Many brides would agree that saying “yes” to a wedding dress is almost as important as saying “yes” to the groom. It should not only turn the girl into a princess but also reflect her character and individuality. Sometimes, a simple white dress is not enough.
We at Enlighten think that a non-standard approach to choosing a wedding dress helped these women look amazing. And in the bonus section, you’ll see Bella Swan’s dress that someone recreated and posted online.
