Brides are always concerned about the details of their weddings right up until the big day. The biggest worries surround the most important decisions such as the choice of wedding dress. With so many choices to pick from it can be daunting. Often, the dress is one of the first things you’ll purchase and then you may find you have some regrets later on. Here are some tips to avoid the most common wedding dress misgivings.

Wrong Style – The dress is defined by its style. Too many times a bride chooses one style only to regret the choice later on. The best way to avoid problems is to stay true to your own personal fashion preferences. Now isn’t the time to get out of your comfort zone when it comes to style. For example, you may like the look of a strapless dress but actually won’t feel comfortable wearing it.

Improper Length – There are various choices when it comes to wedding gown length. The time and location of your wedding usually dictate the length that is acceptable. A long train is only appropriate for a very formal church wedding while a short dress may be best for a beach wedding. Determine the type of wedding you’re going to have before you choose your dress.

Colour Mistake – The two most popular colour choices are white and ivory. Of these, white is the most common option. Close your eyes and picture your wedding photo. If you’re wearing white, choose a white gown.

Too Trendy – As with every type of attire, wedding gowns are subject to fashion trends. If you want to be sure to avoid any dress regrets, don’t choose any new trends for your dress. Instead, stick to a more traditional style and you’ll be sure to like your gown.

Sized Improperly – Many brides plan to lose weight before their weddings. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen. Rather than regretting a poor choice of size, shop for a dress that fits you as you currently are. Remember you can always have the gown altered down but making it larger isn’t always possible.
