Want a leopard wedding dress? We understand. You want a beautiful wedding dress (otherwise you’d just be searching for a “leopard print dress”) but you also want to show your own personal style- you want both a nod to tradition but you also want to show your subversive side in the most beautiful possible way. And if you are shopping at Whirling Turban, you want a ELEGANT, artisanal, custom-fit, wildly flattering dress that will induce gasps when you make your entrance. THAT is what we do!
We’ve been working with “leopard brides” for years and we really, honestly have evolved this tiny little specialty so that we have the prettiest leopard wedding dresses on the planet! We have LOTS of choices in our leopard wedding dresses along with variations, personalized options, and customizations, all with our signature Whirling Turban “Move Star Fit” so that they not only express YOU but they flatter your unique figure, Leopard Bride.
Above, the leopard wedding dress that started it all. Most of our new styles start with a customer idea or request and the customer becomes the muse for the new design. This adorable UK bride found a rayon leopard fabric we had in our swatches, found a style she liked and decided on a burgundy contrast note, using out own custom hand-loomed burgundy fabric. We worked with her to get her into our very favorite petticoat on the market and so that just the right amount of petticoat would peek out. She also had a dashing groom, a great photographer and a picturesque location! The result was just enough tradition and a total expression of her personal style, along with a dress she could keep in her wardrobe and wear again many times!
We have added to our assortment of elegant leopard bridal fabric choices over the years. Below is a baby leopard combined with the most luminous burgundy silk. Whenever we a make this style dress with contrast at the bust, we send a strap in the matching leopard fabric AND a second halter strap in the contrast fabric. You can also wear it strapless. This way you get three different looks form one tea length wedding dress. You can also dress it up with the crinoline or dress it down by wearing it without the crinoline.
The contrast color at the bust gives you a chance to frame your face in a color that flatters your skin tone, or to pick up your wedding color in your dress. It;s also a chance to bring in the white element for a nod to that tradition. White can also be used in the crinoline and a birdcage veil. Then you can wear it for other occasions with a black crinoline, or strapless, or with the matching leopard halter strap.
Do we have a white leopard wedding dress? Yes, of course. Due to popular demand, we had our own leopard fabric custom-printed in a neutral on white for the bride who wants to wear white and still make her leopard wedding dress statement.
Now to the satins! We have a lovely selection of Satin Leopard Wedding Dresses!
These are tea length wedding dresses but they also come floor length, and they come as separates so you can wear the corselette top or the skirt later as beautiful additions to your wardrobe.
We customize the dress to flatter your unique figure, we custom fit you with the same techniques I use when I worked with Hollywood celebrities (Katy Perry, Halle Berry, Salma Hayek, Uma Thurman and Bette Midler, to name just a few) so you truly do get a movie star fit when you work with us!
