Make Your Wedding Attire Your Own!

The traditional white, big princess wedding gown, isn't for everyone. Brides now are making their wedding attire their own and showing off THEIR style! My job becomes even more exciting than just getting to help a bride, when I get to meet a bride that has a different style, and a vision for their wedding like no other bride I've ever had!

For example, this past weekend, I met a great bride who wanted the color pink for her wedding gown. She said it was the color she felt she looked the best in, and it went with her invitations! The picture above is her new wedding gown!

Then I had a bride not too long ago, that was having a Night of the Dead theme. What did she do to make her wedding attire her own? She got an Erin Cole BLACK veil!

And the newest trend, and a great way to show your personality in your bridal wear is COLORFUL SHOES! We had a bride that is wearing bright purple shoes!

Have any interesting ways you have or plan to make your wedding attire your own?
Post & let us hear it!

Top 10 Advice on finding the DRESS!

  • Number One Rule: Be open minded! What you think reminds you of your grandmother's dress on the hanger, may in fact be the dress of your dreams.
  • Bring someone that knows your style better than their own. I'm sure the groom doesn't want to see you in something that your bestfriend would wear on her wedding day
  • DON'T PURCHASE YOUR DRESS ONLINE! You miss out on the whole experience.
  • Don't worry what the groom will think. If he loves you, he will love what you pick.
  • Have fun! Remember that you have been dreaming of this day since you were five. Don't let the decision put a cloud over your head
  • If you hate the little bow on the dress, ask the consultant if you can order it Chances are you can. Keep in mind (contrary to what the magazines always say) there might be a charge for it. It won't lower the cost of the dress.
  • Price vs. Love: If you love the dress, GO FOR IT! Don't settle for less on what your wearing for your big day. You can always take some of the budget from the centerpieces and so on. No one will know and we won't tell.
  • Research designers online and make a scrap book of styles that you like. Do keep in mind, that it may all change when you start trying on.
  • Save the group shopping for the mall. This should be a personal experience that you should only share with one or two.
  • When you find it, you find it. Don't second guess yourself or you will pick your second favorite.
