Top 5 Wedding Dresses for Today’s Bride

For brides who love stylish, unique, and, extraordinary things, modern wedding dresses are the best choice. Modern weddings are flexible enough for brides to sport different types of wedding gown silhouettes, from ball gowns to fit-and-flares. It’s all about looking elegant and decent.

What Makes a Wedding Dress Elegant?

Clean lines, modern silhouettes, and chic details together give a wedding dress an elegant and sophisticated look. Making it a perfect pick for the bride to wear on her special day. If you want a modern, minimal and elegant look, you will want to look for simple fabric where the detail is focused on the cut and silhouette. Simple doesn’t always mean missing out on the details like lace, embroidery, or beads. Modern brides who want added detail in their elegant bridal dresses can find a design with a curve-hugging silhouette with pearl, lace, or beads placed evenly all around.

Here are some interesting tips to keep in mind, when picking a modern wedding dress for your big day:

To pick up the best style, do your research on what is fresh, trendy, and in the latest fashion. Let your bridal consultant know in advance what you are looking for so they can pull the right modern styles for you to try on during your appointment.

One of the key points of a modern wedding dress is the fabric and materials used to make it. Often the base of the dress is made from luxe materials like Mikado, silk satin, or crepe. Look for these fabrics to create a curve-hugging effect that will flatter you and make you look extraordinarily beautiful in all the right ways!

Since modern wedding gowns are often attractive and slightly different from traditional bridal styles, you may be doubtful if a gown in the bridal doesn’t seem like your style. While a contemporary dress can sometimes look simple on the hanger, once you put it on it can look beautiful. Keep an open mind with your consultant and choose a gown that you admire.

5 Tips for Choosing the Perfect Wedding Dress at the Demetrios 2022 Trunk Show

Here’s your chance to explore some of the latest collections of gowns at our Demetrios Trunk Show! From 7th to 18th October 2021, we’ll be hosting Demetrios at our boutique, where brides can come to try on a range of gowns including ones we don’t usually carry.

After wearing a gown designed by some of the top-class designers, a bride will truly look like a star on her big day. Every design available at the Trunk Show pays close attention to detail and quality, giving each wedding gown its unique look. For most brides, choosing a wedding dress is a lifetime affair. But before making the final pick, here are a few things you need to be clear about:

  • Find styles you like

Browse through bridal magazines and over the internet. Save, cut, and pin dresses that appeal to you.

  • Pick your Favourites

Look over the images you saved and see if you have any similar patterns and styles. Start there, narrow it down and make a list of the features that you know you would prefer.

  • Wear Proper Undergarments

Wear a nude strapless bra, etc to try on gowns. It’s tough to get a good idea of exactly how a dress looks when you have straps or seams in the way. Most of the bridal shops usually carry one dress for each style. Most of the time, a bridal consultant will help you in and out of dresses, making sure that each one is clipped in the right place. Also, you would want to wear a pair of heels that are similar to what you think you would be wearing on your wedding day.

  • Don’t forget to Purchase the Extras

The color of your dress can make a difference. At the beginning of your appointment, let your bridal consultant know what color you’re interested in. The sample dress you fall in love with might not be the color you are looking for, but you might be able to finalize it! Once you have finalized the dress, ask to try on a veil, headpiece, or jewelry. Accessories can sometimes add that extra bit of detail that might be missing. Since these shows are for a fixed time, so if time does not permit you can book a separate appointment to try on the accessories.

  • Come out of your Comfort Zone

Don’t say no to trying on new styles other than your favorites. Trust your expert during your appointment. They pick out dresses for brides daily and have a better idea of their choice. You may be surprised and pick a gown you least expected! The more you communicate with your bridal adviser, the better your experience will be. Be sure to tell them exactly what you want.

Wrapping Up

Once your dress is finalized, get confirmation about the estimated delivery date along with fitting and pick-up information. Make a list of all the items that you still require and keep everything in one place. When you bring your dress home, keep it safe from any kind of moisture and dirt.

Considering all this will give you a chance to be on the right track and grab a complete one-of-a kind gown from Demetrios Trunk shows are a special occasion for everyone involved, and the Demetrios Trunk Show is even more unique and special! So, book your appointment today.
