Elegant Wedding Dresses
Your wedding is a day you’ll remember for years to come so choosing a timeless wedding dress just makes sense. Staying on trend can be fun, but you run the risk of looking back on photos and wondering what you were thinking when that trend has come to pass in a few years. Classic and timeless wedding dresses are dresses that stand the test of time. They never go out of style.
What makes a timeless wedding dress, exactly? We look at details like necklines, silhouettes, fabrics, details, and colours. Of course, not every bride chooses to wear white, but ivory, cream, and off-white gowns tend to be the most classic.
How do you become a timeless bride?
We always recommend looking to the past and seeing what has stuck around through the years. Check out your favourite designers, celebrities, and brands to see what they’ve been designing, wearing, and selling, as well as who they are inspired by. Things like cathedral veils, a-line gowns, and fabric buttoned bodices are good examples of timeless wedding dress styles, but you’ll find that there are a lot of options that stand the test of time. Look at necklines (hint: the sweetheart neckline is the most popular through time), silhouettes, sleeves, and trains to find something you love that won’t go out of style.
How do you style a classic wedding dress?
Being timeless doesn’t mean you have to be ornate or overstated. Simple wedding dresses can stand out when paired with classic wedding shoes and a traditional cathedral style wedding veil, for example. Or you might choose an heirloom piece of jewelry to go with your classic wedding gown.
