Be Bold in Being Yourself on Your Wedding Day
Your wedding day is a unique opportunity to be just that… unique, in every way. Keep this in mind when viewing and fitting wedding dresses.
Did you know that white wedding dresses never actually symbolised purity, but rather wealth? It was very hard work to wash clothes by hand in the 18th century – you would only wear a white garment once, so those who were married in white were seen as rich and upper class.
All we can say is thank goodness that times have changed! In fact, times have changed so much that today’s brides often “upcycle” their wedding dresses to wear at other formal or fun occasions. Just small tweaks here and there, and their wedding dresses become party showstoppers.
This is typical of today’s fashion-conscious bride. Brides opting for something-out-of-the-ordinary in a wedding dress are often seen as daring and rebellious, and we love that, as it’s all about personal taste.
There are many styles of wedding dresses which should pique the interest of adventurous brides. But, when viewing wedding dresses, you aren’t likely to have the picture in your head appear on a hanger in front of you. So, keep an open mind and speak to your bridal consultant about what you envision and how particular wedding dresses could be altered to fit that image.
At Timeless Bridal Couture, we have a seamstress on site, making it easy for our brides to play around with ideas and work with a true professional who knows wedding dresses.
Some of the ways in which you could translate your style into a truly unique wedding dress:
- Shorter hem in the front and longer at the back
- Pops of colour
- Delicate or bold lace
- Illusion necklines
- Sheer skirts
- Accessories, including hair jewellery (we stock a gorgeous selection of rose gold accessories)
Take a look at this stunning princess-style wedding dress from Stella York. It exudes elegance and romance, and there’s no danger of this gorgeous design clashing with your theme or your groom. Remember, you can add your own touch to this dress, as with many other wedding dresses, to really put your personalised stamp on it.
Another one of our wedding dresses which stands out from the crowd is the Alexia. There are wedding dresses and there are wedding dresses – and then there’s the Alexia! It is a luxurious wedding dress fit for a princess, yet its sleek satin ballgown style with a plunging v-neckline is fabulously chic and modern. Simply breathtaking!
For brides looking at wedding dresses that have more than just the princess factor – we’re talking queen factor – look no further than our Ariane (with or without overskirt). This is one of those wedding dresses nobody will forget. Add the dramatic lace overskirt to make a unique statement in this magnificent dress.
These are just a few of the wedding dresses you’ll find at Timeless Bridal Couture. Whatever you vision, we have a wedding dress to fit your unique style and creativity. Come see for yourself.
