A Guide to Bridal Silhouettes

April 17, 2017 in

From fabrics to silhouettes to necklines and bustles, there are hundreds of terms when it comes to bridal gowns. We know it can all be a tad confusing when you are trying to nail down your dream gown, so we’ve broken down each silhouette to help you find what style you will look and feel best in!

This sleek silhouette features a snug fit through the hips and thighs and a soft transition out into a “trumpet” shape. Most commonly confused with the fit-and-flair (more on that in a little), the trumpet can be distinguished by it’s soft flair that elongates the body.


GOWN OF THE WEEK: Blush by Hayley Paige “West”

April 13, 2017 in

Our TGS Gown of the Week comes from the lovely Hayley Paige. Style #1710 “West” features a fit-flair-silhouette that hugs your curves PERFECTLY. A low, scooped back and head to toe sequin embellishment make this gown a down right show stopper. Available now at The Gown Shop Perrysburg! Give us a RING at 419.679.GOWN(4696) to get scheduled to see “West”.

Once you’re engaged, you may one to dive head first into bridal appointments to find the perfect gown! We’ve put together a list of things you should do before you even schedule your first appointment to make the shopping process as smooth as possible.

             1.Browse styles online

This one may seem like a no brainer but it is super helpful to have an idea of what styles are aesthetically pleasing to you before beginning your shopping. Rather than sort through thousands of styles on Pinterest, gain inspiration from wedding blogs that feature real brides! This will help with the overall vision of what you’re looking for. Style Me Pretty, Martha Stewart Weddings, and Green Wedding Shoes all have tons of real weddings to browse.

             2. Research the shops in your area

Every shop has a different style and price point. Do a quick search of which designers each shop carries to see if they are consistent with your personal style and your vision of your wedding gown! This will help narrow down which stores will mostly likely have your DREAM gown. For example, The Gown Shop Ann Arbor carries designers that are a bit more free flowing and bohemian inspired whereas The Gown Shop Perrysburg offers a little more drama and sparkle. Don’t be afraid to call and ask questions to make sure a store is the right fit for you.

      3. Nail down your budget

This is one of the most important factors. Make sure you sit down and sort down your finances before scheduling your first bridal appointment. This way you can be sure that your budget aligns with the prices of gowns offered. There is nothing more heartbreaking than falling in love with a gown then realizing it is way out of your price range.
