Bridal Gown Part 3 – Necklines: {Greensboro Wedding Gowns}

There are many different necklines of a wedding dress that may interest you in your search for the perfect gown.

The first neckline is a Bateau Neckline. This neck line is a boat shaped line that is formed by being straight across from shoulder to shoulder. The Bateau neckline may also have a slight dip in the center at times.

Next is the Halter Neckline. This neck line is a style that has a bodice which ties behind the neck which leaves that arms, back and shoulders bare. This is a wonderful neckline if you want to show off your back.

We had been wanting to do a stylized photo shoot for some time now so when The Gardens at Gray Gables invited us to design a photo shoot for them we jumped at the chance and designed this vintage style shoot in their garden setting. Adding Elizabeth Larson Photography to the shoot brought the concept full circle. Of course, it takes alot for a huge endeavor like this to come together so thanks go out to many who contributed. Firstly, none of this would not have been possible without the beautiful grounds at The Gardens at Gray Gables. Danielle and her crew work continually to keep the grounds in meticulous condition and are always adding new and exciting elements to their property. Then to have Elizabeth Larson of Elizabeth Larson Photography capture the shoot just as we hoped, well that was just a bonus! Thank you also to our beautiful and very patient models Annika and Matt, to Oak Ridge Florists for the fresh farm table centerpieces and to Grand Rental Station for the linens, chair covers and family style farm table. We hope you enjoy the inspiration as much as we enjoy bringing it to you!

Bridal Gown Part 2 – Trains: {Greensboro Wedding Gowns}

Bridal Gowns are known for having beautiful trains of all types. Not many brides know the different styles of trains so here is a short guideline that will help:

There are four main types of trains that come on wedding dresses. These styles are:

The Sweeping train which is also known as the brush train. This train is normally less than a foot long and tends to just dust the ground. This style train became popular in the 21st century and is best for brides who want a train but nothing too long. The sweeping train is more known for causal weddings.

The Court Train which is the same length as the sweeping train but it extends from the waist instead of the hemline. The Court Train is meant to alter the silhouette and is meant to be seen from the side to identify if you like it or not. This train is normally 3 feet long.

Lastly is the Royal Train which is normally 9 feet or longer from the waistline out. The Royal Train is the type that you could be at the alter and it’d still be half way down the aisle. This type of train is meant for formal weddings and is also called the Monarch Train.
