Your wedding day is about a celebration of love and you want your special day to reflect your unique style together as a couple, but even more than that, you want customization, personal touches and one-of-a-kind elements that no one else has done. No matter the style of your dream wedding, whether you are a boho, glam, classic, sexy or simply chic bride-to-be, there are subtle and lavish ways to make your wedding look exactly what you want it to be and to have it be all your own vision.
Your wedding look is perhaps the most intimate part of the picture and the possibilities of making it all yours are endless, maybe even a bit overwhelming. So we’ll break it down into the five main ways that you can express yourself and your individual style on your wedding day:
1. Choosing a changeable bridal gown. Designers hear the want for individualism loud and clear, and many of them offer many options within a dress. Straps to strapless, one color to another, removable skirts, corsets and zippers and buttons, oh my!
2. Adding layers. You can choose a few pieces so that your look changes all evening. Never risk a boring photograph with choices like removable sleeves, lace overlays, shawls and detachable skirts. Again, if you can Dream it, we can find it, and you can make it yours.
3. Alterations. Ninety-nine percent of the time, a wedding dress needs to be altered to fit with perfection once you pick it up from the boutique. Keep this in mind during your appointment because the best seamstresses can make changes to any wedding dress. For example, bustles can be added, sleeves can be changed and sometimes they can create personalized items from the extra pieces left from the alterations.
4. Shoes. The rules on wedding shoes are limitless! Whether you want 4 inch heels, sneakers, cowboy boots, bare feet, wedges, the choice is yours! This is one of the easiest places to make your style voice heard loud and clear.
5. Hair pieces and veils — or both. A cathedral length veil for the ceremony could be trailed by glamorous birdcage veil for the reception. A stunning princess tiara could shimmer during the “I do’s” and an understated headpiece could glimmer for the after party. The options are available, so make sure to explore what best suites your personality.
