A dress is one of those crucial wedding details that shouldn’t be missed or overlooked. Your wedding dress plays a central role in the ceremony, so it’s important to shop around for the ideal dress that suits your body type, your personality and also your personal preferences. In this post, we’ll be taking a look at some tips to help you find the ideal wedding dress.
How to start researching for your ideal wedding dress
The first thing to consider is how you plan to research for your wedding dress. After all, there are countless different ideas and it’s important that you look for inspiration in many different places to decide on the ultimate dress for your wedding.
For starters, we’d suggest just looking online. Websites such as Pinterest are an excellent source of inspiration because they have countless images of unique and interesting wedding dresses. You can also look at Google Images, Facebook or even Instagram. Thanks to convenient tag searching, you can easily find unique wedding dresses to serve as inspiration.
How many dresses should you try?
Ideally, you’ll want to have around five to seven dresses on a shortlist. Make sure you try on lots of different dresses to see what looks best on your body type. You can narrow down the search by picking styles that you like first, and then you can decide on individual dresses.
It’s a good idea to bring along a friend or family member (or several!) to give you some advice on your dresses. Make sure they’re honest with their feedback and don’t hesitate to ask shop assistants too. They’re experienced professionals that will likely have plenty of suggestions!
What if I’m looking for a specific dress?
If you’re looking for something specific then it might be worth looking for a designer that specializes in it. Finding an experienced couture dress designer is fairly difficult, and designers tend to focus on multiple styles. As a result, you can often get wonderful results regardless of who you speak to. However, we’d suggest going on the designer’s website or Instagram page to get a good idea of what kind of dresses they make.
Going for a bespoke order like this is going to be more expensive, but it also means you’ll be able to get a unique dress that will stand out at your wedding.
How long should it take to pick a dress?
For some people, picking a dress could take just a few days. However, others might have been deciding on their ideal wedding dress for years–even before their big day announcement! It varies from person to person and there’s nothing wrong with taking a long time to choose the ideal wedding dress.
On the other hand, there’s also nothing wrong with being quick about what you want. Perhaps you know exactly what you like, or maybe a certain dress just spoke to you and really fits your idea of the perfect wedding dress.
