We have all played dress up in our childhood and I think the first thing a girl imagines for her wedding is a beautiful dress. But in actuality, finding that perfect wedding gown when you are actually going to get married becomes a very stressful task due to the wide range of choice and the inability to be able to decide upon just one that will make you look like the most beautiful bride. Here are some tips that can help you pin down the dress that is just perfect for you and without all the hassle.
Firstly, you have to be aware of all the possible choices, take all the time you want when shopping for your wedding gown. Start with the stores close to you or even look online, try out different styles and see what flatters you.
Though white is the traditional bridal gown color, white may look a little too plain or even washed out if you have a deeper complexion. Don’t be afraid to experiment with the amazing color choices available in dresses. Try crème or softer pastels if that is what you like instead of white. Shades like lace blue, dusky pink and if you like, baby-doll pink, is also fashionable. The color of your gown must complement your personality and be in keeping with the theme of your wedding ceremony and reception
Some bridal stores do not allow you to take pictures of their dresses while some do. When you try out the gowns carry along a camera just in case it is allowed and take a picture of the gown(s) you like. You can make this less obvious if you use your cell phone camera. Don’t be afraid to be at the end of the tether for the salespeople. They will push you to buy, but be sure that you don’t make a spur of the moment purchase. It is your wedding dress after all! Take the pictures with you and show them to your maid of honor, bridesmaids, and family to get a collective opinion and also for yourself because you will be a little overwhelmed after trying on so many dresses. It is best to wait for at least 24 hours before you go back with a fresh perspective.
Only buy from a store when you are completely sure about all their services, like alterations, cost, cancellation, refund policies, cleaning methods, etc. These are essential for deciding the kind of service you will be getting in case you need help.
Lastly, don’t fall for advertised fads. Remember that this dress is something that you want to be able to admire even after the golden jubilee of your nuptials. It must be worth it.
Don’t forget to take with you, a relative or friend for their honest opinion. After all, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder and you might need someone to relax with after trying on so many gowns. But all in all, it is a fun experience and be sure to make the most of it. A good wedding gown is something you may want to preserve for your daughter.
