Part of what sets Charlotte’s Weddings apart from other bridal shops is how much we (the consultants) listen to our brides.  From favorite silhouettes, to color scheme, to your wedding venue we ask you all about your big day and work our hardest to find you your dream gown. One factor that seems to trump some bride’s thoughts and visions during the search for their perfect gown is whether your dress should match the style/theme of your venue?

The Portland metropolitan area has a wide variety of wedding venues to choose from. Whether you are wanting a ceremony in the great outdoors, an intimate garden affair, or an elegant ballroom wedding there are many options to choose from.  So what should you do, match the venue or go with your favorite gown?  That all depends on what you in vision your wedding day to look like.

One common theme is a rustic-inspired outdoor wedding. For these types of weddings many brides ask for a gown that has lace, a fitted silhouette and an overall romantic feel to it. The designers we carry at Charlotte’s offer a full spectrum of gowns that fit this style.

Then there are the brides that go completely outside the box from their theme or style and pick a gown they love instead. Think of this—you are getting married on the beach and think you can only have the traditional beach wedding gown with a flowing skirt, short train and simple design. But if that style does not fit in with your aesthetic, then go with something unexpected.  Like a gown that will make you stand out and wow all of your guests.

Remember, it’s all about what you want and how you picture yourself looking on your wedding day. The reality is the gown you choose should always be the one you feel the best and most comfortable in and your guests will think you are a gorgeous bride in whatever gown you wear. So call us today to schedule an appointment.  We would love to help you find your dream gown for your big day!
