As you’ve clicked on this article, the chances are you’re struggling to find the ideal wedding dress for your big day. You’ve probably viewed lots of different styles, but are struggling to find the wedding dress of your dreams. Well, never fear, as we’re here to show you how to do just that!

Dress for Your Body Shape

So many people make the mistake of dressing for other people’s body shape instead of their own. If you want to look practically perfect on your wedding day, you have to select a wedding silhouette that complements your shape.

Don’t spend too much time admiring celebrity gowns and bridal models, and instead aim to identify what dress fits your body in all the right places.

The Waist Up

Think about most wedding photos of the bride. They are often taken from the waist up, right? So, if you want to look simply stunning on your wedding photos, we recommend you opt for a gown that will impress from the waist up.

The Right Bra

It is essential that you wear the right bra when visiting a bridal store, as you won’t want the garment to detract from the gown’s beauty. Pick a bra that not only fits you correctly, but that you would be proud to wear on the day of your wedding.

Classic Wedding Design

Nothing screams elegance like a classic wedding dress design, as you can trust you will look just as beautiful 20 years after the big day on photographs. Select a gown that will show your children, and grandchildren, that you oozed sophistication and style on your wedding day. Channel your inner Audrey Hepburn, and select a timeless setting to complement your gown, such as the stunning wedding venue at 30 James Street.

Leave the Crowd at Home

Whatever you do, don’t take too many people with you to a bridal store, as you will receive far too many opinions. The last thing you want when picking a wedding dress is for a family member or friend to put you off a gown. Only take one or two people to the bridal store with you, and you can even pick a dress alone if you trust your opinion.

 Try Before You Buy

You may have already found your perfect wedding dress, and that’s great! However, there’s no harm in trying on as many dresses as possible before you make a purchase, as you’ll at least be 100% sure your gown is the perfect one for you. Don’t forget to take your camera to see how well the dress photographs.
