While we are ALL about rocking what makes you feel like your best self and while many dresses are pretty versatile and can work for many types of venues, you don’t want to be caught overheating in a ball gown on the beach or shivering in a slinky slip on the top of a mountain.
A minimalist wedding dress is perfect for a smaller, more relaxed ceremony. even though these dresses are characterized by their clean lines and simple silhouettes, their elegant fabrics, beautiful embellishments, and sexy additions like a slit or low back will still make you feel like a bride.
For brides who went with a civil or small ceremony the first time around, a vow renewal is your shot at a big celebration and that means a big dress! While your princess dreams may have faded by now, and a ball gown may no longer be on your mood board, there are still some statement-making dresses that are worthy of your formal occasion.
For the beach, think light, airy fabrics and even blush tones à la Malin Akerman to mirror the colors of the sunset. For the chilly mountains, think long sleeves, heavy beading and chic shrugs. Depending on what city your wedding is in, a city venue can denote sleek courthouse chic or dramatic with a cathedral length veil.
