A beautiful wedding dress is what makes a beautiful bride. Having a dress that you love and that looks great on you is what everyone dreams of. We are sure you must have thousands of things planned for your big day from the venue to the food and decorations. But the dress is a completely different story.
The color, the style, the material!! Just planning for it is a struggle. When it’s time for dress-shopping you might get overwhelmed and confused. We don’t blame you!! There are so many options out there that it’s natural.
To make things easier for you we are here with the best wedding-dress ideas for the 6 most common wedding venues.
The Beach weddings
A beach wedding can be ideal for those who love nature and the beach. About the style of an ideal dress well, a sheath or empire waist wedding dress can be a great choice. About the fabric, it should be light and cool as beach weddings are mostly arranged in summers. A charmeuse or chiffon material can be great comfy choices.
The length should be short or a high low dress can also be tried. Try to avoid a long veil and heels as the veil will get dirty and the heels will sink in the sand. If you want a veil at any cost you can get a shorter one or detach it when you are done with the pics. There are ways to go around anything!!! The last thing you want is to have a dirty veil and heels filled with sand!
Try flats, flip flops, sandals, or maybe go barefoot to give a more earthy feeling to your whole look!
If you are someone who loves bling then we recommend you try a mermaid dress to make you feel like Ariel from The Little Mermaid.
A mermaid dress might not be the most comfortable one but if it fits you well and you are a big-time mermaid fan then you should get one. A lace and a detailed embroidered fabric will make it all the more pretty. Even a ball gown can be worn but only if you think it’s worth the struggle!
The Forest wedding
Forest weddings are the most unique ones. Close encounters with nature, trees, and the silence just make it very close to the heart.
A loose flowy dress, with stone jewelry, can look great for a wedding in the forest. You will look like an enchanted princess. And why shouldn’t you, you are the princess on that day so you should feel like one.
Flutter sleeves, very light lace, or embroidery if you want can also work well.
Bell sleeves can also give a mystical feel. An off-shoulder dress with a relaxed loose skirt can be perfect if you want to feel very light.
A shoulder bow dress with a mesh material and best of all, floral prints can be perfect to blend in with the greenery. If these aren’t trendy enough then a cropped top with a skirt will make a stunning two-piece. If you want the color to stand out then a champagne gown can be a great people pleaser.
If you are a very laid-back kind of a person then wearing a lacy top with hawk wear jeans might be tempting but it won’t make a memorable dress!!
We highly recommend you make the effort for finding a comfy dress that’s pretty at the same time. The hard work is always worth it.
The Grand wedding
This wedding can take place at any location on a massive scale with everything extra perfect like a Ballroom or a big hall with high-tech lighting and high ceilings.
For such a grand wedding the wedding dress should also be grand. The last thing you want is for your wedding dress to go unnoticed when everything else is perfect. A great option for such a wedding can be a dress which is hand embellished and has a long trail as you see in royal weddings. An off-shoulder snug-fitting silhouette with delicate beading can also help you make a statement.
A ball gown with a sweetheart neckline with rich embroidery can give a fairytale feeling. A tiered skirt or a buffy skirt can both be considered for such a gown.
If you are looking for a classic chic dress then a gown with a bow beautifully placed and an A-line silhouette can be the most elegant option. You will remind people of Jackie Kennedy!
If you want a vintage vibe then a beautiful gown with delicate beading or a lace gown can be great! Just imagine yourself making that grand entrance in a beautiful lace gown and a long trail!!!! If you are someone who loves drama then a Hollywood-style gown that is red-carpet ready can be great as well.
The Simple City wedding
A simple wedding can be ideal especially in the case of the Covid-19 pandemic where social distancing is an issue. It can be held at any small space where a lunch or dinner can take place. You won’t have a lot of people around you but a well-planned event and a whimsical dress will cover up for anything missing. You can opt for a sparkly, A-line gown with lace or sparkle if you feel like you want the extra attention.
A simple dress that is smart and fashionable can be a perfect match.
A great minimalist option can be a dress with a short trail and a sleeveless lace top. If you want some color you can opt for the color you like and can also get it a little glittered. A little glitter can greatly bring life to your whole look!
You can go for a simple gown with a light fall of fabric from the waist. Keeping it very simple can make it very elegant. A lace or simple embroidery can be added at the top if you feel it’s getting bland!
The country-side wedding
A relaxed atmosphere and a beautiful barn! What a combination. Such a wedding is ideal for those who are chill souls! About a wedding dress for this type of wedding Bohemian styled dress can be a great fit. If you add flowers to your hair that would be the jerry on top.
A country-side wedding will allow you to wear anything actually without thinking too much. You can unleash your creativity and be exactly who you are on that special day. Just avoid being too over the top as that would not suit the venue that much. A mini-dress with lace might make you feel like a fairy. A flowy A-line cut can also be a great option for you.
You can opt for a floral dress or even a maxi!!! The options are endless to be honest. A chiffon dress with ruffles, flutter sleeves, and wrap belts can also be used to spice up the dress.
Wedding at a very cold spot
A wedding at a snowy location or an outdoor winter wedding can make dress-shopping hard but we still have ideas for you. A long-sleeved dress is a logical choice. If it’s too cold then a beautiful fur scarf can be used. Fur will make your look all the more luxurious.
A fully covered dress with a lace top, full sleeves, and a short neck can be an elegant and practical choice. A sweetheart neckline can also be thought of if a lace top or a short coat is used. If you want something extra then a smart off-shoulder dress can be worn too. About the cut, you have many options even if the wedding is in a very cool climate.
A relaxed silhouette at the bottom or a trumpet skirt both will work perfectly. A hugged smart fit is another great idea. You can keep the dress very fitted or fitted at certain places which suits your body the most
If you want a very glamorous look then Satin can be a great material to embellish and lace-up. A V-neck is another very chic option when it comes to necklines.
In this article, we went through 6 popular wedding venues and how you can select a great dress for each. For a beach wedding it’s important you stay cool and avoid having too much fabric on you. At a very dramatic wedding, a big ball gown or a heavily embellished outfit can make a statement. At a simple city wedding, keeping it simple and elegant should be the focus and at a country-side wedding, it’s all about staying relaxed.
Forest weddings are for brides who love nature and want a dress that is simple and cool. Winter weddings require you to cover up a bit but still there is room for styling. We hope that these wedding dress ideas were useful and will help you find the dress that is best for you.
We highly recommend you speak to brides around you especially the ones that had a wedding at a place like yours. Take your time with dress shopping, ask your friends for help and wear what you like the most. What you love is the priority so even if it doesn’t quite match the venue that can be ignored as long as you like it.
