How To Choose the Wedding Dress of Your Dreams

For women, one of the hardest things to decide on is the dress you’ll be wearing on one of the most important days of your life, your wedding day.

Most brides only consider the cut, the style, and the length, but there is more to it than that. These tips will help you in choosing the best wedding dress or gown for you.

Choose the best white.

The classic color for a wedding gown is white, but the color white isn’t as simple as you may think. It has a lot of shades with which to choose from. There’s ivory white, snow white, seashell white, cream, parchment white, champagne white, bone white, vanilla, and many more.

Aside from knowing the different shades, the most important thing is to find what complements your skin’s undertone. Put simply, you have to find out if your skin is warm or cold.

To do that, get a blank piece of white paper and hold it against your chest and neck area. Make sure that you’ve put your hair away and you’re not wearing a color that’s too bright. Don’t use your face as it is a bit redder than the rest of your body. Compare your skin to the whiteness of the paper. If it appears reddish, you have a cool undertone. If your skin appears yellowish, you have a warm undertone. 

Another way to know is by considering the jewelry you wear. If gold looks better on you, you have a warm undertone. If silver looks better on you, you have a cool undertone. This brings us to the next point. 

Your accessories should match your dress.

Just like how your skin’s undertone is important, it’s best if the jewelry you’ll be wearing matches the rest of your outfit. If your dress has a warm shade of white, you must make sure that your veil has a similar shade. If your dress has pearls on it, try to match the color palette with your jewelry. If your dress has crystals on it, you should where gems rather than pearls to make sure everything complements each other. 

Get fitted before attempting to lose weight.

Almost everyone targets a skinnier body as their wedding day approaches. Brides are often advised that since they are trying to lose weight, their wedding gown should be a few sizes smaller. However, try not to succumb to this advice as not everyone achieves their target figure. It almost always ends up with you doing a crash diet, a week before the wedding. Should the dieting not work, you will have no choice but to get the dress readjusted by adding fabric; or worse, you will have to suffer on your wedding day wearing a tight dress you can barely breathe in. Remember that it’s easier to trim than to add fabric. 

Your wedding gown should fit your body, your skin and your style. Considering these tips will definitely make sure you’re the belle of the ball.
