Hints on choosing the perfect wedding dress

Considerations when choosing a bridal gown:

  • The gown normally constitutes 10-15% of your budget
  • Choose a gown that suits the ambiance of the venue eg if getting married in a cathedral consider a long train
  • White is not for everyone, in fact 80% of brides choose ivory, champagne or gold
  • Choose a shape that flatters your figure – your stylist can help with suggestions
  • Wear the gown as it is designed to be worn eg a hoop under a ball gown
  • If you are being married in a church, synagogue etc ensure that your gown is acceptably modest eg do you need to cover your shoulders etc during the ceremony
  • The mother of the brides gown should work with the overall  colour scheme
  • Purchase your shoes, bra and underwear prior to your first fitting
  • Choose your veil/headpiece when you have your gown on
