    We don't all get to be in the wedding. So What to Wear to Weddings in 2023...

    Formal Weddings are your moment to go all out. Reach for dramatic lengths, unexpected prints, and shimmering details to make an elevated statement

    Black Tie - Makes it easy all you have to do is pick the right silhouette 

    Romantic Florals is a great option 

    Cocktail Dress - Metallic finishes and rich or vibrant colors always work well 

    Casual Wedding - This is Still an elevated look but with comfort in mind - Slip on an easy-going dress with a polished finish (use jewelry and statement or refine shoes)

    Beach Wedding - Light Weight Fabrics are a Must

    Remember the basic of picking a dress...

    Begin by exploring different wedding dress styles and designs that appeal to you. You can find inspiration online through wedding dress galleries, bridal magazines, or even social media.

    Make appointments at bridal boutiques or wedding dress shops, and consider bringing your mom or a close friend for their support and input. Give yourself ample time to shop around and try on different styles.

    Keep an open mind when trying on dresses, and be willing to experiment with different styles and designs that you may not have initially considered.

    Think about the season and location of your wedding. If you're getting married outdoors in the summer, you may want to choose a dress made of lighter, more breathable fabric. If your wedding is in the winter, you may want to consider a dress with more coverage and warmth.

    Prioritize the fit and comfort of the dress. You do want to feel confident and comfortable on your wedding day, so make sure the dress fits you well and doesn't restrict your movement.

    Trust your instincts and choose a dress that makes you feel absolutely gorgeous and self-assured. This is your special day, and you deserve to feel amazing in your dress!

    I wanted to end with the FIRST wedding dress...

    Worn by Princess Philippa of England in 1406. Her tunic-style dress was made of white silk, which was the customary color for wedding dresses at the time. The dress was adorned with gold trim, and she accessorized with a matching cloak and crown. However, it's important to keep in mind that wedding dresses as we know them today didn't become popular until much later in history, specifically during the Victorian era. Prior to that, brides would typically wear their best dress, regardless of its color or design. It wasn't until Queen Victoria donned a white wedding dress for her marriage to Prince Albert in 1840 that white wedding dresses became fashionable and desirable.
