Creative Dresses for the Independent Bride
There's nothing about you that is average. You strive to show your personal style in every aspect of your life. Then why oh why would you settle for the main stream style in your wedding dress? There are some designers out there now that will spin you right back on your heels with their edgy styles, totally off the beaten path, and oh, so beautiful. What a great way to support the efforts of the Indie designers than to choose one of their artful creations to walk down the isle in?
I am blown away by the work of Chrissy Wai-Ching. Her innovative, cutting edge style just rocks me. I find myself returning to her web site again and again just to have another look. She uses hand-dyed silks and customizes each dress to accentuate the style and curve of each bride.
kt Jean is a custom designer of couture design. Her work is pictured above. She is taking limited orders for this year, and can be contacted through her web site for orders.
While searching for truly unique options, I was so pleased to stumble across a blog that is all about Etsy designers for brides! You absolutely must visit the shop of London Demimonde
Another great option is to visit a recyled wedding shop as a commitment to sustainable living. Pre Owned Wedding Dresses has been around helping brides find the dress of their dreams and a far smaller price than a new designer gown. Remember your local thrift shops, Ebay, Goodwill and Second Hand Stores for the opportunity to find an amazing dress.
