I don’t attend a lot of weddings to be honest. I mean, I have friends that attend a wedding every weekend, I swear! This weekend you will see a picture of them at so-and-so’s wedding, and the next weekend another. I digress. I may not attend many weddings, but I do watch the wedding shows on TV, and I’ve noticed a need to advise brides-to-be on how to select the perfect wedding dress. All brides look gorgeous on their wedding day, but some should have been advised better. Below are just some of my tips on selecting a wedding dress (and yes, I have Maid-of-Honor experience, so I know).
Find that right silhouette
A lot of dresses will look great when you are browsing for them in the stores, or looking at simple elegant dresses online. The truth is the best wedding dress for you will look great if you know what type of body type you are – and accentuate the right spots. What flatters your body the most will be your best wedding look.
It doesn’t have to be trendy
The problem with always going with something trendy is that you could regret it when watching your wedding video or going through wedding pictures 5 years down the line. All this can be avoided if you go with what naturally looks good on you, even if it’s trendy, that’s ok, but the important part is that it suits you.
Please carry a camera/camera phone
When going for my best friend’s wedding dress fitting, I ensured I went with my camera so I could take photos of her and we could see how she looked when there was a camera flash and various lighting. She looked great both on and off camera. To avoid any unwanted looks when the cameras are flashing on your big day, make sure you carry a camera with you for your wedding dress fitting.
