The answer is simple – whatever you want
Wear whatever you want to your wedding. whether you want to wear a gown fit for a princess or a ramshackle version of Elvis’ jumpsuit, as long as you’re happy with it, then its okay.
But if you’re reading this article, then I’m fairly sure that you haven’t decided on what you want yet. Otherwise, you’d have stopped reading the moment you read that sarcastic remark about wearing whatever you want.
A Few Tips on Deciding What to Wear at your Wedding
Consider what type of wedding you’re having. if you’re having a typical church wedding, then a customary white floor-length gown would suffice. Make sure that it’s not too revealing, otherwise the conservative church might not approve. but if you’re having a flashy Vegas-wedding, you can go crazy with your outfit. You remember that ramshackle version of Elvis’ jumpsuit I mentioned earlier? well, at a Vegas wedding, you can wear it with gusto. if you’re wedding is going to be a garden wedding, then you might want to wear a gown that sort of resembles a fairy’s outfit, and put a few flowers in your hair to complete the effect. This would give an ethereal feel to your wedding. if you’re going to have an evening wedding, an elegant gown would be great. if you’re going to have your wedding in broad daylight, those princess-style gowns would be wonderful.
The Wedding Gown Color
Most women choose to wear gowns though, so let’s hinge on this fact. if you decide to wear a gown, you’ll have to decide what color it’ll be. Most women opt for white as it symbolizes purity or virginity. After all, you’re supposed to enter marriage as a virgin, and wearing white would mean that you are one. You could also wear Cream or Ivory, as they symbolize the same thing. but if you don’t want to stick to tradition, then you could choose other colors like pink, blue, or yellow. whichever color you choose, make sure that it matches the color theme of your wedding. You don’t want to look out of place.
The Wedding Gown Design
Another factor to consider when choosing your wedding gown is your body type or your body features. if you are busty, then you might want to wear an off-shoulder bodice. Also, it would be advisable to wear a full skirt to balance your top. if you’re petite, then you should wear a simple gown. A strapless or off-shoulder A-line dress would look great on you. if you’re thin, you might want to wear a ball gown. if you’re tall, then you’re lucky because almost anything would look great on you. Empire cut gowns would just look wonderful on you. Just remember to avoid tall hairstyles and long sleeves.
The most important thing that you should wear on your wedding day though is a bright smile. Good Luck.
