Making an Off-The-Rack Wedding Gown Customized: Trimmings for Dresses

Every bride looks forward to her big day.  From the time she's a little girl, she plans and envisions what her wedding day will look like as she walks down the aisle to her handsome groom.

The day is finally coming.  She has the man, the ring, and the date all set. She and her family have visited several dress shops, and she has decided on the one to wear on the day she will become a wife. She arrives at tailor shop ready to make the dress her own.  Besides the typical hemming and cinching, there are many trimmings for dresses that a tailor can use to transform a bride's gown.

Classic laces added to the hem or bodice of a dress add a slight accent. They can also be used to add straps to a strapless dress, completely transforming the look.

Fringes, furs, and feathers add a lot of trendier detail to a wedding gown. For a Great Gatsby theme, add some fringe down the side of the dress or in levels down the skirt of the dress.  Feathers add a white elegance starting at the waist and going down.

Appliques can transform the bodice of a wedding gown, or even the neckline with a unique collar.  A variety of beads add glisten to the dress.
