Choosing what you are going to wear on your wedding day, especially if you are having a destination wedding can be pretty stressful and it is very important. Not only does your wedding gown have to reflect and set the tone for your big day but it also should reflect your individual style and the formality of the wedding itself.
We always tell brides to select your dress AFTER you have selected your wedding venue. For instance if you select an all white marbled area for your ceremony, you are not going to want to wear an ivory dress. Also, if you are getting married in a barn, you are not going to wear a ballgown and the lists goes on.
Here are some tips that help in selecting your dress no matter where in the world you are getting married.
Prepare before you shop. Set your budget and make sure that the shop you are going to has dresses available in your price range.
Dress for the climate. If you are getting married in the Caribbean, loook for thinner NON WRINKLE fabrics.
Choose the right shoe. After your dress is purchased you can bring shoes to your fittings to decide what you can wear and for how long. If you are getting married on the beach and want to be shoeless, make sure you let the seemstress know.
Do you want a veil? Are you getting married outside? If so and you want to wear a veil, ask the dress shop about veil weights. This can stop the veil from blowing all over.
Take a friend or two and relax and have a good time dress shopping. Don’t rush because it may not be the perfect dress. Enjoy the process and find the dress of your dreams!
