How To Select The Perfect Wedding Dress


Selecting the right wedding dress is an important part of your wedding. However, when you step into a bridal shop, there will be many different dresses to choose from and it can become overwhelming.

There is a lot to think about and you will want to make sure that you are making the right choice. Needless to say, there are a lot of decisions that you need to make. Here's some help with making the right choices.

Do Some Research

Taking the time to do some research so that you can decide what type of wedding gown catches your eye is an essential step to making the right choice. The more clear your idea of the type of dress you are looking for the better. 

However, even if you're having a dress custom-made, be prepared to be flexible. You may not see the exact dress that caught your eye on social media but you may see a variation of it. Additionally, be aware that wedding dresses have different styles, some may be vintage, others modern, or they may be traditional. You need to decide which option is right for you.

Sizing May Change

Depending on the nature of the wedding gown you are selecting, you may need to go up a few sizes to get the right fit. While this may seem a bit annoying and even terrifying, it is sometimes very necessary to ensure that it looks stunning on you.

With that being said, many brides try to shed a few pounds before their wedding. However, it's best not to let this affect the size that you choose for your dress. Always make sure that your wedding dress is true to your current size, not the size you are hoping for.

You may achieve your weight loss goal, and if that happens then you will be able to take the dress in quite easily. It will be a lot more difficult to adjust a dress that fits too snugly.

Start Early

It can take a few months for a wedding dress to finally be completed. It's always best to go into a bridal shop and start the process of making or customizing your dress as soon as you can. 

You should ideally get started at least four or five months before the actual wedding day. This is the only way to make sure that the dress will be ready on time for your big day.

coordinating with a wedding planner

I knew that I wasn't going to be able to handle the entire planning process on my own. I talked with a wedding planner and selected some elements that I would take care of on my own and hired her to do the rest of the work for me. Knowing how much goes into a wedding really overwhelmed me. Visit my blog to find a few tips that can help you coordinate with a planner to make your wedding as perfect as mine was.
