Merriam-Webster's dictionary defines elegance as:
"a refined grace or dignified propriety; dignified gracefulness or restrained beauty of style."
When you think of women who exude elegance, names such as Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, and Princess Diana come instantly to mind.
Their look was always so polished, so put together. They had the ability to wear simple styles and pull them off effortlessly. These women truly possessed "restrained beauty of style."
Elegance is as much attitude as it is about the dress. Having confidence comes across to others as "a refined grace."
When choosing a wedding gown, the focus should be less on the embellishments on the dress, but more about showcasing an inner attitude that radiates from veil to shoes.
