The Dress that Keeps on Giving: The couture dress

By Taya Riabkova

If you’re going to splurge on a wedding dress, why not buy a couture dress or the most fabulous one you can afford that you can wear again, perhaps to a formal event? The trick is to stay away from dresses that scream “wedding”. Short or long, red or blue, lace or velvet, the choice is yours! A sleeveless blush pink silk dress with sequin embellishments, for example, is a stunning alternative to a traditional white wedding gown.
