In association with advertiser.ie we give some top tips for selecting the special dress.
So your other half has got down on one knee and made you the happiest woman in the world. But now it is time for the real excitement to start - the wedding planning and one of the most important aspects of any wedding is the dress. Here are some of our top tips on how to select that perfect dress for the perfect day.
1. Do research
"By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail," said Benjamin Franklin and this holds true when a bride is on the hunt for a wedding dress. Use all of the media resources at your disposal; social media, bridal magazines, bridal boutiques online etc. By doing so you can visualise the dress and then look for a connecting theme such as lacy or open backed. Find a couple of ideas before you book the big appointment.
2. Have an open mind
Many bridal consultants will tell you that a rather big proportion of brides-to-be will come in with an idea for their dress and leave with a completely different style. Having an open mind will enable you to secure that dream dress.
3. Shop for your size
It is said that you should dress for the body you have and not the body you want and this is very true for shopping for a wedding dress. You may plan to lose weight before the big day but the best advice is to shop for a dress in your current size than going smaller because bridal consultants can always take the dress in if its too big, but may be unable to do anything about a dress that is too snug.
4. Shop early
The early bird gets the worm and all that, and it is highly advisable to shop for your wedding gown early too as many dresses will take time frame of six to eights months to be produced.
So there you have it. Time to get shopping for that special dress.
