One of the most iconic, and perhaps, most stressful, parts of planning for a wedding is finding the “perfect dress”. From “Say Yes To The Dress” to “Bridezillas”, the difficulty of finding the right wedding gown has been documented by TV and presented in movies time, and time again.
We know that browsing through endless photos online or trekking from one bridal gown store to the next can be, while exciting, frustrating and mind numbing. So before you get started with your serious search, take a glance at our guide to help you narrow down what you are looking for.
Having an idea of what you want, or even simply narrowing down categories by knowing what you don’t, will make a huge difference when you are actually trying on gowns.
First off, take a look in the mirror and figure out what body shape you are. Don’t know? There are many online sites where you can put in your bust, waist, and hip measurements to help you figure it out!
Or, you can always ask a friend! We women don’t all come in the same size or shape. Celebrate that in your wedding dress by finding the silhouette that will help you flaunt your unique figure. Once you figure out your silhouette, things get down to the nitty gritty details.
Do you want something smooth, sleek, and simple? Or maybe you prefer elaborate lace, embroidery, or beading? Perhaps you want a combination? These types of details are what truly differentiate each wedding gown.
Also keep in mind that something’s, such as beading, look good from far away, but may appear gaudy up close. Overall just remember that you should look, and feel, stunning in whatever you end up choosing.
