Defining one's style is a lifelong endeavor. But in the context of weddings, you're on a much shorter timeline. It's also a much more daunting task; it's no exaggeration that The Dress is the most important piece of clothing you'll ever wear.
This is why scores of resources are now available. Guides on wedding style-from what you wear to how you design-are at your fingertips. You can hire experts or punch in a search online. You can also read our Style Guides, right here at Simply Bridal.
This section offers style guides in many different categories, and new guides will appear frequently. Each guide includes ideas, tips and inspiration. We define "style" loosely, meaning you may find guides on wedding dresses one week, and guides on shoes or hairstyles the next. We'll include advice on decor, too.
Bookmark this section, visit us often. Our style guides are here to help you determine what bridal aesthetic is right for you.
