COUTURE LOOKS UNDER $1000.00

Okay, okay a few are a tad over a grand, but just a tad. Every so often I find something out there that works visually as well as with a high level of craftsmanship that I just have to share. All these gowns from Jenny Woo's Wedding Alternatives are perfect couture finds. The minimalist bride will love the simple lines. What I found great about them is each embodies the perfect backdrop for customizing.
Customizing a ready-made gown is a hot option right now. It involves remodeling and/or embellishing one already put together. It can be store bought, sewn or inherited as long as it's fairly basic and free of mass adornment like these. Bring me any one of these gems and I'll have a ball with it while making you look like a couture bride. . .
And check this out: Most styles are available in an assortment of real silks from the highest grade to decent quality but less expensive which invariably brings down the price.
