A Dress No One Will Have

Every bride wants to be unique in her own way.  How can you guarantee that the gown you choose will be unique to you? There are hundreds of designers and thousands of gowns, so here are a few tips on how to make your gown yours no matter how popular it might be! Accessories are an everyday part of life.  Well, you can do the same with your wedding gown.  Lets say you fall in love with a very popular style, do not be afraid to glam it up.  I promise not to list anything impossible or anything made up.  I have seen all of these fun changes and made note at how wonderfully creative my brides can be. No matter what the style, belts give you a small waist and fun options. You can pick sashes to match your bridal colors, or find something totally unique.

Recently I saw a completely different, one-of-a-kind masterpiece turned into something even more unique. Our bride was the first to purchase this gown ever! Then... she decided to cut off half of it! Do not be afraid girls! She is going to be the only girl in the world with that gown. In many cultures, the color red is predominant in the bridal world.  Well, why not "marry" red and white? One of our brides had a beautifully beaded gown and she added red beading to it in order to represent her culture.  How creative is that? Find a gown with red detailing or even save some money by using a red sash!

  Do not hesitate to ask your bridal consultant if ordering more fabric is possible.  A bride recently fell in love with the dress, but she wanted to add capped sleeves to the strapless gown.  We ordered her the same exact fabric from the manufacturer, and I can't wait to see the end result! Another bride loved her gown but she wanted a longer train.  Sometimes designers have the option of adding on a few feet to an existing train for an added cost.  The bustle can be a little complicated, but it is do-able.

Ok, it doesn't have to be as long as the picture, but you know what I mean ;) If you don't want to go custom with accessories, try smaller boutiques.  Rather than shopping at brand name stores, or larger "department store" type places, stick to a small intimate boutique.  They usually have a smaller selection, but you will be surprised at their different gowns.  They can carry local designers that aren't all over the magazines.  At The Bustle, we carry Somsi Couture.  She only designs her dresses (made by hand by her) for our boutique with a few sample exceptions. Local designers are different, but also aren't too wild so you won't be getting any crazy stares hehe. If you aren't too specific, don't worry. No matter what dress you fall in love with, it will be unique to you.  Your body shape and individual personality will shape your gown into something that is totally yours.
