I recently got married in the church and I know how much of a pain was to choose the perfect dress. I think that I tried on at least 30 beautiful wedding dresses and that was simply because I did not know what I want. The only thing I knew was that I did not want my beautiful wedding dress to be traditional. It is not that I do not like them, but I think that they do not represent me. In the end, I decided to wear at the ceremony the dress I wore at the civil ceremony a year ago, a gorgeous knee length white dress with a hand-sewn lace top and a tulle skirt. And at the lunch-party, I changed in a Max & Co. full of sparkling silver glitter green dress. Oh, and I had a gorgeous flowers wreath on my head. No other accessories apart from that. And the wedding ring, of course.
A month and a week after, it finally struck me: it can be easily said that there are three categories of brides – the princess, the unconventional and the diva. And to help more women that are soon to get married or dreaming about it at least, I am writing this article and giving you some suggestions about what could be your wedding gown style or how to choose the perfect dress from a variety of beautiful wedding dresses.
The Princess Bride
Most of us dreamed of a fairy tale wedding, with a H U G E wedding dress, a tiara and Prince Charming when we were little. Luckily, designers also remember their childhood ideas of beautiful wedding dresses and come up with gorgeous designs that will make you look like a fairy tale princess.
The Unconventional Bride
Simple, yet sophisticated can mean unconventional too. White, nudes or vibrant colors. Anything is accepted. The only rule is for you to love how the dress makes you feel. And if you are looking for a head accessory, talk to your florist and ask for a flowers wreath.
The Classy Diva Bride
Some women might consider the idea of princess-style wedding dresses overrated but they don’t want to leave all traditions behind and be 100% unconventional. They prefer feminine, sparkly or themed beautiful wedding dresses that will suit their personalities while making them feel confident and feminine.
I can certainly say that I was an unconventional bride, and it looks to me like more and more women are going on this ‘path’. If you were to marry tomorrow, which dress are you mostly likely to choose to wear?
