Wearing a Strapless Dress for Your Wedding

Congratulations! Your fiancé has popped the question, the date has been set and you have a vision of where the wedding needs to take place, what kind of band will be playing, who you’re going to invite etc. The only question is what are you wearing? The bridal fashion industry gets pretty deep with a lot of designs to choose from. You can pick dresses from all kinds of different price points and the designs are basically limitless.

When picking out a design for yourself, you will also want to think about the dresses that the bridesmaids will be wearing. If you’re looking for some great dresses, do go ahead and check out Scanlan Theodore stores and enjoy the sheer amount of choice that you are presented with.

So, what are some of the reasons why you might opt for Strapless gown?  The primary point is that strapless dresses are beautiful. This is the first thing that you will notice. Because of the sheer elegance of strapless dresses, it’ll be an easy choice for you to pick this form of dress over all the others. We aren’t trying to say that strapped dresses aren’t nice but only that strapless dresses are very popular for their less fussy appearance. The style is really quite popular, and you only have to type wedding dresses onto your search engine to see for yourself.

Another reason why you will want to wear strapless for your wedding is that they are affordable. Removing straps and sleeves removes an element from the gown that will need to be tailored to fit and embroidered. Both of these things are reasonably expensive and omitting them from your wedding dress can save you quite a bit of money. If you go with the correct retailer, then you will find that the dresses are also made very well.

Another reason for getting yourself a strapless dress is because it is a fairly modern concept. Until very recently most wedding dresses actually had sleeves. Removing the sleeves made the dress feel a bit more modern and simpler. Though the strapless gown has a hint of tradition, it is also very revolutionary.

Although strapless gowns are extremely popular there are certain disadvantages to wearing them as well. For example, they can slip. This is the unfortunate truth about any strapless gown but if it catches on anything when you are walking, when you are dancing or doing any sort of movement it can result in the dress falling down. This seems pretty funny on the surface, but the truth is that is anything but funny if it ever happens to you. It is more embarrassing than anything else.  Strapless gowns can also unfortunately show off tan lines. If you recently went on a beach vacation and got yourself a nice tan, then a strapless gown is going to make those tan lines on your shoulders be up front and center. Of course, with a little hairdressing magic, this can be covered up.
