Another option is to browse small boutiques. Some of the most lovely wedding dresses I have seen were not wedding dresses at all, just great dresses, usually white but not always. It is amazing what you can find when you venture away from the wedding dress department or shop. Some of our brides wait until they come to Hawaii and find real treasures that fit perfectly in one of the local shops. They are also perfect for a Hawaiian wedding, which brings me to my last criteria.
As a result of watching the fantasy weddings on TV, or reading about them in books and magazines, or hearing about them from other people, many brides-to-be build an image in their minds of the type of dress they want to be wearing on their Wedding Day. Many people take a look and study stance as they go through the process of formulating, planning and dreaming up their ideal Wedding Gown. If is your time now and you are ready to start searching the shelves in order to purchase the perfect Wedding Dress, that you would hope will make your Wedding Day dreams come true, then you are in the right place. Here I have listed a few suggestions that will assist you and allow you to search and choose with less stress.

The Dress Comes First – Though it could go both ways, the style and theme of your Wedding Dress should follow the theme you desire for your Wedding Day, or vice versa. Some couples select the Wedding Day theme earlier than the selection of the Wedding Dress, as a result of this; they make the Wedding Gown match the theme they've chosen. However for some people, the choice of the Dress comes first, and the theme of the Wedding Day follows the Wedding Dresses theme. So if there is a Wedding Dress that catches the bride's imagination and is heavily beaded and formal, then the theme for the Wedding Day is usually formal. If the bride picks a less formal Wedding Gown, then it can be said that the Wedding Day may be less formal.
Poorly made dresses often fall down, are too tight in some places and too baggy in others, with crooked seams and zippers that show. The bride is continually pulling and wrestling with her dress throughout the wedding and reception. Much too often, the bride's underwear shows. It's alright to buy an inexpensive dress, but, make sure it looks good in natural light – natural fibers such as silk or cotton are preferred. Make sure you have the right underwear to go with the dress, that can't be seen. Walk around in the dress, sit down and move and check bra straps and panty lines. If they appear at home or in the shop, you can be sure that they will at the wedding. If necessary, you can have your dress altered by a good seamstress. A proper fit cannot be over estimated.
But what do you do when you just can't seem to find 'the one' for you? If you are tall and slim, you could wear just about anything, and still look wonderful. Sadly it is not so easy when you are either short, hourglass shaped, or even pear shaped, or over a size 16 (uk). Some Brides choose to have bespoke wedding dresses, but a custom made wedding gown may come at a premium price. Some brides are in the fortunate position of knowing someone who can make the dress for them and others seek to have the dress made in the Far East. Having the dress made in China or some other country has its pit falls and you should consider ensuring the dress arrives, a good two or three month, before your wedding. Although, in the past there have been negative stories of purchase from e-bay, my personal recommendation is e-bay is the safest way to buy such an item from the Far East. This is because if there is a dispute or poor workmanship when paying with PayPal on eBay the buyer has financial protection.
