Wedding Gowns – selecting the one for you

Shopping for wedding gowns is a moment that every girl dreams of, but that can often prove to be more difficult than you imagine when the time comes.

The assistant is friendly, the champagne is flowing, but all the wedding gowns you put on make you look like a giant meringue or are well outside your budget! If this sounds familiar then you need to do a little preparation before you set out on your hunt for beautiful wedding gowns.

Some of the things you should think about before you start trying on wedding gowns are:

  • What is your body shape? Find out the styles that best suit this. Deciding whether you want strapless or sleeves is a good start when choosing wedding gowns.
  • What is your skin tone? This will help you decide whether you want white, ivory or one of this season’s very flattering pastel shades.
  • Where are you getting married? Stately homes might require princess style wedding gowns but beach weddings need something a little less formal.
  • What is your budget? Make sure you know this in advance so you don’t fall in love with wedding gowns you can’t afford. Remember to budget for alterations and accessories.

A little preparation can be a great help when you’re shopping for wedding gowns. Flick through a few wedding magazines and cut out styles that appeal to you. Your preferred style will gradually begin to emerge. Take your cuttings along when you go shopping to give the assistant a head start.

Finally, don’t worry. When you slip into that perfect dress all the other wedding gowns will fade from sight and you’ll know you’ve found the one!
