Finding The Right Dress
Keep in mind where your wedding is being held, this will help determine what kind of dress is best for that venue. If you are having a summer outdoor wedding it probably isn’t in your best interest to wear a really heavy ballgown. You’ll be sweating like crazy before you even walk down the aisle. Knowing what season and location, indoor or outdoor, will substantially help your decision making.
When you are trying on dresses pick your favorites and take pictures and videos of yourself trying on the gowns as you are wearing them. You want to see yourself at different angles, sitting, standing and walking. Because that is what you are going to look like at your wedding. The mirror on the wall can only tell you so much, but a camera will show you what you want to see.
Don’t be afraid of wedding dresses that aren’t white. 99% of all brides will order Ivory. It is softer on your skin tone and is very rich looking. Many of the styles of the gowns are NOT available in white. There are so many colored wedding dresses and they are becoming much more popular. If your Touch of Class Bridal stylist suggests an eggshell or even blush gown, don’t dismiss it right away. They are professionals for a reason and might have a good idea of what will look good on you. It is always your decision in the end but don’t dismiss ideas without trying them on.. You never know.
