Perhaps one of the most paramount clothing decisions you will need to make in your lifetime is deciding on a wedding dress. This momentous milestone is an event that will most certainly be looked back on for years to come. Not only do you want your wedding dress to be everything you imagined when you were a little girl, but you also want it to fit the type of wedding you plan on having. And above all, your wedding dress should fit into your own personal style and should be something you absolutely adore. Let’s delve into what types of gowns fit into the wedding you will have.

For a traditional wedding, perhaps that takes place in a church, you will want something more timeless and tasteful. Ball gowns and A-lines are the epitome of class and will most make you feel nothing short of a princess. Within this category, you have flexibility in the type of neckline (sweetheart, strapless, off-the-shoulder, etc.). All of these options are so flattering on every body type and accentuate the neckline beautifully, while also contrasting against the fullness of the skirt.

If your wedding will be beachside, you will definitely want to opt for a dress that is equally comfortable and uncomplicated. The beating sun, deep sand and and ocean breeze aren’t optimal for an overwhelmingly heavy wedding gown. Instead, think soft silhouettes comprised of lighter fabrics like silk and lace. As far as silhouette, trumpet silhouettes are the perfect balance between non-constricting and form-fitting.

Rising in popularity over the past couple of years, rustic weddings in venues such as restored barns, are extremely charming and organic. In order to compliment this sophisticated shabby-chic aesthetic, wedding dresses with vintage lace, embellishments, high necklines, and soft tailoring always tie in with this farmhouse vibe. These bohemian details add enough charm without being over-the-top or too traditional for a more relaxed wedding.

Lastly, if you and your fiancé have planned a more modern ceremony, you will want your wedding dress to reflect this new age, contemporary vibe. If you are the type of person who keeps up with all the latest and greatest trends, why not extend this to your wedding? Modern brides can get more creative with newer details that stray from the more traditional silhouettes. I am talking about trumpet sleeves, tastefully placed cutouts, jumpsuits, open back, low V-necklines, and high slits.
