Of course, your wedding day is about celebrating your new life together with your husband and joining your family. It’s a beautiful ceremony that will change your whole life. Yet in the midst of the “I Do”s and all the congratulations, the one thing that most people will be thinking about is how amazing you look in your dress. When you look back at photos from the day, you’ll think about how great you felt in your dress, and you’ll look at your gown with fond memories.
It’s important that you find the perfect dress to commemorate the perfect day. Here are a few tips for finding the right dress:
Choose a Style that Matches the Theme
If you’re planning a beachside wedding, a huge A-line gown isn’t the right choice. Nor is a boho chic gown the best choice for a country club event. When you are shopping for wedding dresses in Toronto, you want to think about what kind of theme, or style, you’ll have for your wedding.
In some cases, you might find the dress first and decide on the theme later. Either way, you’ll want to have a loose idea when you’re shopping.
Think about Your Bridesmaids
Most women choose their bridal gown first then choose their bridesmaids’ dresses. But it’s important for you to have a good idea of what you might want your bridesmaids to wear when you are shopping for your dress. For example, you might find the perfect dresses for your bridesmaids that look great on them and fit all their body types, but those dresses might not match the gown you chose.
Your bridesmaids’ dresses don’t need to match your gown, but they do need to complement it. Make sure you and your bridal party all look great in your gowns and together.
Choose a Style that Flatters Your Body Type
An A-line gown flatters most body types, which is why it is such a popular dress type. But you should expand your search and consider some other styles that could also flatter your body type. For example, if you are a classic pear and are heavier on the bottom, you might be tempted to hide your hips with the A-line gown. Yet a mermaid gown like those offered by Mori Lee can flatter your hips and give you a more curvaceous and sexy look.
Get outside your comfort zone and try on some new styles when you are shopping. You might be surprised at the dresses that flatter you best.
Try on as many dresses as you can while you are shopping so you can see how a wide variety of styles look on your body. Follow these tips to find a dress that you will love wearing and that you will love looking back on for many decades to come. You may even pass it down to your daughter to wear at her wedding one day.
