Choosing your wedding dressJanuary 7, 2019
One of your most importing wedding purchases will be your wedding dress. Buying your wedding dress can be a wonderful experience, but there are some points to consider when looking for the dress of your dreams.
- Shopping for your dress should be enjoyable, it’s a day many little girls and women dream of, but many women are left disappointed the first time they go wedding dress shopping. Sample dresses that don’t fit, unfriendly shop assistants, confusion over appointment times and dream dresses that look awful when they are tried on can all add up to a horrible experience. Fortunately, Bridal Secrets do everything they can to make that first shop fun and exciting!
- Give yourself plenty of time to go shopping, don’t try and cram dress shopping in during your lunch break or after work. If you’re not *happy* with the fitters at a bridal boutique – walk out. A wedding dress is an investment and at Bridal Secrets they make every effort to make you feel special, and their experienced fitters will also suggest styles that suit your body shape, even if you haven’t considered them before.
- Think about the type or style of wedding you are having when you choose your dress. What season have you chosen? Will it be formal, casual, a beach or garden wedding? Are you having a *themed* wedding? You might want to make your dress a part of that theme, or you might find the perfect wedding dress and use that to plan your wedding theme around.
- It’s important to know what style of gown suits your body shape the best. The good news is there are lots of different styles and cuts that there will always be something that suits your body shape well. Try and choose a dress that accentuates your good features while drawing attention away from the areas you don’t like. A Drop waist gown will compensate a short waist. The Maggie Sottero Tawny wedding gown has an intricate lace and beaded drop waist bodice with a fit and flare silhouette. V-Neck gowns are slimming and great for the *larger busted* bride – the Maggie Sottero Adaleine is a V-Neck gown with a fit and flare silhouette, and all over lace bodice with a tulle skirt edged in horsehair.
- Don’t be tempted to hide the parts of your body you don’t like under layers of fabric as it will only draw attention to them and make you look *chunky*. Make sure the dress you choose also isn’t too revealing – you don’t want to feel self-conscious and you don’t want your wedding photos to be something you are embarrassed about.
- Don’t buy a dress that is too small with the idea of dieting down into it, while you may lose some weight before the wedding, you are unlikely to lose a whole dress size. It’s better to buy a dress that fits and have some fittings closer to the big day, so any alterations can be made.
