The wedding day is one of the most important days in our lives. There are important decisions to make about the venue, theme, photographer, decoration, and so many others, but for a bride, it’s the gown that probably ranks at the very top. I for one will always focus on the details when I am picking the style and selecting my wedding dress.
Luckily, you can select from many different materials and styles for your gown – lace, tulle and various classic silk fabrics, such as chiffon, organza, satin, and more. You can learn more about different wedding dress fabric options here.
The decision on what to wear can be based on whether you are having an outdoor or indoor wedding, the weather, and of course, your personal preference among other factors. But no matter which fabric or style you select, there are some other critical decisions you will still have to make.
Here are some other useful tips that you may find very handy.
Wedding Dress Silhouette
Make sure that you have the right wedding dress silhouette. Always value your personal choice and style, but remember to go for something that is going to flatter you the most. Yes, look at the current fashions and trends, but don’t select a style that won’t look good on you.
The Best Time for Wedding Dress Appointment
Try to make sure that your bridal dress appointment is early in the day. The store will probably be less crowded at this time, and so they are likely to give you more attention. As a result, the quality of service will improve.
Try Different Dresses to Find One You Love
The dress may look awesome on a manikin, but you may appear different in it. Try as many dresses so you are sure that you have the perfect gown. Be patient. You cannot take any chances here. It’s also a good idea to bring your camera along. Take pictures from different angles in different dresses and refer back to see how you look. However, many boutiques won’t let you snap pictures. So check in advance.
Make Sure to Wear Great Lingerie
You must wear good lingerie while trying the dresses. A lot of time will be spent in lingerie on the day when you try these dresses, so you have to feel comfortable in them. Get a new bra from a lingerie shop or a store where there is a bra fitting specialist. It doesn’t make sense to wear your everyday lingerie below a gorgeous wedding gown on your special day.
Don’t Buy Alone
Always have at least one person beside you, a friend or family member, whether you are buying the wedding dress online or offline. Make sure the person knows your preferences, and has great taste. You should also be able to trust that person. Don’t bring a team of girlfriends. Too many opinions will end up confusing you.
Don’t Worry About Sizing
You will find bridal gowns in different sizes. They can also be altered to ensure that the fit is perfect. If you are not comfortable, just select a design, buy the fabric online, and get your gown custom-made for you. This way, your dress will just be what you want.
