Hear the Wedding Bells

It goes without saying that getting married is about the most exciting thing to happen to us in our life. But there's a lot of planning involved. The informal wedding dress, a style growing more and more popular, can help eliminate some of the stress of finding the perfect "classic" dress. There are a lot of pros to the informal wedding dress, but we'll get to those later. First, take a look at what kind of weddings may be appropriate for an informal wedding dress.

You may now kiss the bride

With people coming out of the traditional wedding shell, more options are being explored in the areas of location, theme, and style. For example, I live in Florida where beach ceremonies are very popular. On any particular day, you can be taking a stroll on the beach and see a bride and groom taking their vows. And almost always, the bride is wearing an informal wedding dress, especially in the summer when a long elegant gown on the beach would be more than uncomfortable.

White bathing suits with a white wrap-around and an informal head piece are a simple and still elegant choice. A light summer dress is always a great idea for beach weddings, and they're comfortable and cheap! So why not?

Another place you're likely to see an informal wedding dress would be at an at-home wedding. Home means comfort, and what better way to be comfortable than in a white dress-suit, a semi-formal dress, or any simple white evening dress. This way, you can focus on the meaning of your wedding and your friends and family instead of worrying about your train getting grass stains on it.Other wedding locations where an informal wedding dress would be fitting are at a courthouse, a park, or maybe places where those brave enough choose to get married, like, while jumping out of an airplane.

And of course there are those who just want an informal wedding dress for their second marriage. You can still look just as beautiful the second time in an informal wedding dress.

Personality- that's why they love you!

Your options tend to be more open with an informal wedding dress. Not only are they usually cheaper, but you can usually custom make your own. Choose your own color: If you don't want the traditional white, you can opt for off white, black and white, red, rose, or pink, yellow, or any color you want! Fabrics are another choice you can make. Going with the classic lace, silk, and chiffon and still keeping it informal is possible. Other fabrics you could use are ones like hemp, cotton, or linen. The variety and mixtures are endless. You might as well have fun with it; go with your own personality. Show it off. Wear an informal dress that says you. The bonus? No other bride will ever look like you did on your wedding day.

Happily ever after

You'd look pretty funny going out to a fancy restaurant with your husband in your wedding dress. But you might just be able to wear your informal wedding dress again. If you had a beach wedding, take the wrap off and go for a swim on your honeymoon! If you wore a summer dress, there's no doubt you could find somewhere to wear it again. The informal wedding dress is one that probably doesn't have to sit in your closet collecting dust. A wedding is “our big day,” and I know how exciting it is. It's our day to shine, to be a girl, to be beautiful. Beauty comes in many styles, and the fast growing popularity of the informal wedding dress proves it.
