Whatever type of wedding you are planning, many brides choose to wear a special dress for the occasion. But of course, choosing your wedding dress is not something you do every day: indeed for many it will be once in a lifetime.
Here are some hints and tips that might help;
Try Plenty Of Dresses On
Just as it takes time to find the perfect partner, it takes time to find the perfect gown. Don’t be afraid to try things that don’t immediately appeal on the hanger. Dresses look very different once they are on a woman’s body.
Think About The Top Of Your Dress
A long, gorgeous wedding dress with a fancy hem may well feature in your dream dress, but it is important to remember that the top of your dress is what people will notice most. The majority of photos taken by your guests will be waist up, so it is really worth ensuring you take this into account.
Consider How It Will Look In Years To Come
Tempting as it may be to go for a ‘trendy’ look, you want your dress to still look lovely in your photos in 20, 30, 40 years’ time. Finding a gown that offers both modern and traditional features will make it more likely to stand the test of time.
Take Your Camera Shopping
If possible, take photographs of the dress you are considering from all angles. The view in a mirror is limited and it is important to understand how the dress will look (and photograph) from all perspectives.
It is easy to feel the pressure and become stressed when shopping for that special dress. Remember, whilst it is important to make the right choices it should be fun too!
