About Bride Chic

I've found that while brides are searching for new ways to economize these days they still want to keep that 'chic factor' going... As a result, more are opting for the simple budget-consciouswedding dress then taking it to the dressmaker or designer to get it personally customized. So how is customizing your wedding dress different than a custom made gown? A custom gown is made from scratch, that is, you and the designer working with a pattern and raw cuts of fabric to create it from the ground up.

Customizing a ready-made dress is different. It involves remodeling and/or embellishing one already put together. Once your simple dress is delivered, consider adding a detachable train to the waist and heirloom lace to the bodice. Those two details if integrated right would make the dress ideal, distinctively yours. Customized! Start with a Simple, Unadorned Wedding Dress

Below are a few great wedding dresses that would make ideal candidates for customization. Think about what embellishment you might add... Ruffle details for a romantic look, a silk gauze train that floats when a breeze comes by? An overskirt of tulle, or an embellished bridal belt? The possibilities are endless! Customize Your Dress with Lace, Rosettes, a Train, or Tulle

In the last photo, you'll find a few inspirations for customizing your wedding dress. From left to right...

- This lace over blouse is a beautiful addition to a straplesssheath style wedding dress. While lace is expensive, with the right designer, a little bit can go a long way!

- This gorgeous shoulder swag of pink rosettes suddenly turns the strapless bodice into an asymmetrical neckline!

- I customized this white wedding dress, and it was a pleasure! The gown is a simple sheath with criss-cross straps in back. I added a silk organza train dappled in rose petals and silk florals.
