Future brides have faced so many changes in the past year. Some have decided to postpone their wedding until a later date, while others are simply not here for a robbery (we can sense that!). There is also the scenario of postponing the big celebration with family and friends, but holding a small ceremony on your original wedding date. For those who don’t want to wait to say, “I’ll do,” a virtual wedding is a new reality, even if you choose to securely distance some select family members and friends in your presence for an intimate ceremony. Thanks to the World Wide Web, the rest of your guests can experience everything online via Zoom, FaceTime or a good old Google Hangout. A virtual ceremony still requires a wedding dress to demonstrate your bridal style, especially if you are storing a previously procured dress on the street for a larger celebration.
Regardless of whether your virtual wedding is witnessed by a handful of guests or the original guest list, you want to stay true to your aesthetic, be it casual, funky, minimalist, or glamorous. Just because you share the moment with your guests on the internet doesn’t mean you should sacrifice style and feel less than your best. For many brides, a virtual wedding dress is an excellent opportunity to experiment with a look that you would otherwise not have adopted – a second opportunity to try a style that you tore up in the initial shopping process or use bold details to appear on screen to highlight. Some brides may feel that for a virtual wedding, they need to downplay their look in favor of a more relaxed dress that couldn’t be further from the truth. Anyway, if your taste is subtle or reserved, go for it! But don’t feel like you have to deviate from fantasy or drama. After all, it’s still your special day!
