Choosing A Wedding Dress


The hunt for a wedding dress can be difficult, yet one of the most exciting and special experiences you will ever have. Finding the perfect dress is a moment you dream about from the time you are a little girl, and you’ll know when you find it! As they say, when you know, you know.

Whether you have tried on 100 dresses, or none, stay positive. You will find the one! We have pulled a few dress styles to spark some inspiration and hopefully ease this part of your wedding planning process.

A-Line Ball Gown

Simplicity is key with this dress! This bride shines in her a-line dress, with a sweetheart neckline. The beaded belt makes her waist look tiny, but adds a small amount of sparkle, which really makes the dress stand out. This style of dress is perfect for any season and is extremely flattering on any body type!

Many brides think that white is the only color a wedding dress comes in, but that is not true. There are actually many different shades of white, and ivory, that are becoming more and more popular to wear! This stunning, off-white dress screams whimsical with its beaded straps, and tool bottom. This style of dress is great for the more modern, edgy bride, looking for subtle ways to make their wedding stand out.

Lace Halter

A timeless lace dress, with a halter back, is ideal for a summer wedding in Texas! It is light, airy, and elegant, with a Southern touch. The slim cut, loose, a-line shape is great for dancing and staying comfortable throughout the night. You can never go wrong with classic lace!

Ow! Ow! This strapless, mermaid style dress is a show-stopper with its intricate lace detail, subtle sweetheart neckline, and beaded belt. This shape dress is great for shorter, petite brides, who don’t want to be eaten by their dress. However, if you are not a shorter bride, still try on a mermaid dress, because you never know what might work. Don’t limit yourself while on the hunt for the perfect wedding dress!
