Nobody knows you better than you and nobody knows what looks good on you better than you are your best resource when it comes to your bridal attire and accessories! Now unless you are an accomplished seamstress, I'm not advising you to tackle sewing your own dress but there are many other more simple things you can certainly do.

Sometimes it is as simple as buying items that are plain and dressing them up with sequins or beads. Sometimes it is as simple as purchasing things that aren't marketed for "weddings" but they certainly could be!
