Beautiful Back

The back of your gown should be as beautiful and interesting as the front. After all, most of your guests will see the back of your gown most of the time. Think about walking down the aisle, dancing at the reception, running to the car...

I think this gown from Casablanca has a beautiful back. When choosing a veil to go with a gown like this, think very long or very short. For an elegant and formal ceremony, a long veil the same length as the gown will add an ethereal quality. You can then remove the veil or change to a shorter one for the reception. If your wedding is less formal or if you are a petite bride. I think a veil that just grazes the shoulder would be spectacular with this gown.

Avoid choosing a veil that "hits" at the same point as an interesting detail on your dress.

On another note...stop in to see our new Dark Brown Tuxedo! It is great for the guys in your wedding.

September's Bride...a fresh approach to formal.

I'm pretty sure the back of my gown was the best. I had a lace jacket and you could see through it, to my bare skin. I really loved how it looked! Oh and have I mentioned that I LOVE LACE?
