Necklines

An important detail to consider on your dress is the neckline. This will help you decide what accessories you will be wearing – some necklines scream for a statement necklace, others call for a demure set of pearls. And, in some cases, you will feel that the dress alone is enough! Especially if your choice has an embellished or lace bodice and/or sleeves.

Note that the neckline of your gown has a huge impact on what bra you need to wear. So once you’ve made a final decision on your dress, underwear should be next on your list.

Trains

Nothing makes a Bridal statement quite like a sweeping train. We’ve listed the different lengths you’ll find on our handy pin below so you can be sure to ask for the right type if you’re desperate for that wow factor. And remember to ask your seamstress to add a wrist loop, or a bustle if you prefer, so that you can dance in your gown later on. Or you could always get a second, shorter dress for the evening 😉

  1. I’m starting my wedding dress shopping this weekend- so this is perfect timing! Love the download- and pretty much every RMW post! On the download I LOVE the dress on the first page (you can see the back of the bride and the top half is embellished) Could you let me know the designer please? Definitely one I’d love to try! Thank you! x

  2. Thank you for this feature.
    I don’t know if anyone else has had this experience but I went dress shopping and it was the WORST EXPERIENCE EVER. It has totally put me off dress shopping and although I know I need to wear something, getting married in my PJs is looking appealing at the moment (I can accessorize them right?!). Has anyone else felt like this?

    1. Hi Milly
      so sorry to hear you’ve had a bad experience, this always makes us so sad 🙁
      Perhaps have a little break from dress shopping and then hopefully it will rekindle your spirits for when you next attempt it.

      The beautiful dress on page 9 is by our lovely Fashion Pack member Stewart Parvin called ‘Another Love’. You can view the dress and his collection here http://www.rockmywedding.co.uk/fashion-pack/bridal-gowns/stewart-parvin/stewart-parvin-2016-collection/

      All the best & I hope you find ‘the one’ xxxx

      1. Thanks Lorna – I am going for a 4 month break as I am super busy with work etc and then hoping that the next attempt will be more successful 🙁
