Très élégant

Spring Wedding

This beautiful Thursday afternoon seems like the ideal time for a huge cup of coffee (or two or three) and a good dose of bridal fashion. Don’t you think? It’s getting warmer out there (for us here in another side of the world), so I couldn’t imagine a better day than today to showcase what in my opinion is the perfect summer wedding dress.

Summer is the most popular season for weddings. What’s not romantic about endless sunshine, lush gardens, full bloom flowers, and steamy summer evenings? It’s important to choose the right dress to compliment the season, however, to keep the bride summery and comfortable. Most brides have personal preferences and a vision of what they want in a dress. The right dress for any bride has to be decided by personal style, the type of wedding, and the wedding budget.

Light weight fabrics can be extremely romantic options for summer wedding

We’ve hand-picked this week’s featured breezy flowy frocks for the season. Fact: we love ‘lightweight fabric’. It really is the new trend now –lighter and flowing fabrics can be extremely romantic options for a summer wedding. Your wedding is a day for indulging in special fabrics such as chiffon, satin and silk, that you may not wear at other times in your 'normal' life. It also provides you with a chance to be a little more 'girlie', even if that is not your normal style.


Why not show off your back this summer?

Shorter dress flatters your figure and compliment your beauty

By the same token, you may wish to avoid choosing heavy brocade or beaded fabrics for your summer wedding dress. With all the excitement and dressed in finery, most brides feel hotter than usual on their wedding days. With the potential for a very hot day, it is smart to choose a cool, lightweight style.

Shorter dress would also be a good choice. With the perfect design that reflects your good taste on the dress, short wedding dress would really flatter your figure and compliment your beauty. Also such a dress can be worn as a formal dress to attend special functions.

I love to play with colours and I think you don’t have to go with white wedding dress in the summer. You can go with pale hues, such as peaches, yellows, creams, and pinks. You don't want to choose something too dull, especially if you are getting married indoors or in the evening rather than the afternoon. A dress that is too pale won't look great in dim summer lighting. In other words, choose something pale, but still bold enough to stand out.
