The Dos and Don'ts of Wedding Dress Style

 

 

So you finally decided on your wedding style and theme, but now you’re having trouble finding the perfect gown. Here at Anya Bridal, we’ve seen it all. Follow these basic dos and don’ts to make sure the most important dress you’ll ever wear in your life reflects your own personal twist!

DO

Relate your look to your wedding location. If it’s a traditional ceremony and formal reception, go for the classic, timeless gown style. Or if your wedding will be outdoors in the afternoon, opt for a strapless sheath dress that is made of light material. Marrying in the sand on an exotic island? A flirty tea-length gown is the ultimate nontraditional wedding dress that will tie into the theme perfectly.

DON’T

Don’t let your wedding style prevent your dreams of the perfect gown. If you have a specific style of gown you like but are worried it won’t correlate with your ceremony site, consider wearing a type of cover up for a more “demure” look. 

DO

Definitely think about wearing fun footwear! Getting married in the middle of June? Consider sporting flip-flops under your gown. Or, if you’re a southern cowgirl, try a pair of boots!

DON’T

Don’t dress more casual than your guests. Ever. If you choose to have a black-tie affair and expect your guests to dress up for the occasion, make sure you follow suit! A floor-length gown would be appropriate.

DO

Defy tradition! If you don’t want the usual traditional white A-line gown, explore all options. There are hundreds of wedding dress styles out there! Be sure to consult your officiant first to make sure she’s comfortable with your choice of attire! 

DON’T

Don’t wear a long train for a beach wedding. Just don’t. Delicate fabric and sand will never, ever mix.

DO

Let your personality show through with the way you accessorize your gown! You could give a traditional gown a fun twist by wrapping a colorful sash around it or wear large earrings!

DON’T

Don’t let your jewelry completely overpower your ensemble. If your dress has lots of intricate details already, accessorize with simple pieces. An engagement ring is enough! 

DO
Keep an open mind when it comes to shape on a gown. Make sure to try on many different types of gowns--you never know how they’ll fit until you take them off the hanger!

DO

Make sure you pick the right undergarments. This step is often overlooked in the process of picking out the right wedding dress. Anya Bridal recommends choosing pieces that closely match your skin tone and there are a variety of body-shaping products that will perfect your silhouette no matter how tight the gown is!
