About a wedding dress!
As the last time we took a look at wholesale dresses in general, today we can focus our attention on a specific kind of wholesale dress- a wedding dress. It goes without saying that a wedding dress (which is sometimes also called a wedding gown) is one of the most important components of a great wedding ceremony.
Our ancestors knew it all well and brides in the past were required to wear a wedding dress which reflected their wealth and social status of their family in the best possible way.
That meant that while brides from poor families could wear their best church dress instead of the proper wedding dress, brides from the upper-class families were expected to attend their wedding in an exclusive wedding gown which was made from the best quality fabrics and rich materials such as silk, velvet and fur.
Nowadays can style and color of a wedding dress vary depending on a culture, religion and region of the country where a wedding takes place.
Why should we choose to buy a wholesale wedding dress?
According to the Bridal Association of America, the average cost of a wedding dress is currently about 1500 dollars.
Wedding dresses purchased for this price are usually expected to contain a lace detail as well as a small to medium amount of beading. Naturally, price of a wedding dress also depends on the material used and amount of handmade work put into its production.
While the price of a custom-made designer wedding dress can be anything from 2000 to 5000 dollars, it is also possible to purchase a simple wedding dress from chain bridal retailer for the cost of only 200 dollars or less.
However, the main advantage of buying a wholesale wedding dress is an extremely affordable price and many young women will not miss an opportunity to purchase their wedding dress for a price as small as only 80 (!) dollars.
What are the most important things to consider when buying a wholesale wedding dress?
As wholesalers usually sell their items off-season, you should remember that you need to purchase your wedding dress for a winter ceremony in the summer and the other way around.
All brides should also keep in mind that it is not only a style of wedding dress that matters, but they should also concentrate on the kind of the fabric used to make their dress.
Other important thing is to allow yourself some time when buying a wedding dress. We highly recommend that you start looking for your wedding dress at least six months before your wedding day to avoid any pressure.
Why are fabrics so important?
A wedding dress worn during a winter ceremony should be made from a heavier fabric than a dress you will wear for a summer wedding, otherwise it can create an extremely uncomfortable experience.
Dresses which are the most suitable for a summer wedding are those made from the materials such as charmeuse (which is considered very comfortable to wear), crepe, damask (similar to brocade, but lighter) or silk georgette (very similar to chiffon), while fabrics used to make a winter wedding dress should be heavier such as brocade, jersey, satin or velvet.
Tulle and organza are generally suitable for any season.
What is the current fashion on the market?
The majority of wedding dresses are sleeveless as well as without straps, the main reason being that they are much easier for the designers to made.
The most commonly used wedding dress in Western culture is usually that of a white color, though other shades of white such as ivory, ecru or eggshell color are used as well.
Interestingly, prior to the Victorian era it was common for brides to use also other colors for their wedding dress, including black.
A white wedding dress became popular mainly after year 1840, after the marriage of Queen Victoria during which she chose to wear a white wedding dress.
