Add colored buttons to your white dress #Fashion Advice#diy dress#steal-this-idea Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted May 1 2014) Guest post by SoMoWed I've been having regrets about getting a white (well, ivory) dress. Even if it's beautiful and vintage-y and I love it, it was just feeling too traditional-ish. So I've changed out the gazillion white buttons in the back for custom hot-pink ones that I found on Etsy! It was actually super-stressful since I couldn't find ANY pictures of dresses with colored buttons. (Pinterest and Google Images weren't any help.) So if anyone else is considering this swap, here is your photo inspiration! Guest post written by SoMoWed Thirty something Mom, I'm creative and fun loving. Strong and organized, I love anything DIY. I have dabbled in painting, music, some photography, sewing and I looooove to cook. http://tribe.offbeatbride.com/members/somowed PREVIOUS Giovanna & Jonathan's colorful gamers and costumes wedding NEXT I'm more than a bride-to-be Show/Hide comments [ 8 ] I just wanted to point out that the comparison pic is fake… I was despairing trying to find an image of colored buttons and photoshopped colored dots onto my original pic to get an idea! I can't do it up by myself, so I don't have an "after" picture on me! Reply This is very cute – but now I really want to see that you've swapped out the ribbon at the waist for the same colour? Or maybe matching shoes and bouquet details? Reply This is such a great idea!! And it looks fabulous in pink! I was the same way, I didn't like the idea of a white dress (I was hoping for pink!) but the dress I ended up loving is in ivory. I ordered it a few weeks ago and can't remember if there are buttons, but if there are I might just consider this idea 😛 Reply Regardless if your gown has buttons you can still use this idea to add color to the gown. Simply sew the buttons on the center back of your dress on top for the zipper placket. Reply I used this idea more than 20 years ago on the dress I made for my own wedding. The buttons I used were lavender foiled glass buttons from Czechoslovakia. Reply Love it! Reply What an awesome idea. First thing I thought after seeing this was "OMG can't wait to see someone doing RAINBOW BUTTONS!" Reply I was featured on OBB a while back, and my dress buttons were rainbowish! https://www.flickr.com/photos/104579896@N05/12697379244/ Reply Join the conversation Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.
