When it comes to weddings and brides, each culture has a different tradition. In western countries, for example, people typically wear traditional white/ivory wedding dresses in different styles. In India,brides wear pink or red wedding dresses.  Brides who are Catholic typically wear modest wedding dresses.The same thing goes for certain Jewish brides. As for the Muslim brides, they wear modest wedding dresses with head cover-ups called hijabs.

Having said that, many Hijab brides in the US find difficulty in finding the perfect Hijab Wedding Dress or the perfect Modest Wedding dress for their big day. While many brides are usually capable of finding modest wedding dress, they get caught in the problem of having to add lace or material to cover up the neck for example, extra material to cover up the shoulders or the back neckline.  Adapting a wedding dress to their preferences is not an easy task. Even if it gets amended, it is usually clear that extra work has done to the gown and it often does not look like one blended piece. This is why at Brides & Tailor, we have made it our mission to cater to brides of all backgrounds to make sure that their gown is done to their liking from the time we start designing it from scratch.

 Hijab wedding gowns are actually not as limited or even limiting as one might think. There are so many ways you can have your perfect bridal hijab wedding dress without compromising your taste or veil.

In this blog, we will showcase 4 of our gorgeous Hijab Wedding Dresses and the process that we follow in creating your perfect modest wedding dress or the perfect Hijab Wedding Dress. We will show you how easy it is to order your custom hijab wedding dress from the comfort of your home! We will also include some photos from our brides’ wedding day so you can see how the final product looked like when they wore it! Are you ready? Let’s begin! 🙂

 

1- Hijab Wedding Dress number 1 ( Mermaid Hijab Wedding Dress)

This Hijab Wedding Dress was created for our Michigander bride Haneen. Haneen searched for a mermaid Hijab Wedding Dress for months, and after getting tired from hopping to a bridal boutique to another, she got in contact with us and we were all set to help! Since she wanted several Wedding Dress ideas based on a variety of photos, we decided to draw a sketch for her to be able to visualize how the end result would be like! Haneen wanted a mermaid gown with a long bodice to create a beautiful proportional slimming. effect. She also loves beadings, so we created the sketch to showcase beading and pearls on it, and the most important part she wanted, was having a removable train which can be easily removed/put on for a royal bridal entrance. One of the most unique things about her wedding dress’s skirt is that she wanted a Bling effect in it. This is what she eventually got:) This is how her initial sketches looked like before we began with her gown :

You can order your custom wedding dress sketch on our Etsy Store by clicking here

After getting Haneen’s Body measurements using our measurements sheet, work started on her dress. First, Brides & Tailor sent her a variety of lace patterns that would suit her gown. We then used what she pick to create the applique pattern, and shared it with her so she could stay updated with the process from start to finish! This was how gorgeous the dress looked like when it finished! Seeing the bride super happy is always the best gift!

Needless to say, the bride looked even more gorgeous on her wedding day! We created her wedding veil with the same lace of the dress so it can match its style, and everyone on her Wedding Day just fell in love with her look! Here some photos!

 

 

 

 

How gorgeous did she look like? I’m in love with her overall look!

2-Hijab Wedding Dress # 2 ( Ballgown Hijab Wedding Dress)

Our second Hijab Wedding Dress Style here is a Ballgown Style. It was also created for one of our most awesome brides, Hawraa, who also wanted something specific based on several inspirational photos she had. Brides & Tailor got into work and started it off with a lovely sketch!

 

 

 

After our bride approved the sketch, she picked her lace pattern and work began! This is the end result:

 

 

 

 

 

Hawraa’s Wedding was supposed to take place this March, but unfortunately had to be postponed due to Covid-19. Needless to say, I am pretty sure she will look more than gorgeous on her wedding day!

 

3-Hijab Wedding Dress 3 ( Ballgown Wedding Dress with lace and no bling )

One of the most beautiful wedding dresses we have also created in the past few months is this lovely Ballgown Hijab Wedding Dress. It was created for our Hijabi Bride Razan from Ohio, and she stressed out the importance of having something simple and elegant at the same time. Therefore, we created her wedding dress with lace but without any bling. The lace was gorgeous enough to make her dress a showstopper! Take a look:

 


 

This is how stunning she looked on her Wedding Day:

4- Multi-colored Hijab Wedding Dress ( Ballgown Style with non-traditional colors)

 

Our 4th gown in the selection today is a beautiful two-toned dress that we have created for our North Carolina bride, Raya. Raya is gorgeous,inside-out! We just cannot wait for her to celebrate her Wedding day to show you how Royal she will look like! She wanted a color different than ivory/white for her dress, so we created her own in Champagne, adding some Bling on the lace and made it with a High Collar since this is something she loves!

 

 

We hope this round up of 4 of our most beautiful Hijab Wedding Dresses will be very helpful to see how gorgeous Hijab Wedding Dresses can be if they are created with the Hijabi Bride in mind. Do you know a bride-to-be who wears the Hijab, and is unable to find her perfect Wedding Dress? Tell her about Brides & Tailor. You will truly make her day!:)

No matter where you live in the US or Worldwide, we will be working with you one-to-one to make sure this will be an experience you will cherish forever! You can send us any inspirational photos, and we will work with you to bring your vision into life!

The Trend of Black Wedding Dresses has been becoming more trendy in the past few years. Many people used to sigh and wonder how a bride would wear a Black Wedding Dress for her Big Day, but this is in fact becoming more common those days!

Since the Victorian era, white has been the traditional color of choice for brides to wear on their special day. But, while white appears classic and lovely, it isn’t a bride’s only option. For those who are willing to follow their own personality and fashion style in particular, black makes a gorgeous selection for a wedding gown.

Dark, decadent, elegant, and chic, this inky hue is ideal for fashion-forward brides. It can be an all Black Wedding Dress, a Black Bridal Gown mixed with another color, or a Black Gown with Black Beadings to make it less Gothic. So, if you’re looking to create a bold statement on your big day, why not consider this shade? Here, we’ve rounded up a selection of 9 of the most stunning black wedding dresses we have created for our brides for you to view. But first, check out this lovely collage for these gowns before scrolling down!

 

1- Black Lace Wedding Dresses:

One of the most beautiful artistic touches you can have for your wedding dress, is to have Black Lace Added to it. Lace gives the gown such elegance. It doesn’t have to be all covered up in Lace. It can have Lace all over, or lace only in the Bodice Area. Here is an examples of a gown that we have done with lace all the way down with a removable train for our Connecticut bride Samantha.

 

 

 

 

2- Black and Blush/Colored Mermaid Wedding Dresses with Lace 

We also love adding a hint of color to Black to give it a more lively look. Check out this Black and Blush gown we have created for our bride Emily from Alabama. The combination of colors created a soft look which doesn’t look as Gothic-y as plain Black Dresses.

3- Black & White Mermaid Wedding Dresses

If you’re contemplating to wear a black wedding dress, but aren’t sure about completely abandoning the classic white, why not embrace both shades? With a mixture of black and white, you can maintain a sense of tradition while also showcasing your unique style.This beautiful Black and White Wedding Dress was created based on what our Michigander’s bride Julie had in mind. Beadings were added to make sure the dress looks like a Wedding Dress, and the beautiful flowing skirt also created a beautiful contrast with the rest of the gown.

4- Black and White Vintage or Medieval Wedding Dresses

Vintage Fashion is also a style we truly love! Medieval Wedding Dresses are romantic, timeless and can have different traditional or modern styles. They typically consist of a Corseted Bodice and a Flowing Skirt. It is soft,elegant and timeless. Our 4th dress here was created for our Michigander bride Renee and it included a removable jacket so she can easily have 2 different looks on her Wedding Day.

 

 

 

5- Plain Gothic Ballgown Wedding Dress

A black wedding dress makes a particularly perfect option for brides who love a gothic look. While most black dresses will project a slight gothic aesthetic, specific styles do embrace the beautifully dark style more intensely. Adding a black veil and opting for dark makeup can also help achieve an entire gothic appearance. Our 5th dress here was created for our Minnesota bride Tori and she looked gorgeous in it!

 

 

6-Black Ballgown With Beadings and Lace

Our 6th dress here is a black ballgown which combines lace and beadings on top of it to make it less than a purely Gothic Wedding Dress. This gown has been featured on Wedding Day Magazine in March 2020. It is so beautiful and elegant. The long train also creates a Fairytale Like vibe! Needless to say, the model who wore it (Katelynn) looked gorgeous!

 

 

7-Black Ballgowns with Full Beading on the Bodice

Black Ballgowns can also include beading all over the bodice to create some beautiful contrast and make it appear less Gothic-y than it would be without them. Check out this beautiful gown we have created for our Ohio bride Roszhawn. Doesn’t she look gorgeous?!

8-Black Mermaid Wedding Dress with Lace and Beading

Black Mermaid Wedding Dresses are so elegant and lovely. Adding Beading to the lace makes the dress pop! This is a beautiful gown that was made to our Michigander bride Jamellia.

 

 

9-Black and Red Wedding Dresses

Although not for the faint of heart, a black and red wedding gown can make a superb choice. By combining two bold hues, a red and black dress would be striking and unforgettable on your special day. Check out our gown worn by beautiful Zoe from Michigan .

We truly hope you have enjoyed scrolling through this blog, and that all of our top 9 Black Wedding Dresses have made you see for yourself why Black Wedding Dresses are getting really trendy!

Remember that you can just send us your inspirational photos and we’ll create your dream gown,anywhere in the US!

If you’ve become accustomed to traditional weddings, you may think your only choice for wedding dress colors are the various shades of white or ivory. However, in recent years more and more brides have been moving away from white dresses and moving towards dresses in a variety of colors, including black!  If you’ve been thinking about wearing a black wedding dress, let one of our beautifully designed black wedding dresses inspire you!:)

Remember that Brides & Tailor is specialized in creating custom wedding dresses of all colors, not only Black! So whether you are looking for a custom black wedding dress, a totally gothic-y custom gothic dress or any other colors, we’ve got your back!

 

This beautiful Styled Shoot was recently featured on Wedding Day Magazine, one of the most prominent Wedding Day Magazines in the Midwest! It is the result of the efforts of state of the art Michigan Wedding Vendors who worked together to bring an artistic moodboard into reality.

 

The idea of an alternative black wedding dress came from myself- Manal from Brides and Tailor, and Brittany from Great Lakes Event Planning! We pictured a stunning black ball gown in a modern and lighter colored venue. The choice of Gold/Black color tones turned out to be just gorgeous! All the elements complemented each other so nicely and beautifully.

 

 

 

The Wedding Dress and veil were a showstopper! When I was working on the design of this gown, I wanted it to be in Black but not too Gothic-y. I wanted beading to be placed over the lace to give it some sort of a 3D effect, and beautiful volume to make it truly bridal. The final result turned out to be gorgeous, with hundreds of small pieces of beading added all over the gown from top to bottom. The veil also had the same design of the dress with lace and beadings to create a timeless look!

 

 

Brittney from Great Lakes Event Planning made it a breeze to work together on this shoot. Most of the people do not know how much of hard work it takes to produce this beautiful work of Art, and I must say this group of vendors were just OUTSTANDING. Lauren, our photographer, was amazing and focused on capturing even the tiniest of details. Her photos are so beautiful and airy! Douglas, our videographer, was also awesome to work with! He made sure all the videos taken reflected both behind the scenes footage and live videos from the actual shoot.

 

Our models were so great to work with too! The atmosphere was just so much fun! Katelynn’s makeup consisted of a beautiful smokey eye and bold red lipstick by Norma, and the hair was hairstyled into a beautiful classic up-do by Carleana! Bradley wore a black tux as well, so it was all a matchy-match!

 

 

The beautiful white,gold and green tones floral work by Plum Market was just so classy and elegant, and the stunning floral arch was created by the talented Joy who paints each one of these petals individually. This is honestly just the perfect backdrop to any bridal party! The stationary created by Lyndsay was so moody and edgy- I loved the calligraphy in there!

 

 

The venue for this shoot was chosen because of its bright and airy aesthetic. The Roostertail is honestly one of the most beautiful venues in Detroit!It is the perfect combination for indoor/outdoor weddings!  Paired with the moody colors of the bride’s dress, this contrast is a match made in heaven! The cake was exclusively made by Karlee, and its beautiful gold and black mix truly complemented the rest of the moodboard!

One of the most beautiful aspects of the table were the gorgeous black linen colors provided by Luxe Event Linen, rentals by event Source and Upstage Kzoo’s candleholders, golden glass cups without forgetting the statement peacock chair. Needless to say, Britt did an awesome job setting everything up and making sure it was all picture-perfect! Since we wanted to touch on a moody trend for this shoot, black cake, a black dress, black acrylic chairs and black velvet linens are ahead of the trend! Here are some extra photos captured from this lovely day. You will also be able to watch a video at the bottom,so make sure you don’t miss a thing!

As a final note, To all brides all over the US and not only in Michigan I say: Always remember that your wedding dress should reflect your personality. If you cannot find a custom black wedding dress that truly matches your personality, count on Brides & Tailor to  create your dream bridal gown. We promise this will be an unforgettable experience! ”  – Manal

Leap Year comes but once every four years. And Leap Day, February 29, is not a national holiday anywhere. But that doesn’t stop the special day from being a highly coveted date for marrying couples to set their weddings on! This is exactly what Erin and Jamel decided to do- Having a Wedding as unique and special as their relationship!

Their Wedding took place at the beautiful Norfolk Botanical Garden in Virginia on a magical beautiful day! What I truly loved about Erin’s Wedding Day photos were the tons of smiles that were clearly shown on everyone’s face! Everyone had such an amazing time, and this is exactly what is so touching about weddings.It truly reflects the happiness and love all around!

Now let us talk about Erin’s Custom Wedding Dress! Erin had a 3-in-1 custom wedding dress designed by Brides & Tailor! It has a short skirt ( Which we won’t show you now 🙂 ), a long overlay ballgown skirt that can be easily worn above it , a removable belt and a removable jacket. Best part yet? Her custom wedding dress had pockets! Pockets are so trendy for 2020/2021, and we will be providing all brides with the option of adding pockets to all of their wedding gowns.So so classy!

Erin’s makeup was so simple and elegant, with beautiful curls that reflected true elegance!

The groom’s tux also reflected elegance and what I loved the most was the first “look” . I won’t give any more details. I will let the pictures speak on their own:)

Who could’ve thought that our planned Styled Shoot was indeed STILL going to take place despite the Snow Storm Advisory Warning in Michigan in January 2020?  This Styled Shoot was published on Contemporary Weddings Magazine, and I’m so glad to finally be able to share some of the photos from this magical day on our website!

We all drove in the Snow Blizzard and Weather Advisory on January 18th,2020 because we had this beautiful Concept in mind. We wanted to show potential brides how gorgeous it is to have Winter-themed photos! Michigan is known for its long winter months and snowy days, but we’re not going to just wait for Spring and Summer to have a shoot. A Bride is beautiful in any season!:)

The colors for the shoot were a mix of Blue, Gold, Burgundy and White. They just mixed up so beautifully and contrasted with the snow all around.

Brides & Tailor created a special custom faux fur piece in Burgundy to match the overall theme and to contrast beautifully with the snow and the wedding dress. The Custom Wedding Dress by Brides & Tailor  was a very simple yet elegant gown. It features lace on the bodice, intricate lace detailing at the back, and a flowy soft tulle skirt for the skirt. We are always trying to showcase different gown styles that a variety of brides would love! Needless to say, the bride looked awesome in it!

One of my favorite parts about this shoot were the 2 main characters – The bride and the Groom 🙂 Rebecca and Beau are husband and wife, and we cannot deny that the chemistry between those 2 was just AMAZING. They seriously made the photographer’s and the videographer’s work effortless! They were goofy, spontaneous and full of life!

For the table, a navy velvet tablecloth was used, and beautiful golf flatware, gold chargers and candle holders were used. The chairs also had golden accents and it was the perfect addition.  Our planners Britt and Megan created the perfect setup and added some candles  in just a few minutes. Planners really do magic:) The florist created beautiful pops of burgundy color floral work mixed with greenery,white and earthy colors. The flowers were out of this world! One of the things I also loved the most was the beautiful sofa which was perfect to add some warmth and coziness to the outside cold. The small vintage table used for the cake and the flowers was also so cute! Did you know that it was pre-purposed from a sewing machine? It looked absolutely gorgeous with the setting! 🙂

The cake was also an outstanding part of the shoot. Our awesome cake artist Mackenzie created an edible cake which has beautifully-blended navy blue and gold colors. It was the perfect cake for the perfect theme!

The makeup of the bride was so trendy and the bold lipstick color really made the lips stand out. The hairstylist created an elegant braid which really suited Rebecca’s face. For the stationary, Elisa created beautiful stationary with printed florals which had burgundy, blue and earthy colors.

All of this shoot would have never been possible without the efforts of these vendors and without 2 awesome vendors who were able to make the shoot streamed to all the audience in pictures. Kai Davis is an amazing photographer who is capable of capturing images with such great detail and color. Her photography is so airy and real that it really blows my mind away. Our videographer,Mas Media, is also such a talented videographer. Throughout the shoot, he was running around with his video equipment and his drone,and needless to say, his video speaks for itself. I literally teared up when I watched it. So so sweet to see what a work of art he has created.

I know I have probably written so much about this shoot already, but it is indeed one of my most memorable ones! Now all you need to do is sit back and enjoy these photos and video from this magical day!

One of the most gorgeous Dress ideas we had for 2019 was the beautiful contrasting combination of White and Black in creating This Black and White Wedding Dress for our bride, Julie. If you are a bride who’s looking for a Black Wedding Dress but everyone around you is hoping to see you in traditional white and ivory colors, Black and White Wedding Dress Ideas are the next big thing!

When Julie first booked an appointment with Brides & Tailor, she explained that she wanted a unique custom wedding dress which would truly be a statement dress. She gave us all her ideas, and together we were able to suggest creating a mermaid wedding dress which has white lining underneath, and black lace combined with black beading to give the dress a unique look without it looking too filled with colors. The end result was simply stunning! We are more than happy to share with you some of Julie’s Wedding Day Photos from Summer 2019! We have received countless of messages about this particular custom black and white wedding dress, so we were waiting for the perfect time to showcase it to you:)

What I loved the most about Julie’s Wedding Day were the colors! The bridesmaids/groomsmen wore Steel Grey Dresses and suits, while the maid of honor and matron of honor wore Black. The cake also looked so elegant with Black/White accents and even those cupcakes matched! The thing that was even more amazing is that it’s so clear that the bride and groom and everyone else were just having a blast! Having a Wedding can be so stressful sometimes, but it’s the fun,crazy memories that make it so worth it 🙂

So, are you ready to impress your wedding guests with a unique black and white wedding dress like this ? If Mermaid Wedding Dresses aren’t suitable for your body type, there are many more wedding dresses styles that can be done  in white and black! Dare to look different on your Big Day! Don’t forget to add some black and white colors to your Wedding Decor and other aspects of your wedding like the cake, flowers,tables to make sure all colors look great together!

Ladies and gentlemen, check out these amazing photos from Mr and Mrs Waddington’s Wedding Day!

Valentine’s Day is the one time of year you’ll see loud proclamations of love across social media, in the glances exchanged at dining tables, and in the eyes of a man walking home from work with a giant bouquet of roses for his sweetheart.  And so, with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we wanted to feature one of our brides’ beautiful wedding which wasn’t actually on Valentine’s Day, but the colors do make us feel that it actually was! 🙂

 

When Roszhawn first contacted Brides & Tailor for a custom wedding dress design, she knew she wanted a timeless, statement ballgown. She also wanted to have beadings all over the bodice, and we suggested having see-through tulle that matched her skin tone color so the sleeves look illusional on her body. The end result was just out of this world! We truly appreciate it when brides make a long drive to get to us.We can ship our gowns to all states but meeting our brides is also something I look forward to! Roszhawn made the drive from Cincinnati to Michigan and needless to say, this was a memorable experience she will never forget! When you look at these photos below, you’ll know why- Her gown was a STATEMENT one!

 

On her wedding day, the colors were just so pretty! The groom wore a Black Tuxedo. The bride’s hairstyle looked very classy and elegant, and the best part about the makeup was the bold red lipstick color.They chose Black and Red for the bridesmaids and groomsmens’ outfits, and the beautiful contrast definitely reminded me of Valentine’s Day in the middle of October:) The cake also matched with beautiful roses and black accents on it. The bridal bouquet was white in addition to all the bridesmaids’ bouquets. In brief, even though the Wedding Dress was black and the entire theme was Red and Black, it wasn’t too Gothic-y! It was a mix of classiness, vibrancy and elegance.

 

So for all the brides planning to get married on Valentine’s day, out of all of the cheese romantic lovely days to get married on, Valentine’s Day seems like a pretty good choice. Plus you’ll never forget your wedding anniversary!:) Check out some lovely photos from Our Bride’s Wedding Day Below!

If you have been following Brides & Tailor for a while, you have probably noticed that we absolutely love collaborating with other professionals in the Metro Detroit Area to come with awesome Styled Shoot ideas! 

Living in Michigan means having one of the best Fall Vibes among all other US States! We chose to have a partly outdoor/partly indoor shoot for this particular Michigan’s Autumn Styled Shoot, and the colors which were incorporated included various tones of Red, Champagne and Brown. The color choice turned out to be amazing because these Warm, Earthy tones also matched the gorgeous venue which was chosen for this shoot. 

Our bride and groom are actually Husband and Wife! 🙂 I find it so amazing that they love to travel and participate in various shoot sessions and that they’re always together! It is so clear that love was all around! 

The Bridal Gown we used for this shoot is a beautiful Champagne dress with lace all over the bodice with see-through parts also peeking through it . The tulle skirt is a very soft type of tulle which gives such a romantic flow.It is so light and airy was indeed so comfy to wear! The main highlight of this gown is definitely its back! The low back includes floral lace all over the edges to also give a true Bridal statement! Brides & Tailor complimented this look with a custom Bridal Veil in a matching Champagne color. 

The table setup, cake, floral work, accents and the overall vibe all looked in harmony with the bridesmaids gowns and the bridal gown. The jewelry pieces complimented the dresses and the bridesmaids and just looked amazing. The stationary used and the way the rings were arranged also looked so gorgeous! Is it just me or can I also smell Michigan’s famous Pumpkin Spice Scent just by looking at these photos? 

This was such an amazing shoot, and we cannot wait to share with you more! We’re always trying to help brides in choosing colors that blend beautifully for their Wedding Day, and I am pretty sure these photos will blow your mind away! Scroll down and enjoy!:)

It’s 2019 and yes! Black Wedding Dresses are a huge hit those days! It’s honestly so amazing to see all of those different unique colors popping up for Wedding Dresses-from pink, champagne to darker hues like black, it seems that Wedding Color Trends are becoming more unique day after day!

Our gorgeous Samantha reached out to us many months before her Wedding! She was looking for a Black Wedding Dress but wanted to incorporate another shade with it. So we worked together and decided to have an off shoulder gown with Black Sleeves and an inner champagne satin lining. ( She later made the sleeves removable and oh wow! They looked stunning!) .

She also wanted a train but didn’t want to be stuck with it for the whole day, so we created a lovely train with black lace applique all over. It gave her an eye-catching look without it being too heavy!

Her Wedding Colors were so beautiful. She used a mix of Burgundy, shades of green and white to beautifully create contrast with her dress. She even took care of the florals herself!

Take a look at some of her gorgeous Wedding Day Photos! It was a truly splendid Gothic Wedding!

Looking for a Bridal Salon that sells Modest Wedding Dresses or Hijab Wedding Dresses can be very hard sometimes, especially when you’re living in the US. While many of the boutiques do carry long sleeve wedding dresses, the trick is finding a place that has High Necklines to suit a modest or a Hijabi bride. Our bride Razan has done just that. She visited a couple of bridal boutiques in Cincinnati,Ohio , but still couldn’t find everything she wanted about the dress. Some boutiques do offer to add sleeves on existing gowns, or a long sleeve snap on body suit that would fit under the bridal gown, but this is not something that appeals to all brides.

Razan says she came to learn about Brides & Tailor through Google! And there she was! After scheduling an appointment to visit our Bridal Salon in Michigan and driving for 3.5 hours, Razan felt so relieved despite the road trip. A few weeks after our initial appointment with her, the final day of the final fitting has arrived.And this dress was everything! Seeing how beautifully it fit her, and how she truly looked like a princess made our day!

However, the part that truly made our day, was seeing those gorgeous photos that she’s shared from her Wedding Day in Ohio! We’d love to share some of the Magic from that day with you! Scroll down and enjoy!:)   Congratulations Razan on behalf of  all of Brides & Tailor’s Design/Tailoring team!

Brides & Tailor’s Pink/Coral Bridal Shoot took place on May 19th,2019 at Fox Hills Golf Club and Banquet Center in Plymouth,Michigan. Many professionals from the Detroit Metro Area have worked so hard to make this photoshoot successful!

The Special Bridal Gown was Sketched, Designed and Tailored by Brides & Tailor. It features gorgeous french lace details with hand-beading on top to give a soft yet elegant look. The skirt has subtle bling which lightens up at night!

The colors that we wanted for this styled shoot were varying degrees of pink and coral.After all, living coral is one of the major hit colors of 2019, and the mix of pink and coral just makes the atmosphere fully vibrant.

From the cake,stationary, bouquet, table centerpieces/florals, floral arch and even the linen, the colors were beautifully mixed together to create the colorful vibe we wanted.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy these lovely photos! All credits are mentioned at the bottom of this post.

For most of the brides, the idea of a Wedding Dress is almost correlated to a White or Ivory Wedding Gown. In the recent years, however, we’ve seen a rise in the number of brides who are choosing to go to a totally different route! Alternative Wedding Dresses can be of any color you can think of. Black, Red, Pink, Coral or any color combination. We receive inspirational photos which are non-traditional on a daily basis, and we just love those vibes! This is why we decided to design/tailor a Black/Red Wedding Dress which combines the color vibes with beautiful lace. The Red/Black Wedding Dress consists of Beautiful Layers of Red Tulle, a Red Satin Bodice with beautifully placed Black Lace on top.

We had a photoshoot with a lovely model outdoors in Michigan, and the result was a beautiful Styled Shoot with a Dress that looked so pretty!  Check out all of these lovely photos and the names of the photographers and vendors who were part of this!

Brides & Tailor’s Annual Bridal Photoshoot took place on May 19th,2019 at Fox Hills Golf Club and Banquet Center in Plymouth,Michigan. Many professionals from the Detroit Metro Area have worked so hard to make this photoshoot successful! 
The Special Bridal Gown was Sketched, Designed and Tailored by Brides & Tailor. It features gorgeous french lace details with hand-beading on top to give a soft yet elegant look. The skirt has subtle bling which lightens up at night! 
At The day of the photo shoot , there was a tornado warning in effect for many parts of Michigan! Living in Michigan basically means that everyone is so used to the changing weather which happens on an hourly basis, so we decided to continue with it. By 12:30 pm, the wind was blowing so strong that the candleholders starting falling down and breaking. Honestly-speaking, we started kind of freaking out at this point. Soon, rain started pouring, but it was so amazing that none of the participating vendors wanted to give up or reschedule.In fact, we all agreed that the rain will be making the photo shoot unique! The model was there, right under the Summerhouse, with rain flowing from all sides, and the wind blowing her skirt, but she still shined through like a diamond! After some great photos and videos outdoors, we rushed to take some more indoors, and they were as equally amazing! 
So take a deep breath, and watch this short video which summarizes the beauty that was all around that day!

If you’re a Hijabi Bride, it might be really hard to find the perfect Hijabi Wedding Dress that looks stylish while being modest at the same time. So many times, a bride visits local boutiques, and realizes that the only dresses she loves are the ones that are strapless and need an inner shirt so she can wear it.

At Brides & Tailor, we want you to choose something that you truly love! We can create a modest bridal gown with incorporated long sleeves and a high neckline to make sure that all the points you’re looking for are there,without having to wear anything else!

Take a look at this beautiful Hijabi Wedding Dress that we’ve tailored to our beautiful bride Razan from Cincinnati,Ohio.

It’s true that it takes a very daring bride to wear a Black Wedding Dress for her Wedding Day instead of the traditional white/ ivory wedding gowns. At Brides & Tailor, we’re always so happy to receive custom bridal gowns from brides who love to be unique. 

 

Whether it’s a black Wedding Dress to match a Gothic Wedding Theme, or a pink wedding dress for the perfect ethereal wedding colors, we are always here to make sure our brides get the best experience of their lives. 

 

Take a look at this beautiful black wedding dress ( images are below) we’ve designed for our beautiful bride Samantha from Connecticut, USA! It features a removable long tail with beautiful floral patterns, in addition to a removable belt that can also be removed. It has off shoulders and a combination of a Mermaid/ ALine silhouette to give her the sexiest silhouette.

Great question and we’ll gladly tell you why! 🙂 

First of all, Brides & Tailor’s costs of creating a wedding dress are just the same as any of the great quality bridal salons. We use high quality material including satin, tulle, chiffon, lace, and all kinds of beadings and we never use glue, unlike many other places which do! So how do we save you the extra cost?

We have no inventory operational costs since we do not aim to sell our sample gowns, we have zero intermediary costs since we tailor the gown and deliver it straight to you, no employees extensive costs since we do not have a regular showroom which is operational throughout the day, less electricity bills and less operational and utility costs. Many bridal salons charge you 2 or three times our price because they need to cover the extra expenses they incur. We don’t, thus you save!:)

What sets us apart is that we can work around with any colors and styles that you have in mind. Our color charts include 100 colors that you can choose. So whether you loved the top part of one dress with the bottom of another wedding gown, or have a full sketch of an inspirational bridal gown picture, we will gladly tailor it for you.

We are always the choice for brides who have already visited countless of bridal salons, but still feel that they hadn’t found the dress that ticks all the criteria they have in mind!

Make sure you’re always up-to-date with our new discount announcements, booking availability and styled shoots by following us on Instagram and Facebook!

Now that you got engaged and have started the search for the perfect dream wedding dress, you should definitely be prepared for the big question:

Why are boutique wedding dresses this expensive?

 

It’s obvious that wedding dress businesses exploit the idea of getting married ( hopefully once !) to make a bride feel okay about buying a bridal gown that retails for thousands of dollars.  Brides & Tailor is the pioneer in reversing this idea since 2010. It all started when the owner realized that no…there should be a way to give those brides a big happy smile as the walk down the aisle without getting bankrupt. 

 

So what makes the local wedding dresses this expensive? Read all those markups that are added by local boutiques to make their businesses profitable.

We know how hard it is for Hijabi bride-to-be’s to find their perfect Hijab wedding dress sometimes, so in those few lines, Brides & Tailor will give you a few tips that you have to keep in mind before picking your wedding dress.

1. Make sure that you know your body shape.

In order to wear a wedding dress that looks flattering and comfortable, make sure you know your exact body shape.  Our bridal advisor offers free advice on what suits you best in our Michigan Showroom, and you can even request help online. We provide this as a complementary service because we want you to look and feel your best!

2.Don’t pick very heavy wedding dress material.

Since you will be wearing a Hijab on your wedding day, you need to make sure that your overall wedding dress doesn’t restrict your movement or make you feel uncomfortable. Choose designs that are not too heavy and that are breathable. You will also need to be able to move your arms freely while moving since the sleeves will be long, so make sure you pick the most comfortable style possible.

3.Plan your Hijab look in advance.

One of the most important aspects of your Hijab Wedding Dress is the Hijab itself. Make sure that you know what Hijab style is suitable for your face, and if possible, try to get help from a Hijab Stylist who will be able to use your bridal veil to wrap it in a very flattering style that goes well along your face shape and the bridal look. Make sure you check our Brides & Tailor’s Hijab Look below for inspiration! You can even use bridal turbans to create a very elegant look

4.Make sure you know that you’ve got options.

Don’t opt for any design and just settle down for any wedding dress with an add-in jacket. Jackets usually give Hijabi Brides a bulky look. With Brides & Tailor, you can pick any bridal dress design, ask us to add long sleeves and to cover the neckline. There is nothing easier than our custom made wedding dresses.

Take a look at one of our beautiful Hijabi Models in our Hijab Wedding Dress.
