Summer is just around the corner which means, wedding season is back on! As the days get longer and the sun shines brighter, an outdoor wedding becomes a suitable option. If you’re planning on having a garden-themed wedding or a beach-themed wedding, we’ve got the right wedding dresses in stock. So, are you wondering what outdoor wedding dresses look like? Stay tuned as we walk you through the newest collection that dropped just in time for summer with our top 5 picks!
1- Choose comfort and simplicity!
Before getting ahead of ourselves, we need to understand what we’re getting into. An outdoor wedding might sound magical and all, but it’s the least comfortable venue! If you’re hosting your reception at an open garden with greenery and grass, chances are a ball gown will only make it harder for you to move. And the last thing a bride needs is to fall on her wedding day, that’s why I suggested going for a lightweight dress. A great option is a bohemian lightweight dress that’s easy to move into.
Marisa by Ines Di Santo is a perfect option for an outdoor wedding, especially if it’s located in a garden. It’s one of the most sophisticated designer wedding dresses that will allow you the comfort and glamor that you seek as a bride. With its strapless sweetheart neckline and tight corset bodice covered with floral lace you’ll get the touch of femininity. Paired with a flowy lightweight skirt to sway the night away in and enjoy all the prancing and dancing!
2- Go for a unique, out-of-the-box look!
Who says a wedding dress should be exclusively white? A wedding gown is what you choose to walk down the aisle in, a dress that represents you and your personality. So, why not go for a colorful gown? It doesn’t have to be the color red or lime green per say, but a pop of color in a bridal look changes the whole mood! Stepping out of your comfort zone is a bold move and a big fat statement!
At first glance, some might look at the dress and wonder “Is it bridal enough?”, well anything can be bridal if it makes you feel like a bride. We’re no longer in the eighteenth’s century where brides are bound by social rules and etiquette, so wear that dress and rock it!
With this kind of affordable wedding dresses, you’ll guarantee a comfortable look and a very special and unique appearance. And if you’re still on the fence about stepping out of your comfort zone, just remember Gwen Stefani walking down the aisle in a fuchsia ombré gown!
