What’s more important to a woman – her wedding or the wedding dress? A logical thinking shall place both at equal grounds and it’s an absolute no-brainer that both are inter-dependent; the problem arises when the designs are more than necessary and the budget knows no constraints.
- The right dress for a wedding
Most women leave it upon the shoulders of their friends and families when it comes to selecting a bridal gown; what they overlook are certain qualities that make for an efficient and trusted decision-maker. The person shouldering the responsibility of choosing the bridal dress must be savvy about both current and olden trends; the technicalities regarding the fabrics but above all, a fine sense of aesthetics.
- Factors influencing the bridal attire
Style comes first in this aspect. There’s no problem if the bridal dress is selected first keeping the general shape or the very basic styles in mind. A plain and simple ball gown style or the princess style is the one most opted for; added with an empire waist or a ballerina or cocktail influence usually gives rise to something adorable. However, the add-ons or modifications must be tried only if the basic style chosen compliments the bride’s form and shape; once that’s decided, it is time to select the other contributing factors like (but are not limited to) the material of the wedding dress, the neck line, embellishments and the color, which are also person specific. For example, square necklines shall compliment women with smaller forms while V-necks are for medium-to-queen sized women; instead of the traditional white, dresses in ivory or cream can be smart options. Added with embellishment like pearls and/or crystals, a woman’s dream bridal gown can turn up into something better than what she expected.
But nothing shall look good on the bride if she doesn’t feel comfortable and confident in her wedding dress. It’s only possible if she looks and feels good in it; else, what was expected to leave upon her and the guests a lasting impression might end up in some real agony that nothing perhaps shall be able to allay.
