The Turtleneck Gown

Stealing the spotlight in our front window is our newest Alvina Valenta. We've tried it on, tested it out and it's ready to be worn down the aisle. It's very high fashion, and elegant with it's low back, bridal buttons and highneck (not a turtleneck like I really want to call it). Before we got this dress, I had planned to wear a gown with a high neck to my own wedding, so of course I'm overjoyed that we finally have this gown in our salon. If you're not a fan of the bow at the neck, even though it is stunning, no worries. It can easily be ordered without it. This gown is not for your average, every-day bride; it is for that girl that wants to make a statement and look stunning on her wedding day. Look out strapless gowns...the highneck has made it to Solutions.

Top 10 Advice on finding the DRESS!

  • Number One Rule: Be open minded! What you think reminds you of your grandmother's dress on the hanger, may in fact be the dress of your dreams.
  • Bring someone that knows your style better than their own. I'm sure the groom doesn't want to see you in something that your bestfriend would wear on her wedding day
  • DON'T PURCHASE YOUR DRESS ONLINE! You miss out on the whole experience.
  • Don't worry what the groom will think. If he loves you, he will love what you pick.
  • Have fun! Remember that you have been dreaming of this day since you were five. Don't let the decision put a cloud over your head
  • If you hate the little bow on the dress, ask the consultant if you can order it Chances are you can. Keep in mind (contrary to what the magazines always say) there might be a charge for it. It won't lower the cost of the dress.
  • Price vs. Love: If you love the dress, GO FOR IT! Don't settle for less on what your wearing for your big day. You can always take some of the budget from the centerpieces and so on. No one will know and we won't tell.
  • Research designers online and make a scrap book of styles that you like. Do keep in mind, that it may all change when you start trying on.
  • Save the group shopping for the mall. This should be a personal experience that you should only share with one or two.
  • When you find it, you find it. Don't second guess yourself or you will pick your second favorite.
