Choosing A Style For Your Wedding Dress

Posted on: 18 February 2016

Your wedding will be a day that you look back on for years to come. Choosing your dress will be a big part of  setting the tone for your wedding. You have a lot of options, and designers come out with new options every year. Sometimes your best bet is to look into the new styles and choose one that works for you. 

Something Blue

Many brides follow the tradition of gathering certain items to bring them success in their wedding. One of these required items in the recipe for success is "something blue." For a modern twist on an old tradition, what if the "something blue" was your wedding dress?

Shoulder Streamers

Another chic look is a wedding dress with shoulder streamers. For anyone not in the know, a shoulder streamer is a piece of fabric that hangs down off of the shoulder. The streamer is typically made out of a light material like lace. Most dresses will have a streamer on just one shoulder. 

Dresses with Accessories

While a one-piece dress is the norm, there may be those who want flexibility. Some designers will offer dresses that come with a sweater, jacket, or pants. This allows you to use the same dress in more than one location if needs be. For example, if you have your wedding during the day, you might not need any sort of sweater or shawl. However, when you go to your reception in the evening, having a sweater might be just what you need. 

A Convertible Dress

If you want a traditional look for your wedding but want something that will allow you dance and let loose for your reception, you can find one that you can use for both occasions. All it takes is one quick conversion to change your traditional wedding dress to a party dress. 

Trying to find a wedding dress can be tricky. When you choose one, you need to look at what options you have for dresses. You also need to consider your budget. Trying to find one dress for your wedding and another for your reception may not be an option for you. While some people might want the newest style, you might not feel like you can pull it off. At the very least, learning what your options are is the best way to make a choice that you can live with for decades to come. Go to websites like for more information.
