Wedding Dress Tips!

The types of bridal dresses include: Ball Gowns, Mermaid dresses, A-line dresses, Sheath dresses, Tea-length dresses and High-low dresses. For those with more casual weddings, there are also sundresses, slip dresses and jumpsuits. Popular fabrics often include Tulle, Lace, Silk or Organza for traditional looks. These can be adorned with beading, embellishments, or delicate details such as detachable trains or veils to customise the bridal look. 

The “ONE”! – Finding the right wedding dress is a personal experience, but you will know it when you try it on. It’s important to trust your instincts and listen to your emotions. The dress should make you feel confident, beautiful and comfortable. You should be able to envision yourself walking down the aisle in it, and it should match the theme and formality of your wedding. Ultimately, when you find your dream wedding dress, it will feel like the perfect fit for your special day. 

Planning – Choosing a wedding dress can be overwhelming, but follow these tips to make the process smoother. First, set a budget and look for inspiration from bridal magazines, social media or Pinterest! Consider the venue and theme of your wedding, as well as the weather and season. Try on different styles to see what flatters your body type and makes you feel confident. Sometimes the style you don’t think you like, may be the one you fall in love with!

Timing’s – It is recommended that you buy your wedding dress at least 9-12 months prior to your wedding date. During the process you must account for time for any alternations you may need, and if you are ordering the dress, you should factor in time spent on shipping and any possible delays.

Your appointment – It is recommended to wear nude or light-coloured underwear to your wedding dress appointment. This way, you can get a better sense of how the dress will look on your wedding day without any distracting underwear lines or colours showing through. It is completely your personal preference whether you wear a bra or not to your appointment. Some brides may feel more confident and comfortable with a bra, while other brides may prefer not to wear one. Most dresses have a built in bra cup; Bra cups help to provide this support and can also help shape the bust area. However, some dresses may not have them and may require an external strapless or adhesive bra for added support. It’s essential to consult with a professional seamstress or bridal consultant to determine the best undergarment options for your specific wedding dress. 

Friends & family attending – Typically, it’s best to keep the number of people attending a bridal appointment between 2-4 people. This will ensure there is enough space in the boutique for dresses to be tried on and everyones’ opinions will be heard. Having an intimate group of close family and friends helps to ensure the appointment will run smoothly and that everyone attending can give their meaningful input. 

Most importantly, the bride should feel absolutely comfortable with everybody attending her appointment so that she can enjoy the experience and make the decision that’s right for her.
