Choosing the perfect wedding dress.

When it comes to choosing a wedding dress, it’s fair to say that there is no shortage available. In fact, the amount of choice could even be considered overwhelming, so here is a quick round up of some of the most popular styles out there.

For pure elegance, traditional wedding dresses are still extremely popular, and they can be interpreted in so many ways to allow for originality. A long dress with long sleeves would be ideal for a winter wedding, but many variations in sleeve length and neckline make it a flexible enough style for year round celebrations.
And, though traditional wedding dresses have tended to be long, there’s no reason why a short dress isn’t perfect for a summer wedding or a civil or humanist ceremony. In addition, the timeless, chic jump suit has gained popularity in recent years, particularly for civil weddings.

Still tending to be white or ivory, there is nevertheless a fashion for wedding dresses with either a touch of colour or more, and bohemian-style dresses are still a favourite for rustic or country weddings.

It is always worth considering the season when making your choice. In spring and autumn there is often the potential for good weather but it’s just as likely to be unpredictable – and even daytime warmth won’t continue into the evening. Of course, one of the reasons that summer weddings are so popular is that warm weather and long daylight hours can extend the festivities. However, never underestimate the romance and atmosphere of a winter wedding and the opportunity it provides for an unforgettable winter wedding dress.

In the end, the price of a wedding outfit should not be unhappily prohibitive. There’s so much choice, from designer to high street, that whatever the budget, the dream dress is out there. And of course, the really important thing is that no matter what length, what colour, or what style, the bride loves it.
