Wedding Dresses for Different Venue Styles

Wedding Dresses for Different Venue Styles

There are many ways to choose what silhouette you want for your wedding dress. Whenever we work with brides at The Bridal Shoppe, we always encourage them to think about the venue! You want your venue and dress to complement each other so they look great. You look like you belong there, which is what you want, right? Your venue should be comfortable for you, so you should also consider the weather and location. Each of these factors can be satisfied with plenty of wedding dress styles!

We'll talk about venues that many brides get married at today and help you figure out what style of wedding dress will look best there! So let's get started:




Isn't it wonderful how warm and intimate garden weddings can be? Due to its romantic atmosphere, it's no surprise that this is one of the most popular outdoor venues. A garden wedding also has natural elements to consider, so you should wear a dress that's both romantic and eco-friendly. To stay cool and comfortable and to move freely throughout the terrain, you should choose fabrics that are lightweight. Delicate wedding dresses are best suited to the greenery. A heavy ball gown and thickly layered skirt are not recommended. Instead, choose lace, chiffon, or silky satin! This dress from Martin Thornburg would look perfect!

Most brides follow a set of rules for church weddings, so they wear more traditional wedding gowns. Church weddings tend to be more formal, so you should get a dress that stands out! A church wedding is a great place to wear big skirts and ball gowns, especially if they come with long trains. This stunning gown from Sophia Tolli would pair beautifully with a church wedding!

When picking a dress for a beach wedding, you have to think about a lot. If you're in a natural setting, you'll want a lightweight fabric that's breathable and airy. A super long train might not be the most practical if you're actually walking down the aisle on grass. Furthermore, beach weddings are usually far away. Because of that, you need a dress that's easy to transport and doesn't require a lot of maintenance. The best gowns tend to be boho and goddess-like, similar to this beautiful and unique gown from Libelle Bridal:

Barns make a warm, inviting wedding venue. You want a dress that reflects the laid-back atmosphere of these venues. Beautiful flowing fabrics like chiffon and lace offer comfort and beautiful movement! You'll feel more comfortable in an A-line or sheath silhouette. This particular silhouette would be stunning:

There are so many more options in an indoor venue than a church! Ultimately, it's all about the theme and formality of your venue. A ballroom, for example, is a place to dress elegantly and sophisticatedly. On these occasions, a modern silhouette and soft, luxurious fabric finish are perfect! Modern, stylish looks are simple, uncluttered, and minimal. We love how modern and chic this Enchanting gown is:
