Can you explain the different train length options?

What are the different train lengths? "Cathedral" is obvious, but what's "sweep" and "court" etc.?

Should the gown dictate the wedding style?

So, this isn’t exactly a question of etiquette so much as protocol… the wedding dress I have bought is an unusual mixture of tradition (strapless, with a small-mid length train) & non-tradition (it’s red with black lace & bead detailing)… does a dress of this kind lock me into a formal wedding?

Should I change into a different gown after the ceremony?

I want to know how long can you wear your dress after the ceremony? Can you continue to wear it throughout the reception or is it best to have a smaller gown to wear for the reception? My ceremony and reception are at the same venue and I’m just curious as to whether or not…

Can I Wear Satin In Summer?

Let’s address your second question first: The reality is, you probably won’t ever wear your wedding dress again — there simply aren’t too many life occasions that will call for a long white dress. Of course, if you choose a simple sheath, you could have it dyed after the wedding and wear it on formal…

Flattering Dress For A Full Chest?

Your problem is more common than you may think. The most important thing overall is that you have proper support and feel comfortable. Be sure to find an uplifting foundation garment, or curtail your curves with a one-piece minimiser worn under your gown that boasts a fitted bodice to emphasise your waist. A full skirt…

Should I Buy It Before I Lose Weight?

Your concern and stress are understandable, and you’re right that it does take a while for a custom made wedding gown to arrive in the store once it’s ordered. So if you want to go that route, you should start thinking about buying a dress as soon as possible (you’ll need time for alterations too).…
