Choosing Your Wedding Dress - Budget Versus Style

Oct 12, 2007
When you walk down the aisle, you become the focus of the wedding and you will draw the attention of all the guests. Certainly you would like to be the most perfect bride when your guests are looking at you. You will try to find the best make up and hair stylist. The wedding shoe will also be extremely important. For your wedding dress, you should also choose it with care so that your guests will not be disappointed.

When you are choosing the wedding gown, the first thing you need to consider is of course the budget. Unless you can borrow a dress from your friend or relative which totally fits you (which means that you do not need to make any alteration to the dress), you will certainly have to spend some money. In fact, the price range of a wedding dress can vary a lot. You can find gowns at about a few hundred US dollars. You can also find that some gowns may cost a few thousands. You budget should be set by considering how much you are willing to pay and how much you are able to pay.

It is very normal that you would like to be the most beautiful bride in the world and you would also like to buy a perfect wedding dress. However, it may be something you find unaffordable. You have to be realistic in such cases. It is sure that you will only be disappointed and unhappy if you can only "dream" of the perfect gown. As a famous Chinese saying, you will always feel happy if you can admire and appreciate what you have on your hand. It is also true for your wedding dress. It is better not to think of something financially unattainable.

After you have settled the number one issue, which is the budget, you can start defining the style of the dress you like. There are tons of different styles you can choose from. For the material, you have silk, lace and so one. A long dress is also different from a short one. You may even consider a gorgeous vintage bridal gown if you like.

You will need to research on the different styles before you make your final decision. You can do your research on the internet and bridal magazines. You should keep the images of bridal dresses in a folder for your future reference. It will be even better if you can make all these images digital so that it can be easily sent to your friends and relatives. In this way you can also ask for their opinions without any difficulties.

When you are choosing your wedding dress style, what you basically need to consider is your body shape. A gown can look good on a fitting model but it may not look as good when you put it on. You should try to understand the strength and weakness of your body and you will not find it hard to find the most suitable style for you.

Besides, the type of wedding will also affect the style you choose. You will not choose a formal gown if you are going to have a beach theme wedding. You may even choose a totally informal gown in this case of outdoor wedding. On the contrary, you may want to choose something more formal if you are going to have a church wedding.
