Attracted to clean lines, minimalist aesthetic, and of course, top-of-the-line craftsmanship, these wedding dresses showcase that no matter your style, you can go simple.

Princess

Princess gowns don’t always have to sparkle and shine! A full skirt that’s light or heavy on layers and makes a unique statement with a beautiful lace detail is graceful and grand.

Glamorous

Vintage- inspired with the allure of glamorous style of bridal fashion. Focus on showcasing that structured shape and fabric, which is the true heart of glamour.

Traditional

This traditional sleeve never gets old. While the lace details is a soft touch, its texture and details can bring a sophisticated sort to the front and center of the dress’ design.

Edgy

Bold necklines and daring angles will define for the true, avant-garde bride. Choose a dress that will turn heads- the ultimate statement for this bride.

Modern

This contemporary route might lead you to be all about texture. Uniquely shaped and high to low hemlines might bring a new and fresh take on the big day’s dress.

Boho

As a huge trend in the market, these simple, albeit individualistic dresses should still shine in a way that lets them do it all on their own. Say hello to flowy and unrestricted.

How to Walk Into Your Reception Like a Boss | Complete Weddings + Events | Jacksonville, FL

 

YES! You made it through the wedding ceremony! Now, it’s time for your first announcement as a married couple. Walking into your reception is ​kind of ​a big deal, and you don’t want to wait until the day of to figure out how you’re going to make your grand entrance! These days, moments like this are captured not only for your official wedding video, but also on a few dozen smartphone cameras, and possibly shared across multiple social media platforms, but no pressure!

No need to scour internet forums or frantically search YouTube videos for ideas. At Complete Weddings + Events Jacksonville, we’ve witnessed thousands of entrances through the years (some awesome, and some not so awesome). From choreographed dance moves to props, we’ve seen it all. So, we put together the perfect “How To” guide just for you to make sure you walk into your reception like a boss.

Don’t be afraid to be goofy. If it’s not a little awkward you’re not doing it right. You have to fully commit, and remember that everyone is there to celebrate YOU! When the guests see you having fun, it automatically sets the tone for the rest of the reception. Comedy is your friend!

Get the whole bridal party on board. The bride and groom are the main attractions, but it’s even better when the whole group gets in on the fun to build up the momentum for the new married couple’s big announcement! Encourage them to get creative, and props are always a fun addition. Sunglasses, hats, or switching outfits (pending both parties are on board) can elevate an entrance from bland to grand. Props help take some of the pressure off because there’s something else for people to focus on, and they help spur creativity!

Be yourself! Some people go for the shock value and others go for sweet and romantic -but whatever you do, make sure it feels authentic for you. At the end of the day, you want to be comfortable and able to enjoy YOUR moment to its fullest.

If dancing isn’t your thing, you can use dramatic lighting to take your moment to the next level. Complete’s lighting experts will help make your entrance all about you. From Old Hollywood with dim lighting and a spotlight, or neon flashing lights for the rockstars out there.

Now, let’s look at some epic entrances (and fails) to get inspired for what TO DO and NOT TO DO.  If being outrageous isn’t your style, here are some entrances even your grandma can get behind.

Let’s take a look at the the video that inspired people to start getting more creative with their entrances: The JK Wedding Dance Entrance. Granted this is a wedding entrance, not a reception, but with over 97 million YouTube views it’s deserving of a mention! If you have been been living under a rock and haven’t seen this yet, you’re in for a treat! It has it all – the whole bridal party, props, music, authenticity and most of all FUN! Enjoy!
