Custom Casablanca Bridal Wedding Dress: Style 2331 Ainsley + V Neckline
There’s nothing quite like receiving images from a gorgeous winter wedding in a customized Casablanca Bridal dress! Stunning Saryn customized Style 2331 Ainsley to perfectly fit her vision for her wedding day. By bringing up the original low plunging neckline to a more modest V-neckline and removing the beaded belt for a simpler, more minimal wedding dress style, this glowing bride was able to create the gown of her dreams. We couldn’t be more in love!
With Casablanca Bridal, the customization options are endless! Whether you want to change a few small details of the original style, like Saryn did, or craft a dress of your own, we offer the most beautiful (AND most affordable) custom wedding dresses.
Saryn and her husband Evan got married at The Everly in Kansas City, MO. By incorporating a mixture of wedding décor styles, these two created a minimal, bohemian-rustic masterpiece, captured by Jill Caren Photography.

Describe your experience of saying “yes” to the dress!
"As the stylist was explaining their process of me and my guests going around the store and picking out all the gowns I wanted to try on, I just knew that I would definitely be the one to pick out the dress of my dreams. I said that I knew myself and nobody else would know what I wanted."
"As I tried on dresses, none of them felt like “the one.” I would describe what I did and didn’t love about the dresses, and my stylist quietly listened. At the end, she brought in some dresses that she thought would fit my desires."
"When she walked in with Ainsley, I knew it was the one. I tried it on and asked if I would be able to make a few adjustments, and she said yes, of course! When she also said that it was within my budget, that was when I knew I had to say yes."
Tell us your love story!
"Evan proposed in a way that captures our entire love story. He took me out to find this “new store” that someone told him about, to grab something for a little party we were going to that evening. On the way to this “new store,” he kept casually driving by and acknowledging the locations of various points of our relationship: Where we had our first date, our first kiss, etc."
"We finally ended up at the dam where he first told me that he would never leave me, which was one of the most pivotal points in our relationship, considering I had significant abandonment issues. Him telling me he would never leave me was something that took me years to believe."
"We walked down to the water and started skipping rocks. He grabbed my hands and started talking all of this sweet nonsense that I don’t remember because I was in complete denial and bliss. Then, he asked me to be his wife and gave me the most perfect ring I have ever seen. He had planned for my roommate to show up shortly after, and she took some photos of us and then we went over to that party I mentioned before to celebrate with our friends."
What’s your favorite thing about your husband?
"My favorite thing about my husband is how deeply he loves Jesus. Because of the intimacy he has with our God, he is able to love and serve me in a way that I have never experienced before."
What is your favorite moment from your wedding?
"My favorite moment was our feet washing ceremony. Looking up to see my husband crying as I washed his feet reminded me that this was the most crucial and powerful foundation we could have laid out for our marriage. We wanted the first thing we did in our marriage to be an act of us humbling ourselves and serving one another in a way that is far from glamorous, because that’s what marriage is about."
Do you have any advice to other brides?
"My advice would be to enjoy the process. Engagement is an exciting and once in a lifetime opportunity. Don’t rush through it. He’s not going anywhere. You will get input from everyone, thank them for their suggestion, and then do what you two truly want. Do not spend your entire engagement trying to please everyone, because you will neglect yourselves."
"Please, please, please do not sweat the small details, because on your day, the only thing you (and everyone else) are going to pay attention to is the love that you two have for one another. When considering that, the best thing you can do to prepare for your wedding day is to spend your engagement nurturing and tending to your relationship. Prepare for marriage, not just the wedding."
