How To Choose A Wedding Gown

Make a list of bridal shops that you want to visit.  Find shops that carry dresses within your budget, you don’t want to spend your mortgage on a dress. Next, make an appointment to visit each store. Although the assistance are friendly and knowledgeable they can  become annoying and pushy.  Purchasing a wedding gown can be overwhelming.  It’s ok to receive recommendations that suit your personal style. At the end of the day, its your wedding and you have a budget you desire to stay within .

Choose a gown as soon as possible.  This is a very important step because most wedding gowns have to be altered for a customizable fit. Often times it may take longer depending upon the season of your wedding day. the earlier you make this decision the better, to a lot for any mishaps on sizing or you may change your mind about some details regarding the gown during the second fitting.

Choose the location and time of the wedding.  Some people say you should do this first, but I think it should be done right after the gown has been chosen, to make things more surreal. Not only this reason, but the style of the gown can sometimes determine the venue location. If your gown is very elegant, a beautiful elegant venue will take precedence over a less appealing venue.  You’re going all out on this wedding and everything including the venue will coincide.  The best venue to choose is one stop shop sort to speak. They’ll provide you with an officiant, baker, wedding planner, decorator, caterer and even plan your stay at a hotel if needed. As a bride your only duty is to show up  looking stunning!

What Do Wedding Guest Care About Most?

The ceremony:   The greatest thing the guest care about. Who aren’t eager to watch the lovely couple proclaim their love?  Don’t make the ceremony too long, because guest will start to get restless. I hate to say it, but 30 minutes is roughly about all most guest can take. I know you’ve planned this for years and you picked out the perfect dress, but we are ready to move on to the next phase. That’s why a great photographer is imperative to freeze your special day.  felix-russell-saw-130503.jpgWhat about the food: Make sure your food choices are crowd pleasers, everyone is hungry and you don’t want anyone to leave early to eat else where. Besides you spent so much time with the event planner to make sure every detail of your day goes well. Be sure to offer options for those with common allergies and vegetarians. todd-cravens-250743.jpgThe drinks: Like cake and ice cream, wedding and booze goes together. Champagne, wine,  beer and 2- 3 specialty cocktails will keep guest smiling all night long. rhianon-lassila-48758.jpgThe music: Last but certainly not least. Make sure your music list is on point. Play contemporary tunes everyone is sure to know and love. Leave the oldies , but goodies in the attack. It’s not that kind of party . Remember as you have fun, keep it classy. Don’t drink and drive. mitchell-orr-179532.jpg
