Overwhelmed by the vast array of bridal wear that’s currently on the market? If you want a unique, gorgeous wedding gown but don’t want to pay an outrageous price for it, take a look at Victoria’s Bridal Collection. This line is big on luxurious, classically feminine fabrics and elaborate embroidery and beading-and it’s also surprisingly affordable. It’s available at hundreds of retailers in nearly every state in the US, plus locations in Canada, England, and other countries around the world. Sizes range from 2 to 40, and retail prices generally run between $300 and $1000. Styles are designed to appeal to women of all ages and are suitable for everything from destination weddings to country-club receptions.
Before you hit the stores, visit the Victoria’s Bridal Collection website, http://www.victoriascollection.com, which showcases their full line of wedding gowns. The site is easy to navigate and will quickly give you a sense of the wide selection of styles, fabrics, colors, and detailing. You can search the site according to the features you want in your wedding gown: silhouette, neckline, and sleeve style. Or you can simply go to the “Products” page and choose from among 7 categories; click on a category and you’ll see page after page of beautiful bridal wear.
If you’re looking for a truly eye-catching formal wedding gown, you’ll probably want to check out the “Victoria” and “Dulce Mia” categories. These gowns have a fun, flashy “belle of the ball” style: wide skirts, lacy ruffles, and elegant detailing. For formal wedding gowns with a simpler, more traditional but still sumptuous look, you might prefer the “Modesty” and “Ritz” categories: long trains and flowing satin skirts predominate here. Regardless of your measurements, you’re likely to find a number of flattering looks under any of these categories.
Informal wedding gown styles can be found under “Elegante Destination” and “Ritz Informal.” As the category name suggests, “Elegante Destination” gowns are perfect for destination weddings, with an emphasis on sexy, strapless or spaghetti strap sheaths. “Ritz Informal” gowns are more traditional, but are also streamlined and simple. Some of the styles in these two categories are best suited for slender women; but if you’re somewhere between model-thin and upper plus-sized-that is, if you’re like most women-you’ll find plenty of styles to help you look and feel beautiful on your special day.
Your dream wedding might be large and lavish, or laid-back and intimate. When it comes to that all-important wedding gown, you might have visions of tulle and lace and beading, the more the better; or you might prefer a simpler kind of elegance. Whatever your personal style, Victoria’s Bridal Collection is worth a look.
