When wedding dress shopping, every bride envisions something different for their wedding day. Some see a bohemian desert wedding. Others see a sunset beach wedding, a mountain top elopement, or a traditional church wedding. While 100 brides might pick the same dress, not one of those ceremonies, receptions, or wedding details will be the same. Each bride has their own vision, design aesthetic, and their own personal style. All these things plus how they style their wedding gown is an expression of their élan.

It’s going to sound profound, but sometimes taking a glance inward reveals the answers.
