Your wedding location will have a huge impact on what your wedding gown should look like! That is why you must plan where you will have your wedding before you buy your wedding dress.
You can buy your gown first and then plan the rest of your wedding around it. Some brides do this especially if they are having a special theme to their wedding like a vintage or renaissance themed wedding to name a few.
But most of the time you want to know where your wedding will be before you buy your wedding dress.
Not knowing this information is one of the top reasons brides have buyer's remorse after buying their wedding dress. The dress they picked didn't work with the theme and location of the wedding they later decided to go with. Don't let this happen to you.
The wedding location site sets the tone for the formality of your wedding. Once you know the location, you will know what formality your wedding gown should be.
Ask yourself these questions about your wedding location, to get an idea of what direction your wedding formality is going. . .
I'm sure you are getting the picture of how your wedding location and your gown must work together to have a coordinated look.
There are some ministers who have a dress code for brides. Yes... you read it right. So you should find out if your minister has any restrictions regarding your dress and/or the wedding party.
This situation has come up before in my bridal alterations of business...
"Some brides found out after they purchased their wedding gown that the minister wanted a more modest gown, one without cleavage showing. So they came in to have me fill in the neckline of their dresses with a modesty panel."
My advice to you is... have that talk with your minister "before" you buy what you think is your perfect wedding dress, if you don't want any surprises later.
So your wedding location and knowing your wedding formality is important for you to plan out before you pick your bridal dress. Can you start to picture mentally, what your bridal gown should look like?
Taking the time to do this evaluation and planning for your wedding dress will assure you of finding your perfect wedding gown!
