Marriage is a one-time, lifetime event. Therefore, there isn’t much leeway to practice or make mistakes. So, to make the bride’s walk down the aisle perfect and unforgettable, one must take great steps to guarantee that everything is done correctly, down to every little feature on the wedding dress.
The Dress Comes First
Although it may go both ways, the theme of your dress should complement your wedding theme. Some couples choose a theme before picking a gown, and then, they make the gown complement the theme they have selected. But for some folks, the selection of gown comes first, and the theme of the wedding follows the theme of the gown. If the gown that catches the bride’s fancy is beaded and formal, then the wedding should be more formal. If the bride chooses a less formal dress, then the wedding should be less formal.
Don’t Overwhelm Yourself with Choices
Yes, it may be enticing to try on every wedding dress that you come across. But what if you find yourself submerged under a pile of 30 or more wedding gowns you think you really like and aren’t able to make a decision? That sort of situation will prove to be stressful – not to mention quite time consuming.
To get out of this, try rendering decisions in stages. You could try a “contest” style way of picking a wedding gown. This works by voting off the one you like the least and them re-assessing the wedding gowns that are left.
Another technique is trying on a number of gowns (say 5) and then picking two you like the best. These will be compared with 5 new gowns. Continue this way until you get your perfect wedding gown.
It may become tempting to say to doubt your choice in your wedding gown. Try to make sure you make your final decision among a number of gowns (5 is good). If you end up with too many to select from, you may get overwhelmed and end up selecting a mediocre gown, or picking the perfect gown but constantly questioning yourself regarding whether you made the right decision or not.
