  • 2 of 3

I know you can only see the back of the dress in this photo, but trust me when I say that it’s the star of the show! This one-shouldered beauty is created out of eco hemp/silk and is sure to please the most creative bride. Details include a scooped strapless neckline, low-V back for drama, and a braided one shoulder. The skirt is a full and draped a-line with a voluptuous train and hidden pockets. Petal motif on the front and back add whimsical flair. (Abstract Pretty, $1900)


Unable to spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars but still wanting a handmade dress? This chic and unique dress is surprisingly inexpensive. Sublimely soft in a whisper-weight tulle with dressed-up appeal. Featuring a crisscross bodice, pleated skirt and handcraft roses. V-neck, sleeveless and also available in white, ivory, black, lavender, pink and baby blue. (Madabby, $278)


I have a real soft spot for polka dots and this dress is so soft and sweet! This natural waist, sweetheart strapless dress is made in a lovely and unusual soft mesh fabric with large polka dots. The bodice draped on a fully boned corset bustier for a flattering fit. The skirt is lined in a lovely silk/cotton blend. They can also make this dress in a shorter length or add a train. Want a different fabric? They can do it. (Danielle Berg, $700)


This 50′s inspired dress has a sweetheart neckline under a sheer tulle V-neck overlay edged in hand sewn lace. The natural waistline has a beautiful silk band to emphasize your smallest point then a flirty Knee Length or Tea Length (shown) circle skirt. The dress is made from Silk Taffeta, overlaid with a delicate cloud of ivory Tulle trimmed in lace. It is lined in fine Organic cotton. (Pure Magnolia Couture, $900)
