Some brides want to go all out for their wedding day — giant party, tons of guests, and a super elaborate wedding dress. Others prefer to keep things a little more simple, especially when it comes to wedding dresses. If that sounds like you, you might want a minimalist wedding dress, rather than something out of your comfort zone. I'm all for encouraging people to take fashion risks, but I feel like a simple wedding dress is always a good way to go. You'll never have to worry about things looking "dated" in pictures years down the road (no offense to my mother's frilly dress circa 1991).

Brides-to-be have been thinking about their future wedding dresses for ages. In fact, I'm ages away from getting married, yet I still have a very vivid idea of what I would like my wedding dress to look like. It has to be something that fits with your personal style, makes sense for the venue, and is weather appropriate.

Throw in the fact that you also have bridal party dresses and groomsmen attire to coordinate and I bet a simple wedding dress is sounding better and better. Not to mention, another perk of having a minimalist wedding dress is that it gives you more flexibility to have fun with your makeup and jewelry, and isn't that the best?
