By Deborah Lindquist You're getting married and friends and family members all seem to have opinions about what you should wear and how to plan everything. How do you accommodate tradition and the opinion of loved ones while satisfying yourself with the dress you want for your wedding? The modern bride has so many options today. From a traditional religious ceremony to a bohemian barefoot ceremony on the beach at sunset, the ceremony itself has traditional roots. The sacred bond of love, intimacy, and unity is the integral part of the tradition, no matter what your cultural roots are. The following ideas get you out of a "white-dress-only" mindset and into some interesting alternatives. Long to Short Some brides are choosing a more traditional dress for the ceremony, then changing into a piece that's more fun, maybe a shorter dress, for the reception in order to be free to dance without everyone stepping on the train. A budget-conscious way of making this formal-to-fun transition is to choose a two-piece look. For instance, this beaded muga silk and vintage lace bustier is worn here with a long hemp/silk bustled skirt. Swap the long skirt for a flirty mini for the reception. The Convertible I love items of clothing that morph into multiple looks. An interesting idea is to choose a dress that has a convertible aspect. Perhaps one with a detachable train or overskirt that can be completely removed, unveiling a slim, body-conscious silhouette underneath. Or a more covered-up bodice with sleeves that can be removed to reveal a sexy, strapless, shoulder-baring look for later. Read more here:

I just absolutely love my dress ! My mother was married 50 years ago and the dress was 50$ when she bought it and we didn’t know if anything could be done with it . I really wanted to wear her dress because my parents marriage has been an inspiration to me my entire life and I love them so much ! When I saw the final design I cried its like something I dreamed because I never thought I would wear something like this but Its as if it was always going to be my dress . Deborah was so easy to work with and I knew from the start I could trust her judgment . I glad I did !


Deborah did an amazing job! My seamstress was unavailable due to busy season, and Deborah saved the day! She was very responsive, great to work with, and had my dress done in a short amount of time. She went above and beyond what I was expecting. Besides saving the beading when she hemmed the front of my dress, she appliqued the extra details back onto the front. It looks even better than what I was expecting. I'm so happy with how my dress turned out, and in the turnaround time. I'd HIGHLY recommend her to anyone in need of alterations. She's wonderful :]


Omg! Deborah is amazing!! I had a really beautiful Vera Want dress, but it wasn't corseted in the back (it had just a zipper and fake buttons) and the neckline was straight and I just always dreamed of a sweetheart! She did an AMAZING JOB for such a good price, like half what David's bridal would charge. Honestly I don't think David's bridal could have come NEAR what Deborah did for me. I'm obsessed with it. I feel like a Helena Bonham Carter fairy bride in my dress. I could not be happier or more in love!


Absolutely perfect! I came to Deborah with an ill fitting wedding gown that had brought me to tears. I have an extreme hour glass shape that is hard to fit, which makes me very self conscious. The wedding dress sample that I had tried on was quite different from the dress I received, and Deborah completely saved the day by turning it into the best fitting, most flattering and supportive gown I could have hoped for. Thank you, Deborah, for your patience, your kindness, your humor and your talent!
