How to choose the best Wedding Dress
Your wedding dress is the most important outfit of your life. It is celebrating one of the largest occasions that a human being can celebrate. Your wedding dress is the gown you wear as you announce to the world that you solemnly swear to love your soul mate forever.
It’s no secret that choosing a wedding dress can be a stressful time. Here at Dress Making Melbourne, we don’t believe it should be. We think that choosing a wedding dress design should be joyous, fun and momentous.
Women are prepared for this moment their whole life, picking beautiful formal dresses for proms, graduation dresses and leavers events. Beautiful dresses for racing events, engagement party dresses, cocktail party dresses and simple evening dresses are all something that women have always loved to pick out and feel beautiful in. Your wedding dress should be no different – except that it should be better.
Since we have over 10 years of experience in dressmaking and patternmaking here at Shayamaleen Fashion for Lifestyles, we thought we’d be the best Melbourne dress makers to help give you some tips for picking out the best wedding dress. We specialise in made-to-measure orders for ladies and children including evening dresses and party wear, but most of all, we put our lifeblood into wedding gowns.
Here is what we think you should consider when choosing the best dress maker and picking the best wedding dress design.
The style of your wedding dress is an important factor of choosing your dream bridal gown. There are so many dress designs on the market, this can sometimes feel overwhelming. Simply break your ideal wedding gown style into different sections, and then you’ll have a small checklist of must-haves for designing your own wedding dress. Here are the five items we like to people to know before designing a wedding dress – it makes the whole process a lot easier!
What is the best neckline for a wedding dress or bridal gown? What type of neckline do you usually go for with a gown? Maybe you like sweetheart neckline wedding dresses, or V-neck wedding dresses. Strapless wedding dresses are also a big hit right now.
Your neckline will also depend on the type of sleeves you can have. High-neck wedding dresses with long lace sleeves are a stunning take on the classic wedding dress designs. Of course, if you opt for strapless you will have to go sleeveless, or incorporate a half sleeve wing design.
The options may seem endless, but think of your favourite evening gowns and how they look on you. You’ll be able to find your ideal wedding dress neckline for your body type in no time.
Once you’ve decided on a wedding dress neckline, choosing a fit is the next step. Do you want a mermaid wedding dress? Maybe a bodycon wedding dress? If you’re all about the classics, a fit and flare wedding gown might be the option for you. Getting some great wedding dress style ideas will help you make your decision.
This one might seem obvious, every bride wants a white dress, right? Well no, not all of them. Maybe a gold wedding dress or a black wedding dress is more up your alley. There’s nothing wrong with stepping away from the trend!
Choose a wedding dress colour that feels right to you. Even if you do want to wear a glamorous white wedding dress, it might be an off-white bridal gown or a crisp snow cocktail dress that takes your fancy.
Are you a lover of the classic lace wedding dress? Do you love organza wedding dresses, or more of a linen feel? Silk bridal gowns are also increasing in popularity.
Head into the store and ask to feel some samples of material and see what best suits you. Once you’ve made your decision, why not bring your checklist to us and have us design your dream wedding gown!
Hope to see you soon.
