Getting married is one of the biggest and most important events in your life. There is a ton of planning involved between figuring out guest lists, colors, location and more. The most important part is the wedding dress. The gown is what ties in the decorations & colors, and what makes the bride the center of attention. There are two important aspects of a dress that will impact your search: the style and price.
The easiest place to start is the style. There are five and they will. The most popular is the A-Line/Princess. It balances out top heavy shapes and hides some tummy bulge, and is very flattering to most body types. The Mermaid/Trumpet hugs curves and is great if you have a curvy body type. The Empire has a high waistline and the fabric below falls to the floor. The Sheath/Column runs vertically from the shoulders to the floor and does not flare out like the others. They are body hugging & look best on slim body types. The Ball Gown is also known as the Cinderella or Fairy-Tail dress. It is usually paired with a bodice and flare out dramatically at the hips. My dress was an A-Line/Princess with a halter neckline and a lot of bead work.
The price is a bit trickier to navigate. It will increase or decrease depending on style, decorations, color & sometimes size. Many stores are going to run higher than others, especially if it a well-known name, and many times they will purposely push the higher-price dress at you. If you already know your size and dress style, it opens up your shopping options quite a bit. You’ll find better prices online at sites like prombee.co.uk carries a huge selection of wedding dress, as well as the bridesmaid, flower girl, and any other dresses & accessories you need. The best part is that you can either order a custom size with your measurements, which eliminates the need of getting alterations done, or just use the regular sizes. That way, you don’t have to worry as much about not having been able to try the dress on before ordering.
Overall, even though it can be difficult, finding the perfect wedding dress can be done. It helps if you have a general idea ahead of time of the styles and price range you are aiming it. Plus, if you know that ahead of time you will be able to shop online as well.
