Finding Your Dream Wedding DressPosted on
For many brides-to-be the dress is probably (definitely) the most important thing you will buy for your wedding. On your wedding day it will be all eyes on you and your gown, so make sure you take enough time to choose one that really suits you. Here’s our step-by-step guide to helping you find the dress of your dreams
Having a price in mind before you begin shopping is always a good place to start – a realistic one that is. Many brides often find themselves purchasing a dress that is far more expensive than the intended price. You may want to think about an amount that is around 10% of the overall wedding cost.
It’s always a good idea to shop around first before you try anything on. Why not collect bridal magazines, cut out images of your favourite dresses and create a moodboard to start building a picture of what you can see yourself wearing on the big day. This will also be helpful for consultations with suppliers. You can start to add in any pictures of cakes, flowers, table decorations and accessories to help outline your overall theme.
Choosing your wedding dress is not about which model looks best in the magazine. It’s about you – what suits and works for you and your body shape. Most importantly, are you comfortable? I can’t imagine there is anything worse than being uncomfortable on your wedding day. Have a look at a few different styles and choose the one which works best for your figure. Trust your instincts, but let the professionals advice guide you.
You will know when you have found the ‘one’, and when you have, remember… stop searching!
