Choosing your wedding dress can feel like a terrifying process. Firstly, there are just so, so, SO many options out there it can be overwhelming. Secondly, how on earth do you chose a dress which is supposed to make you look (and feel) like the most beautiful you’ve ever felt??! Hello pressure!!
So together with our lovely Look Book members – some of the Bridal industries very best, we’ve put together a handy guide to choosing your wedding dress to help you! You can download it and save it to your phone or computer so it’s ready to use whenever you may need it.
We’ve also created some super helpful Pins that show you exactly what dress shapes, necklines and trains are available to you! Hopefully it will make your dress search a little more fun – which is what it should be! Happy hunting everyone…
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.
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 😉
