Preparing for your wedding can be tough and stressful. You need to take care of a million things and foresee all possible surprises
The hardest aspect is trying to stay calm and actually enjoy the process of creating your dream marriage ceremony. Buying a wedding dress is one of the most exciting and challenging tasks that arises for the bride. On the one hand it can be the most expensive gown you will ever own, on the other ― you have never worn this type of attire before and can easily be overwhelmed by lots of decorations and an exquisite cut. Before making a decision and purchasing your special gown you need to know how to choose a wedding dress that will be perfect for you.
The first thing you need to think about is time. You need to give yourself enough time to find a dress that will suit your personality and body type best. Bridal consultants suggest you should have 9 to 12 months to do the research. The huge variety of different styles is not the only issue. Wedding dresses usually take 4 to 8 months to be sewn. You should also add in shipping and time for alterations. The more fittings ― the better dress will look on you. Give yourself plenty of time and don’t make your decision in a hurry. You also shouldn't buy your special dress too far in advance, because the style may go out of fashion or you may simply change your mind.
Before you start looking for the right silhouette and color shade, think about the venue and weather conditions. If you have a themed wedding, your dress has to correspond with the circumstances. A richly embellished gown will look inappropriate at a country style wedding, plus you will feel uncomfortable. Choose a wedding dress that will be suitable for the weather conditions. If your marriage ceremony is taking place in a hot climate, then forget about a ball gown silhouette with full skirts and many layers of fabric. If you don't want to be hot and sweaty during a summer ceremony, then choose a silk material and a cut with open skin. An elegant and sophisticated gown with long sleeves will keep you warm for a late autumn or winter wedding.
If you want to have pleasant buying experience, you need to set a budget and stick to it. There is nothing worse than finding your dream wedding gown and knowing that you can't afford it. You should discuss what you think is a reasonable price for such an important purchase with the people who are involved in paying: you, your fiance or parents. Wedding consultants say that the price of your dress should equal 8 ― 10% of the whole wedding budget. Do not forget to include shipping expenses and possible alterations. It's hard to buy a wedding dress from the store that will fit you perfectly. You will need to make some adjustments and alterations at the tailors. The wedding dress is the most important part of the bridal look, but not the only one. Don't forget about proper shoes (elegant, but comfortable to walk in), accessories, jewellery, and expenses for hair and makeup. Include these when establishing a budget for your wedding look.
