You've found the perfect wedding gown! Now it's time to make it your own. There are endless ways to personalize your gown, from adding subtle details to making major changes. Here are a few ideas to get you started:


  • Add embellishments. Beading, embroidery, lace, and sequins are all popular ways to add embellishments to your gown. You can choose to add embellishments to the bodice, skirt, or train. If you're feeling creative, you can even do your own hand-stitching.
  • Change the neckline. If you're not in love with the neckline of your gown, you can easily have it changed. There are many different necklines to choose from, so you're sure to find one that flatters your figure and personal style.
  • Add sleeves. Sleeves are a great way to add coverage and warmth to your wedding gown. If you're getting married in the fall or winter, sleeves are a must-have. You can choose from long sleeves, short sleeves, or even cap sleeves.
  • Lengthen or shorten the train. If you have a long train, you can have it shortened to make it more manageable. Or, if you have a short train, you can have it lengthened to add more drama to your look.
  • Add a belt or sash. A belt or sash is a great way to add a touch of personality to your gown. You can choose a belt or sash in a contrasting color or fabric to create a pop of color. Or, you can choose a belt or sash that matches your wedding theme.


  • Veil styles run the gamut, from birdcage to cathedral. Lengthly veils can be nightmare for outdoor ceremonies.
  • Headbands or headpieces
  • Hair clips and/or styled bobby pins
  • Tiara
