5 Myths About Bridesmaid Dresses

Planning a wedding isn't just about picking your date, securing your venue, and finding your perfect dress. There's a lot that goes into planning your dream wedding. One of the important tasks ahead of soon-to-be-married couples is choosing the attire for their bridal party. Bridesmaid shopping can be a ton of fun, but it's important not to over-complicate matters by believing some of the commonly held misconceptions about shopping for bridesmaid dresses in Palm Beach.

Wedding Gown Traditions Around The World

When you think of a wedding dress, what comes to mind?

Many Americans picture brides as visions in white - women gowned in spectacular white dresses adorned with lace, rhinestones, or other adornments. Wedding gowns come in a variety of different lengths and fashions, but the color is generally consistent. Though white is still the most popular color for wedding dresses in the United States, styles are beginning to change a bit as the wedding industry continues to evolve. Nowadays, it is not uncommon to find brides in ivory, light gold, blush, or other neutral-toned dresses. 

Of course, wedding dress styles are not universal - the color-schemes and trends we just discussed are primarily unique to our Western culture. In some areas of the world, brides look dramatically different than they do here in the States. This week, our bridal salon in West Palm Beach is here to take a quick look at some of the different bridal fashions in other parts of the world.

Generally considered the unofficial kick-off to the summer season, Memorial Day Weekend is often a favorite choice for couples and families looking to get away for a few days. If you're in the early planning stage of your wedding, you may also find that the holiday weekend is a great time to get married.

Weddings On Holiday Weekends

While some people are initially surprised to hear about couples who choose to get married on holiday weekends, the truth is that there are several benefits to choosing these dates. Since many people get three-day weekends for official government holidays, traveling to a destination wedding (such as for couples getting married in South Florida) may be easier. Since you may also get an extra day off for the holiday, you may have to take fewer vacation days for your wedding - and get to enjoy long weekends over your anniversary for years to come!
