After the pulse-pounding and exciting time around when you and your fiancé get engaged, the reality of planning a wedding begins to set in. From the bridal party attire to wedding invitations; you start to realize how many different aspects of your wedding that you need to begin thinking about. Most importantly, you want to be sure that when you are confidently walking down the aisle towards the man you are about to spend the rest of your life with, that you are wearing the wedding gown of your dreams. There are many decisions that a bride must make when she begins to think about choosing this very special dress. You want to be sure that your gown fits your personal sense of style, but also the type of wedding you want to have, all while making sure it looks fabulous on you.
Before choosing any wedding gown, you want to first contemplate the type of wedding you wish to have. This detail will have a lot to do with the style of bridal gown that you end up wearing. The formality of your wedding will help to drive the theme that you wish to portray as it helps to define your special day. Further, the formality of your wedding will help to dictate any other decisions you need to make during the wedding planning process. It is going to be very important for you to be content with what you have decided in the beginning, in terms of formality, so that your dress can properly match the style of your event.
If you have decided to have a very simple wedding that is not going to be extremely formal, you are left with much more leeway concerning the type of dresses that you have to choose from. Shorter, and even colorful wedding gowns, are very appropriate for less formal events. However, if you have decided to have a black-tie formal wedding, you will need to be sure that the wedding dress you are wearing is as elegant and opulent as the rest of your wedding.
There are many ways for you to ensure that your wedding dress is as elegant as you desire. An elegant wedding dress can be defined by multiple different styles. They can be long and flowing, or shorter and form fitting, depending on your body type and preferences. Whether or not you decide to incorporate a long train, the most elegant of bridal gowns are usually at least floor length. Again, the length of your gown is just another aspect that will help to add to the formality of your evening.
There are also many other elements to consider when it comes to finding the perfect elegant bridal gown for a formal wedding. When perusing your gown options you will want to take notice to not only the length, but the cut of the gown as well. Typically, gowns that are made with cuts, such as an empire waist, are much more formal than other types of gowns. If you are hoping to have an ultra-formal wedding, it is wise to search for a gown with an intricate and contemporary cut. It is also important to pay close attention to the gown's neckline. These days, many brides opt for lower necklines. However, a higher neckline can sometimes give off a more formal feel than a lower one. Just like with the length and cut of your gown, it is crucial for you to choose the neckline of your dress based on the formality of your event.
When choosing your wedding gown, it is most important to choose one that will make you the happiest. After all, you are the one that will be wearing the gown, and you want to be able to look back on your wedding with only the fondest of memories. While the dress and other decisions play a very large role in dictating the formality of ones wedding, it is often times the bride herself as well. How the bride carries herself, along with her attitude and everything else that she has done for her special day, will also help to determine the formality of the wedding.
Overall, while there are no definitive rules regarding which type of dress will be more formal and elegant, there are a few suggestions that a gown-searching bride-to-be may follow. The gown you choose to wear on your special day will help to proclaim the theme of your wedding to all of your attendees. Any style of dress can be made into a perfectly elegant and formal gown by how you wear it, and by the type of experience your entire day is going to portray. Therefore, to find the most elegant and formal bridal gowns, you want to first decide on the formality of your wedding and plan from there.

What happens when three women arrive at a posh country club gala wearing the identical gown?
If they happen to be June Johnson, Wanda Pate Jones and Barbara Johnson — who are as talented as they are lovely — they celebrate each other’s good taste by becoming a part of the entertainment at White on the Green, a dinner-dance marking the end of another successful year for the Denver chapter of The Links Inc.
While other guests enjoyed pre-dinner cocktails on the terrace overlooking Cherry Hills Country Club’s championship golf course, the three adjourned to a private room where they invoked executive privilege (event host June Johnson is a past president of the chapter) and appointed themselves the opening act for the entertainment and dance party that would round out the evening.
They checked out the deejay’s playlist, spotted a couple of tunes by the Supremes and quickly choreographed the dance and lip-sync routine that earned them a standing ovation from a crowd that included chapter president LaDawn Sullivan; Warren Washington, a distinguished scholar specializing in climate change at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder; and retired TimeWarner executive Gayle Greer.
“We had no idea each of us would turn up in the same dress,” June Johnson said. “So what else could we do but have some fun with it?”
The Denver chapter of The Links was founded in 1952 by Fairfax Holmes, Edith Hawkins and Geraldine Lightner. Today, the 58 members continue their legacy of community service by contributing some 5,000 volunteer hours annually to programs that include tutoring and mentoring students at Hallett Fundamental Academy, the Walk for Healthy Living fitness challenge and introducing young people of color to the arts.
In 2017, the Denver chapter will host the organization’s area conference, welcoming Links members from throughout the region.
Others taking part in White on the Green included federal Judge Wiley Daniel and his wife, Ida, a past president of the Denver chapter; Linda Williams, director of human resources for TimeWarner Cable, and her husband, attorney Larry Williams; the Rev. Timothy Tyler and fiancée Nita Mosby Henry, the senior vice president of human resources at Children’s Hospital Colorado; Sandra Roberts-Taylor and her husband, Tracy Taylor; Gaylene Harris of the Thomas Bean Foundation; Public Realty owner Verne Harris and his wife, Fabulous Functions principal Carla Long-Harris; Niki Gill and sportscaster Justin Adams; Burgess Services president Denise Burgess; Dr. Rosemarie Allen and husband Don Carlos Allen; Walter and Charlette Fleming; Janet and Eula Adams; Andria and Eddie Koen, the regional executive director of College Track; his wife, Mary; Dr. Janette Andrews and fiancé Rick Johnson; Toni DePass Baruti, senior business intelligence consultant for University Physicians Inc.; LaDawn Sullivan’s mother and stepfather, Denver County Judge Dianne Briscoe and the Rev. Gilbert McKenzie; and Carl and Jane Pigford with their daughter, Kaarin.
More and more brides getting married today are making wedding dress sections based on what is in style and fashionable rather than following the traditions. Traditional white and ivory colors of wedding dresses are a good choice and by far the most common choices as well. Some brides choose to buck tradition and wear colored wedding dresses. Black is a color that is becoming trendy.
Black wedding gowns can bring a spectacular look on your wedding. You can have different strategies to bring out the best and uniqueness for your wedding. A black dress can make a prefect combination with pastel colors. You can ask your groom to wear white tuxedo while you wear your black dress. When deciding on a black wedding dress, that does not mean you have to wear all black. Add other colors that can balance the black color of your dress. A black wedding dress with white accents is fashionable.
Finding a wedding gown that is black could be very difficult. Most of the bridal boutique sells a white, ivory or muted other color of gowns aside. On the other hand, searching online can help you but expect uncommon colors of wedding dresses to be more expensive. Most of the available wedding dresses are white and all the dark dresses, including black, are mostly made by undisputed designers. If you're having a hard time finding a gown in the wedding dress section, try to look at dresses from a prom section or other formalwear. May the find the You perfect black wedding dress there. If your search still has not produced a gown, you can have a professional seamstress make your dress. In that way you get exactly the style you want using the fabric and color you want.
When planning your wedding and choosing your gown, select one that reflects your character. Do not stick too much to the traditional ways in planning a wedding if you are not a traditional bride. Do it your way and according to your interest and you will be happier with the outcome.
It is of one's personal interest if a bride chooses a wedding gown that is black. She just needs to be comfortable with what she wears but at the same time she should be prepared for some objection from her family or friends. Even though you feel like wearing black on your wedding, you should also consult your fiancé on what his opinions are about your decision. Though your wedding gown is ultimately your decision, also remember that the wedding is not only for you.

I recently ran across a piece that researched labor and material cost of an expensive designer wedding gown. The reporter at first thought she was getting a deal because the price was several hundred dollars less than full retail. Her final conclusion, however, was she got ripped off because the combined total of material and labor was less than half the price she paid. I am on board with the facts, but–when it comes to getting a product to retail through traditional channels–the cost of labor and material is only the first step down a slippery slope. My response and some ideas to help you save money on your gown…
On the surface, the argument is convincing. Dig deeper and not so much. The costs involved in transforming raw materials into a finished gown at your local bridal shop are many. Aside from the material and labor to sew it into a gown, there are also three levels of mark up. Via traditional distribution channels, the designer / manufacturer sells to a wholesaler (i.e. distributor), which in turn sells to a retailer, who then sells the gown to you. Profit needs to happen at each change of hands:
1. The maker needs to get enough for the gown to not only recoup their material and labor costs, but also pay for sales people who meet with their distributors, marketing, other support staff, and general overhead. And this is only the first mark up.
2. The second mark up is when the distributor sells the gown to the your local shop. The distributor must recover what she paid for the garment plus operating expenses. And the cost of transporting the gown from place to place. And still make a profit.
3. The third mark up is by your local wedding shop. She has to cover her cost (which includes the two changes of hands–and corresponding cost increase–before her) plus pay her personnel to give you personal service; rent, electric, Internet, and phone for the store; advertising and marketing costs; and other overhead.
So what’s a bride on a tight budget to do?
Here are some ideas:
The dress style matters much more than the cost. Understand what feature(s) will help you look your best, and look for inexpensive gowns with those features.
Combine a sale with a coupon to get double savings.
Consider more economical channels than your local retailer. Online wholesalers sell at nice prices.
Buy on eBay. The sellers of new gowns have bypassed some of the above costs. In the case of used gowns, brides are trying to recoup some of their original costs, which means a bargain for you.
Of course there are pros and cons related to each approach to purchasing a wedding gown. That said, there are many opportunities for finding the gown of your dreams on a “DIY budget.”

Wedding gowns are more eclectic and beautiful than ever these days. Although there are trends every season, there are so many options available that each bride can create a very personal look. One beautiful way to spice up your bridal gown is with color.
Color can be used as a very subtle accent or as a bold statement. The gown itself can be in a hue other than white, or touches of color can be added to a white background. If a bride just loves pink, maybe she would be happiest in a lustrous satin gown in the palest of pinks. Certain skin tones will absolutely glow in a soft gold wedding gown . For a very traditional bride, choosing a gown in a color besides white or ivory may feel too risky, but there are other ways to get a little pop of color into your ensemble.
A lovely way to add interest to a simple white wedding gown is with a colorful sash around the waist, flowing down into tails in the back. Fabrics that are crisp but lightweight such as organza or silk taffeta are perfect for a sash. Long tails in the back of the gown add drama during the ceremony, and then can be bustled up with the gown for the reception. Having the tails layered over the dress makes for an especially pretty bustle.
Embroidery is another detail that can be done in luscious colors. Delicate floral embroidery covering the bodice of a gown is beautiful in a pale blue or pink. A very hot trend right now is bold scrollwork designs embroidered in black thread on a white gown . Brides who choose that look often like to have the motif from their gown repeated on the wedding cake. I have also seen magnificent hand embroidery around the necklines of simple silk gowns . For an autumn wedding, opt for petite flowers and vines stitched in warm fall hues. A very subtle but special effect is ivory on white daisies embroidered with a hint of yellow in the centers.
Brides who love sparkle can add beadwork in their favorite color to their gown . It is a fabulous way to create a completely custom look. Twinkling blue Swarovski crystals would be amazing scattered over an embroidered motif. Another great look is to add a row of crystals around the waistline of a wedding gown . Whatever color you choose, carry it into a stunning set of crystal bridal jewelry for a beautifully coordinated result. A very pretty look is to combine clear and colored beads in your crystal bridal jewelry. Great color choices include: blue (for your something blue), pink (for a feminine touch), and peridot green for a fresh summer look. A dash of color in your wedding accessories is also a fun way to jazz up an all-white gown .
One of the most innovative uses of color I ever saw was in the custom wedding gown worn by a ballroom dancer. She wanted a traditional white gown for walking down the aisle, but she also loved bright red, and hoped to find a clever way to accent her dress with it. The gown was created from layers of white silk chiffon and fluid silk crepe. Underneath all of the white layers of the skirt was a final layer of silk crepe in true red. When the bride walked down the aisle, she was a vision in white, with little flashes of red peeking out as the layers of her gown flowed and floated. Then for the reception, the entire white overlayer of the skirt could be removed, and she got to dance the night away in her one of a kind gown with a white bodice and a red skirt. It was an incredible wedding gown .
Adding a dash of color to your bridal gown is a terrific way to make the dress reflect your personality. It is a also a great idea if you want to make a simple gown more eye-catching. Not only can you make your gown more beautiful, but the color you choose can be used as a theme throughout your whole wedding to make it really show your style.
