There are lots of choices in styles, colors and fabrics among wedding dresses. It’s hard to choose when there so many choices, so try to think about your own personal style – are you looking for a dress that’s traditional, modern, or reminiscent of the old west? What season will you be getting married? Is your event indoors or out? In what type of fabric would you feel most comfortable?
Do you have a color preference for your gown? Today’s wedding dresses come in a host of shades from classic white and ivory or more modern hues like pink, turquoise, purple or sage. It is really up to you – you can’t go wrong with this unique style of dress. Don’t forget about your bridesmaids, flower girls and Mothers’ of the Bride. Coordinating their dresses with your wedding dress will make for a well-coordinated look and beautiful photographs that you will treasure for years to come! Colors of these dresses should coordinate with or accent your own dress. Mixing and matching lengths within coordinated styles can be a creative approach when you have bridesmaids with various tastes and styles. You can individualize each bridesmaid dress, while keeping the overall look consistent for your bridal party. Mother of the Bride dresses can coordinate among bride and groom side of the families, as well as with the Bridal Party.
Don’t forget to accessorize your wedding dresses with western style wedding boots, headpieces and jewelry. Other accessories include lace parasols decorated with fresh flowers. Most bridal stores that stock wedding dresses will also have coordinating wedding boots in a variety of styles, sizes and colors. High or low heels as well as ankle or mid calf boots are a fine complement to accent the look of wedding dresses. Headpieces can also accent your dress choice with options such as a traditional lace veil or more western looking hats with detachable veils, or beaded combs with attached veils.
Most Bridal Stores carry a good selection of wedding dresses and you can try these on to get an idea for style, fit and fabric. These boutiques also carry bridesmaid, flower girl and Mother of the Bride Gowns. Alterations can often be done on site for a fee. On-line boutiques also carry one of a kind, custom, wedding dresses. This is a popular shopping option when you want to review many different styles that are available in standard dress sizes. Be sure to always read the return policy before making your purchase. Should your dress not fit as desired or if it looks different in person than you remembered, you want to make sure you can get a refund or exchange should you change your mind about your selection. Shopping for wedding dresses can be a fun, memorable experience – you’ll look beautiful on your special day regardless of what style you choose!
