You found your one true love, got engaged and are now in the process of planning a wedding. Now, comes the search for the “one” wedding dress or attire you will wear as you make the walk down the aisle. With so many wedding garb choices available, it might seem like an endless search for the perfect dress. Avoid needless frustration or confusion, it is helpful to organize your thoughts and spend some time thinking about what you really want in a bridal gown before making a decision. Read on for more information about “is your wedding dress the one”.

Look Inward

Give yourself some quiet time to reflect and ponder your likes and dislikes in a wedding dress. Determine what a priority is for you when choosing a gown. Look inward and understand your personality and sense of style and how a dress might mirror these aspects. Be honest and true to yourself as you decide on the variety of factors that may contribute to your choice of gown including budget, style, comfort and personal appeal.

Describe Your Personal Style

For some people asking “what is my style” is an easy question, for others it requires a bit more introspection. To get started, try this and choose three words that best describe your personal sense of style. Types of style may include classic, modern, preppy, bombshell, fashionista, rebel, luxury, chic, rocker, minimalist, eccentric, sophisticated, sporty, bohemian, elegant, simple or romantic. Include attributes and characteristics of yourself such as confident, sexy, fabulous, stunning, beautiful, funny, trendy, shy or friendly.

Is it Complementary to Your Body Shape?

Style your wedding dress according to your body type. Identify your body shape by assessing your overall general form: body shapes include pear, apple, hourglass, inverted triangle or column forms. Focus on emphasizing your best features or by deemphasizing other areas on your body. Different bridal gown silhouettes compliment different body types in many ways such as highlighting a curvaceous frame or creating a slimming effect. Basic bridal gown silhouettes include ball gown, mermaid, empire, sheath and A-line.

Visualize and Imagine

Enjoy a little imagination exercise by daydreaming about your big day. Ask yourself if your wedding is formal or informal and where does it take place? The purpose of this exercise is to make a connection of the venue to your personal style. Beach weddings might have a barefoot bride in a sundress and large formal weddings might inspire floor-length bridal gowns with long cathedral length veils.
