My advice – pick a dress to fit the setting.
If you’re getting married outdoors in the heat of summer, it may not be smart to wear an ultra-formal dress with layers of tulle. And vice-versa – a wedding in a traditional sanctuary doesn’t really scream barefoot bride and flower crown.
While I believe each bride should decide what she wears on her big day, try to envision how it will look in the venue. The formality of the venue and event should ultimately help decide your attire on the big day.
