Six Trending Winter Wedding Dresses

Six Trending Winter Wedding Dresses

Our team at Wedding Collectibles had a lot of fun this week diving into the fall and winter wedding dresses trends for the upcoming year. The collections showcased a lot of fantasy, whimsy, and nods to the past too. We saw a lot of dazzling sequins and pearly beading. Cute bows made lots of cameos on the catwalk and we loved how the BIG ball gown was trending on the runway too! We hope you will fall in love with these looks just as much as we did!
“There is definitely a 'red carpet moment' to a bride's wedding day, but when designing for bridal, it is important to focus on the details that will captivate and capture the imagination of the bride - she has to fall in love with the gown.” - Jenny Packham, UK bridal gown designer

Your wedding gown

Weddings are special for everyone. The most visible thing on that day is the wedding gown. You must ensure that your gown is perfect as you will be the centre of attraction on the day. However, that does not in any way mea that you will have to spend a fortune on your gown. You can look as graceful and beautiful in a budget gown. You will just need to learn to properly carry it. To zero in on the gown that fits you best, you will need to search, search and search. Visit as many stores as you can. If possible, search online too. The more options you have, the better will be your choice. If you want a customized gown, then you need to order it much before hand. Then you would need to do fitting sessions before you actually can give a go ahead. If you wish to opt for a discount wedding gown, then you must be extra cautious. A discount gown might look stunning in the catalogue but in reality, it might not be so pretty. You can also seek the advice of a wedding consultant who will study your body type, skin texture and so on and suggest the right gown for you.

Choosing Your Wedding Gown

Your wedding dress should be something very special to you. After all it is your special day and you would want to look your best. You need to do a thorough survey before zeroing in on any one. This has to be a relaxed job. You must not rush it. You can carry pictures of the gowns you like as a sample to your bridal consultants. You must take one of your bridesmaids with you for a second opinion. You can also involve all your friends and family for an opinion. Your jewelry should also be coordinated with the gown. On the D day, make sure that you save your dress from food or drink stains. You have to be very careful with the way you handle your dress. One small stain and your special dress is ruined. You must be careful about the flowers you use too as flowers have a tendency to stain. If you are carrying your dress to a different location on the day of your wedding, then you must make sure that you put them in water proof garment bags. Once you wear the dress, you must be very careful not to trip on it. Lift your skirt and walk. This way, you can also avoid it getting soiled.
