Bridal Gowns!” is always a common answer we get from our brides when asked to choose which type of gowns will create a lasting impression on their guests. Without a doubt, bridal gowns will indeed be making a grand entrance during your first march in, but it is actually your evening gown that leaves the strongest impression with your guests. As guests indulge in the gastronomic feast of your wedding banquet, you will be shedding your regal bridal gown and getting prepared for your second march in…

Now think about it for a second, which gown will you be wearing the longest during your wedding banquet? Or when you’re doing your table to table photo taking with your guests? Not to mention, bidding them goodbye at the end of your banquet? A good evening gown is important not only because most guest will be up close and personal with the gown, the comfort and fit is crucial for our brides to be able to move around at ease for her wedding too.

Due to Western influences, the bridal industry have always been focusing on white wedding dresses as it is common for their culture to purchase just one gown for the entire matrimony. When it comes to evening gowns, however, our Western counterparts prefer saving it for prom nights or red carpet events instead. This is rarely the case in Asia due to our culture and traditions, resulting in an ideal 2-3 gowns being picked on the actual wedding day that consists of both bridal and evening gowns instead.

At Z Wedding, we take pride in designing and creating our bridal and evening gowns from scratch. While it is always easy to simply outsource the gowns, we believe in doing it ourselves to better flatter our local brides’ silhouettes. By sewing our own gowns, it also mean that we have full control and knowledge of the material that we use. This allows us to be able to envision the style that best suit your silhouette, all while ensuring that you’re wearing the gown that truly suits your preference too. Afterall, we’re not here to just dress you up for your nuptials, we’re here to create a wedding style that’s truly yours only.

Choosing an unsuitable shade for your evening gown is a fatal mistake commonly made by brides. Factors such as the timing of your banquet, your wedding theme, destination, even your skin and hair color actually attribute to the chosen gown colors. Unlike a white bridal wedding dress that complements almost everything, it’s just not the same for your evening gown.

For example, if you’re having a garden themed luncheon, a dark colored gown (like navy or maroon) will be too much of a stark contrast as compared to pastel colored gowns for that soft, floral vibe. The same goes to how a forest green gown will not be ideal for your red hair, unless you aspire to be Ariel from The Little Mermaid. And let’s not forget how different colored gowns would flatter different skin tones… It’s all the little details that make up the big picture of your dream wedding!
