When to wear a dress to your wedding is a personal choice.
Many couples opt for a bridal gown, a short, strapless gown that has a little skirt and sleeves to show off the shoulders.
Other couples wear wedding dresses that have been made to order and tailor-made, often for their specific style preferences.
If you’re having a little fun and want to be one of the lucky ones, here are the most popular wedding dresses in Birmingham, and some tips to make the best decision.1.
Black, ivory, or brown dress or coat, with a wide waistband, or white dress or jacketBlack wedding dresses are popular for a few reasons.
A black wedding dress is usually the one you get because of its natural look, said Ashley Jones, an assistant professor of design at Birmingham University.
Black wedding dresses can be styled up or down and they often feature intricate designs on the waistband and sleeves.
These are the best choices for people who love to wear their wedding dresses with a little flair, said Jones, who has worked as a bridesmaid and wedding coordinator for nearly a decade.
A white wedding dress can be very versatile and has a wide, flat neckline, a long skirt and short sleeves, she said.2.
Wedding dress with bows and tulle or with lace and ribbon, or with no lace3.
Wedding gown with sleeves that are short and straight (think tulle), or with long sleeves that go all the way up to the hem (think lace)A dress that has long sleeves and long skirts can look stunning, but don’t expect it to be a classic wedding dress, said Lorna Pate, an associate professor of fashion design at the University of Southern California.
A long, flowing gown with a long, flaring skirt is a great choice for couples who want to look and feel modern, she added.4.

Wedding wedding dresses or brides’ gowns (a wedding gown is often worn as a wedding present)A wedding dress that is designed to look like it’s being worn by a married couple is a unique and unique look.
“If you want to make a wedding look like you’re going out for the first time, you have to have a dress that looks like you want the bride to have the bride, not a bride with the dress,” said Pate.
This means wearing a gown that’s a bit different from the rest of your wedding day.
A wedding dress with a different style of ribbon can look great on the bride or the groom.
A wedding gown that is a bit too tight, a bit loose, or a little too revealing can also be a bit of a drag.
“You want to wear something that is pretty but is a little bit too revealing,” said Jones.
You can also wear a wedding gown with no sleeves and a dress with sleeves up to your knees that you can tuck into your shorts or pants.
If the dress is too long, you can wear a short skirt and a blouse underneath.
“If you have a bit more room, you’ll want to go with a bit less, because you can really see the neckline of the dress and it’s pretty, and that’s what the bride and groom are going for,” said Evans.
You want to keep it simple, too, she told Mashable.
The dress should be comfortable, but not too big.
A dress with an oversized skirt is often a big seller, as are dresses with straps or ribbons.
“We know that you want a dress like a dress, so if it’s not very big or too big, it’s definitely going to look too casual,” said Johnson.
A brides-to-be wedding dress might look great in jeans or a t-shirt.
But if you want something more formal, a wedding brides dress with the lace applique on is a must, she noted.
“There’s no better dress than a wedding dresses to wear to your first wedding, so make sure you’re not going to feel like you’ve got to choose between your dress and your brides name,” said Brown, the wedding planner.
You’ll also want to avoid a dress without sleeves, because that can make a dress look too big or overly revealing, Evans said.5.
