Wedding Gown Advice: What Color Wedding Dress Should I Choose?

Wedding Gown Advice: What Color Wedding Dress Should I Choose? Tips from Nayri, Wedding Fashion Expert Some words on gown color from Nayri, “Traditionally bridal gowns are of course supposed to be white, ironically most dresses featured in-store and seen on the runway aren’t always white. Designers love to design with a hint of color such as using colors like lilac, blush, pink, and even at times with a hint of blue. Designers call the color of a dress a million different things. We have dresses that are called vanilla, champagne, cameo pink, oyster, off-white, snow-white, and much more.” These different names technically do not mean the color of the dress, these names represent a fabric that the designer features. She recommends not getting hung up on what the color is called, but to instead look at what the color looks like on your skin, in pictures, and different lighting. […]

Wedding Gown Advice: How Much Should I Budget for My Wedding Dress?

Wedding Gown Advice: How Much Should I Budget for My Wedding Dress? Tips from Nayri, Wedding Fashion Expert “Budgeting for your wedding dress is hard to establish before seeing what the dollar buys you.” If you are unfamiliar with the cost of bridal gowns you can browse our designer section here to check out what different price points certain designers fall into. The bride’s stylist needs to know how much she is willing to spend. “Notice, it’s not how much you CAN spend, but rather how much you are WILLING to spend.” Many brides often get offended by this question because they feel they are being judged or that it may limit their gown options.

Just because they have very similar body types does not mean the same dress will look good on both of them. Nayri says, “There is no general rule of thumb on what will look good on what body type because everybody’s proportions are a little bit different.” She also advises to not focus on shapes and silhouettes of dresses. Instead, ask yourself, “Do I want to show off my body or not?” Once you figure this out, you can experiment with different types […]
