As they say, say yes to the dress. But before that happens, it is important to have the right mindset and some helpful tips. It is worth using them to enjoy your perfect wedding dress later.
Many women already as little girls imagine their wedding, including a white dress – beautiful, in which they will feel like princesses. It is worth making your dreams come true and wearing a one-of-a-kind wedding dress on the most important day of your life. It is a good idea to start looking for a wedding dress sooner rather than later. It is advisable to start your search early enough. It’s best to get it about half a year earlier, so that it can be sewn, prepared and corrected by tailors
It is certain that such a creation should be appropriately selected to your figure. The most popular cuts are:
- a-line – fitted top and slightly flared bottom, without a clearly marked waist; it is very versatile – will work for almost every body type, both slim and plus size;
- princess (princeska) – corset top and strongly flared bottom, emphasized waist; it perfectly covers both wide and narrow hips; it is not recommended for short ladies because it may overwhelm them;
- fishtail (mermaid) – very tight fitting, extending from the thighs or knees down; perfect for an hourglass figure; not recommended for women with a protruding tummy;
- empire – cut off under the bust and let go down freely; exposes shoulders and bust; hides extra centimeters in the waist or hips.
Don’t be discouraged
Choosing a dress is very exciting and we often look forward to our first try-on. Remember not to get discouraged if you don’t find your dream creation right away. In this case, patience and persistence are important, because you may find that you meet the best model only in the fifth salon.
The first best one? But don’t buy right away
There are times when the first dress we try on seems perfect and exactly what we want. That’s great, but you shouldn’t make a hasty decision and buy it right away. It is a good idea to try on more dresses in different styles to see what you look and feel best in. It is also good to visit several salons.
Do not reject the dress because it looks bad on the hanger
The wedding dress, as well as any other clothes, may look completely different on the hanger than on the figure. Do not reject the model, which on the hanger or even on a mannequin looks quite miserable or not very inviting. It may turn out that putting it on, we will look stunning.
Match the dress to your style
It’s also important to remember that your wedding dress should work with your personality and character. Not every woman will feel good in a fitted fishnet, although it might seem that this cut is the most beneficial for her. It is a good idea to have a good time and to be able to get to know each other as well as to be able to find the right style for your needs. We cannot hide behind a dress or choose a particular model just because it is the hit of the season.
Only one cut and no other? Wrong approach
It may happen that we set our minds only on one particular cut and only try it on. This is not the right approach, because it may turn out that ultimately the best wedding dress is the one, which we have not taken into account at all. It is worth trying on different cuts and then making a decision.
White is not equal to white
Choosing a wedding dress is not just about choosing the cut, length or accessories. It is also important to choose its color – matched to the complexion of the bride. In spite of appearances, most Polish women will not look good in snowy, cold white. Fortunately, salons offer a wide range of shades – ecru, pearl, ivory, diamond white, champagne or vanilla. Remember that the wrong color will emphasize the redness of our skin, add years and make us look tired and even sick.
Sit down, raise your arms and dance
A wedding dress is usually worn during the wedding ceremony and throughout the wedding reception. As you know – we don’t just stand in it (as we do in the salon). For many hours we will be walking, sitting, jumping and dancing. It is therefore crucial that our dress is comfortable and does not restrict our movements. So, during the first fitting, let’s not stand in front of the mirror, but let’s walk around, make a few movements and check if everything is okay.
