Besides choosing the groom, the dress is probably the most important component of any bride’s wedding planning! Picking the dress can be an intimidating process. After all, there are so many bridal shops, so many styles and price points, so many designers. And how do you know that you will love your dress forever, always proud to display your photos on your wall? How can you know you have picked the absolute best dress design for your body type and personal taste? Well, while you can’t try on every single dress in the world, and you might have to work within your budget, some careful research can help you find the perfect pick for your fairy-tale day.
First, it is important to know what is in fashion - you probably don’t want to be too much of a style rebel on your wedding day. In 2017, you are going to see an interesting new trend for your shoulders: bridal capes and flowy, streamer sleeves. This trend will be delightful for all of you gorgeous brides with a spring or a winter wedding! Bows are back - bows in the back, in the front, and all over the place. If you aren’t that into bows, maybe you would like to play with this year’s trends in necklines: both deep-V necklines as well as very high-collared necklines will be making a resurgence this year. Check out this article on The Knot to read more about this year’s trends.
Sometimes you just have to see the dresses on someone rather than look online, in magazines, or on the rack. And while trying on dresses is delightfully fun, it can be extremely time consuming. The perfect compromise is going to a fabulously fun dress show! Wildflower Bridal in Asheville is hosting two trunk shows this spring 2017, one from March 24-26 and the second from April 1-16.
After the dress, the venue is probably the most important decision you have to make about your wedding. You need a place that will hold everyone you plan to invite. Plus a place that has the atmosphere that you long for.
Anywhere in Asheville is perfect for a wedding, it is so beautiful in this stunning mountain city. Sadly, it is hard to have a wedding in the middle of the town square. Luckily for us, there are lots of lovely wedding venues in Asheville! One of our favorite places in Asheville, the Biltmore, offers several stunning wedding venues, from the intimate setting of the champagne cellar at the winery to the house and gardens itself. Another stunning and classically styled wedding venue, with just a hint of rusticity, is the Omni Grove Park Inn. If you are looking for something slightly more eclectic, slightly bohemian even, yet still overlaid with class, you will fall in love with the space available for weddings in the Grand Bohemian Hotel.
With all the work you put into planning your wedding, and with the hope that this is the only time in your life you will ever plan your wedding, you will want to immortalize it through some stunning photography. Any venue you pick will provide gorgeous backgrounds for all the wedding poses you could ever desire. If you have the time, though, you should make a quick trip up on to the Blue Ridge Parkway for some stunning backgrounds for your shots.
