BY GAJLE DUGAS NEA Woman's Editor NEW YORK—(NEA)—No matter what the dress you pick for your wedding day (formal informal, daytime dress or suit), you'll find de- j signers this year have created beautiful wedding clothes for every type of wedding. You may spend as little or as much as you like, have a big church wedding with everyone you know present or just a small affair attended by a few friends and relatives. If you decide on the big wedding, it follows that your gown will be floor-length and formal. But this year, your gown is most likely "to be white with just a mist of color (as in filmy white over the palest of pinks) and the headdress will look more like a tinj> hat than it has in past seasons. There are many beautiful bouffant nylon tulles and nets, most of them lavish with lace, most of them worn over layers of wide and spreading petticoats. Laces specifically have importance, particularly in designs where there is some draping. Satin is most succesful when it's used as a foundation for lace'or tulle veiling. For the very youthful bride (in her late teens).' there is special attention in the way of gowns at the new mid-calf length. Otherwise, the liked length is the ballerina which is becoming nearly classic for the very young bride. They want skirts that are easily managed as they trip down the aisle. The traditional train, tnerefore, is shrinking to become shorter and fuller, more bouffant. But even though the train doesn't really sweep the floor, it aids in creating the pretty picture every bride wants to present on her wedding day. There is less straplessness this year, less of the veiled, bare shoulder look. The strapless gown has been succeeded by a much more discreet and therefore prettier open neckline. Ther are lots of scoop necklines,, or individual cuts for open necklines. Empire lines are important to youthful bridal - gown, coming through best when they're done in supple tissue silks.
