Weddings are often grand celebrations. Two people formalize their union in front of their families and friends. There are lots of food, wine, and fancy dresses to go around. No one looks better than the bride who usually gets most of the attention in this type of event. This is possible by choosing the best wedding dress. It isn't one particular type as different things suit each person. Therefore, brides must take their time trying several dresses in the quest to find "the one". There are several elements that must be considered. Allot enough time at each bridal salon to evaluate each of these.
Think hard about the style and theme of the dress than you want. It is one of the most crucial pieces of the puzzle. Be open about this as you never know what might look good unless you try them all out. Sometimes the pieces that you didn't think were right for you could turn out to be among the better options. Experiment with different cuts and designs. Ask the opinion of designers about the type of style that would look great on you. A few knowledgeable friends could also give their advice but you should always have the last say.
After narrowing down the options to the last few items, it's time to think about the fit of the dress. A fabulous appearance is a good thing but you will have to wear the piece for the whole day so it better be comfortable. The fit should be just right to let you walk down the aisle in comfort and dance at the reception without feeling awkward. Most can easily be adjusted to your frame at strategic places. Get a good designer so that the final outcome will be flattering to your form.
Of course, you will have to check the quality of both the fabric and the workmanship. It may only be worn for one day but it will be heavily used. You don't want something that will get torn apart if people step on it. The stitching should also be tight with no hot spots or stray thread. Inspect the length of the dress before buying it. Quality is particularly important if you wish to bequeath the item to your daughter or granddaughter someday. A well-made piece can stand the test of time. Many have already done so in the past with classic designs helping to keep the dress fresh despite the changing times.
Fittings can be long and exhausting. You might have a number of bridal salons to visit on your list. Schedule them in such a way as to have enough time to do what you have to in each. In an entire day, visiting 3 of them will probably be the limit. Anything more would be too exhausting. Go with a friend or two. Take your mom, your mother-in-law, or both. Just remember to keep the party small so as not to get overwhelmed by their feedback and suggestions.
