As I hang out in our lovely romantic room in Canmore, I am starting to think about wedding dresses. I know it’s coming to the end of the wedding season but I know that most brides order their wedding gowns six to twelve months before the big day.
Please do the world of fashion a big favour and be an original when you choose your dress. What I mean by this is please don’t choose yet another strapless wedding dress. You’re a unique gal who has met a one in a million guy so why do you want to be like every other bride? I think one shouldn’t choose a strapless wedding gown until you have tried on every other type of neckline and it’s the only thing that makes you look your very best. Pretty much every wedding I have seen in the past ten years, the bride was wearing a strapless wedding gown. And for many of the brides, it wasn’t a flattering look at all. To top it off, most brides at some point tug up the bodice at least once in plain view. That would make for a lovely wedding photo later wouldn’t it? What’s worse is that some brides who are less endowed slide out of their bodices when they start dancing the YMCA.
Here are some real examples from the past ten years that prove there are many other options to choose from which are way more fashion forward, flattering, and interesting. For even more neckline options, there is the square, sweetheart, halter, portrait, off-the-shoulder, sabrina/bateau, and jewel.
