Planning a Wedding Dress – Choose The Right One

Posted on 30 September 2009

Preparing for a wedding can take a good deal of time, and there is no doubt that one of the most difficult and enjoyable part of planning your wedding is planning a wedding dress. This is one of the tasks that should be worked on well ahead of time.

The dress of your wedding must match to the theme and location of your wedding. It mostly depends on the type of wedding you are having; you might go for a stunning gown or go with a traditional wedding dress. Your body figure also impacts your choice of a wedding dress, but this shouldn’t worry you because dresses come in different designs and sizes. Color is also something you might want to think about while planning your wedding dress, as if you don’t do this then your dress might look ridiculous and out of place on your wedding.

Everybody wants their wedding to be unique in some sort of way. As an important part of weddings is your dress, you could make that unique by adding beading and embroidery to it. One thing should be kept in mind though, that hand stitched dresses can cost a fortune, so always be careful on what you order. Beading is mostly used to grab attention to your best features, be it your slim waist, or shapely bust.

There are some general rules of thumb that need to be followed when it comes to body shape. First of all, don’t be deceived by flattery. Try to be realistic about every dress you try on, and simply avoid the ones out side of your budget. If you are going off to buy an off the rack dress, wait until the last month to do that because your shape may change. When you have bought the dress, maintain your weight. The most common and drastic mistake brides do is that they buy a smaller dress, and hope that it fits them when the time comes.

If you are tall and slim, you might want to think about a long fitted dress that pays homage to your slim height. Also make sure to have a high collar and cap sleeves. If you are short and slim, you should rather go with a knee length fitted dress. On the other hand, if you are short with a fuller figure a floor length empire line gown is your best option. The same goes for the ladies with tall and fuller figure.

I just can’t lay enough emphasis on the importance of planning a wedding dress correctly. Just make sure you start on this way ahead of time, so that you wouldn’t have any regrets later.
