Heading off for the wedding dress hunt? Here are some things you need to know!
Try Not To Get Caught Up In the Hype
Yes. The details of the wedding dress do matter. But remember to choose the best silhouette for your body before you start narrowing down on the tiny details. Things are going to be much easier if you have the help of someone who is experienced in picking out wedding dresses. Also, if you have a wedding scrapbook, this is where you should turn it open.
Do Not Arrange Your Appointment Later In the Day
Do remember to make the appointment to meet your wedding dress designer early in the day. It is not only an energetic and a fresh start to check yourself out in the wedding dress of your dreams in the perfect light, it is also a great way to sidestep the usual hustle and the bustle of the bridal dress store.
Do Not Make the Mistake of Forgetting the Top Half
Most brides go crazy when they see that flowing perfect wedding dress. But unfortunately they only look at the part down from the waist. Although it might be exactly what you wanted from the lower part of your wedding dress, you might want to pay more attention to the top half as well, since this is what is shown in the wedding pictures and what people tend to remember.
Pick a Timeless Gown
Do not pick a wedding gown just because the trend says so.Make sure to look for elements that would make you feel elegant and sexy at the same time. See if it adds to your beauty, not otherwise. Once you have picked your ideal match you can let go of the trendy wear. Plus, it guarantees to never go out of style when it fits you like a dream.
Try Out As Many Options As You Desire
There is nothing wrong in pestering the sales personnel for a bit. After all it is your wedding. Therefore do not hesitate to try out whatever you fancy. Try to resist the impulse buys and quick and regretful judgment. Do remember that dresses look different on you than they look on the hangers.
But do not overdo it. It might only end up confusing you. The damage could be irreversible and it would probably stress you out.
Do Not Stress About the Sizing of the Wedding Dress
It is normal for a bride to get stressed over the size of the dress at the first fitting itself. Do know that the bridal gowns come in twice or thrice the regular size and remember not to pay attention to the size but only the design and maybe the price tag. You can always fit yourself in the dress when you get it altered by the designers.
ShouldYou Bring The Girlfriends With You?
There is nothing wrong with getting input on how you look in each wedding dress. But do make sure it is from the ones you trust and the ones that are close. Do not let your high school math teacher tag along to your wedding dress hunt!
