My Advice

 

 

Do you wish to keep your wedding look sensual or casual, but still celebratory? My suggestion is to choose a gown with soft construction, which means the fabric you select is critical.

 

For understated yet elegant, I recommend silk crepe and crepe blends; these fabrics are versatile in terms of draping, embellishing or tailoring and perfect for featuring elaborate accessories, special jewelry or extravagant flowers.

 

For daring and provocative, I recommend silk charmeuse; one of the most glamorous and luxurious fabrics, it was a favorite of Hollywood sirens such as Jean Harlow. However, silk charmeuse as well as jersey and chiffon are body-conscious and therefore not suitable for every bride. For a more forgiving yet still softly constructed fabric, choose a gown made of georgette.

 

In all fabrics, a narrow cut always strikes a nice balance between moods.
