Choosing your wedding dress

Getting the Wedding Dress that's right for you .....


With so many assorted styles from which to choose when it comes to deciding on a wedding dress, it's quite a big decision unless you already have some idea of what style, length and colour etc.

The first basic rule

To get you started, make sure you try a few dresses on to give you some idea of how they look in the flesh, so to speak! You will then see what styles naturally suit your body, seeing the dress on will really help!

The number one rule is don't feel pressured in buying the first dress that you see, stay calm, even if it takes a day or so it is best to be sure. Many brides to be, rush in and live to regret their decision. Your wedding dress will be one of the most expensive buys of your whole wedding so it really is best to be sure!

A good idea is to get someone to photograph you whilst you are trying the dresses on so you can take a good look at them in the comfort of your home. Seek the opinion of your closest friends and or family, but above all don't make a split decision you may later regret!

When there is absolutely no doubt in your mind as to "the dress" then you know that it is truly the right one for you.

The most important thing is not to feel rushed as after all, your wedding day is "your day" and one of the biggest most important occasions in your life!

Another thing to bear in mind is whether you are having bridesmaids, a maid of honour or flower girls?  If so, you may need to make sure that there are matching dresses available so that you can get them in your chosen colour, so that they will complement each other on your big day!
