Adding Straps

Adding straps can be a great way to customise your gown, especially for comfort and support purposes on a bandeau neckline. There are many ways to do this, either a simple matching lace or satin strap or add some glamour with a sequinned, sparkly or diamante version.

Belts are a wonderful way to add some personality to your wedding day look, from a wide band of colored fabric, a thin strip of black, or elaborate pieces with beads and pearls. Keep in mind that sashes draw attention to the midsection and define it, so be sure to experiment with different widths and embellishments.

Adding Sleeves

If you’ve found the perfect dress but you really want your arms covered, then why not make the dress your own and add some lace or tulle sleeves; either full length or capped! Add some personality to your gown, get your perfect dress and make it your own!
