Finding the wedding dress to wear on the most beautiful day of life is certainly one of the greatest emotions you can experience when organizing your wedding. In fact I believe that the wedding dress is the first real dream as a child that comes true and, for a day, you become a princess.
How belong the wedding should I buy the dress? In my opinion, the bride should begin shopping 9 – 6 months prior to the wedding date, so there is enough time to select the most suitable one and place her gown order or even if she wants a custom tailor made wedding dress from an atelier.
• Which wedding dress matches my personality
The wedding dress must enhance one’s body and is the right one only if one feels completely at ease, as if it were a part of oneself and one does not feel the sensation of being masked in another identity.
To be sure in choosing the dress, the bride must simply follow her style and personality. In boutiques or ateliers with qualified personnel, the choice based on one’s needs will be much easier.
I suggest the bride be accompanied only by one person (mother, sister or best friend); limiting the number of people avoids confusion and bad choices! During this period in fact, only my mother was with me to each appointments and it was thanks to her and her constructive criticism that I could find the right dress for me.
The style of the wedding dress (classic, modern, boho-chic, vintage, etc.) also depends on the type of wedding you want to do. There are different types of gowns models (princess wedding dress, A-line, mermaid, redingnote, empire, sheath dress, short, duchesse, etc.): I tried them all and after numerous displays, I finally found what struck me emotionally! Well yes, the wedding dress makes you emotional and makes you cry, triggering that “click” that makes you say: yes, it’s the right one!
- Color and fabric
A white wedding dress is no longer the only option, consider when buying a wedding dress, is picking a colour that best suits you. Choosing the right prom gown in a color that’s flattering to your skin tone: ivory, champagne. cream, light pink, blush. Make sure to choose the right fabric for you wedding gown suited for the season, which in my opinion is the fundamental element for the creation of the wedding dress: lace, chiffon, satin, organza, silk, tulle, taffeta, damask, voile or velvet.
- Wedding dress fittings
It’s important to schedule 2 or 3 fittings before the big day: very often during the wedding preparations the bride is subjected to moments of stress and her weight is fluctuating. Schedule fittings for the bride are important to make sure that her dress is not so tight and that it will inhibit her ability to move around and dance.
- Dress change yes or no
The bride wears her wedding dress after the ceremony until lunch/dinner. I decided to change my princely dress before cutting the wedding cake. I wanted to surprise my husband and take his breath away even in this second special moment. I also wanted to feel more free to be able to dance all night with him. And so my second dream as a child came true, with a magnificent mermaid dress.
