Styles of 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
