GBE NYC 2015 125Congratulations on your engagement, one of the most exciting moments in life. Preparing for your wedding can be exhilarating and exhausting at the same time. One of the main tasks of planning a wedding involves selecting your wedding attire, the garment you will be wearing to your wedding. When it comes to selecting a wedding dress, there are so many choices it may seem daunting at first. With a little organization and understanding of what you want, you can begin to narrow your choices and help alleviate wedding dress stress. Read on for helpful tips on choosing a wedding dress.

Researching Wedding Styles

Get started in the search for your perfect wedding dress by doing some research. Bridal magazines are a great source of inspiration and are available on most newsstands. Attend a bridal fashion show or wedding expo in your area, exhibitors are often helpful and ready to answer your questions. Pinterest features many boards devoted to wedding and bridal gown pins. Surfing the internet will bring millions of links to various wedding sites some relevant and others not so, the key to a successful web search is the efficient use of key words. Shop at your nearest retail bridal stores to learn about the latest styles and find your dream dress.

Does the Dress Coordinate With Your Venue?

Choose your wedding dress to complement your venue; your wedding location can be helpful in deciding on the type of dress to wear. A chapel length tulle gown may not work as well for some beach weddings and the same for a short white strappy cotton dress at grand ballroom formal weddings. Different venues present different formalities and dress options such as beach, courthouse, garden, church, backyard, country club or hotel.

Is the Wedding Dress a Fit for Your Body Shape?GBE NYC 2015 071

Select a wedding dress silhouette that is complementary to your body shape and fits well. Common body shapes include pear, apple, hourglass, column and inverted triangle. Standard types of silhouettes include ball gown, A-line, mermaid, sheath, tea length, sheath and mini dress. When trying on dresses, take note of how you feel in it. Choose a dress that makes you feel good.

Is the Gown a Match for Your Wedding Theme?

If your wedding has a theme, consider choosing a dress to match your theme. Popular themes include rustic country, vintage glamour, Gothic chic, fairy tale princess and casual beach. For traditional or cultural weddings, wear a gown reflecting customs or heritage.
