Finding the right wedding dress is clearly not an easy undertaking. Every bride dreams of the perfect wedding and the beautiful gown but making the right choice is often harder as one might think. The huge variety and number of styles out there can get pretty overwhelming.
This Wedding Dresses Shopping Guide will help brides to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
First of all brides should take their time. The more time you can spend on it, the better quality decision you are going to make, the better the outcome. It’s a wedding gown, it’s the one thing a bride gets to wear, the one night where all eyes are on you. So no premature buying decisions. Taking your time is crucial.
On the other hand decisions are often made on first sight. Trust your instinct. Whatever thrills you is what you should give a try and if it’s a giant beaded ball gown on the beach, then go for it. But there are still some guidelines to keep in mind. The old saying “The brides should wear the wedding dresses, the dresses shouldn’t wear the brides” is still true and a very good basic shopping guide. In the end the most important thing is whenever the groom sees his bride going down the aisle, the bride should shine.
The gown always should be seen as an accessory to the bride and her beauty. Finding the style that best enhances and flatters a brides figure is another important point to take into consideration. Small girls usually need very little around their faces. Here strapless dresses or dresses small cat sleeves work best. Generally proportions are very important. A-line dress usually are a save bet and look good on everybody.
Mermaids or sheet gowns on the other hand work well on tall, thin brides. Bustier, low wasted brides tend to look best in v-neck wedding dresses. It can be difficult to know what style of dress will extenuate your natural beauty. Again looking at as many dresses as possible is key. The best shopping guide is try on the dresses you don’t initially think you can wear.
Generally it is a great idea to let a bridal gown consultant help you choose a gown. Their experience often is invaluable such as knowing which color works well with your skin tone.
Interestingly enough a lot of brides can’t wear white. Usually white is the first choice but many bridal gown consultants agree that ivy is actually the color which works best for everybody. There are 6 to 8 different shades of ivy, ranging from palace ivy to champagne, to ivies with a touch of yellow or pink. But it’s not just the color of the dress but the feel of the dress which is important too. These days designers are giving brides a wider range of options. So if you are out for shopping, make sure you give ivy a try.
Follow the above shopping guidelines and you will find the wedding dress of your dreams.
