Your wedding gown is one of the most sentimental, personal and emotional purchases of your life! You'll want to find a dress that flaunts your best assets and is true to YOU. Trends come and go, but your personal style is timeless. All too often we have brides who are trying to achieve a look that they've seen in magazines or a celebrity inspired style. When they slip into those dresses they don't feel themselves and are almost always disappointed. That is when we have to take a step back and really find out their own personal wedding style.
Here's a few tips to help you find your own personal wedding dress style!
1. Take a look at your current wardrobe! You'll notice a repeating style, fabric or neckline. Do you have a lot of lace skirts or shirts? Are strapless a-line dresses your go to for a Sunday out with the girls? Is your closet filled with high necklines? Take a few pointers from yourself and let your personal style translate to your wedding style!
2. The Knot has an extensive wedding dress search engine that we always recommend to our brides! Find a few designers that you really enjoy and save your favorite dresses. When you come into the boutique, show your stylist pictures of your favorites. We'll work our hardest to help you find your dream dress!
3. Keep your venue in mind. If you're having a church ceremony, we suggest selecting a style that covers up and isn't too 'busty'. If your venue is outdoors in the summer, stay away from long sleeves! If your venue is in a barn or has a rustic style, lace is the way to go! You'll want to make sure your wedding dress fits the venue & the aesthetic of your wedding day!
