Customisable Couture- Create Your Own Bridal Look

One of the hottest trends in the bridal industry right now is customisation, with brides loving the opportunity to personalise their look. Gone are the days of endless rails of ready to wear dresses where ‘what you see is what you get’, now you can choose different styling options as well as adding purpose made separates to create a look which suits your individual style perfectly. 

One popular way of incorporating this is with detachables, in the form of trains, sleeves, capes, over skirts, over jackets- the list is endless. Today we explore our unique dress collection which allows you to choose a gown unique to your style and perfectly suited to your venue as well as the time of year. Another great advantage of building your own look is being able to change it up from day to night with the quick snap of a popper!

Detachable Sleeves

Three of our dresses- Sarah, Madeline and Marianna- all have unique sleeve options which transform them instantly, giving you one gown with three possible looks in each. Keep your friends guessing whether you actually have one dress or two as you change up the look!

Sarah, our dramatic Mikado ballgown comes with detachable cape sleeves which take the dress from classic elegance to high end couture in seconds. Also combine this dress with either one of our ultra-modern Rebecca or Olivia capes and the look changes once again.

Madeline is a beautifully fitted chiffon gown with a soft flair and delicate lace detail. Take this look from ceremony into night reception by removing the soft voluminous sleeves that fit under the lace cap sleeves with an elasticated top, making them feminine and pretty as well as secure and comfortable.

Our Spanish inspired Marianna dress has the most sleeve options in one gown. With two detachable sleeve options, asymmetric shoulders and detachable flutter sleeve, the mix and match possibilities on this dress are endless.

Detachable Capes And Shawls

Another favourite from our dress collection is Grace, largely due to the cleverly folded detachable shawl that looks like the bride has rich fabric wrapped around her shoulders. Positioned on secure elasticated armbands, this off the shoulder look is different to a lot of other off the shoulder gowns because it enables a bride to have more movement with her arms. I mean you want to be able to hug your guests, right?

One of our statement pieces is the Rebecca cape which adds instant drama to any bridal look, and is also a very modern take on the veil. It’s almost like the ‘New Look’ to a veil as brides are starting to push the boundaries of tradition. Pictured below we’ve paired the Rebecca cape with our stunning Isla gown, which has the matching lace detail on the hip.

Detachable Trains And Skirts

We all love a huge dramatic train but sometimes they are not practical once all the formalities of your wedding are over. So why not opt for a detachable option and have the best of both worlds?

Our stunning Grace gown- already appearing with the detachable shawl- also has a beautiful pleated Mikado train that fastens to the back of the dress. This is cleverly disguised under a lace motif, so once it ‘s removed your guests will never know.

We also love the romantic tulle train from the Erin dress. This full sheer train is so soft and sheer it doesn’t hide any detail of the dress underneath, as well as being as light as a feather, allowing the bride to move at ease around her guests at the reception.

A train can drastically change the look of a dress and we love that brides now have the option to wear their dream dress both with and without.
