The wedding dress and wedding hairstyle you choose are the most significant decisions you will ever make, that's of course, after you have chosen the right groom!
When it comes to your wedding gown, there's such a vast range of styles, shapes and colour. Naturally, the marriage hairstyle has to come second towards the dress, even though the 2 must interact synonymously.
The best advice to take when choosing the wedding dress is to go to a shop with an open mind. It is all very well to have an idea of what you would like, but it's a known proven fact that 75% of brides come home with an unexpected selection of dress. It will be such a fun day out, and probably the only real chance in your life you will get to 'play' with so many different types of wedding dress.
Choosing your wedding dress will be the priciest shopping trip in your life! Most wedding dress specialists are only too helpful and will also be quite happy that you should try on the majority of the shop, though you may have to pre-book a scheduled appointment at certain areas. If you are inside a minority of places where the staff resemble those found on Julia Robert's trip to Rodeo Drive in Pretty Woman then simply just go elsewhere. No-one should hurry you right into a decision about a wedding gown and no-one should make you feel like a nuisance.
Trying on wedding dresses of each and every style is important; you really have no idea what will suit you before you try it on. Experiment with bodice and skirt, all-in-one empire line, bias cut, strapless, spaghetti straps, from the shoulder, short sleeves, long sleeves, organza, silk, tulle, with a petticoat and without a petticoat. It would be also a good idea to take a few hair clips along with you so that you can experiment with different wedding hairstyles as you are experimenting with different wedding gowns.
Before you go in your big shopping expedition, it would be a good idea to look through a range of bridal magazines. Take a look at different colours, styles, shapes, fabrics and designers allowing you to have a few ideas about what you like when you're trying on. It might also be smart to look at wedding hairstyles. Remember though, that bridal models usually look great in everything they wear and all hairstyles suit them.
You would be better to look at a model concentrating on the same colourings with a similar face shape to yourself. It's also wise to look at certain combinations of wedding gowns and wedding hairstyles - most likely particular dress styles lend themselves to particular hairstyles. For example, strapless gowns in many cases are complemented by up-do's, whereas tall, slim brides wearing plain silk dresses look better with short, cropped hairstyles or loads of long unkempt tousled curls!
Once in a wedding gown shop, give your assistant an idea of what sort of dress you are interested in. Try your dream dress on and find out how it enables you to feel. But, don' be overwhelmed if an assistant suggests something completely different. Remember, they've kitted out hundreds of brides and probably have a good idea of what will suit you simply by taking a look at you and speaking with you. Continue, be daring! It is true what they say - "You will just know whenever you try on the right one!"
They might also have good quality ideas about wedding hairstyles too, so don't be afraid to ask them.
Lastly, before choosing your dream wedding gown and a breathtaking wedding hairstyle to go with it, make sure to choose something that suits the way you are now. Many brides plan to be 2 sizes smaller, convey more defined arms, a longer neck and have longer hair by the big day, but you should always choose a wedding dress to suit how you are today. Look upon any weight loss or toning up as an added bonus - or the icing on the cake!
