Choosing the Perfect Wedding Gown
Selecting a wedding gown is possibly one of the most exciting things for a bride to do. It's one of the most fun aspects of preparing your wedding. Regardless of whether you know what kind of gown you want or not, it is a dress you will remember for the rest of your life. So with this in mind, it's one part of your wedding you do not want to wait until the last minute to plan. Here are some tips to help get your gown-search started!
¨ It's likely that your gown will take about 4-6 months to arrive after you've ordered it. So start looking for the perfect gown EARLY! You'll want to order it as soon as possible so you can have ample time for fittings and alterations well before the BIG DAY. Don't under-estimate how long it might take to find the gown for you. All those fittings will take time.
¨ When it comes to your gown budget, make sure that you take into consideration things such as the headpiece/veil, shoes, gloves, jewelry, undergarments, and other accessories.
¨ Gowns don't look the same on the hangar as they do on you! So try on several gowns. You might find that a gorgeous gown on the hanger might not flatter your figure as you'd hoped. Never choose a gown without trying it on!
¨ Do not be afraid to ask questions to the bridal shop staff. They are there to help, and more than likely, they've sold hundreds of wedding dresses to women like you. In addition, when you speak with the staff, it will give them a good idea for what you are looking for.
¨ Bring a good friend/mother/future mother-in-law/etc? with you. Not only will this will make the shopping more enjoyable, but also this person will have an opinion that you value and not just someone that will tell you how great you look regardless. This could really help when deciding on the perfect dress!
¨ Don't make the mistake of ordering a gown that is "only one size smaller" than your usual size. It's much cheaper to order the right size, instead of ordering smaller with the promise to yourself that you'll lose weight before the wedding.
¨ When your gown arrives in the store, check it out at the store. Try the dress on there before you pay for it.
¨ While trying the dress on, view all angles. If there's something you do not like, be sure to mention it the bridal store staff. More than likely, they will be able to alter and fix the problem.
With all of this in mind, I hope wish you the best of luck in your search for the perfect wedding gown...YOUR perfect gown!

Usually this means "without you my needs won't get met". In other words, "I will start to feel empty, needy, anxious and desperate without my needs being met by you".
