How to Select the Perfect Wedding Dress

One of the most important decisions you will make before you get married is to select your perfect wedding dress. This is something that you have dreamt of since you were a child. But DO NOT let the hype and the pressure of years and years of anticipation cloud your judgment. After all, the dress is just a dress, and should never be bigger than the occasion.

One of the things you should to consider when buying a dress is the comfort level of the wedding dress. Sure it's nice to look like a princess on your wedding day, but if the dress causes you extreme discomfort; or cuts off your circulation; then it's not really worth it. The dress might even cause you to faint. Imagine what a nightmare that would be!

The wedding dress selection process usually starts months before the wedding. It's advisable for you to look through the pages of wedding magazines, or to visit wedding shops. Just to give them an idea of the different types of styles of wedding dresses that are available.

Consider your body types. It is important to get a wedding dress that looks good on you! You might have to try plenty of wedding dresses before you find that one dress that is perfect for you.

If you have set aside an extensive budget for your wedding dress, then you can always go for a designer dress. The most famous name nowadays when it comes to bridal fashion is still Vera Wang http://www.verawang.com/, but as the popularity for the David Tutera brand continues to grow, his line of wedding dresses David Tutera by Faviana; www.davidtuterabyfaviana.com/

Vera Wang is known for her luxurious detailing, craftsmanship, and hand beading. Vera Wang clients for her wedding line include: Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Simpson, Uma Thurman and Mariah Carey, just to name a few.

But if you don't have that much money to spare then you can always choose other options. There are a number of places where you can get your wedding dress that won't cost you a fortune. In addition to the more traditional bridal shops such as David’s Bridal; where you may have recently visited, wedding dresses are also available in: thrift shops, discount stores, online, and even eBay.

If you are buying on eBay, make sure the measurements of the wedding dress are included in the description. Also, the condition of the dress must be looked into. Check for feedback regarding that person's account, just to make sure that you are dealing with a credible dealer.
But if a traditional wedding is the theme you have in mind, then you might want to go for a vintage dress, in keeping with this theme. When buying a vintage dress, beware of discoloration, or stains on the dress. These might not come off so easily. Investigate the fabric of the dress; stretch it out to check for weakening, or tearing of the cloth. Try to buy a vintage dress that is made before the 1900's. Fabrics have a tendency to deteriorate, and weaken over time. Extraordinarily old vintage dresses might look romantic, but they might not be ideal for use.


If you really have your heart set on a specific design, but you find that that dress is too old to use, or too expensive, then you can always go for a reproduction wedding dress.

Many stores specialize on reproduction dresses. They design wedding dresses based on specific themes, or eras. Some specialty wedding shops also focus on designing knock-off wedding dresses, inspired by designer wedding gowns. The huge difference being, that these wedding gowns are retailed for the fraction of the amount.

There are so many ways you as a future bride can go about in search for her dream wedding dress. Searching for a wedding dress should be EXCITING and FUN! So make sure you have plenty of time in your hands before the big day, so this process doesn't become stressful, and wearisome. Instead a prelude to the happiness of the special occasion which is to become your wedding.

THE ROYAL WEDDING, April 29th 2011

If you don’t know already, you must be living under a rock. The Royal Wedding will be taking place on Friday, April 29, 2011 at 11:00am.


This is the wedding of the year; this wedding will be watched by the world and absorbed by the media. Could you imagine the intense filling that this will create for Prince William and Kate Middleton alone; on top of being a special moment that naturally creates butterflies in the stomach with the level of excitement and joy that comes over one during the moments right up to the moment of saying “I DO”, after that it’s a level of joy that releases into the universe. Although they are always watched by the media and are quite often captured on film, this will be intensely heightened on this day. Imagine if she made one little stubble (trip), it will be replayed and replayed on every channel – how embarrassing.

Now, Lifetime TV will be featuring a movie in honor of the couple; “William and Kate, Let Love Rule” April 23 and 24 at 9 pm et/pt. The film chronicles the history of William and Kate — from the moment they met at Scotland’s prestigious University of St. Andrews, through the ups and downs of their nine-year courtship complicated by social and royal-family pressures, and intense global media attention surrounding their storybook nuptials. This is the perfect opportunity to get caught up on the couple prior to the real wedding day!

It’s also marketing GENIUS, prepare to watch some of the newest commercials (like the super bowl, but not as funny), as the anticipation of viewers should be high.

So go ahead, mark your calendars!
It will be a topic of discussion...
