Wedding Dresses for Different Venue Styles

Wedding Dresses for Different Venue Styles

Here at Van Cleve Bridal in Pennsylvania, we always recommend that our brides consider their venue when picking the perfect wedding dress! In our experience, brides typically want different gowns based on what their wedding environment will look like. If you’re in the midst of planning your wedding and you’re unsure of what direction you want to head in for your wedding dress, here’s some inspiration based on a variety of wedding venues:






We’ve found that brides choosing to get married in a church tend to seek out gowns that are more timeless, classic silhouettes. We absolutely love this gorgeous A-line dress from Allure Bridals, complete with beautiful lace on the bodice and a high neckline that offers a modern touch.






If your wedding is going to take place on one of the beautiful mountaintops of Pennsylvania, perhaps you’re looking for something that’s a tad more bohemian in nature. We love this stunning design from Pronovias. It’s the perfect dress for a mountaintop wedding because the train will flow beautifully in the wind!




Because Pennsylvania also boasts some incredible wineries and vineyards of all sorts, many of our brides are planning these types of weddings! When your wedding takes place in an outdoor setting, opting for an elegant gown like this ivory dress from Sareh Nouri is perfect. It’s simple yet makes a statement that won’t compete with your backdrop! 



Rooftop weddings are such a gorgeous setting, and we think that a modern dress that makes a big statement is the way to go. This floor-length, fit-and-flare dress from Allure Bridals is the perfect dress for this venue, and the cap sleeves and lace embroidery are stunning.
