This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

I love planning Sim weddings, and I don't feel as if any of the default dresses in the game are "wedding-like" enough, so I bring to you a Kirstie Kelly based dress. It is not an exact replica of any dress, but it was inspired by her fashion

This dress features a fully beaded bodice with buttons in the back, and a slit with embroidery design. I apologize for the slightly dark picture of the back showing the detailed buttons, you can also see the back buttons in the full body shot.

This dress is enabled for Young Adults and Adults. It is enabled in Formal wear and Career (i.e. International Super Spy).


There is only one re-colorable area, and that is the dress itself. The dress is meant to be a wedding gown, so it is meant for the colour white, or pale pastel colours. Darker colours work as well, of course, but the darker you go, the less noticeable the beading will become (please see attached screenshot of dark colours).

I hope you like what I have created and enjoy

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Since you added this even lovelier wedding gown I will dig up the old one you made and remove it. I even noticed that black splotch myself and was like uh oh.

But I've figured it out now it was the Overlay so I made this new dress =)

Yes, I thought so. I had that dress for a while, but the black square was a little... tacky. So I was definitely overjoyed to see you made a brand new, even prettier dress!

Curses! I just had my sims married last night and I didn't have any good looking dresses for my lady. D;

But now she can still look prettier with this anyways, thanks!

@scarlett1129: I haven't a clue how to modify meshes (yet) so I'm afraid I can't do that. I don't really have any plans on shortening the gown, sorry.

@McKena: They're in the base game, somewhere in the Shoes category, heh. Sorry I can't be more descriptive. I believe the default colors are black, red and brown, so I recolored them to white

Is it possible for you to add netting or lace-ups to the front?
Great job and thanks!

Thanks for the comments
I won't be adding netting or lace-ups to this particular dress design, but maybe I'll use those in a future dress design.

Very pretty dress. The beading and the body of it is really nice, but I think, in my opinion, if you want to change it, you could make the length of the dress go down to the floor instead of the tops of her feet. I think it could look even nicer if you did that.
Just a suggestion.
