Here comes the bride, all dressed in white (well, maybe). Make sure you look utterly fabulous when walking down the aisle by selecting a wedding dress and flowers that scream, my “Vegas wedding.” While the big and poufy princess silhouette dresses are ideal for an enormous and traditional church wedding, there are several kinds of dresses that are more appropriate for a small, non-formal celebration. Read on to find out the best Vegas chapel wedding dresses that also travel extremely well!
1. High/Low Dresses
These dresses have playful hemlines. They are cut short in the front, usually exposing the legs, up to the knee (or sometimes mid-thigh). Their back hemline is floor length, making them unusual and fun; just like your chapel wedding. They are usually strapless and no frill, so packing them in a suitcase or carrying them in a garment bag on the plane makes for hassle-free travel.
2. Tea Length Dress
The length on this casual dress is perfect for a Vegas chapel wedding. It gives more traditional brides that classic bride look and feel. The hemline sits mid-calf, exposing the ankles and feet; allowing you to wear a great pair of heels! It can have any kind of bust line and can even be designed with cap sleeves for more coverage. In order for it to travel well, be sure to pick up one of these pretty dresses in any material except for silk, which wrinkles easily!
3. Empire Silhouette
Empire silhouette gowns are streamlined and sleek. They are rarely designed with any puffiness; and mimic the look of a Grecian goddess. Cut just under the bust; empire silhouettes are figure flattering for any form because they never cling and fall gently down the body. Usually full length; these dresses pack well because they are lightly lined and do not contain any kind of tulle or a bulky, heavy fabric. Simply place it in a garment bag and press it before sauntering down the aisle.
4. Cocktail Length
Probably the most popular among Vegas brides, cocktail length dress are fun, flirty, and a snap to pack. They are usually strapless, form-fitting, and short (above the knee). Many are embellished with sequins, beads, or have built in embellished necklines; making accessories not necessary to pack. They are light weight, take up little space, and rarely wrinkle if packed precisely.
In addition to your dress, you will need some flowers to complement the kind of gown you select. Since all of these dresses are simple, sleek, and fuss-free; your flowers should be the same! You can’t go wrong with carrying a classic but small bouquet that fits easily in your hand of red roses. They symbolize love and are a favorite choice among brides. A handful of daisies or even a single, full headed white hydrangea will complement all of the dress styles above.
Before you hop on the plane or take the drive to Vegas; be sure that you have the perfect dress that reflects your style, personality, and event that you have planned!
