Possibly the most important day of any woman's life is when they are planning their very own wedding event. And although the most important purchase is the wedding dress. By looking at several stores and trying on several styles, you will have a better idea of what is available and what you like. Once you find a store or boutique you like that allows for storage of the dress and you pick one, you are well on your way!
Every girl growing up has a set idea as to what their wedding dress is going to look like. The problem is, is that not always are the dresses we grow up imagining wearing are either in style or accentuate our figures. However, by trying on several types of styles, you are better equipped to make this decision.
No matter the style of the gown – whether it is a clean A-line cut with short sleeves, a gown with tool on the outside of the bottom, a form-fitted long sleeve cut, it is your decision and when you find the right dress you know. Also, plan on a few fittings for your gown – after all, you want to look perfect for your special day ! So, be sure you are comfortable where you are getting your gown from and make sure they work with your ideas as to what you like or do not like about the fit.
Once you have chosen the gown, you must also look for the type of accessories you desire to fit your style. Of the accessories probably the other most tedious job is choosing which style of head piece and veil you would like.
The head pieces could be anything from a hat, to a tiara to a headband that is decorated much like the wedding dress. Once you have picked your style, the veil is the next thing you look at. You can either have one that is attached to your headpiece or you can have it separate. You may even want to add a veil – a cathedral length veil is a common thing and flows to the end of your gown.
After all, you could think you were done, but there are a few more accessories that you could consider. Accessories that some people really like and others do not really get too excited about. Things like gloves (you will also need to determine the desired length of the glove), necklaces, earrings, purse, hose, garter belts, and most definitely shoes. Something that is often overlooked is the wedding guests book. For many, it's the first impression they have of your big day.
Although shoes are in the list last, they are another strong purchase. The reason for this is you want to be comfortable on your wedding day, so pick a style and heel that best fits your comfort zone. If you can not decide, buy a couple take them home and wear them for several hours around the inside of the house – that way if you are not comfortable it is not the right one and you need to return them.
With all of these things in mind, you will be able to handle the day of shopping with less headaches and fewer worries. And by picking the gown first everything else will fall into place.
