Taking the Difficulty out of Picking Your Wedding Dress

Without a doubt, your wedding is going to be one of the biggest days of your life and in order to prepare for it, it’s necessary to take
every little detail into consideration. One of the biggest concerns that you might have is how to pick out your wedding dress. With
so many different styles, colours and silhouettes to choose from, it can be extremely daunting to even gather inspiration for what
your ideal wedding dress should look like.


So in this article, we’re going to take the difficulty out of picking a wedding dress by giving you a couple of helpful tips.



Where is your wedding going to be held?


Unless you’ve not reached this stage yet, it’s important to think about where your wedding is actually being held in order to
make the right wedding dress choice. This is something that can give you more comfort and isn’t necessarily related to the style.
For instance, if it’s rather cold outside and you’re having your ceremony outside, then you’ll want to choose a dress or at least
have some clothing that will help you stay warm. Winter wedding dresses are typically a little heavier and very lace-focused.
They’re a bit more comfortable and can often be even cosier and more comfortable than your regular wedding dress. Some
may even have faux-fur wraps to help you cover your shoulders when you’re not at the ceremony, helping you stay warm if the
weather is particularly chilly.


How much can you spend on your wedding dress?


No one has an infinite budget for their wedding dress so it’s important to keep an eye on how much you’re spending if you want
to get the perfect dress for your needs. Take a look at how much you can spend and speak to rental services to get a higher-quality
wedding dress for less. If you’re looking to have something custom made that you can keep, expect to pay a little bit more for the
privilege. Be realistic when it comes to spending money on your wedding dress and let your consultant or wedding planner know
how much you’re willing to spend if they’re in charge of helping you find the perfect wedding dress for your big day.


How much time can you realistically spend?


If you’re trying to pick a wedding dress last-minute then having something custom made is often out of the question unless the tailor
is willing to do a rush order or modify an existing dress to your needs. You should give at least six months before you actually need
the wedding dress so you have plenty of time to customise the entire dress to your needs. The longer you wait, the more choice
you’ll have and the more “last-minute” changes you can make should you want something changed on your dress.
However, if you don’t have much time then it’s best to check some stores that have ready-to-wear wedding dresses off the rack in various sizes. If you really don’t have much time, then purchasing something premade is often the best (and in some cases only) choice. That’s
not exactly a bad thing either, as there are many excellent dresses that can be bought straight off the rack if you’re in a hurry.



What’s your body type like?


One of the biggest things that could help you choose the ideal wedding dress is understanding your body type so that you
can give that information to whoever is in charge of making or choosing your wedding dress. Getting the perfect wedding dress silhouette
is all about understanding your figure, the shape of your body and also picking the right dress to compliment your body. Be more conscious
about how you look in your wedding dress and allow your wedding planner or tailor to help you make a decision that is best for you.
Of course, you’re always welcome to try something new and interesting even if it doesn’t completely fit your figure, and there are plenty of unique wedding trends that you can take advantage of to get a dress that truly fits your personality. Getting to know your body type can be quite confusing, so it’s worth asking a friend or an expert to give you a hand.


Do you feel empowered when you put on your dress?


At the end of the day, the biggest determining factor for whether you should or shouldn’t pick a dress is down to how it makes you feel. A lot of people think too much about what others think, what the norms are, what trends are hot and how they’ll be perceived by their guests at the wedding.
However, what’s really the most important is how you personally feel when you put on your dress. After all, it’s your wedding and you’re allowed to really do whatever you want in order to make yourself feel empowered and in control.


When you put on the perfect wedding dress, it’ll click like a puzzle piece and you’ll know that it’s the one. Don’t pressure yourself to make a purchase because there’s a discount or because you “might” look great in it once you lose a couple of pounds. A dress that truly makes you feel special is worth more than any other consideration as long as it’s practical. If you’ve yet to get that fuzzy feeling when you look at yourself put on a wedding dress, then keep looking until you’ve found one that really speaks to you and makes you feel happy, empowered and absolutely flawless.


While picking a wedding dress can be incredibly daunting and even challenging, it’s important to remember that a lot of it does come down to personal taste and what you like to wear. There isn’t really a “wrong” choice when it comes to picking a wedding dress and as long as your budget allows for it, you’re free to pick whatever you want! In short, follow your personal tastes and styles that you really love and start from there. It’s your wedding, after all, so don’t let anyone tell you differently!
