Finding a dream wedding gown can be a nightmare. After all, you don’t shop for wedding dresses every day. So, the pressure is definitely on when you go out looking for the perfect dress. You see all eyes will be on you and not to mention you want to look the best in the photos from your wedding. But it is essential to identify what perfect means to you. For some brides, a perfect gown means a ball-like flared dress. For others, it is simply a sexy sheath dress that fits beautifully. The choices are in abundance and overwhelming. However, if you have never thought about your wedding until now, don’t worry we’ve got you covered. Read on to find out how to choose the perfect wedding dress.
Sit, ponder and the find out what you like
It is not possible to choose a wedding dress for someone else’s liking. In fact, it is your big day and I am sure you have something in mind. Maybe it’s something you saw in a wedding magazine or a movie. No matter what you have in mind you have to give a fresh perspective to the thought. For instance, go back to all the magazines and tear out the pages adorned with beautiful dresses and then go online and go through every bridal boutique in your city or town.
You can also check Pinterest and explore all the options available online. Next, compile a visual file of all the dresses that you loved or take a screenshot and save them on your phone. The next step is to decide whether you want an open back, a sleeveless dress, a dress with laces or embellishment or just a plain silk dress with a voluminous fall. Figure out all the common areas of interest and then discuss all your ideas on your first appointment. This way even the buyer will have clear knowledge about what you are looking for.
Shop for a dress in your current size
Some brides are adamant about losing weight as soon as the wedding nears. But let’s just face it you cannot miraculously lose weight. And the bad news is, losing an inch or so will not make a lot of difference. So, instead of starving yourself to death, just eat healthily and make sure that you buy a dress of your current body size. After all, it is much easier to fit in a dress of your own size than a dress suffocating your body parts.
Shop Early But Not Too Early
It takes time to prepare the wedding dresses, especially when you want them to be perfect. So, make sure that you start looking for a dress at least four months ahead of the wedding. This way your wedding dress designer will have ample time to stitch the dress of your dreams. In addition to this, you also need to know that even after the dress is ready you still have to take out time for alterations. Therefore, make sure you plan accordingly and shop for the dress months ahead of the wedding. However, do not shop too early because the fashion trends shift instantly and nobody likes a wedding dress sitting in the closet for months.
Keep Your Wedding Theme In Mind
There is no simple way to say this but it is an obvious fact. I am sure you want a dress that coincides with your wedding theme. After all, you don’t want your wedding dress to be the reason for a crashed wedding. You see not all wedding themes are the same and you don’t want to make mistakes brides often make while shopping for a wedding dress. You could opt for a close or outdoor wedding. The choice is yours, but make sure the dress reflects or in more specific terms coincides with your wedding theme.
Be Open To Choices
I have seen several people picturing the perfect wedding dress and selecting a completely different one from what they had decided earlier. In fact, it is very normal to do so. Especially when you know the bridal consultants always come up with several options. And the good news is, it is your big day and every wedding dress consultant or designer would want the best for you. All in all, you have to be a little open-minded while shopping for the wedding dresses. So, keep an open mind and who knows you might find “the perfect dress” for your wedding.
