There’s no question that you are excited to go dress shopping and find the gown that’s right for you. Something to remember as you choose your gown is that you can accessorize it to complete your look. Sometimes the smallest addition like a bejeweled belt can make all the difference. 



One of the simplest ways to make an impact is to add a belt to your dress. Sometimes it’s to glam up a simple dress, sometimes it’s to break up the fabric. Either way, it adds something special to a look.

If you are looking for two different looks, but not looking to spend the money on two separate dresses, a simple solution is to add a skirt to a sheath or form fitting dress that you can take off for the reception. Ta-da, two dresses!

Just because the dress you found doesn’t have a train, doesn’t mean you can’t add one! Especially if you are looking for a more traditional look or want to bring the drama.

There are several different types of veils, but either way adding a veil to your look brings a look of class. And it’s oh-so bridal!

Sleeves/Shoulder Covering

If you are getting married in a place of worship, you may want sleeves for your dress, but you might not want sleeves for your reception. So why not customize your dress with removable sleeves or an overlay?

Reception Dress

Maybe a second look was so important to you that you budgeted for a second dress. Pick something that is a little more fun and easier to move in for when you hit the dance floor!
