Bridal Dress

The wedding is one of the oldest traditions and the bridal dress in its many styles can be traced very far back. Over the centuries the style of the wedding dress has changed many times to conform to current trends and culture.

One of the most important traditions and rites of passage when getting married is trying on bridal gowns. Traditionally the Mother of the Bride is there to witness and give opinions as well as at least one or two members of the bridal party including the Maid of Honor. Some make trips to large cities to try to find the perfect dress while others try to shop locally or even online.

It used to be that one would only find white dresses for this occasion. Nowadays it can be of any color and type according to the culture and desires of the bride. There is a huge selection of wedding dresses on display in all colors and styles.

With so many different types of bridal gowns to choose from, in hundreds of different styles, colors and fabrics, how do you go about choosing the perfect wedding dress for that special once in a lifetime day? Picking the best dress for your wedding day can be a daunting task!
Firstly, the type of wedding that you are planning will often have the most influence on the dress you pick. If you are planning to have a traditional wedding, you may want to have a classic style of wedding dress, but something that will still match your personality along with the theme of the wedding.

Secondly, the location of your wedding will have a big influence on your dress style. If you are planning to get married on the beach in a tropical climate, it is important to have the right wedding dress. You may want something more simple and easy to wear when you are standing on a beach or by a swimming pool. You may want to stick with the white or off white, or you may want to add some color to your wedding day and choose a bolder looking dress or add a colored sash to your gown. Lengths for beach wedding dresses may also be different. Think about whether you want to have a longer ankle length dress or if you want something that will be a little shorter. Short gowns have come back into style in a big way and are perfect for a wedding on the beach. Certain fabrics like lace, chiffon, and organza that are light weight are also good choices for beach and outdoor weddings. It is important for you to feel good and stay cool in your wedding dress.
The time of year is another important factor in the style of dress you choose. If you are getting married in the middle of winter you will want to have something that will keep you warmer, perhaps by looking for something in a thicker material like silk Mikado or something with long sleeves. There are many options for this style of wedding dress and you will want to take your time and choose one carefully.

If you are getting married in warmer months you may want to go for a strapless wedding gown. This is a choice that is risky for some women, but a perfect choice for others. The important thing is that you feel comfortable in your gown. Alternatively you may want to go for a backless wedding dress. This is a great idea that will be a perfect fit for many women. Do not be afraid to ask for what you want and to go for it. You only get married once and this is your day to be creative and to show off your style and personal taste.
