8 Tips For Picking The Perfect Wedding Dress

When little girls spend their math classes daydreaming of weddings (instead of winning the World Series -- not to say you can't do both), what do they dream of first? The perfect wedding dress, of course: a gown in white satin with a bustle and sweeping train, the perfect embellishments, and the perfect shoes.

Wedding Dresses

There are few occasions in our modern world where a woman finds herself in a position to wear a no-holds-barred ball gown, much less a crystal tiara, and all too many where she's called on to wear to a neutral suit or uninspiring "biz-caz" combo. No wonder that with so many brides, their wedding plans start with the dress.

Many of these brides are lucky. They may search high and low, braving chilly department stores and pushy bridal shops, but eventually they come face-to-face with The One. They know this is The One because they start crying, or their mother or friends all start crying at once. Suddenly the rest of the planning ... the theme, the tone, the right kind of venues ... it all springs to life.

Other brides aren't as fortunate. They've searched just as hard, working their way through shops across three or four states, but they haven't found The One. Instead, they've found three or four Contenders, all of which are serviceable and nice, but not earth-shattering enough to tell them that now is definitely time to stop the searching and get on with the planning. These brides have it harder.

Even if you're the first kind of bride, buying the dress is such a momentous decision that you run a risk of falling into that wallet-skinning category known as the Two-Dress Bride. Here are some tips for picking the perfect dress and avoiding that awful fate.

  • Bring the entourage, but don't buy. It's fun and useful to bring your mother, friends or sisters on the dress-shopping expedition. It gives you a buffer against an overbearing sales staff, and it's fun to see if your impressions of perfection are shared by your loved ones, not to mention how they'll love being part of such an important decision. But no matter how enthusiastic everyone gets over a certain dress, don't buy in the heat of the moment. Give yourself time to reconsider and buy with a cool head later, alone. The vast majority of dresses are non-returnable, so when you've bought it, you've bought it.
  • Don't buy too early unless you must. Bridal gowns can take four to ten months to come from the manufacturer, but there's no reason to buy over a year ahead of time, unless your chosen style is going to be discontinued. Give yourself some time to sit on your decision. Once you pick a gown, you'll see a hundred others nearly like it. You'll become a walking encyclopedia on that style of gown. All the better if you still have room to choose.

  • If you've bought "The One," stop shopping. Any more window-shopping at this point will only lead you down the road toward the dreary land of Two-Dress Brides. What you need to do instead is remember that blissful feeling of having tried on The One. Go get The One out of the closet, put it on and stand in front of the mirror. You'll remember exactly why it's The One. 
  • If you've bought "The One" and can't stop shopping, get a second opinion. Show your first and second choices to other brides. Be honest -- tell them you've already remortgaged your condo for the first dress, but you think this second dress might be It. They'll be truthful, too -- the first one was better. You'll feel reassured.
  • Don't tell yourself "I'll sell the old dress and choose a new one." This old saw of the Two-Dress Bride just won't work. You'll never get more than a fraction of what you paid for your first dress if you bought it new.
  • Don't be afraid to aim high -- no matter what your budget. Some brides knew from the start they wanted a designer label, but life just didn't cooperate by making them heiresses. Yet all is not lost if you're willing to shop courageously. At any given moment, a better-heeled bride is selling her once-used St. Pucchi or Ulla-Maija on eBay. She paid thousands upon thousands, but you, smart shopper, will pay half that or less. To take this road, you must shop earlier than other brides so you'll have a choice of gowns. Always pay with a credit card so you'll have recourse if the dress doesn't arrive in acceptable condition, and again, shop early so you can buy another if necessary. Shop courageously, but not recklessly.

  •  Luxury Wedding Dresses Shop online, but never send a check. Bridal gown businesses sometimes have a way of disappearing overnight. No matter what the proprietor tells you, never make a purchase as large as a wedding gown without the charge back protection of a credit card. If they say they can't take plastic, move on. 

  • Don't hold out forever for The One. Some brides never find The One. What they do find is a few dresses they look beautiful in. If you're this bride, try starting your planning from the theme instead of the dress. You'll probably eventually get sick to death of dress shopping. When that happens, "good enough" really will be good enough. Concentrate on other aspects of the wedding that mean a lot to you, like the venue, the food, or the inevitable adoration of your soon-to-be husband.

Bridesmaid, the maid of honor, is the next important to the bride herself. She not only stands next to the bride but also carries her flower basket and takes care of all the needs of the bride. Bridesmaid is usually a close friend of the bride or a young cousin of hers.

Tips to buy a perfect bridesmaid dress cheap but classy

A bridesmaid dress should be one that complements the bride and her dress in all ways. While buying the dress there are lots of bewilderment, to avoid this keep in mind the following –

  • Colour – the rule of thumb for buying a bridesmaid dress is that it should complement the bride’s dress. The bride is the focal point of the evening, so this should not be distracted by anything flashy on the bridesmaid dress. Traditionally a bridesmaid’s dress is sober white. To give a formal look, choose an immaculate white and black. The bridesmaid will look stylishly elegant in this. To give a romantic look to your young bridesmaid, choose a white dress laced with black, or a black wrap. Apart from these colour that are forever traditional and dramatic, soft pastel colours like cream, baby pink, soft sea blue, lilac are much in vogue.
  • Fabric- this aspect of the dress is very important for it decides the fall and the comfort. To get the perfect fall for the bridesmaid dress, go for chiffon, crepe or georgette. Heavy stuff is a strict no-no. Fabric should be smooth and comfortable on your body. You should be able to carry it off. Selection of fabric heavily depends on weather, the time of the year when the ceremony is to be held. Summers call for lighter fabric while for winters silk is good, though silk dress will be on a costlier side. For a cheap bridesmaid dress that looks splendid, there’s a tip – TRY A NORMAL FABRIC DRESS WITH SILK LACE OR SEQUINNED WORK AT NECK. This will not only be different but also simply classy. Wrinkle free fabric is more comfortable.

  • Place of wedding- in today’s era, when couples are experimenting with very new places to get married like underwater or sky, this aspect holds great importance. For a ballroom wedding, dress can be flowy but on the contrary for a beach wedding, length of the dress needs to be cut short and fabric drip free.
  • Length of dress – you can choose between floor length or tea length dress. Now this decision rests primarily upon two factors – (a) Age of Bridesmaid – A very young girl, may not be able to carry floor length dress and trip over to create a pandemonium on the final day. Also for a beach location wedding, a tea length bridesmaid dress is the best. Decide on the length keeping these factors to avoid any embarrassing situation.
  • Style – though the traditional style is a one piece evening gown. But following the contemporary styles, much in vogue is a two piece dress. It can be a mix ‘n match of contrasting colour. Play around with colours a little but as long as you feel comfortable. Do not overdo it.
  • Accessories- in the anxiety to buy the perfect bridesmaid dress, we usually tend to forget the accessories. But GOOD SELECTION OF ACCESSORIES CAN MAKE A CHEAP BRIDESMAID DRESS LOOK PRICY and that’s the trick. 

(a) Jewellery – keep them simple. A pearl set looks classy or you can simply try danglers to dramatize the 
(b) Flowers – match the colour of your dress with flowers. It will greatly accentuate the complete look.
(c) Shoes – comfortable shoes of the right height is the key to a good dress. A biting shoe might force you 
     to sit through the dance party and that for sure will be utterly miserable.

It’s not the price of the dress; it’s how you carry it. Use a little creativity of your own to personalize and instantly your bridesmaid dress will be beautiful.
