I want to WOW the crowd…

These dazzling knee length, contouring dresses will make a statement, without the focus being taking off the blushing bride.

I don’t want to wear the same dress as someone else…
This has to be one of the most gut renching of feelings. Spending time and money on the all important dress only to arrive at your venue and spot the same dress on someone else. Its even more embarrassing when one of you wears it better than the other.
In this technology savy age where we are all too socially aware of others, how can you buy something at the click of a button, stylish and unique, yet expect to be the only one who will ever spot it in the first place? Then why not think out side of the box and not wear a dress at all?
