Whether you have had your dream dress in mind since you were a child playing dress up, or you haven’t even begun to think about your bridal style, wedding dress shopping is a totally unique experience. Here are a few things to keep in mind to ease your shopping and help you find a dress you are sure to love for years to come!
The material of your wedding dress can set the tone for your wedding. A heavy satin skirt may feel appropriate for a winter wedding, while flowy chiffon looks cool and effortless in the summer or for a beach wedding. You may want to choose silk for a formal affair, while tulle can feel whimsical and dreamy for a garden wedding.
Nothing complements a church wedding more than a long dramatic train. But what if you are having a more causal wedding? Choosing a shorter sweep train, or even having your dress hemmed floor length all the way around can make it easier to manage and feels less formal if you are planning something simple.
When looking at dress details, don’t forget to consider the back of the dress as well as the front. Most guests will see your back while you are standing at the altar during the ceremony, and as you are walking down the aisle. This is a great way to to add an unexpected twist to your wedding dress, and add a unique element to your gown that stands out from the rest.
Straps can make an impact on the overall vibe of your wedding. Whether you prefer spaghetti, cap, long sleeves or strapless, there are many sleeve options available for brides that can affect not only the look of the dress, but how comfortable you feel on your wedding day. A spaghetti strap or cap sleeve can give you more support and make you feel more secure if you are not comfortable wearing a strapless dress. Long sleeves provide extra coverage for more modest brides, but can be a bit warm to wear, so keep that in mind if you are getting married during warmer seasons.
An ivory or white wedding gown will always feel classic and timeless, but if you are looking to step away from tradition, considering a wedding dress with champagne or blush undertones could be the way to go. A hint of color can help a dress feel fresh, fun and whimsical.
Comfort is Key!
We are firm believers that no bride should have to sacrifice comfort for fashion. Keep in mind how different fabrics feel when you wear them. Which silhouettes make you feel the most comfortable and confident? Remember, no one ever looks as good as when they FEEL good, and on your wedding day you deserve to both look and feel like a rock star!
