Getting a bridal gown designer to create a customized wedding dress will probably be the best option if you want to get the most perfect dress. When you do this, you can have total control on both the design and materials. Besides, most brides do not know what type of dress will fit her the best. The designer should be able to give you a lot of guidance and suggestions. Without any surprise, the designer can design a dress which will match your main wedding theme.
No matter you are going to work with a designer or not, you will have to understand some basics of choosing the bridal dress. Remember, your wedding day is the most important day in your life. You want to express your personality with a unique gown. Here, I will share with you a few tips and ideas to choose the dress.
Color of the dress
You certainly know that it is a tradition for brides to wear a white dress. However, you do not need to confine yourself to this color. You can choose fabrics in any color your love. It is very common for brides to choose colors such as gold, pink, gray etc. There are even brides who love to go for a black gown. This option can be perfect for a black and white wedding theme.
Although you can choose any color you want, you may want to consider your skin color. You should choose a dress with color which is a complement to your skin color.
Express your personalities
There are a lot of brides who want to “copy” some celebrities when choosing the dress. It is not a good idea to do so. Instead of copying from the celebrities, I will suggest you to express your own personalities. You need to stay true when you are wearing the bridal gown. You may not feel relaxed when you copy from celebrities. This will affect your look when you walk down the aisle.
Your body shape
This is probably the most important issue you have to consider. You need to know the strength of your own body. Of course you should also be aware of the weakness of your figure. Ask your designer to help you to choose a style which will suit you well.
In fact, there are also some general rules when you are choosing the style of your dress. For example, you may want to choose a strapless dress if you are tall and thin. This will help to express your figure.
On the contrary, some brides may have a wider hip. To this end, you have to make sure that your hip will not become the focus. A dress with princess cuts will be perfect in this case.
Remember, the above are only some guidelines to choose the dress. You need to put the dress on before you choose it. This will be the best way to ensure that the dress will suit you.
