Blog PostHow To Find Your Dream Wedding Dress

wpengine February 9, 2018

A wedding gown is one of the most memorable purchases a bride will ever make. It is also often one of the most challenging decisions to make. Your wedding dress should make you feel beautiful and confident. It should also fit into the theme of the wedding and be comfortable enough to eat, dance and mingle in. With so many wedding gown choices out there, it can be difficult to find the right one, but we’ve got some great tips to help you choose your ideal dress!

Use Pinterest

Pinterest is full of thousands of beautiful wedding gowns. It can be a bit overwhelming at first, but it’s a great place to start browsing your many options. The most important step in dress shopping is finding which shapes and styles you like the most, as well as dress details and fabrics. Once you research the endless possibilities on Pinterest, you’ll have a better understanding of what styles you gravitate towards and can narrow down your choices while dress shopping. Having your Pinterest board on your phone will help your wedding dress stylist gain inspiration and help guide the search towards your dream gown.

Try On Different Silhouettes

While you may have one silhouette in mind, it’s best to try on a few different styles during your first appointment. You could think you’ll love a ballgown style but may find a new love for a more fitted style dress once you try it on. Pay close attention to how it fits your body and your favorite features. Some dress shapes accentuate certain body types better than others. Ask your consultant on the best options for you to ensure you’ll love the fit.  Also, you want to make sure your dress silhouette fits your wedding venue and theme.

Test Its Comfort Level

You’ll be wearing your gown for hours on your wedding day, so make sure it’s comfortable enough to sit, stand, eat and dance in! Whether the dress is too tight or is made from an itchy fabric, an uncomfortable dress can take your focus away from your happiness on your big day.

Trust Your Own Opinion

Many brides take along a few close friends and family members to get their opinions while wedding dress shopping but remember that your opinion is the most important. It’s helpful to get feedback on the dress style and silhouette, but at the end of the day, you should choose the dress that brings you happiness and makes you feel your best!
