No matter what season, country or whether you're getting married in, you'll want to pick the right wedding dress - after all, you want to be comfortable, appropriate AND beautiful on your special day. Before you go shopping, think about the season you're getting married in, current trends and fashions, your own style and preferences, your color scheme and the general temperature and location you plan on getting married in.
The perfect bridal gown has to do more than merely make the bride look like a goddess (although that is a great start!); it also needs to suit the season, fit in with the venue, and personify the overall theme of the wedding. While venues and themes will vary, there are certain details which are always appealing when in season. For a spring wedding, think romance and flowers. A feminine organza wedding dress accented with delicate organza petals would be delightful for an April or May bride. A floral lace is lovely for an ultra-romantic bride. If your style is more dramatic, opt for an over-the-top three-dimensional floral applique all over the skirt of a strapless wedding gown. It is a haute couture style that will make you look like you just stepped out of the pages of a magazine.
Traditionally weddings are held in summer or spring, seasons of renewal and growth, where a bride in her beautiful white gown can be warm under the warmth of the sun. However, a winter wedding can be a just as beautiful background to a wedding as the summer. Imagine, white snow, the bright white icy sky and the romantics white fluffy clouds - it's just as picturesque as a summer's day.
Undoubtedly the most popular time to get married, summer weather is perfect for a wedding and then a glorious honeymoon. Weddings in summer can be held on a beach or in beautiful tropical gardens, with minimal chance of rain! Bridal bouquets have their choice of bright and fragrant seasonal blooms, and vibrant summer colors like lemon, azure, and cherry. An evening summer wedding at a beach can be the most memorable event of the year.
Spring is a lovely time to get married - the whole world seems to be waking up again, there's color everywhere all of a sudden, many gorgeous flowers are now in season and the weather can be kind. For your wedding gown, try out tea-dress or A-line styles for a feminine and fresh look. You'll probably want a shrug or pashmina to keep you warm if the weather turns chilly, too - and don't forget an umbrella in case of April showers! Make the most of the new spring foliage and weave flowers into your hair to celebrate the start of your new life together. Great colors for spring include pastels, yellows and shades of white and cream.
When opting for an Xmas wedding, look for a venue that is warm and inviting. Churches can be cold and drafty, so make sure they are heated well beforehand. For the reception and/or wedding, look for a roomy Inn or country house with a large fire place - it will certainly look the part for a winter wedding - not to mention keep your guests warm. Alternatively, look for a venue to hire that will incorporate a Christmas theme into your wedding day venue, such as adding icy whites, with the contrasting greens and reds of the season.
The best wedding gowns for autumn are warm and rich in color and style. The crisp white dresses of summer are out, replaced by soft ivory, rich cream, or even dramatic golden hues. Custom bridal jewelry in warm colored Swarovski pearls or crystals will complement the rich hue of the wedding gown. Sumptuous fabrics like silk satin or taffeta are gorgeous for autumn brides. Slubby silk dupioni is ideal for the rustic elegant barn weddings which are so popular in the fall months. Beaded or embroidered vine motifs are beautiful embellishments for fall wedding dresses.
Remember to take your time when selecting a wedding dress. It is better to look around and find a deal before jumping in on the first dress you see.
