The Wedding Gown is the pinnacle of all your wedding fantasies and dreams. People often fantasize about an exquisite princess bride in a snowy white, ethereal Wedding Dress of exceptional beauty since their childhood. It should come as no surprise that choosing the right dress for your Big Day will be one of the most challenging and exciting aspects of wedding planning. In an ideal world, marriage is a “once in a lifetime event.” You are not given much room to practice or make mistakes. So, in order to make the bride’s entrance down the aisle of the church perfect and unforgettable, great care should be taken to ensure that every detail, including the Wedding Dress, is completed correctly.
Many brides-to-be form an image in their minds of the type of dress they want to wear on their Wedding Day as a result of watching fantasy weddings on TV, reading about them in books and magazines, or hearing about them from other people. Many people take a look and study stance while formulating, planning, and dreaming up their ideal Wedding Gown. If the time has come for you to start looking through the racks for the perfect Wedding Dress that will make your Wedding Day dreams come true, you have come to the right place. Here are a few suggestions to help you and make your search and selection process easier.
#01 The Wedding Dress Is the Most Important
Though it can go either way, the style and theme of your Wedding Dress should correspond to the theme of your Wedding Day or vice versa. Some couples choose the Wedding Day theme before the Wedding Gown, and as a result, they make the Wedding Gown match the theme they’ve chosen. However, for some people, the choice of the Wedding Dress comes first, and the Wedding Day theme follows the Wedding Dresses theme. So, if a wedding gown catches the bride’s eye and is heavily beaded and formal, the theme for the wedding day is usually formal. If the bride chooses a less formal Wedding Gown, it is possible that the Wedding Day will be less formal.
#02 Avoid being overburdened with options.
Sure, it’s tempting to try on every Wedding Dress you come across. But what if you find yourself buried beneath a pile of twenty or so Wedding Dresses that you think you like but can’t decide between? This situation will almost certainly result in a bad headache, not to mention additional stress. Attempt to avoid this by making decisions in stages. As an idea, you could try the ‘X-Factor’ approach to selecting your Wedding Dress, by voting off the least preferred dress and then re-evaluating the remaining Dresses.
Another method you could try is to try on five wedding gowns and then choose two of the best. These “winners” would then be pitted against five new gowns. Continue the contest until you find the ideal gown. It’s tempting to say, “Oh my goodness! That other wedding gown could have been better.” Make an effort to limit your final selection to no more than five dresses. If you have too many options, you may become overwhelmed and end up selecting an inferior dress, or you may end up selecting the perfect dress but constantly questioning whether or not you made the best choice.
