You have the ring, you have the date, and most likely- the venue too. Next up? Finding your dream dress. Wedding dress shopping can be tricky since you’ve likely never worn anything this before. It’s not as easy as walking into a store and walking out the same day with a gown. Finding the one takes time! In our just-released WinterBook, we help you navigate the shopping process and figure out what works best for you. From designer insight to helpful fabric suggestions, our dress guide is here to help you find the perfect gown.

Wedding Gown Details We Love

Posted by Jeffra on Aug 05, 2011

Happy Friday Everyone! A few people close to us are dress shopping today, so we wanted to do a dress-inspired post. There are so many gorgeous looks out there and often when we go dress shopping we draw a blank on what to tell the boutique when they ask, “what style dress are you looking for?”  One of the things you want to make note of is the Fit, Bodice, Material, and Skirt Style. Also, if you do or do not want any embellishments (beading, embroidery, etc). This will make your dress shopping experience so much easier.  Below are a few of our favorite looks, and we’ve broken down the elements for you. You can also check out our wedding dress gallery full of current designer gowns that may help you “explain” your dress desires!
