Wedding Venue & Wedding Dress

6 Things to Remember

Though wedding-dress shopping and fittings have built-in joy due to the circumstances, there are a few things that can make those moments go horribly awry.

  • The time of day you go try on the dress matters!
    Dedicate a full day to the search. It’s important that you try on your gown in good, bright, light, and also in lighting that is similar to the lighting for your wedding. If you’re getting married outside during the day, make sure to check out the dress near a window. If you’re getting married in a church with candlelight, try on the dress in dim lighting.
  • The friends and family you invite to help pick out your wedding gown can make or break the experience.
    Only invite people whose opinion you actually care about and value.
  • Don’t forget your undergarments.
    You should wear the undergarments that will be similar to those you’ll sport on your wedding day.
  • Bridal gowns are sized differently from normal clothing.
    This is an important fact to remember, as well as the fact that each designer’s sizing differs drastically from one another.
  • Comfort is important.
    Maybe you’ll be having a wild reception and are planning on dropping it like it’s hot? Practice those signature dance moves to make sure they are possible.
  • Crying is optional.
    Choosing a wedding dress is a totally different experience, some view it as a very emotional process, while others see it as an expression of their personal style. Not all brides cry when they find “the one.”
