The Altered Bride

There are a few things you won’t find at the Altered Bride. Among them are polyester gloves and bags so cheesy you instinctively hunt for the crackers, or beautiful high-quality trinkets so prohibitively priced that only the Miller sisters could afford them. Here you’ll find something between those two extremes: upscale, handmade accessories that are worth their price. Think crisp, cool, and feathery white veils (custom-made, if you don’t find what you want on the floor), tiaras that are both elegant and playful, and shoes that are comfortable but classy and stylish. It’s all enough to leave you in a truly altered state.
