Finding the perfect wedding dress is a challenge every bride faces when they begin their search for the 'one.' There are so many things to consider: the style, the design, the silhouette, the fabric, the theme, and the price. Although the process can be tiresome and exhausting, it also is the most rewarding step of wedding planning! Every bride wants to look like a princess on their big day. Today, we will impart some of our wedding dress wisdom to you and share some tips on how to find the right wedding dress!
Do your research
The first step may seem obvious; however, it is arguably the most crucial initiative you can take when deciding on your dream dress! We suggest you take inspiration from your favorite bridal magazines, websites, and Instagram accounts and make a list of some designs and styles you like the look of. You may already have some 'must have' details in mind, which is a great starting place for narrowing down your search.
Keep an open mind
The second step we recommend is to keep an open mind when bridal shopping. What do we mean by this? Well, it may be smart not to rule out any style or design until you have tried it on and decided whether it is a nay or yay. Brides often have a strong visualization of what they want and end up with the complete opposite!
Know your body type
No matter what shape or size you have, all bodies are beautiful! When opting for a custom wedding gown, in particular, you have the freedom to design a dress completely tailored to your exact shape to flatter every inch of you. In order to achieve the right gown for you, it helps to know what body shape you have, what areas you want to spotlight, and what areas you want to tone down.
Match your dress to your theme
This next point can not be stressed enough; you must keep in mind your wedding theme and venue when choosing the design of your bridal dress. Firstly, is your wedding indoors or outdoors? What season is your wedding? What theme does your wedding follow? These are some essential questions you need to consider in order to have a cohesive wedding aesthetic.
Be aware of budget
Money matters. When beginning your wedding dress search, be aware of your budget beforehand, as some materials, embellishments, and details may cost more than others. This may become a huge influence when deciding on the final design, so be sure to factor the wedding dress cost into your overall wedding budget.
Consider a custom wedding dress
What is a custom wedding dress, you may wonder? A custom gown means an ensemble that is made-to-order. It has been specially made, designed, and created for you and your body type. The beauty of choosing custom is that it gives the opportunity for both the designer and bride to collaborate in the design process; you will be there every step of the journey. Any tweaks you want to make, any changes you want to implement, we, as the custom designer, can make that happen. Your dream dress will literally appear before your eyes, and it is completely unique to you!
