15+ Brides With a Magic Touch Who Made Their Own Dream Wedding Dress

Every bride probably dreams of being unique on her wedding day, but it may not be that easy to capture your unique character in a dress from a store. For those who don’t want to be among the beauties who have to choose a ready-made dress, there’s an “simple” life hack — make your wedding dress yourself. And many women have done just that and evoked the most admiring glances from their invited guests.

We at Bright Side went through hundreds of wedding photos from brides who made their dresses on their own. It’s amazing to see women who have such different ideas about what they want to look like on one of the most important days of their lives.

“I made my own wedding dress. 79 ft of fabric, countless hours of work... It was worth it!”

“We both love fast food, so I made my wedding dress from burrito wrappings. Our love for each other is as cheesy as a quesadilla.”

“I fell in love with a dress, but it cost $2,200, so I decided to make the same one myself. I used scotch tape and a T-shirt to make a mannequin, and bought 26 ft of silk and lace.
Here’s the result.”

“I wanted my wedding dress to sparkle.”
