Still looking for the perfect dress? These five simple tips will help you along the way!
Set the Date, Book the Venue: Before you can embark on your journey to find the perfect wedding dress
, you’ll need a date set and a venue booked. The date and venue
should dictate the style of your gown. After all, a dramatic ball gown would look out of place at a casual backyard wedding.
Showcase Your Best Assets: And be honest about your figure, shape and measurements. If you choose a dress that spotlights your best features and minimizes any problem areas, you’ll be totally comfortable in your own skin.
Keep an Open Mind: Even if you’re dead set on a particular silhouette, at least try on a variety of dresses
in different silhouettes. You might be surprised by which shape looks best on your body.
When in Doubt, Go One Size Up: Once you find that dream dress, make sure to allow for alterations. As you know, taking a gown in is much easier than letting it out. That said, it’s important you take note of any details or embellishments (beading, appliqué, embroidery) that will make alterations difficult before you take the plunge and buy the dress.
Visualize the Dress as Part of the Day: You in your swoon-worthy wedding dress will be the centerpiece, the main attraction, the star of the show on your wedding day. And the other elements of your wedding—the décor, flowers, and overall vibe—should tell the same beautiful story that your dress tells.
