wedding dresses are a cost and design compromise. Wedding dresses can be the most stressful, as well as most gratifying part of planning a wedding. In some situation, a bride-to-be may already have in mind what kind of dress they want. Believe it or not, some Women have been researching this since junior high school.
There is also the sense that when the groom sees his bride for the first time in her dress, the dress should compliment her features and build. Like anything else she gets for her wedding, a woman should feel good about her wedding dress purchase. It should be comfortable and flattering and help her feel special on her special day.
With the Internet, brides-to-be can view a number of different styles of wedding dresses before they try something on. They can even purchase their wedding dress online as well. This may seem very convenient, but being fitted properly at a store is still essential. Like any other clothing, different styles of wedding dresses fit differently, and most people find that, especially with their first few choices, a wedding dress look different on the woman than it does in a catalog page or on a rack.
Many brides-to-be are also turning to used wedding dresses as well. This is an affordable avenue for women, and many even sell their dresses back shortly after their wedding. Traditions have changed, and there is very little saving of the bride’s dress for her daughter to wear 25 years later going on today. Doing this requires specific storage techniques so that the dress does not yellow, and it seems to be much more of a hassle than it’s worth to most women today.
For many brides-to-be cost plays a factor in their wedding dress decision. This can be difficult for those who may have champagne taste on a beer budget. And what about all of the low cost wedding dresses not fitting right and the only one that does may be just out of your price range? Yes, these scenarios do come up. The thing to do here is to ask yourself if some other area of your wedding planning can be cut back on a little bit to help you buy the right dress that fits and looks right on you.
Again, while the Internet can save you a lot of gas and leg work, you still should visit a wedding dress shop and talk to a person who is willing to size you and fit you appropriately. Also, input from friends, just like with planning the entire wedding event, can both be helpful and a curse.
