Think of how Grace Kelly looked so beautifully elegant in a traditional wedding dress style that still looks perfect today.   Classical styles are the choice of most royal brides, simply because you can’t go wrong and of course they are especially suited to formal and majestic venues.

If you plan a very formal wedding, for example in a large Church or Cathedral, a traditional wedding dress is the perfect match for your venue.

Your gown will look simply outstanding against the elaborate back-drop of a Church.

The Traditional Style Guide

A floor-length dress, often with an A-line  or princess silhouette, in white or ivory, represents the archetype traditional wedding dress.   The secret to finding your own unique style for the day is to dress a simple basic outline up or down to create the bridal gown of your dreams.

Lace overlays have been a popular choice since Kate Middleton wore a beautiful, timeless design by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen to her 2011 wedding to Prince William.  Lace adds a wonderful soft touch of romance.  When combined with a beautiful lace veil, you have a traditional gown offering the perfect combination of classical formality and soft beauty.

Keeping it simple you can choose a tiny bow or light embellishment on the bodice to create a personal touch. 

Or if you prefer to make a bigger statement, then the sky is the limit for rich embellishment and layers of wonderful rich fabrics.

Don’t forget to complement your dress with a unique combination of accessories.  Adorn your hair with a more traditional veil and tiara.  You may decide to add a jacket to help wrap-up against cooler climes.

When it comes to your big day, traditional wedding dresses are the perfect, safe choice for looking uniquely beautiful, a choice that will stand the test of time.
