I think so. Maybe not as much as I thought it would, but I think so and primarily because it’s not white, it’s gold. It sounds strange, but in my head it actually makes my wedding feel more laid back!

Only in that it’s lightweight enough that I’ll be able to dance all night!

Hmm not really… the only thing I’m planning around my dress is my bridesmaids dresses and flowers to coordinate

I dont think it sets the tone, but I definitely think that it contributes to it. Your dress and venue have to have the same feel. You couldn’t stick Princess Diana’s dress at a backyard BBQ.

It would have to come first to set the tone, and I based my wedding around my venue (the first thing we decided on), not my dress (which came 8 months later!). It should reflect the formality of your event, but otherwise I’m not sure it’s so essential that it reflect anything else!

I’m pretty sure mine sets the tone. We booked the venue first, which is a very grand-like ballroom and the church is a Cathedral in the downtown area. I think that helps because many of us can wear different types of dresses but the venue helped to narrow down my dress. It’s satin silk, strapless with a dropped waist and ballgown. And there is beading and sparklies at the bust area. The buttons in the back are diamantes for a little glitter from the backside. I LOVE, LOVE my dress. Plus I’ve ordered a cathedral length veil with scattered diamantes around the edges. (That’s more info than you needed, so I apologize). I just love it so much!

In my case, the location set the tone for my dress. I thought beach, vibrant colored flowers, tropical climate….that led me to a dress that was long, flowy, and ivory to complement my skin and the vibrant colors I want in my bouquet and hair.

Nope, but my dress is pretty simple and could probably go well with many themes/locations

Absolutely! I unexpectedly ended up with this glamorous silk dress with a dramatic silhouette and cathedral train… visions of gardens, rustic barns and the like just didnt work with the dress… so we went with a more glitzy venue. I had a rustic venue as a top choice but I couldn’t see it with the dress. 🙂

Totally – I have actually changed the tone/style since I bought my dress!

Actually, I think it’s the opposite. We decided we were have quite a formal wedding, so the dress I ended up getting is very glamourous and quite formal. I did find a second dress that I also loved, but it just didn’t fit with our wedding. Had we been getting married on a beach or were having a backyard barbeque, I would have bought the second dress.

I think my reception location sets the tone for my wedding.  Actually, I picked my dress because I thought it went well with the venue. Is that kind of backwards?
