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.
Forgetting they have to spend a whole day in the dress. This sounds obvious, but many people will try a dress on and decide to buy it without even trying to sit down in it. The wedding dress is for more than just the ceremony, so think about how comfortable it will be to wear while sitting down, eating and even dancing in. This is particularly important with corset style bodices that can be restricting, and fishtail dresses, which if too closely fitted can stop you being able to sit down at all! Buying a dress you don't love. This is YOUR dress. It should be the dress that you keep comparing all other dresses to (I still do this 4 years after my wedding, and so far, I still love my wedding dress more than any other!). Choosing a dress because it made your mother well up, or just because it has a coloured trim that will match the bridesmaid's dresses is really not advisable. You aren't planning to do this more than once, so make sure to buy the wedding dress of your dreams.
Shop the sales if you want cheap wedding dresses. There are many wedding boutiques that have special sales, and you may want to attend them to save money. Some stores have special sales on model dresses that they have used, and you can get a great dress for a discounted price. Another way that you can save and still have a great wedding dress is to wear the dress that someone in your family wore. Perhaps your mom has a great dress and you'd like to honor her by wearing it. With a few adjustments and expert tailoring, you can have a cheap dress that looks incredible, and it will look all your own as well.
The time of year for your wedding will be one of the deciding factors when choosing a wedding dress; a summer wedding will mean needing a lighter fabric (you do not want to be passing out because of the heat) and, likewise, colder times of the year might mean choosing a wedding dress in a heavier fabric to keep you warmer. Naturally, if you are getting married in Britain then planning for a change in weather conditions is never a bad idea; August in the UK does not always mean lovely sunshine and heat. Of the many bridal accessories to choose from, a wedding cloak is a great idea for any time of the year as even a lovely summers day can turn cold in the evening. If the location of your wedding means walking outside then a wedding cloak will help you stay warm and you'll still look gorgeous.
Hanging Wedding dresses. The materials used in most wedding dresses aren't renowned for their strength, and in order to avoid rips, split seams, and other damage it's important that care is taken when hanging the dress. Generally, wedding dresses cannot be put on a hanger like regular dresses, as the weight of the gown can cause the dress material to rip or tear near the hanger. Instead, small loops of fabric sewn into the interior of the dress should be used to hang the gown safely. These hanging loops are put in place by the dressmaker on the strongest seams in the gown, ensuring that they will be able to support the weight of the full gown without causing any damage.
Preserve Your Wedding Dress. From the rack of fashionable wedding dresses, how many do you think survives through the years after use? One would be lucky to escape crumpling and soiling if the bride knew where to send her dress for preservation. Yes, dear brides, there is apparel preservation available for those who want to keep their wedding gowns and wedding flowers to look as good new on the wedding day. But if you are not the sentimental sort, preserving your dress, is not in your books. You can alter it later for more practical uses but pray tell how many brides would dare mutilate their dream wedding dress? Another thing, if your wedding gown was lovingly stitched with pearls and feathers and imported from the best couture house in Paris, you cannot just let your dress go to rot. Before you go through the stack of dresses in the bridal shop, ask where you can have your wedding dress preserved. If the bridal shop does not offer this service, they can recommend a reliable apparel preservation establishment because bridal shops have set up extensive networking in the bridal business.
