The Dress

Perhaps one of the most anticipated moments of any wedding is the reveal of the bride.  Or should I say, her dress.  But whether you’re the bride or not, every woman shares one commonality upon wedding season; the hunt for the perfect dress.  Here are a few tips to help you find perfection when choosing a dress for any occasion!

First and foremost, know the venue.  Understanding where the event is being held is the first step that will help guide you in the right direction.  For my outdoor wedding at The Farm, a light weight dress made of tulle with delicate lace detail and an open back was the perfect choice.  The tulle fabric was airy and breathable for a hot summer day.  The silhouette was whimsical for cocktails by the garden, and the sheer lace and fluid structure complimented the romantic, chic setting.  As a guest, follow the same guidelines and you’ll be on the right track.

It’s important not to pigeonhole yourself into the same style you always wear, or think looks best.  Explore options outside of your comfort zone.  You may surprise yourself!  I always thought that my wedding dress would be a sleek, form-fitting silhouette… I was wrong!

Nothing ruins a great dress like the wrong shoes/bag/accessories.  When in doubt, keep it simple.
