Your Wedding Dress Is A Crucial Piece of The Puzzle

Your Wedding Dress Is A Crucial Piece of The Puzzle

The preparation that goes into your wedding day can be intense. You’ll quickly discover the hidden strengths and weaknesses that you never knew you had. Hopefully, you’ll become a better planner and even find out what you love to do as well as what you absolutely hate doing. Consider it a journey of self-discovery.

Before you settle for any wedding dress, keep in mind that it forms part of the bigger picture. If you want to make your wedding beautiful, all the different parts need to fit together. Then your wedding dress will be the cherry on the cake that no one will miss!

One of the first things to consider is the kind of person you are. This is important because you want a wedding that makes you happy.

Here’s the good news: It’s totally possible to ditch these stressors and plan a wedding that suits your and your partner’s personalities.

The bad news? This probably won’t happen by default. The moment you start planning a wedding, people unleash a host of expectations on you.

Fortunately, by gaining an awareness of your personality type and your partner’s, you can figure out what matters to you – not your mother-in-law, your caterer, or your next-door neighbor… or even the random stranger who just eavesdropped on your conversation about tablecloths.

After all, it is your wedding and most likely, you’ll only get to do it once. Why should everyone else be happy except you?

The next thing you need to think about is: what’s your style?

1. Romantic
Soft hues, delicate lighting, and plenty of florals typically make up a romantic wedding. For this theme, envision pastels, hanging lights (even chandeliers), calligraphy, and a flower wall.

2. Alternative
More of an offbeat couple who’s never been one to take the normal route? We get you. Buck tradition with an alternative wedding theme, and roll with it however you see fit. If cool, moody color palettes and creative stand-ins match your style better than bright floral and been-there-done-that wedding décor, then an alternative theme has your name written all over it. Push the boundaries as much as you want… Read more at Brides…

The overall theme of your wedding will set the tone for the entire event. The decor, the finishings, and the colors will all find their place.


Once your theme and venue are decided, you can then go on to select a wedding dress that corresponds to it.

#1: Remember that it’s all in the details
