WLBM’s tips on how to find the right wedding dress for your big day!

DSC_8657DSC_8661DSC_8665SONY DSCSONY DSC

When choosing a dress, which is more important – style or silhouette?

I personally think both! Before you start this exciting journey, you need to know what silhouette works for you and what is the style that you want. This is why finding the perfect wedding gown is such an exciting journey. It is important for the bride to pay attention to these two elements and get the right balance. The right dress should not only represent what she is in personality, but also highlight the best of who she is as a person.

If I could offer one piece of advice to a bride for purchasing her gown or before designing her gown, I would say have some options and be open to new ideas and styles.

Don’t go for that one style or trend or look. Creating a ridged, singular gown image before the search process can create some unescessary frustration and disappointment before the big day. I think you need to be open to new ideas and options. If you are willing to try new looks and silhouettes, you are giving yourself time and space to explore and search for your dream dress.

Trends are not to follow but to guide you on finding the right look, style and dress. On trend pieces do not work for everyone. So stay true to yourself and try to find that balance between the style and silhouette. When the balance is right you will feel it – it will show on your face.

Get creative with jewellery, veils, heels and other accessories. Remember to be true to your own style and wear what you are comfortable in. A wedding dress is a bout self expression so wear whatever floats your boat!
