What advice would you give to summer brides about their dresses?

The most important consideration is comfort. I recommend choosing a gown that will allow the bride-to-be to move easily—nothing overly constructed and heavy. It helps to have a smaller train, as this also alleviates excess weight, or even consider a short or tea-length dress style. Look for breezy and movable fabrics such as organza, English net, taffeta and satin-faced chiffon, which are so in-trend right now. Another unique fabric that I've designed with is linen, which is absolutely perfect for a summer bride.
