Choosing Your Wedding Dress
He proposed and it is time to make a decision on the most important detail of every little girl’s fantasy: the wedding dress. Should it be long or sleeveless, short, lacey, sparkly or plain? So many things to ask yourself, although you are sure of one thing, it needs to be absolutely perfect.
As soon as the planning starts for the wedding day, choosing your wedding dress becomes somewhat of an urgency for most brides, who do not want to wait until the last second. While coping with wedding stress and the preparations, be sure to allow yourself loads of time to try on different styles and find the one that is “you”.
The event and theme of your wedding will be an important point when selecting that special dress. Are you getting married on a tropical beach? If so, you choose might be a light airy style. Have you decided on a traditional affair? Then by all means, wear a white dress covered in silk and lace. Whatever type of occasion your wedding will be, your dress will play one of the most important parts in it!
It’s also important to think about the day month and season you wish to getting married in. If you are having a summer wedding, then you probably shouldn’t wear a wedding dress with double layers or short sleeves. After all, this is supposed to be the most important day of your beginning together. You don’t want the biggest memory to be how much you perspired throughout the wedding!
When choosing your wedding dress, try on comfortable not just styles. Walk around in them, if kneeling is part of the ceremony, then kneel in the dress and be sure you are not going to be uneasy in it. The beauty of the dress is only half of your process—the other half is looking beautiful, elegant and happy . You cannot look happy if you are holding your breath or you’re itchy from the lace on your arms.
One error that a lot of brides tend to make when choosing a wedding dress is with the size. If you are planning on dieting before your wedding day, do not buy a dress the size you think you may be come on the wedding day. Instead buy the size you are on the day you choose the wedding dress. It will always be easier to take a dress in if it is too big, than to add material for a dress that does not fit
With the cost of weddings, some couples try and cut back by making their own flower arrangements, having a family friend bake the wedding cake or hiring a friend to take wedding videos. Although it is okay to cut back and still have your perfect wedding, don’t compromise when choosing your wedding dress. If you cannot afford to hit a wedding high street shops and pay their high prices, try wedding consignment shops, who offer ‘like new’ dresses at an reasonable price.
Whatever style, color or price range you decide on when choosing your wedding dress, remember that you are still “You” and that is who your partner fell in love with, not your dress, which will only add to the greatness of your day.
After you have chosen your wedding dress hang it somewhere safe in the bag it comes in and do not over exhibit it. Give friends something to look forward to as they see you for the first time slowly walking down the aisle. And unless it is impossible, do not let your future partner see your dress at all before the wedding. It’s bad luck!
