Where and when you have your wedding is your style guide.
Look at lightweight fabrics that breathe. Check out chiffon, organza, charmeuse, silk shantung and tulle.
This invites lush fabrics with more ornate embellishments, luxurious silk satins and heavier lace such as Battenberg lace.
Don’t wear a ballgown if you’re having a destination wedding. Choose a simple, gauzy gown that seems to float.
Acknowledge your surroundings with a simple style, perhaps an A -line. Consider a short dress.

This invites a glimpse of the past, so why not be
vintage-inspired? Think lace, perhaps in an A -line. Or go for glamour
in a beaded sheath.
Go full-out glamour with a grand ballgown and train. If
a sophisticated sheath is more your style, have one in a great fabric
with a small train.
