The absolute most important thing to keep in mind is to ask yourself, “How do I want to feel on my wedding day?” What’s great about asking yourself this question is that your answer will likely reveal something you might not have realized about what style you want. Whether you want to feel ethereal, romantic, sexy, princess-like, these are all things that can help determine what style will work for you. This also helps your stylist really hone in on particular silhouettes and styles that they think you’ll love, which will get you even closer to finding your dream gown!

If you find yourself gravitating toward being a glamorous bride, this type of look is all about the drama! From feathers to sparkly beading to dramatic silhouettes, a glamorous wedding day look should steal the show with your gown. Think rich, luxe fabrics, big sleeves, and long trains!
A bohemian wedding gown should feel effortless and carefree, making it perfect for brides who want to appear less fussy for their wedding day. Think of fringe, crochet lace, bell sleeves, or even separates. The silhouette for this should be flowy and move freely, never constricting your body.
If you’re leaning toward a romantic look, this is all about being feminine, soft, and even whimsical. There isn’t a specific silhouette that’s more romantic than others; it’s really all about the details here. Romantic gowns will feature chiffon, florals, or delicate beading.
A classic gown is perfect for a bride looking to be more traditional in her silhouette. The important thing to keep in mind here is that it should feel timeless, not trendy. This shape is perfect for a bride who isn’t looking for a gown to stand out too much or be dramatic in its shape, yet still stunning!
A more modern wedding gown should be the epitome of sleek and sophisticated, making it appear effortlessly stylish! Clean lines and fabrics like silk, satin, and crepe are great for achieving this. Keep your wedding day look fresh with statement jewels and chic hairpins.
