The Wedding Gown


Wedding gowns range in colors, styles and certainly price. So how do you choose the perfect one for you?

Start with your budget.  That should include your wedding gown and accessories (veil, jewelry, shoes, stockings and even your headpiece).  What type of gown do you want? Is your wedding Formal? Semi-formal? or Informal? Picking your gown will depend on your wedding details, location and even the feel you want to have. Allow your gown to match your wedding plans.

When do I start looking for that all important gown? The short answer, start looking as soon as possible.  You want to have time to make this decision. Most dresses take up to 6 months to 8 months, sometimes longer, to order and come in.  Then you may need to have it altered, so planning ahead is your best course of action.

There are numerous styles to wedding gowns now and then of course there’s color.  Try on various styles to get a feel for what compliments your curves.  Whether it’s a high or low neckline, short skirt, full ball room, mermaid or even t-length, the choice is up to you.  As for color, if you’re a traditional bride, white or ivory is always a good choice.  Are you thinking of something outside of the box? Then check out the color options now available in todays bridal shops.  You have options which may include pink, blue, red and even for that eclectic bride you may even find a black wedding gown.  Now these colors aren’t for everyone, but if your looking to make a statement, these colored gowns will certainly do that.

Enjoy trying on gowns with those special members of your family and friends.  Everyone will have an opinion, but remember your opinion is the most important opinion.

Happy Planning!
