So you’ve chosen a fairly plain wedding gown, and now you’re having second thoughts. The great thing is that it’s much easier to embellish a dress and add flair than to take away, so it’s better to have a neutral foundation. There are lots of different things you can do to add oomph to your wedding gown. Here are 4 fun tips:
1. Add a Beaded Sash
Sashes can be elegant, flirty, fun or sophisticated. They’re available in all sorts of materials and with all kinds of embellishments.
The great thing about most sashes, especially the bead-embellished ones, is that they look like they’re part of your wedding dress.
2. Tie a Ribbon Around Your Waist
Another easy embellishment for your plain gown is to tie a simple ribbon around your waist.
You can use a ribbon in the same shade as your dress, or add a pop of color with a contrasting ribbon. It’s incredibly simple but can change the whole dynamic of your dress.
3. Add a Floral Belt
For a vintage or boho feel, add a beautiful floral belt to your wedding dress.
This works best with plain dresses that are A-line or empire-waist dresses. The great thing about this method is that you can add all sorts of colors to your dress.
4. Wear a Colored Petticoat
Nothing adds a pop of color to your plain wedding dress like a colored petticoat.
It’s another method for adding any color you’d like, and it gives an edgy, punk feel to your dress.
As you can see, you don’t have to stick with the plain old white dress if you don’t want to. There are plenty of ways to spice it up and make it more sophisticated.
