Your Wedding: The Starting Point – 5 Things To Consider When Picking Your Dress

Getting married should always be an exciting adventure, but many brides-to-be often find themselves faced with a myriad of uncertainties and questions once the glow of their upcoming marriage has receded a little and reality has come crashing back in. There are a multitude of decisions to make, a thousand details to oversee, and the prospect of marriage begins to look a little overwhelming.

“Now what?”

Finding a good starting point is important. Planning a wedding is very similar to planning any other large event – find the main theme, and work outwards. For weddings, you should begin your planning process by directing your thoughts towards your ideal wedding dress. Once you’ve found your dress, or at the very least, have a good idea of what you want for your dress, everything else should start falling into place.

Are You Ready For Your Wedding?

Deciding On Your Wedding Dress

Considering how central your wedding dress will be to the rest of your wedding plans, picking the right one for you is extremely important. There are a few things think about when you start looking for your dress:

1) What are your personal tastes?
Your personal dress style will affect the style of your wedding dress a lot. If you are a naturally flashy type of gal, your wedding gown will likely reflect that. On the other hand, if you have a more down-to-earth personality, you might find yourself drawn towards simpler wedding dresses. Be true to yourself and your own tastes when picking your dress to make sure you end up with the perfect match!

2) When is your wedding?
The time of year plays an important role in choosing the type of wedding you will have. For example, depending on where you are in the world, winter weddings are more likely to be indoors, while summer is a great season for outdoor weddings. You will also want to take into account the weather during the season of your wedding. Getting a long-sleeved, heavy wedding dress for summer wedding in a tropical country could well make your wedding one of the most uncomfortable days of your life.

3) What type of wedding do you have in mind?
Outdoors? Indoors? In a church? Something less traditional? You must have some vague ideas of where your wedding should be, even if they are not yet crystal clear in your head. Your wedding dress should suit the type of mood you have in mind for your wedding. An elaborate ball gown could work beautifully with a formal wedding, but be overly ornate for a casual outdoor wedding.

4) What is your budget?
Most brides to be often have a limit to their wedding budget. While we may all wish to have a bottomless spending account from which to plan our weddings, this is unfortunately not always the case. Taking your budget into consideration when looking for your wedding dress may save you a bit of heartbreak later. Look for dresses within (or just a little bit above) your budget, but don’t give up on your ideal wedding dress. Nowadays, there are plenty of websites that offer copycat dresses of celebrity or designer styles.

5) What are the styles of the season?
We’ve placed this particular consideration last, as it’s likely to be the most unimportant of all. Your wedding dress should be unique to you, and following the “Styles of the Season” may not be the best way to find the dress that is really clicks. But having said that, take a look through the season’s styles – it’s a great place to start, and who knows, your dress might be there!

While we’re not saying that finding the right dress is the ultimate solution to fixing all your wedding planning problems, it will definitely help you get started in the right direction. So, ladies, what sort of dress do you have in mind?
