We all know that most (if not all) brides-to-be ask the perennial “What will I wear?” as soon as their beau proposes. Though there are infinite possibilities to answer this dilemma, here are some questions that you should ask to help you narrow down your choices for a wedding gown.
What is my body type?
This is one question you have to answer honestly. Coming up with a realistic answer pretty much narrows down your choices; this—with the overwhelming variations of bridal gowns—is a good thing. Figure out your body type (hourglass, straight, inverted triangle, or pear?) and determine which style would accentuate your assets best. Take into consideration your height, too.
How much can I afford to spend?
Keep in mind that you’ll be spending more if your wedding gown has more details. That said, if the wedding dress you had in mind is a ball gown with multiple layers of diaphanous fabric, or a fully beaded number, turning that vision into reality does not come cheap. Be upfront with your designer about your budget, so that s/he can suggest styles that could work.
At what time and season will we hold the wedding?
A full-length wedding gown in a heavy fabric could look elegant for an event at dusk, but it could spell disaster for a morning ceremony in the sweltering heat. Talk to your designer about the time and season of the wedding, so that s/he can school you about the different fabric weights and bridal gown styles appropriate for your wedding. Pay attention to comfort; you’ll be wearing your wedding dress the entire day.
