A Lovely Evening Gown

Jun 01, 2018

Gone are the days when a bride made many changes into a number of evening gowns at the wedding banquet. Some brides still do but they are in the minority. There just isn’t enough time for a bride to mingle with friends during the dinner if she were to scurry off for a wardrobe change every now and then throughout the evening.

What we see instead now are brides choosing to have one really beautiful gown custom-made, a gown that is spectacular yet one that does not overpower her.

The evening gown should :

  • Complement the bride's personality.
  • Reflect her style.
  • Be easy to move around in as she goes from table to table greeting guests.
  • Look good in photographs.
  • Be sophisticated, elegant, stylish and not over the top.
