Design Your Own Wedding Gown with Karen Willis Holmes

We have long been fans of Karen Willis Holmes, designer of gorgeous wedding gowns suited especially for brides with a modern, sophisticated sense of style. And today, we’ve fallen even more in love with them. Why? Because they have just launched their first-ever Design Your Gown collection.

Here’s how it works: you can choose from 9 bodice options and 9 skirt options, mixing and matching to create EXACTLY the look that you want. With nearly 100 different combinations, brides are truly spoiled for choice. From strapless, boat neckline and v-necklines, to fitted, full and flirty skirts wedding dress shopping just got a whole lot more fun.

Pieces can be kept separate or sewn together as a finished wedding gown. The collection is made to order (to standard sizes) in their workroom in Sydney, Australia. Selected pieces are in each of their boutiques, so contact to ask about your favorite combinations.


Once Wed was launched in March 2008 to meet a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses. Within a short time, the company had developed into an online wedding publication and resource to provide newly-engaged brides with inspiration and tools to plan their dream wedding.
