As another week comes to a close, it’s that time once again for Friday Favorites! This week I’ve been completely crushing on Heidi Elnora and her Build a Bride collection. This collection is the perfect way to customize your gown to exactly what you’ve always imagined! There are so many options to choose from, you can guarantee you will look unique and feel incredible!

The best part of Heidi Elnora’s Build a Bride collection is that you can go as simple or as extravagant as your heart desires. Just take this dress, the Katie Grace, for example. This sweet and simple a-line wedding gown is gorgeous just on its own. Featuring a scoop neckline, a natural waist, and a low back, you will feel classically chic! Oh, and I can’t forget to mention the pockets, in this super sweet gathered skirt! And I mean, who doesn’t love pockets am I right? Who wouldn’t want to walk down the aisle with some snacks in their pocket? Okay, okay, maybe tissues and mints would be more appropriate… 

Now you might love this silhouette, but you might be thinking that this is missing something. This is where Heidi Elnora goes from great to absolutely fabulous. You can add so many different accessories to make it yours, which is exactly what we’ve done here. This belt is the Jeana Lee belt, which features hand-made organza petals, tulle, and rhinestone details. The pattern is large in the center of the belt and then gradually becomes smaller as it encompasses your waist. This belt is the perfect way to add a little sparkle and define your waist! 

Maybe you want a little more coverage up top? Well we’ve got that option as well! The Hillary Halter is just perfect and the best thing about it, is that you can wear it for the ceremony and then remove it for your reception! The high neckline of the halter gives a regal feel and the keyhole back adds just a little touch of playfulness and finishes right at a natural waist. Speaking of that waist, why not add a belt to flatter your figure even more? So, here comes the beauty bow! A classic favorite to add to any gown! This bow features a ruched waistband with long tails that be tied into a bow wherever your heart desires! I wore it in the back but you could always add it to the front or even the side!

To round out all the different ways you can wear the Katie Grace gown is the elegant Chloe Crop Top! This crop top features functioning covered buttons at the center back with lace that lies perfectly off the shoulder. This can add just that little extra something if you want to cover up but still feel modern and chic. And just like the Hillary Halter if you wanted to wear it for the ceremony and not the reception it can totally be done! 

Now I know customizing a gown can be a completely daunting task, so I hope I have inspired you to take a leap and check out Heidi Elnora! As always, if you’ve seen something you have to try on, go ahead and make an appointment. We would love to help you say yes to your Twirl dress!
