Wedding season is right around the corner and that can only mean one thing for brides worldwide - decisions, decisions, decisions! With so many options when it comes to planning, cake tasting, color choosing, and one of the main things on their minds, the dress selection, modern brides are going over the details of dreams from girlhood with a proverbial fine tooth comb. And while plenty of blushing brides still have a vision of a traditional theme, as time goes on and the wedding world evolves, many future Mrs. are thinking outside of the box and aiming for a more signature, untraditional presentation. That’s where Tadashi Shoji comes in.

For the Bride:

Our bridal gown collection is the perfect mix of designer and affordable wedding dresses. The fabric options are also to be considered when thinking about the complementary textures involved and interspersed throughout the entire wedding. Our sophisticated bride can choose adornments that include lace and paillettes, like those also found in our beaded crinkle chiffon dress. One fine example of this is our Contrast Embroidered Lace Panel dress, which comes in a gorgeous sand and ivory combo, but is available in other colors for those embracing non-tradition. We also have a stunning Rosette Scallop Tulle Gown draped in exquisite lace and mesh details. The elegance and unique characteristics of each dress offer the perfect starting focal point around which to build a beautiful bridal party.




For the Bridesmaid:

The bridesmaids complement the bride’s look. Whether long bridesmaid dresses or short bridesmaid dresses, Tadashi’s designs are figure-flattering so that the women who are there to support their dear friend can focus on that task. It’s a matter of preference when it comes to what she would like the complete picture, literally and figuratively, to look like. We have long bridesmaid dresses as well as short styles complete with a color palette that matches the popular wedding colors of the season. Add a pop of bold color, with our Embroidered Lace V-Neck Dress with Ribbon Detail in Lotus Pink. This color ties in the peripheral accents including the bouquets and other floral arrangements. From pastels to jewel tones, the biggest dilemma the bride will have is choosing which color or colors in order to narrow down her choices! An easy remedy to that would be to have the bride envision the styles and colors she desires so that we can have them ordered especially for her on her enchanting day.

For the Mother of the Bride & Groom:

What about another very key component of the bridal party? The mothers! The verdict needs to be sought as to which mother of the bride dress and which mother of the groom dress will work best. Our Pintuck Jersey and Lace Cap Sleeve Gown draws attention to the poise in the already proud mothers with its sheer neckline that accentuates their posture. The dresses we have for the mothers will allow them to dazzle alongside their son and daughter on his/her special day. They all radiate regal qualities, while simultaneously offering the option of fun and flirty off-the-shoulder freedom.


For the Wedding Guest:

What would the day be without an audience to celebrate the details? The wedding guests of the families about to join together get to witness not only the love shared between the bride and groom, the celebration of both families involved and the anticipation of a journey through life together, but they will remember the beauty of the day in terms of how everything looked. Wedding guests also provide a beautiful backdrop to the occasion. Don’t know what to wear to an upcoming wedding? The Embroidered Banded Lace Cap Sleeve Sheath dress offers a feminine vibrancy symbolic of the joy for the happy couple. Our Chantilly Lace Boatneck Sheath Dress, which comes in a variety of colors, is the perfect choice for a guest to feel formal but merry.

Our designs, including the colors, forms and textures, take the bride’s day and help to create, with ease, a day she will never forget. With her chosen dress, a showstopping seamless combination of flirty and refined, and the seasonally color-enriched dresses donned by her bridal party (yes, including the moms!), she may even mistake her special day for a Tadashi Shoji fashion runway show!
