How can you get two different (and personalized) looks with just one dress? With Anomalie, of course, and not those other wedding dress boutiques! When you work with us to design your own dress, we allow you to add accessories, like capes and overskirts that take you from the aisle to the party without changing out of your gown, giving you versatility and a fun way to change things up! Here are five ways to switch up your wedding day look.

The Overskirt

Designed to be taken off post-ceremony, an overskirt transforms your look by removing a dramatic overlay to reveal a shorter or different gown that allows you to dance and move more freely.

Lace Topper

This design detail lends a beautiful vintage feel to your wedding day look. The best part? Unlike most wedding gown boutiques, Anomalie offers a variety of lace styles, so you can pick the one that’s perfect for you.

Detachable and Watteau Trains

Attaching at the top of neckline on the back of the dress, this style of train is functional, but, oh, so ethereal and dreamy!

Detachable Straps and Sleeves

A touch of modesty for the ceremony, straps and sleeves that detach allow you to raise your arms in celebration at the after-party! Plus, with Anomalie, you can personalize the fabric, beading, and even color of your sleeves. Bride Kristen Above chose to add floor length, off-the-shoulder sleeves.

Bridal capes are the perfect accessory for the bride needing more modesty or something warm for cold shoulders. An Anomalie stylist can help you customize this trendy addition to include the same lace or beading to match your gown.
