Weddings are all about the theme. You are always looking to project a certain aura for your wedding, so your dress is pretty much part of the ensemble. To get your dress right, you have to make sure it matches with the venues. And talking about venues, a wedding at a resort is without a doubt one of the best things to hope for.
So, what kinds of bridal wedding outfit matches a hotel resort setting?
Go for the right style. A hotel resort environment is all about style. You are in a mostly open space with crowds of people all around you, so go for a modern look with all the trappings of elegance.
Sheer paneling, off-white shades and classy embellishments are going to be perfect here. If you are looking to make a statement with your curves, then column or fish tail wedding dresses will do wonders for you.
Contrast nature and glamor. Most hotel resorts are set in locations with alluring beaches, fields, water fountains and appealing monuments. Since the reception will most likely take place outdoors, you are going to want to take advantage of the sense of space and natural atmosphere.
Go for very edgy necklines and find materials that tend to dance in the breeze. A veil is a great addition too as it works well with windy environments. If you are not one for veils, you could always let your hair fly in the wind.
Project a sense of rustic charm. Not every hotel reception venue will look quite like the other. You have post-modern settings and old castle type of resorts. Manor/castle-like resorts are quiet, stately and formal environments that call for classic elegance.
You are going to need a laid back dress for this type of venue, so avoid deep V-necks and too many embellishments. You are looking for a touch of class but in a very traditional type of way.
If possible, go for silhouettes that are very feminine and steer away from brazen displays of style. This is because a gown that is too modern in a manor setting will end up looking quite out of place in a setting with laid back colors and conservative glows.
Whichever kind of dress you are looking for, your local bridal store is always going to have choices for you. All you have to do is know how a hotel resort theme needs to work with the colors, trims and accessories you go with. There are any number of ideas to explore, so allow yourself room to experiment.
