Wedding Fashion & Style Wedding dresses

Here at Style & the Bride, the emphasis is definitely on fashion & style; so wedding dresses are a subject we cover almost daily. Once you have decided on your wedding venue, you are probably going to want to start going for shopping for wedding dresses pretty much straight away. When it comes to wedding dresses, we believe at Style & the Bride that it is important not be fixated by a particular style of wedding dress. You may have dreamed of wearing a fishtail wedding dress since you were a little girl, but you have to be prepared for it not to suit you. When you go wedding dress shopping for the first time, it is crucial to go with an open mind. We suggest that you go with your mum and one or two friends, but no more than two friends. Wedding dress shopping can be a little overwhelming, and it is important not be swayed by the opinions of too many people. Be guided by the wedding designer or boutique consultants as they are obviously used to seeing brides on a daily basis. You can obviously choose wedding dresses to try on you love, but don’t dismiss other gowns that you might not necessarily like the look of on the hangers. All too often, brides-to-be often end up with a wedding gown that they might not have necessarily considered initially. As well as tips and advice when it comes to shopping for wedding dresses, in this section, we have wedding dress inspiration from the latest catwalk shows as well as interviews with leading wedding dress designers. Whether you like modern , traditional, fashionable or quirky wedding dresses, we have everything you could possibly want in this section and more.
