Chicago Wedding Dress Guide
High Fashion for a Big City Wedding
Small town brides rarely get the chance to wear designer styles and edgy fashions. The good news is you’re having a wedding in Chicago. Enjoy the opportunity to wear the latest trends and push the envelope when it comes to style. What’s so special about Chicago wedding dresses? It’s all about high fashion when it comes to getting married in a big city.
First off, consult fashion magazines for looks that you love. You’re unlikely to find the dress of your dreams in a magazine, but you can definitely narrow down your choices to specific styles. This year, mermaid gowns, ballgowns and elaborate necklines have been spotted on the runway. Find out what you like and then start trying on dresses.
Visit at least five bridal salons. Go everywhere from high-end dress boutiques to nationwide bridal salon chains. Your Chicago wedding dress doesn’t have to be exclusive to your area. The key is finding a dress that matches the formality, style and location of your wedding. You don't have to spend a lot, either—if you find your dream wedding dress and it happens to be by a high-end designer, chances are their are affordable versions available too.
Getting married outdoors? Unless you’re getting married in the middle of the summertime, expect cool temperatures at night. When shopping for Chicago wedding dresses, look into accessories to keep you warm while you’re on the move. If your wedding involves a lake cruise, be sure to look into a delicate scarf to protect your hairstyle while out on deck.
Ultimately, your dress should express your personal style. Whether you’re into traditional gowns or haute couture designer looks, you can find a dress that expresses your city-girl style.
