A wedding is the celebration of true and endearing love between two individuals and the commitment they make to one another to live as one.
The wedding gown is a special gown to a woman. It is the outfit in which a woman chooses to present herself to her husband, the dress in which she commits herself to him. When we celebrate this intimate promise we make to our spouses it is only fitting to dress in a way that will celebrate the bride's personal style, be it modern, romantic, quirky or classic.
