A peaceful beach setting. A beautiful sunset along the mountains. A place you call home for one weekend and a place you will know forever in your heart. That place is no where close to your “real” home and where so many brides are finding their joy in destination weddings. According to Conde Nast, 1 in 10 brides will have a destination this year alone. An average that has been unmatched from previous years. Brides are now moving toward the coast and beyond – think Paris, think the Eiffel tower as your setting. That alone can take your breath away.
With the change in “home away from home” local – a brides attire will change as well. We go from the elaborate ball gowns, with exquisite beading and 10 ft train to simple and gorgeous gowns. The beach calls for flowy fabrics with details that will speak volumes in your pictures. The city scape calls for short t-length vintage lace gowns with a shoe choice that will kick with personality.
There is a place and space for everyone. It’s just finding it and making it your own.
