Choosing your dress – one of the most special moments your planning process. Unfortunately for some brides, this can also be the most stressful and mind boggling. Here are a few tips to help you decide, when you can’t pick just one.
1. Give yourself some time
Take a breather and think about it for a little rather than feeling pressured to make a choice. Make another appointment to try on the gowns again, to see them with fresh eyes.
2. Take a look from top to toe
Consider it all – your hair style, accessories, shoes. There are a lot of items that will complement your dress, maybe it’s the perfect complement to your Loubuotin pumps.
3. Trust your gut
Think back to that first style you thought about, when you first started looking or before he popped the question. It may be the one that best represents you and your style.
4. Pick at random
Draw one of the options out of a hat. You’ll either be stoked or disappointed, then you’ll know which one to choose.
5. Take a snap
Take a photo of your dress options, looking at them from a different perspective may help. After all, it may look different in your wedding photos.
6. Keep it simple
When in doubt keep it simple, go for a classic shape that suits your figure.
7. Be practical
Consider your wedding location and how the elements may effect how comfortable you may be on the day. Certain styles may be more practical than others.
8. Ask for help
Consult your wedding planner or dress designer. They have a tonne of experience and are completely objective, so will tell you how it really looks and which suits you best.
9. Have both!
If your budget allows for it, why not get both? You can have a second reveal at the reception, the only tough decision to make is which to wear first!
10. Keep looking
Maybe you haven’t found ‘the dress’ yet. There may be something out there that you like more than both others, then you’ll know you’re making the right choice.
Try not to stress about the dress! It’s your wedding day and you are going to look stunning either way. Remember your amazing groom-to-be, he won’t care if you’re in a plastic bag or the most extravagant gown ever. Just remember to keep it to your style and forget about everyone else and their opinions. You’ll know the right choice.
