Design Your Own Dress ... Say What?


Bride, Dana, in her Design The Dress gown.

Design The Dress 2011,

Yeah, you read that right. Design. Your. Own. Wedding. Dress. YOU design it. You get to essentially play bridal gown designer!

If you've searched high and low looking for the perfect amount of ruffles, a little bit (or even a lot) of bling in the right spots, or just the modern, glamorous gown you've always pictured in your mind but can't find it anywhere ...  you might want to stop by See the online gallery of the dresses founder Erin Coleman created and the looks, styles ,and designers that have inspired them.

Provide detailed photographs and descriptions of the design you'd like and Erin creates your dress. Prices range from $650 to $1,150 depending on the time needed to create and complete and the fabrics used for design. Plan for a five-month lead time as dresses are typically completed between 95 and 110 days.

Who has thought of creating and designing their own wedding gown? What designers and dress styles inspire that look?

About Hannah

There are few things Hannah loves more than Southern charm, classic Ray Ban aviators, a string of pearls, and Sunday afternoons. An admirer of all things lovely and especially the written word, she put her English degree to good use after graduating from UNC Chapel Hill and moved to Charleston where she dove head first into the journalism scene, covering everything from boutique openings to café launches. But the Old North State (and a fiancé of her own) called her back home and now she’s using her experience, creativity and knowledge to write about what she loves most—love.
