The rainbow ribbon veil! The rainbow ribbon-flower bouquet! The RAINBOW EVERYTHING! Of course, it should surprise no-one that Anya runs a website called RainbowHairColor.com.

If you want one like this, you'd need to have it made for you. Click here for our list of custom dressmakers who specialize in stuff like this. (I think Wedding Dress Fantasy could rock this style especially hard.) Here's what Anya said about having the dress made for her: In answer to the question about how the dress was made: it was custom-made for me. I had a friend who is a burlesque dancer and she recommended her friend who is a wedding dress maker by day and a burlesque costume maker by night! We met up and when I said "rainbow dress," she was not so sure. But after showing her my drawings of what i had in mind and talking my ideas through she was sold and totally pumped about it! She made the it all from scratch, and had a hard time finding all the colours of netting i wanted. But she blew me way with the result! The body was all boned and a proper corset (no bra needed!) and the back laced up. The inside was all silk so not scratchiness from the netting. When we first put the rainbow colours against the dress we decided that it very bright and didn't blend in with the dress to well and so came up with the idea of using a white piece over netting it to tone the colours down and help it blend into the rest of the dress better. I think that's what really helped to pull the colours together! And yes the veil is simply ribbons tied to a slide comb. Simple and easy!
