Many people, when they think of a wedding gown, think only of elaborate and fancy gowns. There are times, however, when a very informal wedding dress is more appropriate than a fancy gown.
Here are some examples of when a very informal wedding dress may be the right choice.
A Beach Wedding
A beach wedding is one obvious time when a more informal dress would be appropriate. Since getting married on the beach continues to grow in popularity, there are dresses that were designed specifically for the beach wedding.
Dresses designed for a beach wedding, while informal, can still be quite beautiful.
A Backyard Wedding
Those getting married at home are also candidates for a very informal wedding dress. The dress you wear for such a wedding could even be a nice suit or a special occasion dress.
Or, you could opt for a dress that was designed as a wedding dress, but that is much more informal.
Of course, some who marry at home still have a big, elegant affair. If that is the case then, of course, a more traditional wedding gown would be appropriate.
A City Hall Wedding
Women who choose to say their vows at City Hall typically do so in a very informal wedding dress. As with a home wedding, this could be an everyday dress or a simple wedding sheath.
A Small Daytime Wedding
In some cases, even weddings that take place at a church call for a very informal wedding dress. An example of this would be a very small wedding that takes place in the morning or early afternoon.
For such a wedding an informal wedding dress would be appropriate.
There are other occasions when a very informal wedding dress is the right choice. One of those is, very simply, when it is what the bride wants. Some women just prefer the idea of a simple dress instead of a big, elaborate wedding gown.
If this is what the bride prefers, the other details of the wedding should be scaled down to match the tone set by the dress.
On the other hand, there may be times when a bride who is having a beach, home or city hall wedding wants to wear a full wedding gown. Remember, many women have been dreaming about what their wedding dress would look like since they were little girls.
Just because they have opted to have a more casual wedding doesn’t necessarily mean that they are ready to give up their dream dress.
Many brides are married in city halls across the country every day in a ball gown style wedding dress. And if you’re a bride getting married on the beach, you wouldn’t be the first to do so in a sequin covered tulle wedding dress.
Yes, there are sometimes when a very informal wedding dress is the best choice. Ultimately, however, the dress that is most appropriate is the one that the bride really wants to wear.
