“You only marry once” we greeks used to say, so we want everything to be perfect in our wedding day (especially the females to tell you the truth). So if you are into a summer wedding, then we can give you some ideas which wedding dresses to choose according to your style.

Vintage Wedding

If you are an old classic type of bride, feeling that she is born in the wrong time then a vintage wedding is ideal for you. Choose some antiques and other vintage objects as decoration that will add an air of aristocracy and luxury with no big expenses.

You don’t have to pay a fortune for a vintage wedding, as long as you can “dig these treasures” from a vintage store and be creative with them. The sooner you start this “digging” the most likely is to organise a very successful vintage wedding.

What about the wedding dress… You have to look for an elegant wedding dress inspired from the 50’s and early ’60s where the lace covers the cleavage, or the ’80s with an accentuated waist.

Lace, crystals, pearls is the decoration you must look for and a three quarter sleeve.  Alternatively you can choose a voluminous skirt, paying special attention to the fabrics.  You need a simple but a shiny fabric that will complete your vintage look.

Country Wedding

If you are the type that loves the countryside, a country wedding is what you need. Not only such a wedding is incredible beautiful and special but you can save so much money from decoration, since mother nature offers a magic scenery.

If you don’t have any special place in the countryside you can always throw a wedding at a wedding estate.

The wedding dress must keep a balance between a classic and a casual type of dress, or not! The only thing you have to worry about is to wear a suitable dress for the place that the wedding takes place.  If there is grass or something like it, that your dress can make you trip then choose one with over the angles length or higher.

The Beach Wedding

The advantage of such a wedding is that you can be loose and comfortable in your most important day of your life. It is also a very low budget wedding because not much of a decoration is needed.  Plus the sea adds its own charm to the wedding.

Your choice for the wedding dress must have a simple silhouette, with a wide pleated chiffon skirt. On the other hand you can wear a simple mini dress, sand worries free, like a ruffled dress or something with no embellishments or textured.

A statement Jewlery can make the simple wedding dress look luxurious. Keep everything else simple. No high heels, no pumps, just nice flat shoes or espadrilles platforms (the must-have piece of the season) or even barefoot, why not!

The Traditional Wedding

If your dream is a huge wedding cake with all your loved ones around, toasts and a three course meal in a big ball room, then a traditional wedding is an one-way for you. This kind of wedding is a chance to celebrate this special day with friends and family.

The dress code for such a wedding is formal so you need an elegant, all time classic dress with a long tail and a stunning bust. If you are looking for something more modern then choose a draped dress with lace or an one shoulder dress.

The advantage of such a wedding is that the options are limitless. Complete your appearance with a beautiful bouquet and an impressive veil.
