Casual Wedding Dresses
These days, the Church is not the only place where you can have a
wedding. This can be done in the backyard, the beach or the countryside
and since such places are not that formal, it is only right to wear a
casual wedding dress.
But before you go out and buy one, you have to consider just how casual
do you want your wedding dress to be. Obviously, this has to do with
where the wedding will take place and the theme.
Just to give you an idea, if the wedding will take place during the
summer, an ideal causal wedding dress is a sundress. You have your choice
of a halter, thin strap or strapless top. It is better to get a skirt
that is short rather than long so it does not get dirty from sand or soil
when you are walking down the makeshift aisle. To complete the look, you
can even put a hat on instead of covering yourself up with a veil.
As for the material, you must not get a casual wedding dress that is made
from brocade, heavy silks or velvet because it is too heavy. You should
also only add a few embellishments to the causal wedding dress because it
also adds some weight.
The casual wedding dress should be made from flowing fabrics because it
drapes well and is less prone to wrinkling. Examples of these include
batiste, chiffon, charmeuse, crepe, damask, duchesse satin and illusion
However, if this is happening during the autumn or fall, this is the time
you can consider using heavier material. You will probably need a wool
jacket over the skirt to also help you stay warm.
You won’t have a hard time looking for a casual wedding dress because
this is available in stores and online. Just take your time checking
each one out and then trying it on. This should fit nicely and complement
with the theme for the wedding so you don’t look out of the place during
The key to finding the right causal wedding dress is dependent on your
body type. If you are boxy, you should find an outfit that gives the
illusions of curves. If this is not your problem, try to find something
that gets the attention away from these areas.
If you are still having a hard time, perhaps it is time to get a casual
wedding dress that is custom made to your specifications.
There are two things that make the casual wedding dress a good value for
your money. First, is the fact that this dress is much cheaper than a
traditional wedding gown. The cheapest one will cost less than $50 while
a branded one may well go over a $1,000.
Second, a casual wedding dress is that this can be used again unlike the
formal wedding gown that is kept away after use. This can be worn again
when you are attending a party or eating in a restaurant.
The casual wedding dress is great given that you are not limited to white
or ivory for your special day. You can get one that uses soft pastels to
bright blues and reds or even hibiscus prints. The important thing is
that you feel comfortable wearing it.
