One of our favorite parts of wedding planning is dress shopping. Some brides have a vision of their perfect dress while others like to stay on trend or match the theme of their wedding. Either way, this is the time you get to focus entirely on yourself. So love every moment of the experience and choose the dress that feels just right.
As you start your dress finding process, it’s always helpful to know the latest trends. The Spring 2016 Bridal Fashion Week set new and unpredicted trends for the season.
