Points to consider when picking a bridal dress

Gelinlik seçerken dikkat edilmesi gerekenler

  • First of all, as bridal dress rehearsals can take a pretty long time, you should not delay the shopping process.

  • Determine your budget in advance so as to make the right choices without stressing.

  • If you do not have any idea of what is new in bridal dress trends, first check out some wedding magazines and websites.

  • Opt for ready-made models rather than tailor-made ones if you have a short time to prepare for your big day. This process requires a dedicated amount of time and effort.

  • In order not to feel tired or stressed, remember that the best time for bridal dress shopping is the early part of the day when it is less crowded.

  • Knowing your body shape well will increase the chance of choosing the right dress. That is why, make sure that you know whether you are an hourglass, pear, apple or rectangular shape.

  • Trying on many dresses can leave you confused in the end, so it is better to take your camera with you or use your mobile to take photos of your favorite models.

  • If your wedding venue is already set, you may also want to consider the venue atmosphere when choosing your dress. For example, say you chose a bohemian bridal dress and your wedding will take place at a hotel, with such a combination you may not achieve the desired effect. The wedding concept and season, on the other hand, are also two of criteria that are as important as the wedding venue.

  • One other important aspect in addition to the wedding venue, concept and season is to be in harmony with the groom’s attire. In the end, all eyes will be on you that day. So you and the groom should also consider each other’s choices before deciding on your dress. For example, if the groom is very tall you should take this into consideration when picking your dress.

  • You should have a maximum of two people with you so that you don’t get confused when trying on dresses. More people can mean more ideas but also more confusion. But make sure that those two people are people you can count on when it comes to ideas.

  • Measurements are also very important. Bridal dresses are generally chosen based on the widest part of the body. But there are some designers who create according to different measurements relating to hip and bust sizes. Keep this in mind and the fact that bridal dresses are usually two sizes bigger compared to normal measurements.

  • Decide on the needlework and fabric by considering your body shape. Designs with lace and silk touches may go well with thinner figures, but this may not be the case for bigger figures.

  • If you have already decided on the accessories you will wear, you should definitely take them with you when trying on dresses and at the final moment of purchase.

  • Don’t hesitate to ask questions of the shop assistants helping you. Make sure that you don’t have any question marks in your mind.

  • In order not to face any unexpected situations, ask the store when they will deliver your dress and how many fittings you will need to attend.

  • Upon deciding on your bridal dress, go to the first rehearsal with the shoes you will wear at your wedding.
