Wedding Planning – Choosing the Gown

The dress is always the highlight of all wedding fantasies and make-believe. Ever since their youth, people will most often dream of a beautiful princess-bride in a snowy white, ethereal wedding dress of stunning beauty. So it is no surprise that choosing the perfect wedding dress will be one of the most challenging and exciting parts of planning your wedding.

Wedding Planning and Preparations

Marriage is – ideally – a once-in-a-lifetime event. There isn’t much leeway to practice or make mistakes. So to make the bride’s entrance down the carpet perfect and memorable, one must take great pains to ensure everything is done correctly – down to every little detail on the wedding dress and wedding planning.

From watching fantasy-like weddings on TV, reading about them in books and magazines, or hearing about them from other people, many brides-to-be form an image of the kind of wedding dress they would like to wear at their wedding. Many people take a watch-and-learn stance as they formulate, plan and dream up their ideal wedding dress.

If your time has come, and you are shopping for the perfect dress to make your wedding dreams come true, then you have come to the right place. Here are a few tips to help you get over the wedding dress hump will less sweat.

The Dress Comes First

Although it may go both ways, the theme of your dress should follow your desired theme – or vice versa. Some couples choose a theme before choosing a gown, making the gown fit the music they have chosen. But for some people, the choice of dress comes first, and the wedding theme follows the gown’s theme. So if the shift that catches the bride’s fancy is ultra-beaded and formal, the wedding may be more formal. On the other hand, if the bride chooses a less traditional dress, the marriage may follow a less conventional route.

Don’t Overwhelm Yourself with Choices

It may be tempting to try every gown that comes your way. But what if you find yourself buried under a pile of 20 or so dresses you think you like and can’t make a decision? That sort of scenario will prove to be a terrible headache – not to mention a great source of stress.

To avoid this, try making decisions in stages. For example, you could try an ‘American Idol style of choosing a gown. You could vote off the least liked one and then reevaluated the remaining gowns.
Another method is trying five gowns and then choosing two of the best. These ‘champions’ will be pitted against five more new gowns. Continue the tournament until you get to the perfect gown.

It may become tempting to say, “Aw, but that other gown might have been better.” Instead, try to make sure you make your final decision among 5 gowns. If you end up with too many to choose from, you may get overwhelmed and end up choosing a cheap dress or choosing the perfect gown but forever asking yourself whether you made the right decision.

Choose Wisely in Wedding Planning

And choose a wise companion; take one or two of your closest friends or confidants who know about wedding dresses and style. Their advice will come in handy when choosing a gown. Also, check the durability and quality of the shift, the material, and the accessories. You don’t want your gown falling apart on you during the ceremonies.
