When determining your perfect dress, it’s important to remember that we all have different body types, personalities, likes and dislikes. Finding the perfect gown (that puts your best you front and centre on your wedding day) can be a bit stressful. How can you know what looks good on you and where do you begin?

Understanding the different options available to you is the best place to get started. Check out these infographics to verse yourself on gown-speak before you head out to the stores. Knowing the various silhouettes and neckline names can help communication with bridal staff to ensure they offer you options that you know you’ll love.

Spring 2017 Bridal Fashion Week on Instagram

The top designers in bridal have been unveiling their new collections at the spring 2017 Bridal Fashion Week in New York City. And what a glorious week it has been. This year the bridal rules have changed. Gowns are now more about personal expression and the versatility of the brides who want to throw caution (and past traditions) to the wind. Brides today have a different way of doing things, and they are definitely bringing sexy back. Check out some of these notable moments from the week.

Flirty and Fabulous


#WTW #WhatsTrendingWednesday Suit me up – “The Modern Bride” Although still a controversial wedding outfit, trouser (pant) suits have been seen all over the catwalks this week in New York during Bridal Fashion Week. For the non-traditional bride #spring2017 is all about structured suits with effortlessly tailored trousers in crisp-white as seen from designers like @houseofherrera. Other designers got even more creative with the silhouette. @naeemkhannyc offered a contoured all white beaded long sleeve jumpsuit while @moniquelhuillier showcased a softer ensemble, a strapless jumpsuit with lace overlay made complete by a delicate tulle train. This fashion choice has got split decision from the Diana Collins Team. It has left us wondering whether the white trouser suit can be just as chic, formal and impactful as a ball gown or if the modern choice is a fashion step too far? We would love to know what you think? #instablog #modernbride #trousersuit #nybfw #carolinaherrera #naheemkhan #moniquelhuillier #bride #bridalgown #weddingdress #wedding #weddingdress #weddinginspiration #bridalwear #bridalsuit #weddingsuit #IDo #weddingsbydianacollins #luxuryweddingplanners #luxuryplanners #luxuryweddings @lovemydress @spraepr @sweetpeapr

The Try Guys Try Wedding Dresses

You know The Try Guys, right? They’re Buzzfeed Video’s quartet of men who like to try a bunch of stuff that men typically don’t try, and they’ve received an unusual amount of Internet fame from it. They’ve tried it all. Women’s swimsuits, shaved armpits, edible lingerie, pregnant bellies, K-pop idol makeup, and of course, wedding gowns.

The Try Guys are silly, they cuss a lot, and they poke an extreme amount of fun at each other and whatever they’re doing at the moment. Probably not safe for work, but always good for a laugh.

100 Years of Wedding Dresses

The wedding gown, it’s a big deal. It’s always been kind of a big deal. And since it’s such a big deal, there’s been all kinds of fascinating fashion progress throughout the centuries.

If you go back further than the last 100 years, you’ve got dresses like Marie Antoinette’s 18th century full-coverage gown with panniers (read wide-damn-dress thingys).

And then there’s the dresses of today, like Vera Wang’s 2016 modern and evocative peek-a-boo gowns. The wedding gown has always been a representation of the bride. (Well, once upon a time it was about casting her family in the most favourable light, but it was still sort of about the bride.)

Over the last 100 years, wedding dress styles have been traditionally based on the popular styles of the day. If you were a bride in the 1920s, your wedding dress was probably short in the front with a longer train, and you likely wore a cloche-style veil.  These fashion-trends-of-the-day continued right up until around the 1940s when it became popular to revert back to the long, full-skirted designs reminiscent of the Victorian era.

Check out this fun Mode video showing 100 years of Wedding dresses. (That 1935 floor-length lace coat at 0:50 though. Wow!)

Gowns That Fit Your Body Type

As a bride begins to plan her wedding, the dress is what is to impress. Brides dive into bridal gown magazines and visit stores, looking for the latest trends and fashions to grace the aisle on their wedding day. However, the latest fashion may look great on a bridal model but may not suit the everyday bride. Women are beautiful in all shapes and sizes, so every bride deserves a dress that looks best and suits her body type! (more…)
