Think about you, your fiance, and the story behind the two of you. Were you high school sweethearts? College sweethearts? Best friends? Chance of luck? Internet daters? We seem to be finding our other halves in so many different ways that we all have a story. Each one being special and different from the rest - so why shouldn’t your big day and of course, your gown, be any different?
When you try on your gown - think about the wedding the two of you are creating. Your wedding is a reflection of your personalities and your story and your gown will only compliment it. If you are a simple couple - go for the chiffon’s and that “sweeter” look. If are a bold couple - go for something more dramatic with some beading and flare. Traditional - go for lace and maybe even the matching mantilla! Don’t worry, he’ll love whatever you choose!
Don’t be scared to express yourself and your relationship. That’s what makes this wedding planning adventure extra special.
We love jazzing up our look, don’t we? In a previous post we talked about short/long dresses being converted. But what if you couldn’t find a dress that could do that or didn’t exactly want to do a full costume change?
This is why our brilliant designers came up with the concept of a removable sash/belt. Well - this isn’t entirely new but many designers did not originally have accessories other than veils to compliment the gowns. They knew that girls wanted to have a sweeter look for the ceremony and a flashier look for the party. Who can blame them?
If you’re in between looks here are a few ideas:
Solid or ivory colored sash for ceremony
blinged out belt for reception
black or stark colored belt for reception
Some belts/sashes will have the same concept and pattern in different colors. This will be a nice way to keep your look consistent with a twist.
Keep in mind that this is part of your dress so you should work this into your budget. Belts can range anywhere from $50 to $600 so do your research and never be scared to ask if you can purchase the sample ;)
Brides are constantly re-inventing ways to use their dress in more than one way. Whether it’s to wear it again or to have something different between the ceremony and reception (even cocktail hour too). Well, lets face it - weddings are expensive and we don’t want to spend additional if we don’t have to. That’s why we chose today’s “dress of the day” as Tara Keely’s interchangeable wedding dress. We love this dress! The skirt is a detachable tulle and the bodice of the dress is all lace, and it’s mini! It’s quite adorable and you can make the look in three different ways: High-low, full ball gown, short party dress. How can you go wrong? To add some glitz and glamour, add some bling to the belt!
Look into your options if you’re going for a multi-look before buying two or three different gowns for your wedding day. Save the money for some cute outfits for the honeymoon ;)
