10 Handmade Wedding Dresses For the DIY Loving Bride

Stunning sheer stretch lace bodice to the waist with fitted satin waistband (elasticised) and a back satin bow, handmade satin rosettes covering the bust in all the right places. The dreamy skirt is made with gathered tulle with the lining finishing slightly shorter than the tulle to show off you feet or cute shoes. (Grace Loves Lace, $1000)


Romantic, feminine, and edgy strapless gown with built in corset bra. Beautiful cotton silk lining is hand embellished with my signature ruffles and raw bits of chiffon, creating a soft and almost feathered texture. Lovely body skimming silhouette flares open towards knees down to a small sweeping train in back. Corset is boned and has lightly lined cups with an adjustable hook and eye closure at back. Back of dress closes over corset with an invisible zip. (Kate Towers, $2200)


I know – polka dots again! But so cute! “Love Story” is an airy empire waist A line gown in a gossamer swiss dot netting. Mini flounce at bustline. Various draped layers cascade around torso into a slightly extended train. Back zip. Available in white and ivory. (Claire LaFaye, $2300)


Another affordable option. Gorgeous lace wedding dress with beautiful all lace detailing. Very vintage-y and perfect for a summer or beach wedding. The dress as shown in is cream and beige lace but other colors are also available. (Madabby, $398)
