*Blush Brides - How To Find Your Perfect Dress

.
How to pick the Bridal Style that’s unique to YOU
Just like Cinderella’s glass slipper, when you find “the one” (and no, we’re not talking about your prince or princess charming!) it will be like finding a one-of-a-kind-made-for-you-can’t-live-without-it-dream-dress -- and you might be surprised that the idea you have in your mind might not be what you end up settling on! 
Here we discuss the various shapes, silhouettes, and styles for the BLUSH Bride. Be sure to keep an open mind and an open heart and the right dress is sure to find you! In this Blush Bride Blog, we ask the BIG questions (okay, not the REALLY big question, your partner’s already done that!) to get those wheels turning on how to match your dress to your unique-to-you-special-day

What’s your silhouette? 
So you’ve been dreaming of this day (and let’s be honest your dress) since you were a little girl, what were you envisioning? The ethereal A-Line? A more fitted Mermaid style? The dramatic Ball Gown? Or something more Alternative like a Jumpsuit!? **TIP: When choosing your silhouette be sure to consider what areas you’d like to accentuate.

Ethereal A-Line: 
Named after the letter “A” because it fits in at the waist and flares away at the hips, this flowy boho shape is perfect for all body types - but especially flattering for those that want to accentuate their waist like our Three-Quarter Sleeves Ivory Boho Wedding Dress - the perfect gown for Susan and Noah’s natural, boho themed wedding in California!

Fitted Mermaid: 
Often considered a sexier style, the Mermaid dress hugs your curves in all the right places with sophistication and elegance. This style (also called “fit n’ flare”) hugs your body through the bodice and hips and flares away from the knees creating a mermaid style train (hello, Ariel!). One of our personal faves, we’re loving the Off-The-Shoulder Mermaid Maxi Wedding Dress available in ivory and champagne.

Dramatic Ball Gown: 
This one’s for the romantics, the fairy princesses at heart! This classic style has a slim bodice and a voluminous skirt that demands attention. A great option for every body shape, but especially those that want to accentuate their waists and their chests, we like our Strapless Dot Tulle Wedding Gown for that ballerina-style look. Take a look at Casey & Jordan’s wedding for some serious ballgown inspiration.

Adventurous Alternatives: 
Calling all 2020-2021 brides! Yes, we’re looking at you. Why not try something a little edgier? We’re loving the modern silhouettes of a Bridal Skirt and Top, this sweet style still has a sexy-edge and is the perfect boho look for those woodland weddings. For those strong femme fatale types, throw caution to the wind and go for a Jumpsuit - the perfect choice for those that want to elope!

What’s your wedding day VIBE? 
To really pick your dress, picture your big day: are you going to have an earthy barn-style wedding? A contemporary chic affair? Or are you going to keep things au currant and elope somewhere with your sweetheart? The gown should definitely fit your venue and vibe.

The Free-Spirited Wedding: 
You’re an adventurer at heart and have a bit of a wild side! When you think of your wedding day, you’re drawn to the elements: forests, mountains, seaside. Whether that’s a barn bash with your nearest and dearest or a mountain-top elopement with just your honey, you’re a free spirit and are drawn to vintage laces and a more flowy silhouette. An easygoing shape and comfort top your list of requirements!

The Contemporary Classic Wedding: 
You’re a bit of a Type-A personality and like things just so! You’re drawn to sleek, simple sophistication - like a city-hall elopement (a la Carrie Bradshaw) or an avant-garde art gallery affair. Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly are your style icons. Your gown will be a crisp crepe in a column shape, with unexpected details like a high slit or maybe an addition of an accessory like a cape! For some major inspiration, check out how Larissa styled her classic BLUSH gown for her dreamy New Zealand wedding.

The Romantic Wedding:
You’re a dreamer at heart and want your day to be filled with wonder and whimsy (See: ALL the twinkle lights!). You’re more of a traditionalist and envision your wedding day set in a classic cathedral or a botanical garden. You watched all the rom-com as a child and Cinderella’s style muse. When you close your eyes, you envision a sweetheart neckline, and a fuller skirt with tulle, beading, and of course a string of pearls - similar to how Deanna styled her look for their lakeside nuptials!
