This fashion designer created her own wedding dress and it's beautiful

When it comes to pinning down your dream wedding dress, it can feel like an impossible task to find "the one".

Unless, of course, you make the dress yourself.

And that is exactly what fashion designer Erin Beatty decided to do. The co-founder and creative director of womenswear label Suno designed her own gown to wed film maker Alexander Tyre Sidon, and the result was beautiful.

Beatty's design was inspired by a piece of vintage white lace she stumbled upon in Switzerland and couldn't bare to leave behind.

The designer told Vogue, "I loved the texture of the lace from the moment I saw it. Everyone was shocked that I went with a white lace gown, but there was something simple and organic about it, which was the feel I wanted for our Santa Barbara wedding."

While the Colorado born fashion designer is renowned for her print designs, she opted for something simpler on her wedding day.

She said, "Something about having a son and having him there made me want a look that felt more traditional. I wanted something covered but still sophisticated, elegant but not uncomfortable. It was my first time designing a wedding dress—and I loved it."

The pair tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in the garden of Sidon's family home. The designer described the day as "truly enchanting".
