What Is A Wrap Dress?
The wrap dress is the modern version of the classic wedding gown. A wrap dress is basically a dress with an open front with either a front closure or a back closure, made up of one or two layers of fabric, which are stitched together to form a full length dress. These dresses can be made in several different ways depending on the taste and style of the bride and her family. A traditional wrap dress looks like a traditional wedding gown, but it has a back zipper closure instead of a traditional back buttonhole, the dress’s hemline is higher than the shoulder and has an additional layer of fabric along the side for added coverage. The sleeves are usually shorter than other types of wedding dresses and usually come down just below the elbow and the dress itself hangs straight down to the ground. The back is usually left open to expose the dress’s full front. This type of dress can have a full train or a short one.
Traditional wrap dresses are more casual than a formal dress. This type of dress looks good on women of all ages. Traditionally, the bride should wear a white dress with ivory lace on the bodice and ivory lace trim around the skirt. White and ivory are the colors of traditional wedding dresses. A long white veil should be worn over the eyes and over the dress, to make the dress look longer. Long sleeves and a train make the dress look longer and give it a more formal appearance. A veil does not always need to be a wedding veil but the bride must choose one she likes.
If the bride does not have a lot of money to spend, a traditional wedding dress can be made from several different fabrics and styles. Cotton and chiffon are very popular materials for this type of dress. Silk and satin are also used to make a wrap dress. These fabrics can be made to order and they can be made to fit the body perfectly. A bride may choose from a variety of lengths and hemlines, which will depend on the style and the budget of the bride and her family. This is the perfect choice for a bride who wants a classic yet modern and elegant wedding dress, with the beauty and warmth of traditional wedding dresses but without the high cost.
