From dressy to more casual, modern to more classic, beaded or not, there's a world to choose from when it comes to wedding dresses. Here are just a few photos, to peak your bridal gown style interest, compliments of Ashley Elwill Photography. And if you're asking my opinion, well I'll give it to you: pick a wedding dress based on how you feel in it. The better you feel the prettier you'll look. That means if your wedding dress has been passed down for generations, or if it isn't your 'typical' wedding dress and the style isn't trending, who the hell cares. It has meaning to you and luckily, weddings aren't about what we wear. It's about that other person, the one that we are tying our lives to for. ever. and. ever. SO... you go girl. You wear a strapped or sleeved dress and you wear it like you mean it!

I believe that your attitude attracts whatever happens to you. The calmer you are, the happier — and better things will come your way.

Don't be afraid to cover up, to add some beading and lace, and to wear a regular bra on your wedding day. You will look beautiful, no matter what you wear, so there's no need to wear a style that doesn't favor your body. If you feel insecure about your clavicles? Cover em! Not really a tube top kind of gal? Pick something with sleeves or straps, just know you will look amazing!

Did you wear a non-strapless dress for your wedding? I'd love to see it! Use #sixpencestandard when you post your wedding photos to social media, or send me a quick email! hello@sixpenceeventsmn.com

Prosperity, Love & Happiness,
Josey
