The Ultimate Wedding Dress Guide - Before Choosing the Dress

Before Choosing The Dress - What You Need to Do?

Not to make you nervous, but you are about to purchase the most expensive, stared-at, must-be-perfect piece of clothing you will ever wear. Your dress is the wedding's true centerpiece. 

It's like your prom; you know you had to outdo your friends (good competition). Remember?! 

Remember these three things:
(1.) Start shopping as soon as possible, as in 9 to 12 months (or right after you have pegged out your desired venue) before the wedding - it will take the pressure off the process. Place your order according to the time suggested by the manufacturer.
(2.) You'll have found it when you look in the mirror and feel absolutely fabulous.
(3.) Consider your accessories carefully - they need to compliment your overall look.

There are so many styles to choose from - strapless mermaids, spaghetti-straps sheaths, long-sleeved illusion dresses, bateau necklines, billowy ball gowns, etc. The list goes on and on. Follow these steps to find 'the one'... have fun along the way.

How to choose your dream wedding dress USING YOUR BODY TYPE

The 7 Body Types. Which One Are You?

Body Silhouettes  101

Before you choose a wedding dress, you need to figure out your shape - whether you are round/apple, pear-shaped, full-figured, etc. It will help you figure out your type and pick the best style for your body type.

For example, for brides with full-hips or neat hourglass (the first figure), you should consider an A-line, ball gown, flared skirt, or cinched waist style are very flattering to this body type. A broader neckline, such as off-the-shoulder, Portrait, Bateau, or Sabrina, can help balance your overall silhouette nicely. Use this chart to see where you fit.

Dress Shopping Tips

When to start trying on dresses: 10 - 12 months 

Start trying things 10 to 12 months before the big day so you can order by sixth to the eight-month deadline which most salons require (See our wedding checklist). 

If you don't have that much lead time, you may still be able to get a made-to-order gown; some can be made in as few as four weeks. Just be ready to pay for the convenience: Usually, it's an additional 10 to 15 percent, not including rush alteration fees.
