3 Different Ways You Can Customize Wedding Gowns, Manhattan, New York

If you’ve been to several bridal shops and still can’t find a wedding dress that tickles your fancy, don’t give up hope. A wonderful aspect about wedding gowns is that they can be customized in a variety of different ways. You can personalize your dress to suit your style and look like a million bucks on your special day.

3 Way to Personalize Your Wedding Dress

1. Include a Splash of Color

If you are a big fan of color but still want your wedding dress to look traditional, you can have the best of both worlds. Consider adding colorful fabric to the underskirt of your gown. Whether you choose blue or pink fabric, you have the chance to include a beautiful color in your dress without it looking too overwhelming.

2. Change Embellishments

It’s possible to add more or remove embellishments from a wedding gown. If you feel like a certain dress is too plain, consider adding a sash. This accessory emphasizes the waist and can be personalized in several ways. Whether there are rhinestones or 3-D florals on the sash, it can give a dress extra oomph. On the other hand, if you feel like there are too many elements on a gown, you can have them taken out.

3. Add Sleeves

If you found a strapless wedding dress that you like but prefer more coverage, you can always add sleeves. Most wedding gowns can be altered with sleeves and still look gorgeous. If you don’t want the sleeve to be too long, you can go with a cap sleeve. It just hangs over the edge of the shoulders and leaves the rest of the arms bare.
