Quest for the Wedding Dress
What to do with all the choices and styles.
Here are a few tips on how to narrow down
the wedding dress selection.
Dress for your body shape. For example, if
your body type is a pear shape, the widest
part of your body is below the waist/around
the hips. When selecting your bridal gown,
you want to de-emphasize the area around
your hips, and bring more emphasis to the
top portion of your body. This will help
balance your overall shape. When trying
dresses on, bring a friend or family member
to help you determine what looks best - but!

conflicting opinions will just confuse you

Break in your shoes a few weeks before. You'll be so much more comfortable
throughout your wedding day.
When putting on your bridal gown, have someone help you. just to be sure you don't
ruin your hair, make-up, or delicate areas of the dress.
Finally, after you're all made up and ready to go, wear that dress like you're a
celebrity. Have an awesome wedding day.
Pick dress textures or fabrics that work for you. Be in the mood to try them
on. Sometimes, if you're cranky or tired you might not be able to accurately
judge what you like or dislike in a wedding dress. Pick a day to shop when
you are feeling good and energetic - since that is more likely to be your
mood on your wedding night anyway. Don't exclude comfort. At least not
completely. Sometimes girls are willing to sacrifice all comfort of the dress, if
it makes them look better. While "looking" good in your wedding dress is
important and the main goal, it's also important to "feel" good in your
wedding dress too. Remember it's sometimes hot outside, so being
comfortable might prevent unnecessary perspiration or irritation. Being
comfortable in your dress will actually help keep you looking your best.
