What is your ideal wedding dress?

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Admit it. As a young girl, you imagined yourself as a bride looking exactly like Cinderella, right? Don't deny it. We all dreamed of being the beautiful princess in a fairy tale wedding.

Well, it's time to turn dreams into reality. Perhaps your idea of the perfect wedding dress has changed over the years, but your desire to be a beautiful bride certainly hasn't.

If you haven't chosen a dress yet, browsing through bridal magazines will surely inspire you. Bring photos of your favorite dresses to your local bridal boutique; this will help you eliminate all those dresses you don't like and instead focus on trying on only those that you do.

Don't be disheartened if the "perfect" dress you saw in your $10 bridal magazine doesn't look as good on you as it did on the model. This is where the staff at the bridal boutique can be of help. An experienced consultant will be able to see what you like about the dress (telling her outright will also help), take your body shape and height into account, and recommend a dress that works for you. It might take a few tries, but hopefully, you'll start to get a better idea of which type of dress will show off your best features. Bringing along someone who is willing to give an honest opinion is another great idea.

If you really want to see how the dress will look on your wedding day, have your hair and make-up done exactly how you will wear it during the ceremony when you go to try on dresses. That way you'll be able to see the overall effect. Last but certainly not least, don't blow your entire budget on your dress. You're planning a wedding, after all, and the purchases have just started!
