Wedding Dresses

Prepar­ing for a wed­ding is not only excite­ment and trou­ble, but also the prob­lem of choos­ing a dress. The pos­si­bil­i­ties of a mod­ern girl are unlim­it­ed, and the choice is huge. And here it is impor­tant not to get con­fused when choos­ing a col­or, style and style. We real­ly hope that this arti­cle will bring some clar­i­ty and put many points on the shelves.

The com­plex­i­ty of choos­ing your ide­al wed­ding dress is that you need to take into account a num­ber of fac­tors. Your per­son­al taste, wish­es, col­or type, fea­tures of the fig­ure and fea­tures of the cel­e­bra­tion — all this can be tak­en into account when choos­ing a wed­ding dress. At the same time, the style of the dress can fol­low all the rules of the clas­sics, reflect the neo-clas­sic or be an extrav­a­gant mod­el.

Classic variant

Choos­ing a clas­sic puffy or straight floor-length dress, you def­i­nite­ly won’t go wrong. They are refined and ele­gant, they are char­ac­ter­ized by a mod­er­ate decor. There are a lot of options: embroi­dery from threads or beads, blotch­es of rhine­stones or trim with lace.

For the wed­ding cer­e­mo­ny, it is bet­ter to choose a dress in which there will be a train. Its length is deter­mined by how solemn the event will be and in what style the wed­ding itself is orga­nized.

For a youth wed­ding, it is not nec­es­sary to choose a dress with a train, since the bride will feel awk­ward and even uncom­fort­able.

Clas­sic exists sep­a­rate­ly from fash­ion — this is the only direc­tion that is always pop­u­lar and rel­e­vant. So even if you like a dress from last sea­son, you can safe­ly take it and not wor­ry about its rel­e­vance. All the same, fem­i­nin­i­ty and romance do not age and remain the main choice of brides.

Although all the same, some changes in the clas­sic wed­ding fash­ion have occurred. It con­cerns main­ly lace, lay­er­ing and chang­ing the white col­or to its shades.

Design­ers try their best by com­bin­ing these ele­ments in their mod­els. The snow-white dress was replaced by mod­els of ivory (ivory), slight­ly pink and pearl gray. These col­or schemes give the out­fits a slight touch of antiq­ui­ty, which car­ries nobil­i­ty.

The wed­ding fash­ion in the style of the clas­sic red col­or is return­ing, which has ceased to be con­sid­ered avant-garde and defi­ant. When choos­ing a red dress, pay atten­tion to its shade — those tones that start from dark red and reach bur­gundy are accept­able. Such a dress can­not have flaws and be made of poor qual­i­ty mate­r­i­al.

When try­ing on a long wed­ding dress, be sure to con­sid­er the height of the heel, since the length of the dress should be two cen­time­ters from the floor (this is with the heel).


Many suc­cess­ful, charm­ing and very beau­ti­ful wed­ding dress­es belong to the min­i­mal­ist style. Their cut can be one-piece or have a cut line with a high waist.

A snow-white dress looks good with slits, straps and sleeves. Their shape and size can be very diverse.

There is anoth­er style of wed­ding dress­es that is sim­i­lar to min­i­mal­ism. It is called peyzan, and is pre­sent­ed in the form of a lace jack­et or made of cot­ton mate­r­i­al. The look is com­plet­ed with three-quar­ter sleeves and a gath­ered skirt.

Peisan style wedding dress

Not so long ago, dress­es, the cut of which goes along an oblique line, returned to mod­ern fash­ion. There is also a bare back and a com­plete lack of sleeves. These dress­es are dec­o­rat­ed with satin rib­bons, embod­ied in the form of lac­ing or replac­ing a belt at the waist.

With­out enthu­si­as­tic feel­ings, it is impos­si­ble to pass by minia­ture wed­ding dress­es, which are made of lace, vague­ly resem­ble a com­bi­na­tion. For a petite girl, you should first of all pay atten­tion to just such options for a wed­ding dress.

The fash­ion of the 60s is back. A dress of this style can also be used for a cel­e­bra­tion on the sec­ond day after the wed­ding. Pock­ets, tight sleeves, flo­ral, bright and cheer­ful col­ors will be appro­pri­ate here.

Neo-classic — she’s the last squeak

Con­sid­er­ing how design­ers com­bine clas­sics and inno­va­tions, it is of course worth high­light­ing dress­es with gold embroi­dery, a huge amount of lace and cry­olin.

The fol­low­ing areas are gain­ing pop­u­lar­i­ty:

  • corset dress­es with an unusu­al cut and draperies;
  • out­fits with a bus­tle, which is rep­re­sent­ed by a cot­ton pad and is used in the back of the dress;
  • Greek mod­els with their char­ac­ter­is­tic min­i­mal­ism and sim­ple cut.

Design­ers have tak­en a fresh look at cabaret dress­es. Short front and long back wed­ding mod­els intrigue and excite the imag­i­na­tion.

Just as pop­u­lar are dress­es in which a rich­ly dec­o­rat­ed bodice or corset is com­bined with skirts of var­i­ous lay­ers in terms of splen­dor. A nov­el­ty was the use of the Basque.

The com­bi­na­tion of lace fab­ric and del­i­cate leather added zest to sim­ple wed­ding dress­es. The illu­sion of a naked body has become the main dec­o­ra­tion of a lace out­fit. Most often, such a solu­tion is used through­out the dress, but for prudes, the illu­sion of naked­ness is cre­at­ed in the upper part of the image: sleeves, neck­line, inserts at the waist. Fine lace inserts are found on veils, gloves, var­i­ous capes or stoles.

Lace wedding dress


Nobody can­celed the white wed­ding dress. Nev­er­the­less, a mod­ern girl has the right to afford a wed­ding dress in oth­er shades, even more beau­ti­ful: ivory, the col­or of cham­pagne and con­densed milk, soft brown (cocoa with milk), peach, also in olive, yel­low, pink and blue shades and many oth­ers. In a word, design­ers do not lim­it them­selves or brides in choos­ing col­ors.

The choice of one of these col­ors becomes even more advan­ta­geous if the bride’s skin has a good, even tan. Pale gold, red and blue — there are also enough such wed­ding mod­els.

One of these col­or schemes can be used as a base, while on top of the base there is lace with gold or sil­ver over­flows.

In gen­er­al, the col­or of the dress should be select­ed accord­ing to the col­or type of the bride. There are clear rules for this:

  • white, pink­ish and sil­ver out­fits are well suit­ed for a brunette;
  • dress­es in gold­en gray, apri­cot and gray-blue shades will look decent on a blonde;
  • own­ers of light brown hair should choose out­fits of milky white, very light pink, green­ish and lilac-pink;
  • brides with red hair can com­plete­ly immerse them­selves in out­fits of all shades of the cream palette.

When try­ing on a dress, be sure to pay atten­tion to the fact that the col­or of the skin does not merge with the col­or of the out­fit. And, of course, take into account the groom’s out­fit, which in its col­or should be in har­mo­ny with the dress of his beloved.

The choice of a wed­ding dress should def­i­nite­ly be based on the style in which the wed­ding will take place. If the event is offi­cial and seri­ous, then the pres­ence of a train is prefer­able, and the dress itself should be long.

For a less for­mal event, you can afford a short dress with a train and strap­less. Design­ers offer brides to choose com­bined mod­els that eas­i­ly turn from long to short.

For a win­ter wed­ding, don’t go for light­weight dress­es, no mat­ter how much you like them. Still, a frozen bride will not look beau­ti­ful in pho­tographs and sur­round­ed by guests dressed for the weath­er. For a beach wed­ding or an ordi­nary sum­mer cer­e­mo­ny, strict styles embod­ied in heavy fab­rics will be inap­pro­pri­ate.


Many arti­cles have been writ­ten about the need and impor­tance of choos­ing acces­sories, but it’s still worth repeat­ing. These small ele­ments, which are called acces­sories, take on a great respon­si­bil­i­ty — to make the out­fit per­fect and even exclu­sive. And the fea­tures of the dress also do not hurt to high­light.

A set of wed­ding acces­sories is dif­fer­ent from those cho­sen for oth­er spe­cial occa­sions. For exam­ple, veil. Not all brides like her. But one has only to try on a veil along with a dress, as the out­fit is no longer pre­sent­ed with­out it. Here you need to choose it cor­rect­ly so that har­mo­ny is cre­at­ed in the image.

Although the cost of acces­sories in bridal salons is rather big, it is still worth choos­ing a dec­o­ra­tion for your neck, a hair­pin or a delight­ful tiara. More­over, you can vis­it sev­er­al salons and com­pare the cost of acces­sories or buy them in an online store.

The dia­dem will cre­ate a roy­al look. You just try to try on one of the tiaras that are offered in any salon. Imme­di­ate­ly feel how refined and lux­u­ri­ous your out­fit will become. Design­ers are doing a good job of cre­at­ing tiaras with stones and intri­cate pat­terns. One of them will def­i­nite­ly be yours.

Of course, a hand­bag is need­ed for a wed­ding dress, which will not only serve as the final chord in cre­at­ing the image, but also allow you to keep var­i­ous nec­es­sary lit­tle things with you.

Shoes, san­dals or boots must be select­ed strict­ly under the dress. This applies not only to their col­or, but also to the style.

Shoes for a wedding dress

Try to com­ple­ment the dress you bought with a pet­ti­coat or a crino­line — splen­dor has not both­ered any­one yet.

For a win­ter wed­ding look, a white fur coat or a stole, a fur cape or a jack­et will come in handy.

There are many pos­si­bil­i­ties for cre­at­ing a wed­ding image. And you have every chance to appear before the guests in an exclu­sive out­fit that will con­vey your inner feel­ings and make you feel like a real queen.
