglow When I saw this photo pop up in the Offbeat Bride photo pool, I thought to myself HEY WAIT A MINUTE! That gorgeous wedding dress? I KNOW THAT DRESS! I'VE WORN THAT DRESS! It's called the Druid Dress and it's made by a UK clubwear company called Alienskin Clothing. It's 100% cotton and stretchy and suuuper comfortable and comes with these amazing arm-warmers and overlock stitched detailing and it's completely cyber/raver clubwear and yet OH MY GOD it makes a stunning wedding dress. And I guarantee you, that's the most comfortable woman ever featured on Offbeat Bride. No corsets, no boning, no lacing up or scratchy crinoline. Just stretchy cotton and a little bit of fairy magic. It's also the first hooded wedding dress I've ever seen. I'm in love! If you love it as much as I do, check out Alienskin's other truly offbeat bridal wear.

Reply This is the first dress to give me any pause about my gorgeous custom corset dress that i am going to rock… the thought of being sexy in comfy cotton all day and night sounds marvelous, but my reality will be a bit different! oh well, i wear soft comfy cozy every other day of my life… Reply Wow!!! Thank you so much Ariel for adding this beautiful photo of Fran getting married in the custom made Druid Dress that I made for her 😀 It was wonderful to make a wedding outfit and I hope to make many more in the future. Sparkles and Light, ~Kate technodolly~ Reply Oh sweet you used the piccie! :)) Iâ€™d bought a few things from Kate before and theyâ€™ve always been fab so when it came to ordering a wedding dress I knew who to call! I was really pleased with the result, and yup it was super comfyâ€¦ perfect for the Antigua weather. Highly recommended! 😀 Reply I have seen that dress once. Alienskin has some really nice clothing. I fell in love with that dress, and since it is cotton, it can be dyed any color! *shudders from happiness* Reply Unrelated to weddings, but now I've been to their website and I am in LUST with the Clairie Miss Faerie Top…too bad the pound/dollar exchange is still so rough. 🙁 Reply unrelated to previous comments, but my first ever hooded wedding dress was the one in the movie "so i married an axe murderer." i've always thought a hood was a brilliant alternative to a veil! Reply Hey Ariel – and anyone else who has worn this dress – how opaque is this thing? It doesn't look as opaque as a sweatshirt, but not as thin as a t-shirt either… Just worried about the seethrough aspect, as being comfy in a wedding gown sounds mighty fine to me. Reply It's pretty opaque — I would say like a brand new thick white tshirt, and I mean like a Hanes shirt, not some flimsy American Apparel thing.

In your photos the dress seems more opaque than hers… I had the sudden worry that I'd buy that beautiful comfy cotton dress and then have to buy an ugly nasty shapewear thing to wear under it. Thanks much – and thanks for running such a great site. Reply I totally heard the BELIEVE IT in Naruto's anime voice. Is this right?
