HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR DREAM WEDDING DRESS:

Whether you’ve been dreaming of your wedding dress since you were little and know the exact specifications you want for it down to the last sequin, or you’ve never thought about it until your future spouse’s mother nagged, “You still haven’t gotten your gown,” we’ve got you covered on how to choose a wedding dress.

Finding your dream wedding dress can be stressful. After all, you’ve likely never tried one on before, and it’s the most expensive garment many women will ever own, so it can feel like the pressure is definitely on while wedding dress shopping. It may also feel like there’s a whole new language to decode—tulle, A-line, fit-and-flare, lace, organza, sheath, fit-and-flare, etc. Not to mention, more brides are doing multiple dresses—a more formal one for the ceremony and a party-centric one for the reception—which can make shopping even more stressful.

The wedding dress is not a separate piece of garment that just you need to love, it is a reflection of many things that comes together about your wedding that need to take into consideration, like: the kind of wedding you are going to have (formal, intimate, black-tie, beach wedding, etc.), the number of people you are going to invite, the place, the religion or the ceremony type, the culture (so, important to consider) and not jus your family and friends culture but your in-laws culture and traditions, etc.

We have seen in 15 years on Miracle Mile, how these aspects can determinate or modify your original idea. Some of them can influence so much your decision and consideration when finding your dream dress.  We have seen girls worry about not been too sexy to be in the church ceremony, or your in-laws religion or traditions that won’t like the low back and sexy plunging neckline. But at the end, you need to be confident and be happy in your big day.

It is good idea, definitely, to take some time and search for some pictures that catch your attention in the social medias and made a folder in your phone.

Ok, remember that most of those pictures are from models that probably have a different size, height and body shape than you and when you try on something similar you feel disappointed because that shape doesn’t look the same on you. 

This is an exercise and the first idea that will help the bridal consultant to start finding your dream dress.  But, you will see, as soon as you start train on dresses what shape makes you feel more confident and beautiful.  After you define the shape (A-line or fitted) you will start seeing other details that are also very important: the fabric, the neckline, the train, the shoulders, etc.

Important advise: Always be open to try something that the bridal consultant recommend you. They have a lot of experience and have help many brides to find their dress that something that for you was probably that was discarded by you at the beginning or you would never have thought of trying it on, I could surprise you to tears and tear you an excited “Yes” this is my dress!
