Scanning through umpteen wedding magazines for the fashion savvy, one would caught notice of this recent movie that just hit the theater, "27 Dresses". The title "27 Dresses" definitely caught my eye. I was more curious of the 27 dresses being shown in the movie...
Don't we all (at some point in our lives) desire a fairy tale wedding? Where a mysterious, dashing, and charming Rajah or Prince will come and whisk you away to lands faraway? Wouldn't we like to spend our honeymoon in exotic Asia or classical Europe? Ugh. How so anti-feminist you might say. But really, I believe that even the most hardened anti-marital institution proponent . had or have such fantasies.
When I got home that night, I was also reminded of this episode from that successful 90s sitcom, Friends. In a borrowed wedding dress, Monica indulges her wedding dreams up to the point of wearing the dress even while doing the dishes.
Bottom line, what makes a timeless yet elegant wedding gown? White/ off-white, more luxurious fabrics instead of common ones are a must. It should also be floor length if reinforced by a train and a chapel-length veil. Ankle-length dresses with a veil will look tacky and oddly matched, and may be confused with the bridesmaids' dresses.
In the event of a wedding, everything takes a back seat to the bridal gown. Unless you're Rapunzel, that means your hair is included.
That shouldn't rule out the possibility of you going all out on your wedding day hair-do, however. It's just that certain details of your dress, like the neck and hem lines, need to be considered so everything about you looks well put together, not thrown together. After that, everything else.from the jewelry to the veil, follows.
Wedding dresses are getting revolutionized by style trends that result in fresh, yet extremely wearable pieces. The secret, it seems, is a fast-paced lifestyle incorporated into the wedding plans and details.
-Don't be afraid to experiment with makeup in the months leading up to the wedding. You should aim to have your makeup
choices made at least a month before the wedding so that you can be sure you do not have nasty reactions to new products.
