Wedding Dresses for Different Venue Styles

There are many ways to choose a silhouette for your wedding dress. Here at The Bridal Outlet, we always encourage our brides to think about the venue! It's crucial that your dress and venue complement each other on your wedding day.

 

Your venue should be comfortable for you, which means you should also consider the weather and location. The good news is that there are plenty of wedding dress styles that satisfy each of these factors!

 

In this post, we'll discuss potential wedding venues that many brides get married at, and help you figure out what style of wedding dress you need for this type of venue!

 

CHURCH WEDDING

For church weddings, brides usually stay within a set of rules, so they need to wear more traditional gowns. As church weddings tend to be more formal, it's best to wear something that stands out! For a church wedding, long trains and large skirts are excellent options, especially when paired with romantic lace.

GARDEN WEDDING

We just love garden weddings - there's something so cozy and personal about them! Therefore, it's no surprise this outdoor venue is one of the most romantic. Garden weddings also have natural elements, so you'll want a dress that's romantic and eco-friendly. You'll feel cooler and more comfortable if you wear lightweight fabrics that allow you to move freely. A wedding dress that's delicate looks best in greenery. Don't wear heavy gowns or skirts with a lot of layers. Instead, try lace, chiffon, or silky satin!

BEACH WEDDING

Beach weddings are definitely a hit in the world of weddings! A light-weight fabric that's breathable and airy is best for this natural setting. If you're walking down the aisle on sand, a super long train might not be ideal (though there are certainly exceptions to that rule). A beach wedding typically requires travel as well. Consequently, you'll need a dress that's easy to transport and requires little maintenance. Generally, free-spirited and romantic gowns are the best choice!

BARN WEDDING

For a wedding, rustic venues like a barn create a warm, inviting atmosphere. You should definitely choose a dress that reflects the laid-back feeling of these venues. It's great to wear fabrics like chiffon and lace because they offer beautiful movement and comfort! It's also super comfy to choose a silhouette that's more relaxed like an A-line or a sheath.

BALLROOM WEDDING

Your choice should be based on the theme and formality of the venue. For most indoor venues, like a ballroom, you should dress elegantly and in a sophisticated way. This occasion calls for a modern silhouette and soft, elegant fabric finish! Styles that are simple and uncluttered are perfect for a modern, stylish look.
