How to Avoid Wedding Dress Wobbles

wedding dress wobblesCome on girls finding a wedding dress can be difficult enough as it is, without you giving yourself added pressure of doubting your own judgement.

If you follow these simple rules they will go some way to helping you avoid wedding dress wobbles.

  1. Give yourself plenty of time to find your wedding dress. Start looking 12 months in advance. Browse the internet, bridal magazines, wedding fayres and bridal shops. At this stage in the search this should be seen as research to help you decide on which styles you like.
  2. Do not make any spontaneous decisions and buy a dress on a whim. Remember your wedding day will be one of the most important days in your life, so try not to rush into any hasty decisions; even if you are being offered a discount. Make a note of the dress and the designer and sleep on it.
  3. In the morning see if you can find the dress on the internet and then superimpose an image of your head (from a recent photo) onto the dress this way you are looking at the dress with a fresh pair of eyes and seeing how you will actually look in it.
  4. Build your accessories around the dress rather than the otherway round. By doing so you reassure yourself that this is the right dress and you are just looking for accessories to complete the look.
  5. Find a hair style to complement your dress. The best way to do this is to book an appointment with your hairdresser, take along a photograph of you in your wedding dress and your wedding accessories. Again this will help you achieve the look you are after, all focused around your wedding dress.
  6. At any of these stages you can enlist the help of a trusted friend, this may well be your Chief Bridesmaid. They should be someone who is confident enough to give you their honest opinion, should you call upon it.
  7. Once you have created your perfect wedding look do not allow your judgement to be clouded by looking at other wedding dresses. Think about how painstaking the time and effort was for you to create such a look, a look that will not only allow others to admire you but for you to feel beautiful also. Trust your judgement.
  8. I should point out however that starting your search 12 months is ideal if you are looking for a dress which is timeless. However if you prefer something which is more of the moment do bear in mind dress trends are constantly evolving. Therefore it maybe better to wait closer to your wedding date in order to find your dress whilst still ensuring that you allow yourself enough time for your fittings.
