Bridal Gowns to Stand Out
For a subtle change that will make the world of a difference to your dress, opt for some covered buttons. Covered buttons can be a stunning complement to any style of dress, giving a glamorous and timeless appeal to the garment. For a minimal and modern dress, having buttons in the back can add a hint of something different without being over the top for a more simple design and silhouettes. If you really want something unique, opt for some coloured buttons to give your dress a special twist.
There are so many styles, colours, fits and designs that wedding gowns come in. For a bride that wants to stand out with some extra drama, a detailed back is an option. Detailed backs can be open with beading, have a keyhole, illusion fabric, bows, lace, or bling.
This rings true for dresses that seem traditional in the front but have an extravagant back with immense detail. It’s sure to make a statement as a bride walks down the aisle and can make for some stunning photographs.
Flowers and Appliques
Adding appliqués and flowers has the potential to really make a dress unique and stand out from the crowd. Appliqués are most commonly made from lace and add an intricate and addition to your gown. They can also contain elements such as beads or pearls to provide an extra dimension and sparkle to your dress. If you love floral patterns, adding three-dimensional flowers can be a great addition to any dress.
Nothing makes you stand out quite like adding a statement bow to your dress! Bows have been a trend in the bridal world for a long time due to the elegance and style they add. Whether it’s a structured bow that gives off a formal feeling, or a loose bow to add to the bohemian style, there is an option out there for everyone. Adding a bow can really make all the difference, and once again you don’t have to stick with white or ivory! Bows are a great way to throw some colour into your wedding dress and show everybody your true personality.
Here are just a few wedding dress alterations you can have to make you stand out. On your wedding day all that matters is that you’re happy, and having your dress represent who you are is just one of the many things that will have you feeling special.
