Details Of An Evening Gown

When deciding on an evening gown for the wedding banquet, brides-to-be often have a number of criteria to consider. Top on the list is whether to have a gown custom-made or to rent one off-the-rack. Both options vary and will depend on the budget one has allocated for evening attire as well as the lead time available prior to the banquet.

Other factors to consider would include :

  • The style of wedding i.e. casual or formal, local or destination, indoor or outdoor etc.
  • Is there a theme? Any colour or colours to focus on?
  • What textures and fabrics do you like e.g. lace, chiffon, organza and so forth?

Some other considerations :

  • Would you want to get involved in attire decisions for your family members as well as bridesmaids?
  • Do you plan to pay for the outfits of your family members?
  • Take note of the colours of the walls, carpet and stage of your wedding venue. Best to avoid blending in.

Be aware of the following too in the ‘new normal’ :

  • The SOPs set by the health authorities and what is being implemented by the designer or bridal salon.
  • Always best to fix an appointment rather than just walk-in.
  • Allocate additional lead time in view of some of the constraints that may be the result of having to adhere to SOPs.
