A soon-to-be bride is always looking for a way for her look to stand out. A new fit. An exciting accessory. Something the guests will discuss in awe at the hotel's breakfast buffet the next morning. So here's a head start to planning your wow-wedding look. 

EXCITING TEXTURE AND FIT

There's a tried and true method in the shopping world to try on everything; even if it doesn't strike you on the hanger, it might still look amazing on you. We dare all you brides-to-be to allow your boutique stylist to get creative, to bring you some pieces that you didn't have in mind walking in. This sleeve length and lacework is unexpected, exhilirating, and absolutely a look of its own without overpowering the hair and makeup.

FASCINATING FASCINATORS

The veil is certainly making a comeback. For those who like this idea but don't need 8 feet of tulle to keep track of, this understated yet glamourous look may be for you. A chic throwback that has evolved countless times throughout the 20th century, it's obvious that a fascinator does what its name alludes to: catches the eye and draws attention to all the other beautiful features.

EXTRAVIGANT EMBELLISHMENTS

Whether it be cultural or not, a pure white wedding dress need not be the norm. Keeping it classic with an ivory base, but the addition of jewel-tone design elements bring forth another level of elegance. A guarantee all eyes will be on you. A way to celebrate heritage, or just another outlet to excentuate your individuality.

THE RECEPTION DRESS

The best of both worlds. The structured, maybe traditional ceremony dress that stays pristine and formal for the business side of the evening; the pictures, the receiving line. Then the reception starts, and so a more free-moving look is just what you need for dinner and dancing. This dress is allowed to be fraction of the 1st dress' cost, maybe even your Something Borrowed. Whatever the case, it is a full reflection of your personality for post-nutials party time.
