A Letter From David

The Family Tradition continues. My passion for weddings comes from my family story that started in Italy. My grandfather owned a flower shop and was quite successful designing the flowers for weddings. My grandmother was a seamstress and made sure every bridal gown was fit to perfection. My aunt owned a bridal boutique selling and also custom designing and creating wedding gowns including my Mom’s wedding gown. I guess making weddings special is in the family genes. It is with great pride and excitement that I bring the beauty and style of fashion to the world of weddings. Welcome to David Tutera Bridal where every bride can float down the aisle with grace, elegance, sophistication and style. I am continuing to keep the family tradition alive and now sharing my love of weddings with YOU! Every bride deserves to look magical!

Don't Just Walk Down The Aisle... Truly Float

There are a lot more “I Do’s” than “I Don’ts” when finding your wedding gown. After you read the one hard-and-fast “I Don’t” that I can’t let you forget, enjoy discovering all the wonderful things you should do when picking the perfect gown for your perfect day!

I Don’ts for Finding Your Wedding Gown

Don’t ask everyone for their insight and opinions. This decision and moment is about you. It’s always good to include advisers you trust and you know have your best interest at heart – but try keep it small. It’s important you stay true to what you are feeling on the inside and not fall in love with a dress just because everyone else loves it and think it’s the best look for you. When you look at the dress make sure it’s what you feel and dreamed your dress would be!

I Do's for Finding Your Wedding Gown Online

Take note of the timeline needed to order your dream dress. Bridal Gowns take time to order and once received they may need to be fitted/altered by a local seamstress.  Begin early, but not so early that you second-guess your choice or your tastes change by the time your wedding gown comes. Familiarize yourself with the general terms of dresses. I have provided a guideline to assist you. Whats most important is to know YOUR body type and the right silhouette of the gown that will best flatter you and allow for YOU to be the most spectacular and memorable Bride you deserve to be.

Your Defining Moment: A Dress Cut Glossary

A-line is ideal for highlighting a narrow waist and skimming over thighs. An A-line skirt has a skirt that is fitted at the hips and gradually widens towards the bottom.

Fit-and-Flare is exactly what it sounds like, the top of the bodice is fitted, and the skirt bottom flares out similar to the A-line dress. The Fit-and-Flare shape is a universally complimentary style for most body types because it creates an ideal shape with a narrowed waist, and proportionately shaped hips.

Mermaid is characterized by its fitted style, which hugs close to the bride's body. Unlike A-line or Ball Gown wedding dresses, this style doesn't flare out at the waist rather, it flares at or below the knee, creating a mermaid bottom to the gown.

Ball Gown is fitted at the waist with a full skirt, which can minimize your waist and disguise hips, buttocks and legs. Known for its full skirt, the Ball Gown can make nearly any bride-to-be feel elegant.
