Wedding dress designers are pretty good at knowing exactly what brides-to-be want in a gown. But sometimes, finding the one, gorgeous off-the-rack dress to rule them all isn’t so effortless, especially if your ideal gown has this dress’ illusion neckline, that gown’s tulle skirt and this other dress’ embellished bodice. If a custom dress is out of the cards, you can still piece together your fave bridal details into your dream wedding day look with BHLDN’s brand-new line of bridal separates.
The build-your-own portion of BHLDN’s already extensive selection of vintage-tinged bridal gowns and accessories features some of the brand’s most versatile pieces, all of which are meant to be mixed, matched and layered to create your own unique look. For instance, add drama to a simple silk satin gown with a voluminous tulle skirt, give a corset top a more delicate feel with a sheer cap-sleeved topper, take your sequined dress to the next level with a dripping-in-crystals caplet, or — our favorite silhouette transformation — pair a floor-length skirt with a cocktail-length dress that can take you from ceremony to reception like that.
The options are pretty endless — as if brides need any more details to think about. But the collection’s online layout makes it busy girl-friendly. Sectioned off into complete curated looks, you can easily glance at what top goes with what bottom and so on. Whether you take a cue from BHLDN or create your own one-of-a-kind look, consider it yet another way to add a little DIY flair to your big day.
