Some of the best days of our lives happen during our nuptials. Not just the day itself but all the parts leading up to that day, including deciding the shape of your wedding dress. We all have been the little girl who hangs a pillowcase off the back of her head to pretend to be a bride. Every little girl daydreams and moons over large princess dresses a la Cinderella but the reality as an adult is different – well, mostly – we all come in different shapes and sizes so choosing the wedding dress of your dreams may not always be a walk in the park.
There are a lot of types of wedding dresses out there ranging from wedding dresses by caroline castigliano to a full gowned Vera Wang affair. They come in many colours and lengths and you could have an absolute ball with your bridesmaids trying dresses on and sipping champagne especially if you’re going for a designer wedding gown. Not that cost should matter but the bigger budget dresses come with a reverence that most other bridal gowns tend not to. Finding the right bridal boutiques can be a difficult affair and finding high street place to buy a caroline castigliano dress isn’t always easy. However, there are always those out there available to you!
Choosing the right style of wedding dress will really depend on a lot of factors. Your age, colouring, height and even weight can come into it. Every girl wants the dream princess dress but whatever that means for you, you want to look good. Your weight itself doesn’t matter (except to some brides it does) but realistically you want to choose a dress that will flatter your shape whatever that is. Wedding dresses come in so many different styles it can be really hard to choose but what looks good on the hanger needs to look good on you and when you find the right dress, you’ll know for sure. Ensure that you have a good tailor to alter yours and your bridesmaid’s dresses. Obviously it would beneficial if no one got themselves pregnant between trying on dresses and the big day but sometimes these things happen and as long as you have a great tailor, then they can be on hand for alterations as time goes on. Choosing tea length dresses for a more fifties style of wedding can be a beautiful fit and you can even choose colours that aren’t ivory or white. A coloured dress is ever more popular as the years go on, with some people choosing to be wed in fancy dress which is actually less popular.
There’s something so clean and beautiful in a white or ivory dress so if you are the traditional type, you’ll find different shops up and down the country will have your dream dress. Even the high street houses places like John Lewis and Debenhams and Marks and Spencers, which all carry elegant wedding dresses but without the custom made boutique price tag. You want to feel like a princess on your wedding day and we all know that the power to do that lies not with your future husband, but in the silk and layers of your wedding dress.
