Each and every bride is special in their own way. It couldn't be more evident than when we see different brides trying on the same dress, and somehow, it always looks different. A bride's personality comes through with colorful shoes, exciting veils, and exotic jewelry. We love to help every bride make the dress their own, sharing our bridal fashion secrets that we have built up over the years.
The easiest way to make a dress your own is to add a sash at the waist. Not only does it show off the smallest part of your body, but it usually adds some fun contrast and a splash of color. A sash is also a great way to make your dress look different for the reception, instead of opting for a second wedding dress.
We also love to add a broach. Whether the broach is colorful, antique, especially shiny, we love them all. Especially if a bride's style is simple elegance, a broach pops, and makes a great keepsake for after the wedding.
Brides are always coming up with fun and new ideas to make their wedding gown different. It's always exciting for us to hear about the new ideas, so please share them with us!

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 without.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.
