How to Choose Your Dream Wedding Dress

Picking a wedding dress is one of the things that women anticipate all their lives. I will go as far as to say that finding “the dream wedding gown” is the next best thing to getting married to the man you love. I believe I am speaking on behalf of most brides-to-be when I say that choosing the perfect dress is one of the most exciting parts of wedding planning. But where do you start? How do you decide the most beautiful wedding gown to wear on your very special day? In this guide, we will impart expert tips on how you should go about the hunt for the wedding dress of your dreams.

Discover your style

Sketch if you already have a clear picture of your dream wedding dress. You don’t have to be good at drawing, but even a rough sketch will help you identify the details that you want your wedding gown to have. If you haven’t thought of how your dress should look, seek inspiration by browsing through magazines, online wedding catalogues, wedding blogs, and social media platforms. Looking through these mediums will keep your creative juices flowing and help you pick styles that best suit your personality and fashion sense. 

Make a dream board or start saving pictures of wedding dress ideas that you gathered from online sources such as Pinterest and Instagram. It is also during this stage that you need to be more aware of your wedding dress preferences. Over time, you will soon realise the trends or styles you want, which reveals your character and personality. You will notice common trends that prevail across all your choices. For instance, you may discover that you like sleeved wedding dresses, or you lean towards minimalist wedding gowns instead.

If you are biased to long-sleeved wedding gowns, Jolie Bridal 21-J12 is the stunningly simple yet elegant dress that you may want to include on your list. The dress showcases sleek simplicity with a dash of modesty. This ivory-coloured bridal gown fits the modern-day woman that is you. It features a smooth V-plunge neckline that nicely accentuates the neck area. The seamless bodice will fit every smoothly to your shape. The narrow shoulder straps flawlessly extend to it’s long sleeves, a style that makes it the perfect dress if you are getting married in one of the colder months of the year.

It can get overwhelming when you’ve been looking at wedding dresses online for days on end. You may have saved too many wedding dresses that you end up getting more confused about what your dream wedding should look like. To narrow down your choices, check your existing wardrobe. Use it as a reference on dress styles that perfectly complement your body shape. Looking at the dresses you have in your closet will give you an idea of which wedding gown styles will look great on you and are flattering to your silhouette. 

The Berta Privee 20-P102 is a stunning gown in the making with a scoop neckline and corset boned bodice. The unique lace pattern detail on the gown is so stunning with tulle bows on the shoulder and a stunning illusion low back. The waistline is finished with a narrow velvet nude colour belt to define the waist. The skirt is filled with tulle godets, and falls into a train, which has many layers of tulle to give the gown fullness and a dreamy feel. This style is complementary to slender and curvy brides suiting all figure types.

When picking a wedding gown, make sure to get accurate measurements, especially in the bust, waist, and hip areas, so the dress will not only look good on you but will ensure comfort from the exchange of vows to the reception.

Check your options

Apart from browsing through Pinterest and Instagram, It would help if you consider looking at other places too. It’s always best to check out two to three bridal shops so you can see first-hand styles and designs that you may like to wear on your special day. Visiting bridal boutiques also brings you the advantage of professional advice from experts. They can help you navigate on their racks and help you pick one that suits your style, shape, budget, and personality. If you have a generous budget, you can go ahead and get a bespoke wedding dress done. But why spend more when you can find your dream wedding dress from bridal fairs or wedding dress specialty shops? You will be saving money and precious time that you may use to focus on other aspects of your wedding.

The 20-57 Berta Evening Gown is a good style if you’re getting married in the summer or if you will be having a small, intimate wedding with family and close friends.
