When imagining the wedding style, the first port of call for the young couple is usually the venue. This embodies the theme of the big day, has an effect on decorations, influences catering, the number of invitations, the ceremony, the accommodation options, and even the style of the wedding dress. Which wedding dress to choose to suit the style of the venue? Here are some thoughts to keep in mind.
The choice of wedding dress is the accumulation of so many factors, but before you get lost in the details, it is important to set the general concept of what you would like. The atmosphere of the venue provides a perfect compass for this, so we have compiled some classic wedding destinations, and some advice on which style really works with which location.
If you are planning to have your wedding in a castle or a manor house, then we recommend a more dignified, princess-style dress. This concept doesn’t just refer to the volume of the dress, the focus may be on a decided use of lace or on the decorations.
For a wedding held in the embrace of the highlands, we recommend a dress with a softer fall or a mermaid style with a simple approach, with just a little decorative lace or beads. In our newest collection are several special and royal materials which come to life in this milieu, which though it may appear cold or even stern at first sight, is, in reality, a place throbbing with life.
Would you like to exchange your vows on the beach with the gentle sound of the waves giving the background music? To reflect this atmosphere we have chosen several models which are light, airy, comfortable, and perfect for the beach!
Anita Benes created the SUNSET collection to give a place for these dresses, the secret lies in the fact that the dresses are made of two parts, a body and a skirt. “Swimming suits inspired the bodies, that is why I designed very light and comfortable pieces. The skirts appear in gorgeous soft flowing silk satin and satin muslin. The dresses are aimed at more daring brides, expressly for beach weddings, weddings close to nature, and outdoor summer weddings.”
Rustic, forest feeling
At the moment rustic weddings are enjoying their heyday, currently, they are the most popular and the style most often chosen. There are no sharp borders within this theme, from the evergreen classic vintage to greenery to shabby Baroque, every style can find its home within the category of rustic, and so there are no strict rules regarding the dress either. You cannot go wrong with the romance and charm of lace, fun, and not too formal styles.
The whirl of the City
Do you just love the buzz and colourful whirl of the city, is this the ideal wedding venue for you? If yes, then choose lighter styles, or daring, unconventional styles, even a short dress, classic clean-cut mermaid style, or an everyday dress that shouts chic.
The Mediterranean feeling- be it Italian or Spanish – is in itself a perfect “accessory” for a wedding, adding its distinctive stamp to the big day. If you would like to keep the southern style in your dress then vote for frills, generous laces dropped shoulders and romantic models.
