6 Must Dos When Choosing Your Wedding Dress


A wedding is a great moment in a woman's life. That is the day when she wishes to look her best in terms of her costume and make-up. There are many bridal stores to cater to the varied demands of brides across the world. There are also good designers who can make a tailor-made bridal gown for you. It all depends on what you want and how you want it!

Choose your budget

Firstly, decide how much you want to splurge on your wedding dress. Fix a budget range for yourself. Based on your preferred budget, go hunting for readymade wedding dresses or custom-made ones. If you are planning to go overboard, feel free to do it. After all, it is your wedding day and your money!

Select your style

Wedding gowns come in all shapes, colors and sizes. You should choose the right-fitting gown based on your body type. For a pear-shaped body, a gown that flares out in an A formation from the waist to the floor looks good. If you are busty, a gown with a scooped neckline looks good. To gather more ideas, go through a magazine or the internet. Choose a classic or a contemporary style.

Be open-minded

You may think a certain style may not suit you. But when you try something new, you will look fabulous! So be open-minded.

Consider Your Accessories

Do you want to wear accessories with your gown? Do you want to wear a veil and a tiara? Decide what accessories you want to wear, and then try all of them on. You should also decide how you want your hair to be. Do you want to leave it open or put it up?

Schedule Your Wedding Dress Appointment as Early as Possible

Ideally, you should schedule your wedding dress appointment in the early part of the day. This way, you get to avoid crowded stores and you will get proper attention from store consultants.

Try as Many Wedding Dresses as Possible

You should try as many wedding dresses as you need to. A wedding gown will look stunning on a hanger or on a mannequin. The real test comes only when you actually wear it, as each woman has a different shape.

Dresses usually take quite some time to be made. If there are any alterations to be made, then it will take some more time. So it is wise to start the search early.
