While the bridal gown has gone through some serious redefining the past few years, the traditional is proving a definite mainstay as well. Since Kate Middleton's walk down the aisle, the high collared gown with long sleeves and a full skirt has made quite a comeback:.  So how do you know if you're a traditional bride?  If everything you touch is timeless, refined, sophisticated, consider yourself  traditional. A Hermes scarf and cashmere turtleneck could be your everyday signature look.
Your Dress: An A-line or sheath either strapless or with bateau or V-neck. You love any fabric that has understated elegance like traditional duchesse satin and peau de soie.
Favorite Designers: Rosa Clara, Kenneth Pool, Carolina Herrera, Reem Acra, Amsale, Anne Barge, Peter Langner, Stewart Parvin
Your Venue: A mansion, country club or sprawling estate defines your dream wedding site.
Veiled: A drop veil tacked to the back of a bun.
Unveiled: A tiara of course

I have to agree with honey my heart. As much as these days "untraditional" sells big...Traditional still has a place in my heart for sure.
