Dress It Up!
April 20, 2014

Many couples need guidance on how to dress their wedding party to fit their wedding theme and we are here to help!

For the rustic/vintage theme, wedding gowns with lace is perfection! If not lace, a simple silhouette with unique details gives a vintage feel as well! For bridesmaids gowns a shorter chiffon gown is perfect! With this theme it is fun to have the bridesmaids in different gowns in the same color or in the same gowns but in different complimentary colors! The flower girls can wear anything from a sundress to a big tutu! Mothers may want to choose a short gown chiffon or short lace gown in a color complimentary to the wedding colors. For the men a khaki suit option is great for the vintage theme or wearing the same suit pants and shirts with suspenders and ties or bow ties! Have them all wear the exact same pants and shirts to ensure that everything matches! Most formal wear places rent separates so there is no mismatched attire! Fathers can use the same concept and can match the mothers’ or another accent color in the wedding.

With a modern themed wedding, the wedding gown should have a unique or couture looking fit! Sparkly beading or unique fabric would also be perfect! The accessories should show off the brides’ unique style! A unique veil, whether it’s a bird cage veil or a long dramatic veil works well with this theme. Floor length gowns work best for the bridesmaids that are unique in style or fit. If it is a summer wedding, bridesmaid gowns with a tailored pencil skirt will keep with the modern theme. Mothers can wear long or short satin gowns in a color that is complimentary to wedding colors. The flower girls dress should have some similarities to the wedding gown. The groom and his men can wear a fitted grey or black tuxedo with a colored bowtie or tie to coordinate with the wedding colors. Fathers could wear a classic black tuxedo with a black bowtie or tie.

For a destination wedding on the beach the wedding gown can be flowy or a light-weight fitted style that is easy to move in. If the wedding gown has a train on it, it can easily be removed or bustled. Accessories should be simple and a silk flower or hairpiece is a great alternative to a veil. For the bridesmaids, a short flowy chiffon gown will be comfortable for all the ladies and will also look amazing. Mothers can wear something light-weight and flowy as well, in a complimentary color. If there is a flower girl she can wear anything light-weight to compliment the wedding colors. It is important to have the men wear the same thing whether it’s a linen suit or linen pants with a light-weight microfiber shirt with matching ties. Fathers should wear a different color microfiber shirt that coordinates with the wedding colors or with the mothers.
