SJ Couture shares bridal style tips to fashion unique wedding looks

At one point in time, every girl has dreamed about what her fairytale wedding would look like, from the groom to the ring, and then, there’s the dress. But seldom are new brides willing to venture too far from the traditional wedding garb a.k.a white wedding gown, cathedral length veil, and typically kitschy bridesmaid dresses. But one designer is encouraging brides to write their own fairytale, starting with the dress. Featuring an array of designs that are far from the status quo. Jeanne Hankerson of SJ Couture fashions a luxurious line of wedding gowns made in New York from European silks. Since this month kicks off the peak wedding season, I recently caught up with Jeanne to get intel on how brides can create a wedding to remember. Here are her bridal style tips:

1. Wouldn’t it be lovely to wear your wedding ensemble again for another occasion? A 2-piece look makes it possible.
