Punk Rock Bride

Stephanie's Favorite: the Elizabeth

I love meeting entrepreneurs in the creative field and recently I had the pleasure of meeting Stephanie Ward, the designer of Punk Rock Bride. Stephanie graduated from RISD and then worked for Sigrid Olsen.

After seeing her collection at her studio, I can see why these dresses are so appealing. They offer something different for a bride who doesn’t want a princess gown.  The fabric, shapes and designs of these gowns make them ideal for destination brides or brides getting married outside in the heat. When I picked up some of the dresses, they were light weight compared to many dress I’ve held, which makes them very easy to carry on a plane. Stephanie uses a mix of fabrics, including cotton silk on the Raina dress.

The dresses are made locally in Virginia and are reasonably priced for such a unique collection between $2700-$4000. It takes her about 3-4 months to make your dress, followed by the usual fittings.

Punk Rock Bride style Caroline

My favorite: the Caroline from the 2008 Collection. The detailing in the bodice makes this dress special.

Punk Rock Bride style Becky

Becky from new 2009 Collection. A two-piece wedding dress -- that silk organza beaded belt is stunning!

Happy dress shopping! Vicky
