If you are getting married, one of the things that you’re probably already doing is looking for your wedding dress. Shopping for a wedding dress can be a super fun experience, and many soon-to-be brides love involving their mothers, grandmothers, aunts, best friends and cousins in the experience.


Whether or not you decide to include all of your loved ones on your wedding dress search, if you’re a soon-to-be bride who wants to find a wedding dress that’s a little different, you may need to search some little-known places to find that perfect gown. Here are some tips for finding a dare to be different wedding dress for your big day.


  1. Search online


First, look online instead of in department stores. Many people go straight to wedding dress stores to find their wedding dresses, but this is definitely not the place to go if you’re looking for something a little bit different. Instead, you’ll want to search online. Check out boutique stores that sell some of their line online or thrift stores that have online boutiques as well.


  1. Consider having your dress made for you


You might also consider having a dress made especially for you. Many seamstresses will charge you a reasonable price to make a wedding dress for your big day. The great thing about this option is that you’ll always get a dress that fits you perfectly because it will be made for your exact frame. Also, you’ll be able to pick the style, and you can make it as unique as you want it. Try a two-piece dress for example!


  1. Add a little bit of color to your dress


Most brides want a white or off-white dress, but in this day and age, your dress doesn’t have to be white or off-white. In fact, it can be any color that you want it to be. On the other hand, if you want to stick to the tradition but be a little bit different too, you might consider having a white or off-white dress with a pop of color at the hem or bodice.


Try any of these ideas to make your wedding dress super unique on your big day.
