Creative Attire Ideas

One of my potential money saving ideas when it comes to my wedding ensemble is to take a fairly simple gown and dress it up, making the accessories the star. This weekend, I'm planning on checking out the Jenny Yoo "wedding alternatives" collection. An alternative to spending $3,000? I'll take it! Here are a few of the simple but cute designs in the collection, all for less than $1,200:

And how cute would one of these dresses look paired with one of these fantastic shrugs? The jackets below are from Etsy sellers Bonzie (left) and English Dept. (right)


  1. i really like #1, 2 & 4. (and you know how the bow detailing on #2 & 4 are wooing me.) l-o-v-e the english dept. shrug!

  2. Most of the Etsy shops take custom orders too, so you could get something made to match wedding colors. How great would a white dress with a marigold or green shrug look??
