Wedding Dress Tips and Trends

14 Dec

Every season, it seems there is a re-birth of fashion highlighted in the styles and trends of the iconic wedding dress. Though the event itself plays a major role in the styling of the day’s attire, no item of clothing has undergone the riggers and delights of the evolutionary process more than the wedding gown. 2013 is no different. This year we will see many less traditional styles, with brides opting for shorter, sassy cocktail style dresses. Bold colours will make their mark in accessories and trimmings. Also feather details, multi-layers and beautiful embellishments will help adorn dresses, setting each apart. Form fitting dress have been the style as of late, and again, there will be much opportunity for women to purvey their physique as they walk the aisle. With the plethora of options available to choose from, the task of selecting your dream dress can be daunting. Here are a few tips on how to choose “the one”…

  • Decide how much you want to spend. That way you’ll won’t loose your heart to a dress you can’t afford and the sales staff at your bridal shoppe can direct you to the dresses that fit within your budget.
  • Do your research. Look through magazines, visit wedding websites and plan a trip to your local wedding show to see what dresses, fabrics, silhouettes and styles appeal to you.
  • Keep in mind location. Getting married on the beach or under a gazebo doesn’t necessarily call for a cathedral style gown. So view the overall theme and feel of your wedding day as a good marker for the type of dress to look for and help narrow your search. Also the time of day and year will help you know what materials will best suit you.
  • Buy the dress you love. There are just some decisions you have to go with your heart. Everyone says “you know when it’s the dress for you” and that seems to be true for the majority. So if you haven’t found it, keep looking. Have confidence in your taste and what appeals to you.

Be sure to take advantage of the largest gathering of the region’s best and most reputable wedding exhibitors that can not only help you find the dress of your dreams, but also plan your entire wedding from start to finish!
