The wedding dress is your most important purchase. It can be stressful. These are some tips to help you choose the right wedding dress.
Shopping for dresses should be a fun experience.
Many brides end up disappointed their first time shopping for wedding dresses. Shopping can be a nightmare because of confusion about appointment times, unfriendly shop assistants, or dream dresses that don’t fit properly.
You should allow yourself enough time to shop and add fun elements like lunch or drinks. Don’t be afraid to walk away if you aren’t completely comfortable with the fitters in the bridal boutique. It is an expensive investment to buy a wedding dress. Boutiques must make sure you are treated well and feel valued. Even if you’ve never considered it before, an experienced fitter will be able to suggest styles that are right for your body.
Your wedding dress should match your dress.
When choosing your wedding dress, think about what kind of wedding you would like. What season are you choosing? Is it a formal event or a casual beach party? Is it in a historic building or a beautiful garden? You might consider making your wedding theme dress. Some brides will go to great lengths to find the right dress and then incorporate that into their wedding theme.
Find out what flatters your body type.
There are many styles and cuts to choose from, so everyone has something. It is important to find something that highlights your best features and draws attention away from those parts you don’t like. These are the key points to remember:
- Empire line dresses will lengthen shorter legs
- A drop waist gown will make up for a shorter waist
- V-necks look great on larger brides.
- Flat chests look great with detail and gathered material around the bust
- Horizontal lines increase the body’s width, while vertical lines lengthen it
Do not try to cover up the areas of your body that you do not like with layers of structured fabric. This will only make them more noticeable and create a chunky appearance. You don’t want to feel self-conscious on your wedding day.
Many brides make the error of purchasing a too-small dress to lose weight. While you may lose weight before your wedding, it is unlikely that you will lose entire dress sizes. It is better to purchase a fitted gown and plan lots of fittings near the big day to make any changes.
High fashion is not for you.
You can be sure that your wedding photos will not be as modern if you purchase a trendy dress. Choose a gown that you love and that makes you feel beautiful. It may also make you look less beautiful than you might like. You’re better off adding your style to a basic dress with accessories and jewellery than taking a look from the wedding runways only to regret it later.
