What The Neck?

So a few months ago we got an email from a Bride that needed help with Jewelry and asked if we could style her for her big day.  
Her gown was sleeveless and had a V neckline.


 This is not her gown. 
It's just an example of the neckline that we're talking about.

For a lot of Brides, this neckline can be a little tricky. 
 A lot of Brides want to wear jewelry on every part of their body that is deemed acceptable on their wedding day.


Try to resist that urge. 

 The best kind of necklace to wear with a V neckline wedding gown is NO necklace. 
 You may be wondering why that's the case.  It's because it can be too much.  

When a gown has a V neckline, it can cover a large part of your d├ęcolletage.  Why do you want to clutter up the little bit that is showing with a necklace?  A V neckline without a necklace actually draws the eye up to your face and isn't that what you want?

 Remember "When in doubt, leave it out". 

 The fun part about not wearing a necklace is you can go all out on your earrings!  


Want to know a little jewelry secret? 

Turquoise jewelry on a Bride is to DIE for! 

Don't believe us?  
Ask Eva. 

 
No. This is not her wedding, but this look for a wedding is amazing!

  Eva can wear that necklace because that gown is strapless.  
If it were a V, it would be a no go! 

 So, does this all make sense? Let us know if you have any other questions about your jewelry and what kind you should wear with your dress. 

 We've styled them all!

Our Bride Anna

We love to work with Brides that have an imagination and want to take risks.


One of those Brides is Anna.

"I bought my dress off the sale rack and then Lydia completely changed the top of the gown and added some beautiful lace that I got from your store."


"My experience with the perfect dress was a great one. I think the dress I picked was one of the very first ones I tried on. I loved the beautiful skirt of the dress, and the lace I got to add to it was my favorite part. "



We LOVE the Bohemian style of her dress.


Her husband Rob is pretty cute too!

Travis J Photography did such an incredible job of capturing the feel and look that Anna was going for.


Isn't it every Brides dream to truly have a gown that is made for her?

Well, Anna and countless other Brides have been able to design their dream gown with us at 
The Perfect Dress.

"The ladies in your store were kind and helpful. I would recommend the Perfect Dress to anyone. Thank you so much for giving me my dream dress! "
Thanks Anna for letting us be a part of our special day!

Our Bride Amy

A little while ago, we received a wonderful letter from one of our favorite Brides.



Amy is one of the sweetest girls you will ever have the pleasure of knowing.

She honestly reminded us of a Disney Princess.

We were ready for the deer and birds to follow her into the store.

See what we mean?
Amy bought a clearance dress and, with the help of our Seamstresses, made the gown into the dress of her dreams.

It actually looked like another one of our gowns that was three times more expensive!

This girl knows how to shop smart!

She said in her letter:


I honestly can't say enough about my experience at the Perfect Dress. The size of the selection and the quality of each individual dress by far surpassed the dozen other stores I visited prior. Beyond the dresses themselves standing out from the rest, the staff  helped me feel right at home and was extremely helpful. Due to liking so many of the dresses, I had a tough time narrowing my options down to one. I turned to a handful of close friends and family members for help, but they ended up having vastly different opinions to which dress was my style or what looked good on me. I finally went back to the store by myself, and it was the staff that helped me make my final decision. 



The last part of that paragraph is the most important.

Everyone has their own opinion and the only one that matters is yours, so don't confuse yourself by involving everyone you know with this decision.

You know what you love.

Just trust yourself.

Amy's photographer, Whitney Lewis, captured some beautiful shots of her special day with, her now husband, Derek.


Thank you Amy for such a sweet letter.  

It was our pleasure to help you!
