Selecting a wedding dress is an essential task
1. Timing for Choosing a Wedding Dress
Choosing and purchasing your wedding dress is crucial well in advance of your wedding day. Professional bridal gown experts advise starting preparations at least 3-6 months ahead. This timeframe ensures you have enough time for fittings and potential alterations. Achieving the perfect style, size, and all the intricate details of your wedding dress may require multiple fittings and adjustments. Furthermore, during the peak wedding season, especially on weekends and evenings, appointments can be more challenging to secure. Therefore, it's wise to plan ahead and secure ample time to ensure you receive the best service and selection.
2. Wedding Dress Selection for a Fuller Figure
If you have a slightly fuller figure, there are some techniques to help you appear more slender when choosing a wedding dress. Firstly, consider A-line or ball gown styles as they have skirts with crinoline that can help conceal any extra weight around the shoulders and waist. Additionally, sweetheart neckline dresses are suitable for fuller figures as they accentuate the upper body, creating a more elongated appearance.
High-waisted ball gown styles are also a great choice because they can camouflage a tummy and any thigh fullness while elongating the leg line. Avoid choosing overly form-fitting styles, as they might emphasize fuller arms. Sweetheart necklines are more flattering for showcasing your neck area compared to high necklines, so you may want to avoid the latter.
3. Measurement and Fitting Considerations
When getting measured and fitted for your wedding dress, keep these crucial considerations in mind:
- During measurements, ensure they are not too tight, and don't intentionally suck in your body to avoid compromising comfort. If you plan to wear shapewear on your wedding day, make sure to wear it during measurements as well.
- Take into account the height of the shoes you plan to wear on your wedding day to ensure the dress length is appropriate. You can wear a pair of shoes you find suitable during sizing measurements.
- When trying on dresses, it's best to wear the same undergarments and shoes that you wore during measurements to ensure a proper fit. Pay close attention to the design around the chest and waist and check if the hemline length is suitable.
- If you've already purchased accessories like necklaces, bring them along for fittings to see the overall effect. You can also involve a stylist during fittings to get their advice on coordinating the wedding dress.
- During the fitting process, perform various movements such as walking, sitting, raising your arms, and bending over to ensure the dress is not only snug but also allows for easy mobility, avoiding any embarrassing situations.
Selecting and preparing a wedding dress is a significant task, but it can also be an enjoyable process. By following these recommendations, you'll be able to find the perfect wedding dress that radiates confidence and beauty on your special day. Wishing you a smooth and joyous wedding experience!
