Your wedding is ultimately one of the most important days of your life, but it should also be the most enjoyable. Once you’ve decided on your venue, everything else should fall into place., including your outfit.
The wedding dress is the one fashion item all young girls dream of, and although the style of dress may change as you grow older and your tastes change, it remains an important decision and a dream buy.
You of course want to buy a dress that suits your figure, and makes you feel as beautiful as you look on your big day but you must consider where you are getting married before getting too carried away.
Beach weddings would mean that heavy fabric and tight corsets are a no go, instead you should consider light fabrics that flow. Tight fitting may be flattering to your figure but after hours under the sun could cause unflattering scenarios (no one wants sweat patches in their wedding photos).
Church weddings: Ok, so I know this is a very broad term, but some churches are very old, and very, very cold, especially in the colder months. A strapless, light fabric dress may cause unwanted discomfort.
These are only a couple of examples, but ensure you consider your own comfort when purchasing that dream dress.
There are so many things to consider when buying wedding shoes such as the height the style and the colour that brides often forget about the environment they will be wearing their shoes in.
If your wedding is outside, make sure you consider the ground you will be walking on, cobbles and grass don’t go well with stilettos. Don’t worry too much if you want to keep the height of heels, as wedged wedding shoes can give height and stability!
Flowers aren’t usually considered part of the wedding outfit, but you will be holding them in photographs and down the aisle. You may also want your groom to have a flower in their lapel.
The flowers are usually picked to match the colour scheme, but they can be integrated with the venue too, especially if you’ve gone for something a little more unusual. Try matching the colours of the venue itself, look at the carpet and wall colours.
What time of year is it? Sunflowers in Summer would make beautiful and unique photographs. Similarly, Red flowers such as Red roses contrast beautifully with white (Not to mention they are a national symbol of romance and love).
Your wedding day should be a happy and memorable experience. Relax and think logically, but don’t forget to enjoy every moment from picking the venue to trying on the dresses, to saying ‘I do’.
