Bridal Gown Makeover Adding Some Gems To My Wedding Dress

Beach Wedding Dress
My story is very long. We wanted to do a beach wedding but we decided to get married in Dec. How can I glam my beach wedding dress up a little?
That's a loaded question. The reason I say that is because a lot depends on the formality and location of your wedding.
For instance, if your wedding is informal and you just want to add a little sparkle to your dress... you can add sequence and clear or iridescent seed pearls or beads to the gown. On your gown I would suggest you highlight the floral print areas with the gems. You can either hand sew them on or glue them using a beading glue that dries soft and crystal clear.
But if you are now having a formal wedding in a formal setting... then adding beading and gems will not makeover the dress enough to be appropriate for that type of wedding. It will still look beachy, but with bling, if you get what I'm saying. If this situation sounds like you I would strongly suggest that you get another wedding gown.
Plus there is another thing you need to think about. When an informal wedding gown is used for a formal wedding, you run the risk of your wedding party and guest out dressing you! Essentially they can upstage you at your own wedding and I imagine that this is not something you want to happen.
So to recap... if the formality of your wedding is informal you can glam up your dress. But if the reason you want to glam up your gown is because you are now switching to a more formal setting... I suggest that you choose another dress since the floral print keeps the gown informal.
Thanks for asking the question.
