Summer is after all the wedding season and an almost endless sea of summer wedding dresses are available for you to choose from for your special day. Choosing the right wedding dress is no small task for any bride-to-be so be sure to follow a few simple tips to feeling cool and confident for your sunny season nuptials.
Firstly, you need to consider where your big moment is going to take place. If you plan a largely indoor ‘do, then traditional silk and styles can be enjoyed even in the warm season. If you’re planning a backyard or beach wedding then you definitely will want to avoid going the silk and satin route as these fabrics act trap in heat and will leave you feeling trapped underneath all that outdoor humidity and miserable. If a beach or destination wedding is in the planning, be sure to choose a lightweight, breathable fabric, such as cotton, to keep you cool, comfortable and fuss free under the tropical sun. An outdoor wedding is also subject to the weather, with the beach almost certainly being breezy and leaving a long dress subject to the sand. If you want to keep your hemline clean, a tea length dress is the perfect choice. You should also plan ahead for chillier evening temperatures with a shawl or wrap if planning to be outdoors at nighttime.
If your summer wedding will mostly be indoors, then you are free to choose from an endless array of styles and fabrics. Bear in mind though that most wedding photos will take place out of doors, so if you opt for a full out cinderella wedding gown with all the layers and trimmings, be sure to have an umbrella on hand to shade you from the hot sun, and a touch up kit readily available to deal with persperation or running makeup.
Now that you know where you’ll be exchanging your vows, you need to consider your body type. Of course, every bride radiates on her big day, but how can you choose a shape and style that will take his breath away? To begin with, any dress that it fitted on top and free flows on the bottom will naturally flatter any body shape. A fitted bodice or detailed bustline will draw all eyes up to your face and upper body, which for most of us, is generally more flattering than our lower half. A halter neck wedding dress is very trendy and youthful, and will slim you down with out having to hit the gym. Strapless is the popular choice for brides, especially for summer weddings. This look can flatter as well, if tailored perfectly and coupled with the right undergarments for support.
Shopping for the perfect summer wedding dress need not be stressful nor bring any unexpected surprises on the big day if you keep these simple tips in mind . Your wedding dress will be remembered for years to come, and will definitely be the most fun and beautiful dress you have the pleasure of wearing! So regardless of where you will hold this momentous event, take the time to enjoy being the bride and have the perfect summer wedding in a gorgeous summer wedding dress!
