Choosing a wedding dress for a bride is always stressful. Sometimes it is more difficult to find your "own" dress than to find a groom! So, where do you start?
First of all, leave the idea of buying a dress depicted in some fashionable magazine. For each bride there is her own perfect dress, and what will look good for one girl, will not necessarily the other. So remember that you are unique and are looking for a dress that will emphasize your personality. Ask yourself: "What kind of a bride do I want to be? What really suits me and what will be really comfortable? "
It is important that your inner feelings do not conflict with the outfit that will be on you on the wedding ceremony.
Style and image
Determine the type of the wedding and its style - will it be a quiet family party or a pompous banquet? A reckless holiday on the beach or a chic reception in a restaurant? For each event you should choose a particular dress, whether it will be a revealing low v back wedding gown or a modest style one.
If you still cannot decide on the style of the wedding, start with yourself! Let the wedding image and style of your dress become a "starting point" in the organizing of the whole celebration. Classical, vintage, retro, art deco, country, gothic or even punk - the choice of style of your dress depends on how willing you are to experiment.
Choice of color
The next important moment is color. There are a lot of nuances to take into account, but the main thing that you need to pay attention to is the warmth of the color.
White color can be both warm and cold. To warm shades belong such colors as ivory, ecru, pearl, cream (with a yellow component). Cold ones are ashy, smoky, silvery, icy-violet (with a blue component).
Silhouette of a dress
One of the crucial stages in choosing a wedding dress is its silhouette. Ideal figure can be achieved with the help of the "right" silhouette of the dress.
So, for example, dresses "Empire" (or the Greek silhouette) will suit miniature girls of medium height because the overstated waist visually pulls the body upwards. The owner of a lush breasts needs to choose a corset-style dress with a high straight or V-neckline. Brides with broad shoulders will certainly have to choose A-silhouette dresses. When choosing the silhouette of a wedding dress, consider the type of your body.
Texture of fabric
Great importance in the visual perception of volume of the dress is the texture of the fabric. This nuance also should not be forgotten when choosing your outfit. The texture is the fabric can be smooth, rough, soft, hard, embossed, transparent, opaque, shiny, matte.
Soft fabrics (chiffon, silk, satin) are good for draperies, folds. Sparkling fabrics (crepe-satin, rhinestones, sequins) create extra volume.
Perhaps the most important part of your wedding image is the accessories. The dress can be very simple, but it's accessories that make it look beautiful. Therefore, pay due attention to their choice. Various belts, brooches, wreaths, tiaras, rims, earrings – are those necessary details that complete the wedding image.
Even a wedding bouquet and your perfume are integral parts of the image of the bride that will complement your silk wedding gown.
Do not use too many small accessories that can disrupt the integrity of the image.
