The Wedding Dress

One thing is for sure, choosing your wedding dress is probably one of the most exciting things you will do for your wedding. I bet you will go out with your mom and best friends and just look at a zillion options, try them all and decide which is best suited for you and your wedding.

These are are a few things to keep in mind when making that final selection:

  • The climate
    Getting married on the beach can be hot. Very hot. A multi-layered dress will be unbearable. Elegant and simple is the way the to go.
  • Are you willing trash it? (just a little)
    No matter where you get married get something that can easily be cleaned! If you are on the beach the train will get full of sand and maybe, if you allow me, get wet in the ocean. Having the train float in the water at sunset looks fabulous! So don’t let a little salt water stop you from getting a dress with a train. If you are getting married in the mountains dragging a train (or carrying it) through trails will certainly get the train dirty and will be very difficult to keep clean for the pictures. I would suggest a dress without a train under these circumstances.
  • Don’t forget the groom!
    Think about the same questions. If you want to wear a jacket, which looks elegant, obviously get something light. Jackets can work for you and against you. Some people just sweat, it’s a fact of life, and a jacket can help keep it from showing through the shirt. For others a jacket may not be necessary, but could prove to be unbearably warm.
