19 Jul How to Choose the Right Dress for Your Destination Wedding in PR
They say that when you finally find the perfect wedding dress, “you just know,” but it’s just not that easy for some brides to find the bridal gown of their dreams. Lucky for you, we’ve compiled a list of six helpful tips for finding the right wedding dress based on a number of different factors. Now you can check that off your list, feel less stressed out, and spend time on more enjoyable aspects of planning your Rincon Puerto Rico wedding…like tasting cake!
Tips for Finding the Perfect Bridal Gown
Schedule your wedding dress appointment for the morning. Brides that wait until the afternoon for their wedding dress appointment will get a consultant that has already been dealing with clients’ bridal concerns all day. By scheduling an appoint for first thing in the morning, you are more likely to get an energetic consultant ready to give you her full attention, and the store will probably be far less crowded.
Silhouette is everything. From mermaid to ballgown, trumpet and A-line, there are scores of wedding dress silhouettes to choose from, and this should be your first step in pursuit of the perfect wedding dress. From there, you’ll have to focus on details you do or don’t want, like ruffles, pearls, etc., but you must first figure out the silhouette that flatters you most and best matches your own personal style.
Try on as many dresses as you need to…but not too many. Just like any garment, a wedding dress can look completely different on than it does on the hanger, so resist making snap judgments based on first appearances. Try on as many dresses as you need to to determine what style suits you best, without becoming completely overwhelmed by the choices. And take plenty of pictures so you can see how the dress photographs from every angle.
Wear a well-fitting bra when trying on wedding dresses. You’re going to spend a good amount of time in your underwear while trying on wedding dresses, so opt for a pretty one that looks great and fits well, rather than the go-to bra you wear on a daily basis. Keep in mind that the bra you wear can actually affect the way your dress fits, looks and feels, so you might consider visiting a specialist beforehand to get fitted for a new wedding-day bra!
Pay attention to how the dress looks, not the size. Wedding gowns typically run to to three sizes larger than your regular dress size, so don’t freak out when you see the tag. Instead, pay attention to how the dress looks on you and trust a professional to tailor the dress for a perfect fit.
Consider the location of your wedding. A beautiful long-sleeve vintage wedding dress with a six-foot train might look great in theory, but that type of dress could prove to be a little complicated if you’re planning a beach wedding in Puerto Rico. Not only will you probably have to walk through the sand at some point, but Puerto Rico also enjoys 85-degree weather pretty much year-round, so a strapless or sleeveless dress might be more appropriate in this case.
