The Joys of Finding your perfect Dress
By Jessica Klein-Hill
Imagining how you will look, how your partner will be looking at you, and how all your friends and family are gathered to see you walk down the aisle can be an exhilarating and also perhaps a daunting thought. Do you go A-line, empire waist, mermaid form-fitting, lace, high-neck, strapless, embroidered, long sleeve, long train, veil or no veil? The list can go on and on. So, we asked expert Britney Mlostek, owner of Infinity Bridal in uptown Bay City, to share bridal trends this season, “our collections are aligning with the very modern, clean bridal trends that have been popping up over the past six months. There is also a lot of romance that plays into this current trend with large patchwork and embroidered florals.” Infinity Bridal’s focus on finding the most flattering dress for your body type as well as working within your budget will make you and your family breathe a deep sigh of relief, Of course, the champagne doesn’t hurt either.
ON THE RADAR!
Mlostek’s tip to saving cash on your dream dress: “Your bridal gown should be a reflection of your personality, not your bank account. For the bride looking to find her dream gown without breaking the bank, be open-minded to purchasing a gown off the rack. This is not an option that is often advertised, but a bride could ask – and many times this can reduce the price of a gown by a couple hundred dollars.”
