27 Sep The Perfect Wedding Dress – Tips to Find the Dress of Your Dreams
The centerpiece of many a daydream, the wedding dress is everything to the bride to be. On your wedding day, you want to look and feel your most beautiful, so you’ll want to find the perfect wedding dress. No pressure, right? Shopping for the perfect dress is fun but it can also be a bit stressful. Here are a few tips that can help make the search a wonderful and memorable experience.
Look Beyond the Daydream
The dress you dreamed of as a young girl may not be the right dress for the woman you’ve become. Show up to your bridal consultant appointment with an open mind. The style you love may not love you. In order to find the perfect wedding dress, let your bridal consultant guide you to a style that will flatter your figure. An experienced consultant will know which styles will make you look your very best. It is not uncommon for the bride to be to leave the bridal salon with a dress she wouldn’t have even given a second look on her own but wound up being the dress of her dreams.
Room to Move
Like shopping for any type of clothing, you want your dress to fit just right. Choose a silhouette that compliments your best features while still offering maximum comfort. Sit, bend, pretend to throw the bouquet – make sure the dress is comfortable before stepping down off the pedestal. You want to get a realistic vision of how the dress will look when you’re walking down the aisle or cutting loose on the dance floor with your bridesmaids.
Match the Mood
When and where you are having your wedding typically sets the mood. An evening wedding can set a more elegant and formal mood and a daytime outdoor wedding may be a bit more relaxed. It is best to shop for your wedding dress after the time and place have been determined. This will make it easier to eliminate choices that don’t match the feeling you are trying to create. However, for some women, finding the perfect wedding dress is everything. For the rebel bride to be who goes wedding dress shopping first, keep in mind the dress you choose will set the tone for every other aspect of your wedding.
Be True to Yourself
One of the best tips for getting the wedding dress of your dreams is to stick with your own style. Think about how you dress every day. Is your style more minimalist, favoring simple clean lines or are you more of a glitter and frills girl? Choosing a dress that matches your everyday style is key to feeling comfortable, confident and beautiful on your wedding day. Your bridal consultant can help you find a dress that fits, flatters and is uniquely you.
