Finding your Dream Wedding Dress

Updated: Oct 11, 2018


Many of us probably have an idea of what we would like our wedding dress to be from a very young age, either from watching TV or just walking past wedding shops. Having worn a lot of fancy dresses nothing beats the feeling you get from a wedding dress; you feel like Cinderella in a fairy-tale about to walk down an aisle to meet your prince. It is a beautiful feeling indeed. That's why it is essential to choose a dress that makes you feel comfortable, confident and beautiful.

But it can often be a challenge finding 'The One'. So many fits, styles and fabrics to get through and trying to decide on the perfect dress made just for you. Here are a few tips to help you find your 'One'.



When trying on wedding dresses for the first time, you sort of get a feel for what you like and don't like straight away. You are encouraged to try on as many styles as you can by the bridal shop assistant because the fit may look different on your body than it does on the hanger. Every dress is beautiful and unique in its own way and sometimes it's hard to choose when they all look beautiful. Key moment is when you have to take off the dress. If you've found The One, you definitely won't want to take it off. You want to stay in it as long as possible and spend every second in it.



There are thousands and thousands of dresses out there with different necklines, silhouettes and it can get pretty overwhelming trying them all. Before walking into a bridal shop, make some notes about your personal style. You could be edgy, couture, vintage, classic, modern or just unique. When you start trying on dresses it will be easier to find dresses because you fall in love easily and quickly with the dresses that match your personal style.



This is the one day that all eyes will be on you, so you know you have to look your best. It's not always getting an expensive stunning dress that looks great but you need to also feel stunning whilst standing in it. The One will make you feel like a million bucks and beautiful the minute you wear it without even trying. That's a winner!



Stats show that 80% of women believe that the wedding dress is the most important part of the day- if it doesn't fit with your venue or your theme it has a tendency of looking out of place. Fitting the search for your wedding dress around your chosen theme/venue helps in narrowing down the search in finding your 'One' as you know exactly what you are looking for. Example- A princess-themed wedding calls for a ball-gown style dress.
