Make sure you take out plenty of time for shopping and include enjoyable elements such as lunch and drinks as well as boutique visits. A wedding dress is a substantial investment, so boutiques should make every effort to indulge you and make you feel special and appreciated. An experienced fitter will also be able to suggest styles that will complement your body shape.
Match your dress to your wedding style
Imagine the type of wedding you want to have when you are looking for a wedding dress. Which season have you decided on? If it’s a formal affair or a casual one. What is the location you are getting married at? If your wedding has a theme, you might want to make your dress part of that theme. On the other hand, some brides go out and find the perfect dress and then use that to set their wedding theme.
Know what flatters your body type
There are so many diverse styles and cuts of wedding dresses, that there will always be something available to complement your body shape. The key is to choose something that will highlight your best feature. Consider these key points:
- Empire line dresses will make short legs look longer
- Dropped waist gowns will balance a short waist
- V-necks are extremely slimming and perfect for bustier brides
- The detail and gathered material at the bust is perfect for flatter chests
- Horizontal lines widen the body and vertical lines elongate it
Don’t be lured into hiding the parts of your body you don’t like under layers of structured fabric as this will draw attention to them and give an overall lumpy impression. Equally, make sure your dress isn’t too revealing as you don’t want to be self-conscious all day, and you don’t want your wedding photos to be something you cringe over later.
Many brides make the mistake of buying a dress that is too small to fit them properly, with the idea of slimming into it. Although you can certainly lose some weight before the wedding, you are probably not going to lose whole dress sizes, so it is much more sensible to buy a gown that fits and plans a lot of fittings close to the big day to make any necessary changes.
Choose your own style over high fashion
If you buy a rajputi poshak dress that is super-trendy you can guarantee it will make your wedding photos great, it may prevent you looking as bridal as you would like. Instead of choosing a wedding gown because it is chic, choose one that you love and that makes you look and feel breath-taking. It is better to add your own personal charm to an unpretentious dress using jewelry, shoes and other accessories than to take a wedding outfit directly off the wedding catwalks and regret it later.
