As many brides know, shopping for a wedding gown often ends up coming first, early into the journey of wedding planning. Once a bride finds "The One," all bets are off and the entire wedding is designed around her special dress. Ivory and lace? Go romantic. Clean white and asymmetrical- Modern. Softly layered chiffon- destination wedding. While these are not meant to be strict rules by any means, the wedding gown can offer a solid sense of direction that can really jump start the creative and decision-making process in order to start planning a wedding.
Speaking of gowns, Shopbop officially announced its new Wedding Boutique today. After sifting through their online look book this morning, I have to say that I was pretty impressed by the collection of wedding dresses available. The beauty of a boutique like Shopbop is the sheer variety of wedding gown designers and styles for a bride to choose from. You aren't limited to just ONE fashion designer, or ONE specific look in one particular bridal collection.
After exploring the new Wedding Boutique, I ended up spending WAY too much time daydreaming about what sort of wedding each of the beautiful dresses could inspire. Ultimately, I ended up grouping some of my favorite gowns and short wedding dresses into four major themes: Modern, Romantic and Destination Weddings, and Civil Marriage Ceremonies.
