Destination Wedding Dresses

As the season begin to turn its hard not to think of the ultimate romantic getaway. More and more brides are planning destination weddings. What’s not to love? Destination Weddings are exciting, adventurous, intimate and so romantic. Here are some tips when shopping for your destination wedding dress and travelling with you dream gown!

Shop for a dress that will compliment your destination.

When shopping for your dream dress you must always keeping mind where you are getting married and find a dress that is the best fit. If you are getting married in a warm climate or by the beach you want to select a gown that is light that won’t weigh you down or get to hot through out the day. Breathable fabrics are a must for a hot and humid location. You can always let your bridal consultant know you are planning a destination wedding and they will be able to give suggestions.

If your in need of a little inspiration we will be hosting the Tara Lauren 2019 Isle Botanica Collection January 11th-13th. Inspired by Bali with lush floral fabrics and breezy silhouettes it will make a perfect fit for a destination wedding. Be sure to check out our Instagram for some sneak peeks or the Tara Lauren website. You can book your appointment for the trunk show on the Bridal Room website.

Know how to travel with your dress.

Once a destination bride find her dream gown her next steps is to figure out a travel plan. If you are flying call the airline ahead of time and inform then that you are travelling with a wedding dress. Keep your gown with you as a personal item when checking into your flight and you can ask the crew to store it in the plane closet.

Pack your day of essentials

Amongst other day of essentials we always recommend having a mini steamer for last minute touches. After travelling the dress may wrinkle and need a light steaming before the ceremony. Sewing kits are a great item to keep on hand if buttons need to secured or if there loose threads

Ultimate Guide to Veils

So you have found your dress, now its time to pick out the perfect veil to complete your bridal look! When choosing the perfect veil its all about complimenting you and your gown.  The possibilities are endless, but no worries here are a few tips and trick to help find the dress best suited for you and your gown! 

Length

The first thing to consider when picking out your veil is the length you prefer. Do you prefer a short and simple Elbow length veil or a full dramatic Cathedral length veil? The most common lengths are Fingertip which will fall at your fingertips when your hands are at your sides, and Cathedral which often ends past the train of your gown. Its best to try both lengths in your appointment to see what look you like best.

Shape

The second thing to consider is the shape of your veil to compliment your gown. There is the straight cut or U-cut, which is a classic and will pair nicely with any gown. An angel cut veil creates a V-shape which will fall in beautiful cascades in the back, which will suit fit and flare dresses. Handkerchief veils or square cut create voluminous layers which will compliment bohemian style or whimsical dresses. The last shape will be the circle or oval veils this shape will give you volume by adding a blusher. a blusher will be the piece that drapes over the face, often used in traditional ceremonies.

Finish

Next thing will be finishes, the simplest finish will be the raw cut tulle. Other trims include satin ribbon, organza ribbon as well as pencil stitching,  Having a trim will help outline the veil and make it easier to photograph. If you want full drama you can chose a beaded veil or a romantic lace veil.
