As we get brides in the shop, we always ask when they are getting married and if they have selected a venue yet. About half of the brides have an idea of a venue, but others are waiting until they select their dress to ‘set the tone’.
The fun thing about current fashion trends is that anything goes! If a bride selects a fabulous all lace fit and flair gown it could be worn for an outdoor rustic or ‘shabby chic’ wedding or it could be dressed up with a tiara and worn in an formal candlelight ceremony. If an flowing organza sheath is selected, a destination beach wedding would be great or a beautiful ceremony in a Country Club would work as well.
We’ve had brides who want to wear cowboy boots or converse, barefoot or Jimmy Choos. The point is, anything goes. Don’t worry about following the rules or being judged by those who attend, it’s YOUR day. Make it something that represents you and your fiance’s life together. Pick a gown that you LOVE, that makes you feel special, beautiful, and confident. If you want to wear to wear a taffeta gown with a 9 foot train on the beach, go for it!!!! Just have FUN!
