To be a bride walking down the aisle and all dressed in white is the dream of every little girl. When the girl becomes a woman, the dress in her dreams slowly unravels in design. You see it more in your mind when engagement is underway. Most ladies prefer a lace wedding dress because it is simply elegant and delicate with a touch of whimsy and romance.
Venetian, embroidered, sheer Alencon, knit, brocade, and the classic Chantilly lace are all different. Yet, lace will always be unique and versatile. This premise is why it is the material of choice for more than half of the bridal population. But getting the perfect one is not easy.
Shop at least eight months before the big day
Choosing a wedding dress is one of the earliest decisions to make after your engagement. Why? The dressmaker will ensure that you look your best on your big day, which will take months to perfect. If you have some ideas to incorporate, your couturier will still have time to make the necessary changes. On your final fitting day, you can be sure that all the buttons and zippers are in place, and no untoward incidents will happen during the ceremony.
Be true to your size
You might have dreamed of the perfect lace wedding dress for your life’s biggest moment. But, in reality, not all gowns are created equal. A voluminous skirt or a mermaid-style dress may put you in a euphoric state. But if you have a petite or willowy frame, these may not accentuate your best assets. Go for what flatters your body.
Check out affordable wedding dress shops first
Some prospective brides decide to go to a classy dress shop first. But most of them find what they need from inexpensive shops. Who knows? You might find the dress of your dreams while working up the price ladder.
Spend time shopping
The bride’s dress is often the highlight of the nuptials. Hence, the search for the best one is always filled with pressure. It is recommended that you (and your wedding gown crew) set aside a whole day for worry-free dress shopping. It is also advisable to shop on a weekday because the stores will always be jam-packed during weekends.
Choose your shopping party
Have you been watching bridal gown shows on TV? If yes, you should have seen the arguments between wedding parties due to differences in dress opinions. Unfortunately, that happens in real life, too. Avoid an emotional meltdown by bringing with you two or three of your closest and most respected people for an easier consensus.
Be appropriately dressed when shopping for clothes
Dress comfortably while shopping for your bridal gown. You will fit as many lace dresses as possible, so go for a shopping attire that allows quick changes—a dress that is easy to take off and put back. Do not wear long sleeves or a fully buttoned one.
You may also want to consider wearing underwear that will not show when you fit dresses. Wear a white or nude-colored bra to focus more on the dress rather than your undies. If you like off-shoulder gowns, wear a strapless bra so that the accent is on your shoulders.
Lastly, if you want to wear flats while looking around, you can bring an extra pair of heels. Wear it when trying your wedding dress to see its full potential, especially if you want a taller look.
The groom is often low-key at weddings. But the bride – and her wedding dress – will always be the star of the show. Acquiring the right lace wedding dress will bring you many happy memories to last forever.
