Growing up, many girls spent hours on end imagining what their wedding would be like right down to the very last detail. As little girls you would dance around the house humming music to which you swore would be your wedding song.
You would prance around your house whistling “here comes the bride” as you carefully practiced your eloquent walk that you would one day take down the aisle as you wore your picture-perfect designer wedding gown. After years have passed and you have found the man of your dreams, all that is left to do is find the perfect inspired designer wedding dress to complete your childhood wedding fantasy.
If you take much inspiration from the youthful elegance portrayed in posh sundresses that you see confident women donning, then a short-length gown is perfect for your wedding. A strapless dress covered in ivory lace is a trendy option for a lovely afternoon ceremony. This shift dress features a blush organza ribbon under the bust line, and is completely covered in intricate beading. In this short alternative to the flowing gowns, you will be as comfortable walking down the aisle as you would be having lunch at the new restaurant.
For the bride who wishes to maintain some of the traditional wedding elements in her gown while adding a bit of fun, then an ivory dress with a bateau neckline can be a timelessly elegant option. This gown, complete with a satin bodice, is completely covered with English Net and layered with whimsical lace. The full skirt on this gown will allow you the perfect amount of bounce, as you strut down the aisle, without taking away from the dress’s beauty.
Cinderella, a favorite childhood fairy tale for many little girls, is often pictured as the ideal wedding. As they eagerly watched this heart-warming story, they dreamt of the day that their own prince charming would come rescue them. And, of course, they would drift off picturing the perfect wedding dress they would be wearing as they kissed their knight in shining armor. A modern take on this classic fairy tale style can be achieved by selecting a feminine and flirtatious white gown made of silk satin, with delicate spaghetti straps and a full skirt that includes an elegant train which flows as you walk. The front appliquéd skirt and richly detailed embroidery on the bodice are the perfect combination, while the intricate details on the ribbon around the waist are perfect complements to the overall look. To complete this in true princess style, consider adding a large crystal necklace, dangling earrings and a sparkling tiara.
Some brides prefer to take their style inspiration from queens who set trends hundreds of years before Cinderella ever lost her shoe. These brides will be pleased to know that those ever-popular Renaissance looks they desire have been updated for a modern wedding look. An elegant Victorian blouse in silk taffeta will catch the attention of all who attend your classic wedding. This ivory top is complete with all of the ruffles one would expect of the queen, while the skirt provides a modern twist. The mermaid skirt is meticulously jeweled with crystal and platinum for a one-of-a-kind look suitable only for the chic.
If you are a bride that gets inspired by the sleek, form-fitting garments seen on the red carpet, then a silk crepe Georgette gown, in diamond white, could be your perfect look as you demand the attention from paparazzi. The neckline of this modern gown is notched to draw the eye to the elaborate beading at the top of the empire waist. The cut crystals wrap all the way around the midriff of this dress to make sure you are picture ready from every angle. While the dress contains enough length in the back for a small train, a crepe or chiffon scarf could be draped down the back to further add a touch of flowing grace.
Another radiant look in diamond white is a silk satin Chiffon gown. This plunging v-neck is reminiscent of the Greek goddess style, especially with the soft flow of the skirt as it descends from the thick waistband. A detachable train ensures that you will be ready to go from ceremony to reception with minimal effort.
A strapless gown in ivory is another look that is sure to demand the attention of everyone in attendance. A stunning alternative to the typical satin is Chantilly Lace cascading down the slim-fitting gown. The gowns’ draped bust and pleated skirt will give you the appearance of floating down the aisle. You also have the option of wearing the matching wrap to give a touch of elegance for a more formal evening affair.
