With summer the most popular time to get married, I often hear from brides that they want a summer or beachy wedding dress, yet don’t have a specific style in mind. At your Dream Bridal, I often find that finding the right element in a dress is what gives it that perfect summer or beachy tone. Here I have outlined the 4 elements that make up the perfectly casual yet sophisticated look for the modern summer bride.
Soft, Flowy Skirts
Soft, flowy skirts give a wedding dress a sense of calm and ease, perfect for an outdoor wedding. This element can incorporate multiple layers and/or different fabrics. Many designers at Your Dream Bridal include soft flowing skirts, like these from Truvelle and Kelly Faetanini.
Low, Open Backs
Add an element of allure to your summer wedding dress with a low, open back. For the hotter months this feature in a wedding dress is not only gorgeous and sexy, it’s also very appropriate for the season. There are so many options for low backs including totally bare, corset-like ribbons or intricate straps. These are just a few of the low, open back options at Your Dream Bridal.
This Lis Simon dress is an amazing example of the illusion effect for a beachy, summer wedding dress. Whether with lace, tulle, chiffon or thin silk, a dress with translucent fabric is a perfect match for a summer bride looking for that lightness in her gown.
Above all else, a perfect summer wedding dress exudes confidence and sense of self with comfort and ease of movement in mind. In a dress with an unstructured silhouette, a bride showcases her casual, yet strong demeanor and her romantic side. These two dresses by Truvelle and Made With Love, showcase that unstructured silhouette perfectly, quintessential for a summer or beach wedding.
Whether you are looking for a dress for the summer with all or some of these elements, or you have a completely different style in mind, at Your Dream Bridal, I specialize in taking a bride’s personality and ideas and navigating the many dress options to find THE perfect dress.
