For many of us, the dress is one of the wedding elements we have been dreaming about and planning for since being a little girl. Over the course of your life, maybe it has shifted from a big fluffy number with a tiara to an elegant streamlined column dress and back to something fluffy but this time with cowboy boots. All, that to day, it’s a big deal so how do you go about choosing a dress for your adventure elopement? Here are some helpful hints!
Choosing a dress for the weather
– If your ceremony is taking place during a colder season or during a sunrise when the temperatures are lower, the name of the game is accessories. You may need to wear some thermal leggings underneath, so consider that as you try on dresses. Choosing a pair of bubble gum pink leggings that peak out from under your dress could be a fun touch or if you want something more subtle, nude leggings are also a great choice (here’s a great example of a cold weather ensemble

Make sure you feel gorgeous in it! – Your dress should reflect who you are. If you love color, this is not the day to banish colors from your wardrobe. Let those vibrant reds, golden tumerics and alpine lake turquoises come out to play!
