We have shared a handful of tips when it comes to choosing your wedding gowns that complements your body type. This is by far the primary concern and consideration you should take into account while you are shopping for your wedding gowns.
However, this is not the only tip you need to know.
In order to choose the perfect wedding gown, we are going to reveal 4 other secret tips you should know besides considering your body types!
Secret Tips When Choosing Wedding Gowns #1: Your Skin Tone
Besides your body types, another important factor to consider when choosing your wedding gowns is the your skin tone. This is because your skin tone can affect the overall outlook and effect of the wedding gown on you.
Skin tones are not the same as colour of your skin. All of us have different skin tones, regardless of what skin colour we have. For Asian brides, who usually have a warm undertone, a nude peach wedding gown would suit them well. It helps to create a glowy radiant effect as it complements the skin tone.
On the other hand, if you have a cooler skin undertone, you may want to think twice before choosing that nude peach wedding gown. This is because of the contrasting effect to your cooler skin undertone, making you appear paler.
Secret Tips When Choosing Wedding Gowns #2: Check If There Are Additional Costs
Some bridal boutiques pitch their wedding gown collections differently. For more gorgeous looking ones, they charge a premium wedding gown rental price.
Before you jump the gun to choose whatever bridal gown that sweeps you off your feet, it is prudent and wise to first inquire if there are extra charges for the wedding gowns you have selected. Otherwise, you may encounter a situation whereby you adore that particular wedding gown but yet it’s additional charges exceed your budget. Yikes!
The feeling, we understand, is totally argh! It isn’t a great feeling to have to pay an extra fee just to look good on your wedding day. So be certain before choosing your wedding gowns!
Secret Tips When Choosing Wedding Gowns #3: Practicality
If you are intending to dance on your wedding day, surely your chosen wedding gown has to accommodate for your movements.
Dancing in a long wedding gown train is a big NO-NO because firstly, it restricts your movements. You want to dance as carefree and natural as possible, and having a long wedding gown train just does not fit the bill.
Secondly, a wedding ball gown and a long wedding gown train is definitely going to add onto the weight you have to carry and sashay around. Again, this creates some movement difficulties during dancing.
However, that is not to say that choosing a wedding gown that sticks onto your body is the best choice. A mermaid wedding gown may also be unsuitable to be used for dancing. Limited leg and breathing space may cause some awkward dancing movements. Certainly not something you would want on your wedding day!
An A-line wedding gown is the perfect fit as it allows freedom to move yet still somewhat flaunts your figure. But it is less body-hugging than a mermaid wedding gown.
Most importantly, if you are not dancing on your wedding day, the very least you should consider when it comes to practicality of your choice of wedding gowns is to be comfortable wearing it. Sitting, breathing and going to the toilet should be fuss-free with your wedding gowns.
Secret Tips When Choosing Wedding Gowns #4: Personality
Saving the most important as last is definitely this piece of advice – reflect your personality on your wedding gown!
Your wedding gown should be an extension of your day-to-day style. Wearing your personality on your wedding gown shows the true and accurate side of you. You want your groom and the wedding guests to recognise you when you walk down the wedding aisle.
We say, not to choose your wedding gowns based on trends. Don’t get too caught up in the fad of the moment, rather choose something timeless and classic. Also, focusing on your own personal style and finding out what flatters you most is also important.
Lastly, take your time (but not too long!) when choosing your wedding gowns. Don’t feel pressured to make a quick decision. Sleep on it if you have to and then wake up fresh the next morning to make a better choice!
Choosing your right wedding gown does not only revolve around your body types. Skin tone, budget, practicality and personality are equally important as well! These tips are what would help you to shine on your wedding day!
