Pair silhouette styles with your dream venue to find the perfect fit from Savannah’s bridal boutiques



ON THE WATERFRONT

Whether in the sand, on a dock or overlooking the marsh, a waterfront ceremony calls for light and airy layers that will sway with the ocean breeze.

HISTORIC HOME

With ornate columns, imperial staircases, crystal chandeliers and hidden gardens with marble sculptures, historic estates are full of drama. Consider a gown with defined structure and elegant details that complement the architecture of the venue.

THE  DRESS

This Innocentia gown from Camellia Bridal is replete with ruffles to bring that “wow” factor while also making you feel like royalty. At J’Adore Bridal, reveal your feminine side in this Justin Alexandar Signature gown with a statement-making bow.



MODERN + INDUSTRIAL

Renovated warehouses balance historic character and charm with a modern aesthetic. A sexy and sleek gown is only enhanced when juxtaposed against exposed brick walls, wood floors and open ceilings.

If you like this look, Charles H. Morris Center, Georgia State Railroad Museum and Savannah Station should be on your list of venues to scout.

THE  DRESS

Try this chic strapless option by Madison James at Love Curvy Bridal. And minimalistic certainly doesn’t mean boring with this backless favorite by Made with Love at Ivory & Beau, far right.



AVANT-GARDE

Artistic, free- spirited and bold, anything goes for the avant-garde bride — and the more unique, the better. Express yourself with colors, patterns or other unexpected elements.

THE VENUE

A more whimsical setting such as SCAD’s Pei Ling Chan Gallery, Soho South Cafe, Art Tank at Cohen’s Retreat or The Mansion on Forsyth Park — just to name a few — may be the right fit for you.
