Finding the Perfect Wedding Dress
Finding the perfect wedding dress is a combination of many different factors. Knowing your own personal style is one great place to start. You’ll also want to consider the season, your wedding venue, as well as any style or silhouette elements you wish to have.
Types of Wedding Dresses to Consider
Wedding dresses come in a range of styles from simple to ornate, short, to long and grand. It’s all a combination of what suits you and the venue and season of your wedding. Sleek lace slip dresses and simple styles can be great for informal weddings, like beach or backyard weddings. Grander more ornate ballgowns or heavily beaded styles can be wonderful for grand locations like cathedrals or grand hotels. Wedding dresses that are easy to travel with and can withstand a plane ride, may be a factor for a destination wedding!
Is it Safe to Order Wedding Dresses Online?
It used to be that finding a bridal gown was something you could only do with an appointment in a bridal boutique. While that still is the traditional way to find your wedding dress, you can also now look online.
Shops like BHLDN, Nordstrom, David’s Bridal and Etsy have great reputations and beautiful wedding gowns and for sale. (On Etsy, just read the reviews and check the return and guarantee policies!)
But, please be warned if you look for gowns on bargain sites, or copies of designer gowns, please beware (and read this list of warning signs!)
