When it comes to the many decisions a bride has to make for her special day, choosing a beautiful wedding dress is always one of the most difficult and meaningful.
In some cases, the choice may be straightforward – for example, a daughter may choose to wear her mother’s wedding dress. However, even in this instance, there’s a few considerations the bride may need to think about :-
- does she want to risk any damage to a wedding dress that hold special emotional value?
- maybe she would prefer her own wedding dress to keep?
- maybe she feels her wedding dress should be more modern or a different style?
So, if the lovely bride needs a new wedding dress, here’s a few ideas to help in choosing a beautiful wedding dress.
Look for inspiration
When choosing a beautiful wedding dress, it pays to look for inspiration first. It’s far easier if you’ve seen a style that you like, or even attended a wedding where you loved the bride’s outfit.
these days it’s easy to search online, either directly for wedding dress companies, or even in the media and news at the celebrity weddings! Also consider looking at wedding dress hire services for styles that you may like, or even on social media such as wedding planning services, design companies or wedding outfitters.
Design one’s own wedding dress
What is becoming very popular these days is brides designing their own wedding dresses. Sometimes this may be a little nuance on a traditional style, or even a direct copy of what a famous celebrity bride wore for her wedding.
When choosing a beautiful wedding dress, if you’re still unsure of what you would like, start from the basics. Maybe speak with a wedding dress designer for some ideas, or even start with the basics – length of train, colour, material and see where your dreams take you!
Most wedding dress makers can even duplicate features on other famous dresses these days. Future brides can take a photograph or screenshot of a famous dress or celebrity to a wedding dress maker, who can then produce a very faithful mockup at a fraction of the cost.
Think about the old favourites
It’s not always necessary to bring stress on oneself when choosing a beautiful wedding dress. Whilst most brides would prefer their own wedding dress, sometimes circumstances dictate a more practical solution.
For example, money may be tight so the budget is low, so in this case renting a wedding dress may be an option. There are plenty wedding dress hire companies around with a variety of traditional and modern styles.
The big advantages in hiring wedding dresses is that choosing a beautiful wedding dress becomes far simpler, with the added benefit of potentially saving money.
