Making Your Look Your Own

Erin, Stylist

Here at Mia, we see brides everyday asking us to how to incorporate their personal style into their bridal vision. The best way to do that is by, what else, accessorizing! I am not just talking earrings and a bracelet, I mean a stunning statement necklace and purple petticoat for the fun bride, or a fabulous feather purse for the bride who doesn't want a bouquet! The wonders don't stop there, either. Here are a few more suggestions on how you can customize your wedding-day look.

Belts: A little something at the waist can change the look of your gown dramatically! Consider using a color, or use a wider sash like an Obi-belt to kick up the clean lines of a sleek fit-to-flare.

Brooches: Add a brooch to your bouquet wrap, or show off vintage brooches in your bouquet itself! Add a little bling by fastening one to that amazing detail at your hip in a dropped-waist gown.

Removable Straps/Boleros: If you'd like a little more coverage, your seamstresses to create a bolero, or even removable straps for you. (Keep this in mind when ordering your gown as you may need to purchase fabric!) You could take off the straps and add a sash that picks up your color palette, changing the look of your gown from ceremony to reception instantly!

Hair Accessories: If you choose to have a hair accessory, consider adding your 'something old' to it. Take a piece of your mother's wedding gown or veil and have your seamstress add that into your existing piece. It then becomes something special to can pass down!

The sky is the limit when personalizing your big day, so don't be afraid to make your wedding gown your own!
