Are you ready for your fantasy wedding? Other fantasies, such as your childhood wish to date a cowboy or travel the world in an air balloon aside, we’d like to help make this one about your wedding come to life. Whether you decide to have an elaborate ceremony or want a small family affair, one thing is for sure, you want to look and feel your absolute best. The type of dress and jewelry you opt for will define the vibe of your wedding, so today we review a few options for you to choose from to make your day one to remember.
1. Intro to the Dress
It seems as if the days of costly and extremely elaborate weddings are behind us, and more and more people opt to tie the knot in an intimate ceremony surrounded by their inner circle. Some even follow in the footsteps of Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin who just went to the City Hall one day and got it over with without anyone even knowing. The kind of ceremony and reception you want to throw for your guests determines the kind of dress that you choose. Obviously, the fancier the venue, and more elaborate the dress, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a small wedding and still wear a dress of your dreams. Rule of thumb is to go for a timeless style so that 30 years from now when you look at your wedding photos you don’t go, ‘What the heck was I thinking’.
2. The Dress Cont’d
Make your appointment at more than one salon because they may seem to all carry the same brands, but that’s not really the case. They vary in price points too, and if you’re not sure how much you want to spend, definitely try dresses priced differently to see if the more expensive ones are worth the splurge. You might be surprised to find the perfect dress at half your planned budget, which is why it’s important to keep an open mind when it comes to the price. In terms of style, an A-line is your safest bet because it pretty much looks good on everyone, and it’s one of the most romantic styles. If you go for a mermaid style, be prepared to look sexy on your wedding day because this is the style that hugs your body in all the right places. A ball gown is every little girl’s dream come true, and if you’ve been planning your wedding since you were 9 years old, this is definitely the style for you.
3. A Few Honorable Mentions
Picking the groom is definitely the most important part of any wedding, but picking the dress is the most exciting! Once you’ve got the dress that makes you happy, you can take a deep breath and relax because everything else is just icing on the cake. If you want to be practical, pick a style of shoe that you’ll be able to wear after the wedding as well, and a pair of sexy, silver strappy sandals is one of the most versatile styles you can go for. As far as jewelry goes, if your dress is bejeweled you can keep accessories to a minimum. Also, there are lots of jewelry designers out there who have bridal collections, but there are also those who create timeless pieces that you can rock on more than one occasion. Keep in mind that you can always rent your jewelry and give it back a few days later, but essentially you should make this day about you, and all those little things that define your style and ultimately your personality.
