Custom Bridal Illustration Wedding Gifts

Bridal Fashion Week starts tomorrow so what better time to feature some of my latest custom bridal illustrations. I'm regularly commissioned through my bridal print shop, Brooklit Bride, to draw brides by their friends and families as a custom wedding or bridal shower gifts. This past wedding season however, it was my own friends and family who were tying the knot. I was my own client, sketching up illustrations for wedding gift after wedding gift, two of which I'm featuring today. First up is my beautiful stepsister Vanessa (shown above) in a sweetheart strapless Marisa gown with floral lace overlay that trickled off as it flowed down the skirt.
Next is Jen (shown above,) a fellow FIT fashion design major and one of my closest friends from college. Jen wore a lovely Vera Wang for Davids Bridal organza gown with fern patterned embroidery of metallic and silk with a net overlay. It was such a unique pattern, I really enjoyed rendering this one. (In the original illustration all the layers of organza really popped with beautiful shadows and highlights but the scanner wasn't corroborating so the skirting isn't showing up too well in here in this image.)
This last custom bridal illustration is Marisa, and was a gift to her from her friend and coworker. The many layers of ruffles on her dropped waist gown were certainly tedious to render, but I have to admit I love the outcome of this gorgeous BHLDN gown. And so did Marisa, the bride and her coworkers Instagrammed away upon receiving the final sketch! 

If you would like your own custom bridal sketch or to give one as a gift you can check out the custom listings in my Etsy bridal print shop Brooklit Bride. Custom illustration gift certificate's are also available as well as an option to add the groom and have both the newlyweds sketched. For more about my custom process you can take a look at this older Fabulous Doodes post from a few years ago where I've shared each illustrated step-by-step
