Saying yes to the perfect wedding dress is tough enough, but just imagine designing the gown for your big day on your own, from start to finish. Well, that's exactly what Dana Wolley did.

Wolley is a fashion influencer in the Middle East who tied the knot to Samer Zayat this summer—July 29, to be exact—and used her Instagram account to document the step-by-step process of working with Esposa to create her one-of-a-kind dress from scratch.

Speaking to Savoir Flair a few months back, Wolley revealed that the theme for her wedding was "modern Victorian" and that she chose a lesser-known designer because it was "very important" that she have creative reign over the vision, execution, and result. 

Check out the highlights from this bride's creativity at work:

What we see before us is a champagne-colored dress that is gorgeously beaded to the nth degree. The look is topped off with an exclusive pair of Nicholas Kirkwood platform heels—"the most comfortable bridal shoe," she claims—and featured hand-picked pearls.
