You are unique, a one of a kind, and it’s the uniqueness of who you are, and your personality, that will leave an indelible mark on everything you choose to wear on your wedding day, from the dress to the accessories and even to the theme of the wedding.
It’s a very special day, created and planned just for you, and it’s everything awesome about you that needs to shine through on the day. This is what is what will add to creating a beautiful thread that runs through the mood and theme you’ve chosen to set the tone on your wedding day.
While there are a few basic styles of wedding dresses, you are also always free to incorporate more than just one style into the dress, to make it a total expression of your individuality.
Here are a few different styles to choose from, in which you may find the one that speaks volumes about who you are:
A creative flair
Use different combinations of colour, textures and accessories to create a sense of the old and the new. This is definitely a great idea for the bride that will look gorgeous in the bohemian look, perfect to compliment her unique personality!
The only thing that limits how far you can go creatively with your wedding dress is the imagination!
A dramatic flair
If you’re adventurous enough to wear the latest style being touted on the international catwalks, this is where you have the opportunity to make a wow statement as you glide down the aisle.
Choosing a floating creation in deep red, royal blue or bright pink will definitely going make for a dramatic entrance, provided of course that you can carry it off.
A classic flair
This is all about femininity, wearing a classic wedding dress is the ultimate expression of the feminine look, combining sheer sophistication and timelessness to create perfection for a more formal wedding setting. Understated elegance speaks volumes for any bride choosing this style.
A contemporary flair
Here’s where the contemporary bride can have fun in mixing the dramatic style with a classic look, adding all the finishing touches that will highlight what happens when you combine the latest fashion with a completely modern look.
A natural flair
This is a style that in its simplicity is perfect for brides getting married in less formal settings, such as on the beach or on a mountain top. The dress will be a picture of simple lines placing the focus more on the neckline, accessories and hairstyle.
A romantic flair
Your wedding day is the ultimate in romance, and, the romantic style is perfect for the woman who wants to look like a princess on her wedding day!
Essentially, the dress will reflect everything that is soft and dreamy, enriched with stunning embellishments on luxurious fabrics that’ll make up the dress. Romance is also best expressed with the addition of beautiful sparkly details – watch out Swarovski here she comes!
A vintage flair
Here we go right back to the bygone days of a Victorian wedding dress. Lavish beads, crystals, lace and pearls will be the perfect finishing touches to a Victorian style wedding dress.
Of course, if you’re going this way, you’d need to add retro accessories that match the style of dress, and since this is a style that is now being played out on fashion runways, ideas are easy to source to complete the vintage look.
