Staying up to date on the latest wedding dress trends is important to many brides as they prepare for their wedding day. After all, styles can change quickly and sometimes drastically. Just look at your parents’ and grandparents’ wedding pictures for an idea of how much wedding dress styles have changed over the years.
Understanding the latest wedding dress trends isn’t just about the latest fashion crazes though. As the bride, you are the focal point on your wedding day. All eyes are on you from the moment you walk down the aisle until the last moment when you make your grand exit. Knowing recent wedding dress trends can help you choose a dress that will match the style of your wedding!
The Treasury on the Plaza is the perfect backdrop for your St. Augustine wedding. The building’s long history is the perfect bridge between the past and the present, allowing for weddings that feel both timeless and uniquely modern. Here are four recent wedding dress trends that will compliment your wedding here at The Treasury on the Plaza.
1) Gowns For a Classic, Romantic Wedding
You can’t go wrong with classic romance on your wedding day. Who wouldn’t want a wedding that they can look back on 50 years from now and still think is stunningly beautiful? With its classic Romanesque marble columns and neutral color palette, The Treasury’s Grande Ballroom is perfectly suited to a Classic Romance theme.
When looking for a wedding dress to match the Classic Romance theme, Jackie Kennedy and Kate Middleton come to mind as style icons. A-line and ball gown silhouettes with delicate beading or lace typify their perfectly poised, yet glamorous style. Throw in a few sparkly accessories and a dramatic veil and you’ll have a look that any style icon will surely approve of.
2) Vintage & Art Deco Weddings
Vintage weddings capture the elegance of a bygone era. With The Treasury on the Plaza being a 1920s-era bank, the venue creates the perfect atmosphere for a vintage-themed wedding! The old bank vault, which has been converted into The Vault Bar, has an ultra-cool Art-Deco/speakeasy vibe.
Vintage wedding gowns tend to fall into two separate categories. Many bridal experts consider full lace gowns to be the quintessential vintage look, while others, perhaps with the Art-Deco style in mind, prefer something with intricate beading. We don’t think you can go wrong with either look!
3) Hollywood Glitz & Glam Wedding
With its high-tech lighting, grand entrance, and lofty ceilings, The Treasury on the Plaza is the perfect fit for a glamorous Hollywood affair. And if you really want to feel like a star, we offer several different Hollywood Special Effects Packages to enhance your wedding.
Finding a red-carpet-worthy wedding gown to go with your Hollywood Glitz & Glam style is all about the drama. Whether it’s texture, beading, or a va-va-voom silhouette, your bridal gown has to stand out and capture attention.
4) Wedding Gowns For Modern Minimalist Weddings
Are you a no-muss, no-fuss kind of couple? If neutral tones and clean lines are your kind of thing, a modern minimalist wedding might be the perfect fit for you! The classic color palette of The Treasury on the Plaza has served as the perfect backdrop for many minimalist lovers. To create this look, consider using white, ivory, black, or cream in your color scheme. These colors can be incorporated into your ceremony draping, linens, and floral, and signage. Candles can be the perfect accent to add a little bit of drama and romance to your minimalist wedding decor.
Modern, minimalist wedding gowns are anything but boring! When choosing the perfect wedding dress to fit this style, its all about fabric and fit. As the name suggests, minimalist gowns have minimal detailing, like lace or beading. Instead, these gowns have subtle details like buttons or low backs. Consider adding unique modern accessories, like a leather jacket or fabulous shoes to complete your look.
5) Natural, Bohemian, and Rustic Weddings
Just because The Treasury isn’t an outdoor venue, doesn’t mean you can’t bring the outdoors in! Many of our fabulous St. Augustine and North Florida florists and event decor professionals have worked their magic to turn The Treasury into a paradise full of beautiful greenery and organic elements.
Are you on the hunt for the perfect boho-chic gown? Typically, these styles are less structured, featuring soft, flowy fabrics, and have a touch of whimsy. With the right wedding dress, you can channel style icons like Kate Moss, Florence Welch, and Sienna Miller on your wedding day!
