Your wedding is that one chance for you to prepare your dream dress. So, when it comes to planning your wedding outfit, you need to take some time to plan and design it without making hasty decisions. This is why it is important to know what you need to consider before choosing the final look. Take a look at the following tips to see what you can do to plan the perfect bridal look.
Know Your Budget
A wedding outfit contains more than just the dress. So, when you are planning your wedding budget and allocating a certain amount for the dress it means the dress plus other accessories – the veil, shoes, jewellery etc. Planning a budget means you know the price range you can shop within. On one hand, this will prevent you from overspending your wedding money. On the other hand, it will help you to figure where you need to shop and what shops are out of your comfort range.
Figure Your Style
So we all have a dream dress in our mind. But what we see in fashion catalogues, Instagram or Pinterest does not always fit us. So have a couple of outfits ready, but consult your wedding stylist before you finalise on one. You need to look for materials, colours and designs that you like, but also ones that bring the best of you.
Find a Good Bridal Salon
Finding a good bridal salon is another essential part in readying your wedding look. You need to find a salon that would help you look your best and listen to your requirements. Find stylists that you can establish a good professional relationship with so you can consult them whenever you have a doubt regarding your outfit. Make your appointments soon so you have time to consult them and discuss what you want on your final day.
Start Shopping Early
Early shopping saves you from last minute adjustments and wardrobe malfunctions. If possible, start shopping even five or six months before the set wedding date. This will give you enough time to find a designer and get a dress made for you if you do not find a satisfying dress when shopping. Early preparations also allow you enough time for alterations and changes.
Plan Your Accessories
Accessory shopping should always come after choosing the dress. This is because you need to match them with the colour, style and the details of the dress. Decide what your dress goes best with. Do not overdo your jewellery either. For example, if you are wearing a strapless dress with statement earrings, then a necklace is not a must. If you wear a detailed headdress such as a pearl veil, keep the rest of the jewellery minimal and simple.
Try on Your Shoes
Try on your shoes with your dress. The height of the shoes always helps to define the length of the dress. Wear your dress and shoes together in front of a mirror to see if the shoes are too tall and make the dress looks shorter.
If the heel is not high enough, your dress might end up sweeping the floor and making it difficult to walk. Also choose shoes that are easier for you to walk. Avoid stilettoes for garden or beach weddings. Find a comfortable heel for you to dance with or prepare a separate pair of shoes for dancing.
Once these steps are complete, you are all set with your wedding outfit. Plan early and choose wisely and you will look fantastic on your big day.
