Contrary to what others might say, the most epic moment at every traditional wedding is when the bride walks confidently and elegantly, donned in beautiful apparel, to accept the groom’s proposal in the presence of both families and friends.
The groom’s first reaction is always priceless, depicting how privileged he is to spend the rest of his life with his bride.
The bride is usually accompanied by the bridal team, matriarch, and other close women in her family as she makes one of the crucial decisions that will change her life forever.
Bridal style is tough to discern as fashion evolves, but as fashion lovers, we can attest that corset styles are timeless styles.
