Dress Shopping

Bridal Gown shopping can be fun and it can be a heartache. Many brides are shopping online due to Budget constraints & many are getting good deals. Think before you Buy!
The first thing a bride should know is what type of style she is going for on her wedding day. The dress can really set the tone and mood for the entire wedding day and should coordinate appropriately. For example, if she is having an outdoor garden wedding, then a tea-length dress would be sweet. However, if the wedding is inside a formal hotel ballroom, then she might be better suited in a full-length gown. Of course, nothing is set in stone, and some rules are meant to be broken, so do think about your venue in choosing your style.

The next thing is to pick a style that compliments your figure. If you're a busty woman, finding a bust shape that works well with your dress is important. While much of this is down to wearing the right bra, certain necklines will accentuate your feminine qualities better than others. If the lower half of your figure appears fuller, it's important to create more balance. Add some style upstairs; choose wide necklines, puffy sleeves and tops that hug the shoulders. Tops with wide-set straps will also help to visually widen your shoulders and chest area. If you're a full figured woman, strapless and sweetheart styles will accentuate your bust and curves. Go to the nearest bridal salon or any department store and try on some gowns. Get a feel for what fabrics, styles, colors, and embellishments flatter your body type, height and skin tone. You'll find out if you are not meant to wear a lace dress. Be on the look out for the pushy salesperson, who only wants to make a sale!

After you have selected the style you want, go shopping.  Start shopping in your family's closet and attic. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wearing a Used or re-purposed dress. Remember that dress your Cousin wore years ago that you loved? Give Her a call.
