Maternity Wedding Dresses from Tina Mak 01.11.2011

Expecting your little one and not quite sure where to find a wedding dress that will fit perfectly and look gorgeous?

Stop looking at plus-size wedding dresses, because they’re not really made for your growing belly. We’re happy to introduce to you Tina Mak—a fashion designer who specialises in elegant maternity wedding dresses. After seven years of designing bespoke wedding dresses for the Partina brand, she and her husband launched a maternity bridal collection that’s sure to delight all the brides-and-mums-to-be out there.

All the pieces in her collection drape beautifully. Nothing is made of heavy fabric or has bulky lines; everything is soft and flowy and has ample space in the tummy area, designed for the utmost comfort and style of the expectant bride.

Tina talks about wanting to be a wedding dress designer so badly, she couldn’t imagine doing anything else: “I didn’t stop dreaming until it became a reality. Every achievement and mistake I’ve made has allowed me to realize my dream.”
