Finding the perfect wedding gown is a huge step in the planning process. Many brides have dreamed of this day since they were a little girl, others have rarely worn dresses before, but somehow, when you find your dream wedding gown, everything falls into place. One thing we recommend to brides as they search for their gown is to keep in mind the venue or destination of the wedding. Many times, this plays a key role in finding the gown of your dreams. There are certain gowns that truly go with the theme and venue of your wedding. It is important to keep and open mind, but also know your vision.

Here are 5 Venues & our Recommended Wedding Gowns:

1) The Rustic Barn Venue

 

It is no secret that this venue has become extremely popular over the past few years. Many brides are steering away from the traditional wedding hall to bring a more relaxed element to their wedding day. The barn venue is perfect for a bride who wants something romantic, layed back, but also beautiful. There are many different ways to “dress up” a barn venue to really make it an elegant look and feel.

OUR PICK FOR THE PERFECT GOWN:

2) The Destination Beach Venue

This is a fun and different experience that also creates a wonderful get-away for your closest family and friends. The beach wedding is stunning in it’s own right, because nature speaks for itself. The beauty of the ocean and the breeze creates a stunning look as your dress flows through the wind.

These weddings are some of the most beautiful! The outdoor, woodland wedding is whimsical, romantic, and etheral. This is another venue that speaks for itself by involving elements of nature to create a beautiful look. By hanging string lights, lanterns, and floral arrangements, this can be extremely stunning. This style venue also goes perfectly with the trendy bohemian look by combining a flower crown instead of a veil.
