Wedding Dress Collections – Choosing the Perfect Wedding Dress
All brides want to look their best on their wedding day. Browsing through many wedding dress collections to choose the perfect wedding dress can be exciting, but also confusing. It is important that you have an idea of the look that you want, and that you check out collections by designers that create these specific looks. Here are some pointers on choosing the perfect wedding dress for your picture-perfect wedding!
Your wedding dress will be influenced by the venue. You can choose a venue first or find a venue that suits your wedding dress, but either way, they have to work together. Getting married on the beach? Then rule out princess dresses and long veils. Exchanging vows in a candlelit cathedral? Then don’t go for a short slip wedding dress that can be mistaken for a cocktail outfit. The overall look of the bride and the venue simply has to suit each other to be practical and effective.
Don’t shop at the very last minute:
If you leave choosing the perfect wedding dress too late, you may not find something in time or it may not be ready on time, and you’ll be stuck with an ill-fitting dress or the terrible wedding gown your aunties made for you. The best time to shop is around 8 – 10 months before the wedding. This gives you enough time to choose a wedding dress and to have it altered if required.
Know what you want:
Do your homework and browse your way through a number of wedding dress websites and bridal magazines. You have to have an idea of the look you want, and you also have to be fluent in the bridal gown language! If you don’t know the difference between a Basque waist and a Watteau train, it is time to learn more about the lexicon of wedding dress design. Don’t, however, get too stuck on your idea – take advice from bridal wear consultants when they suggest something that they may think could suit you. A lot of brides end up buying a wedding dress that they never thought would suit them. So take a chance and be adventurous – you may be surprised and look even more stunning than what you could have imagined!
Have a plan:
Once you have done your homework, and you know more about the designers and the look you want to create you can choose a few places where they carry the wedding dress collections that you like. Choosing the perfect wedding dress is easier if you don’t get overwhelmed by trying on too many dresses, so stick to a limited number of bridal wear shops that carry the designs that you like.
