Choosing Your Perfect Wedding Dress...
The dress is, quite possibly, the single most expensive item of clothing you will ever purchase, so it’s really important to look stunning in yours. White is, of course, traditional, but not every skin tone suits it; ivory, oyster, cream or even silver-grey can all be extremely effective. Ask to see a variety of shades – or even colours – to see which make you look your best...
Although the range of styles and designs may seem limitless, there are, in fact, seven basic dress shapes; Princess [or A-line], Ball Gown, Empire, Mermaid, Trumpet, Tea [or Ballerina] length and Column [or sheath]. Understanding the shapes which are best suited to your build will help you know what you are looking for before you even begin shopping.
One more thing to think about – the back of your dress. During the service, your guests are going to be looking at this for quite a while, so remember to consider how it will appear to them. Embroidery, beading and other details will make a beautiful picture, but what about the fastening too?
Tiny pearl or silk-covered buttons are a dainty addition; or perhaps an intricately laced-up design might be more suited to your dress style. When you are looking in the mirror in the bridal wear shop, ask your friends to tell you whether or not you look just as beautiful from the back. Attention to detail is what makes for a memorable, beautiful dress.
