I love looking at fashion illustration and plan on having a photo of my dress turned into one, a-la Katie Holmes. I thought I''d share a few artists'' contact information I''ve come across in case there are any other brides who want to do the same.

This ''sample'' illustration was done by this etsy artist.

Hudson, if you do it, let me know who you go with. I''m still debating between these illustrators.

I think it''s the coolest idea ever.
Glad you like it, monarch! I like the idea of having something ''commemorative'' on the wall without it being an actual photo. My idea is to have one done of my dress and one of DH''s suit.

That''s a really cool idea! How many pictures did you have to send? Thanks.

Also, from that angle, your dress looks really, really similar to mine...did you get it at David''s Bridal? Either way it''s gorgeous
Here''s mine:

Hey QueenB29,

I haven''t sent in my photos yet; still trying to decide which illustrator to go with. I''d assume you can send in a few so they can get a ''fee for the gown.

You look beautiful in that photo; I love your gown!

I have one! I sold my dress and the sketch is a treasured keepsake. Sketch Thread
Oh, goldenstar, I love it! How great that you have a sketch from the original designer.
What a great momento.

Great photo, CK!

If you ladies end up doing an illustration, come back and let us know which artist you went with. I''m still mulling it over.

I''d love to do it, but it''s a bit pricey. Dreamlines seems to have the lowest price, but you don''t get to see it until they ship it to you.

Well, I designed my own dress so I had to make a sketch of it first, haha. But I wouldn't mind a nicer one, professionally done. I also can't find where I put the sketch..whoops.. I have a lot of friends who are professional artists though, lucky me!

Sorry the pic isn't so good, I took it with my camera because my scanner is busted :/

Here's my actual dress:
