Wedding Dresses

Planning your St George & The Shire Wedding is one of the most beautiful things in life. There are many things you need to organise, it can feel overwhelming, especially if you don’t know where to start. One of the decisions an St George & The Shire Bride has to make is choosing her wedding gown and bridal formal wear.


There are many factors involved in the decision, including personality of the bride, wedding theme, wedding budget... If you have a secret lifetime dream of wearing the most beautiful wedding gown on your St George & The Shire wedding day, you are certainly not alone. For most women, the wedding dress is the most important outfit they would ever wear.


Choosing the right wedding dress style and finding the perfect bridal gown can be a very, very significant mission for many brides-to-be. A few things you need to keep in mind before starting to search for your St George & The Shire wedding gown and dress. What time of year will St George & The Shire wedding take place? Where will the reception be? This will keep you from buying a dress that won't feel right on the day. Rely on your specialist St George & The Shire wedding dress supplier for the best advice, never wear a gown that you are the only one that thinks that it is the perfect design, fit and splendour.


It's important to establish your budget before setting foot in your St George & The Shire wedding dress boutique, this way you don't get your heart set on something you cannot afford. It's important you find a dress you love, but also doesn't use up your entire budget. What is the shape of your figure, it is important to be aware of our own body shape and honestly acknowledge any physical flaws? Try to visualize the shape of your body in the various wedding dress styles. This way, you can easily identify the best silhouette that will flatter your body and cover up your flaws.


Many first-time brides who have no knowledge of the bridal fashion industry, the wide variety of styles and strange terminology used to describe them can make the task of choosing the best wedding dress a very challenging one. Don't wait too long to begin looking for your wedding gown at one of the St George & The Shire region’s leading gown boutiques. It takes four to six months to have a dress made and fitted, sometimes even longer for one with intricate handwork. If you start shopping eight to twelve months in advance, you won't feel rushed -- or encounter rush charges.


The right dress will satisfy both your head and your heart -- as well as your budget. Consider practical matters: You may wear this dress only once, but it will be for a long, important day, and you'll feel more beautiful if you're comfortable. So lift your arms, as you will when you're dancing, and try sitting down and standing up, as you will probably do many times during the reception. Is the dress unbearably heavy or cumbersome? Does a corset-like bodice feel too confining; is a charmeuse slip dress too revealing? Does the fabric seem inclined to wrinkle at your waistline or gape at the neck? Remember that some of these problems will disappear when the dress in the right size is fitted to you. If there's a specific feature you don't like, talk to your saleswoman. The manufacturer or the boutique's seamstress can work wonders: Puffy sleeves can be deflated; plunging necklines can be raised.


Most bridal boutiques in Sutherland, Cronulla, Hurstville, Miranda, Gymea, Caringbah and Port Hacking require appointments, which will ensure that you'll get the personal attention that is part of what makes buying a wedding dress so special. Treat the appointment as the important event it is. Don't try to squeeze it in on a lunch hour; don't go straight from the gym. Bring someone who will enjoy sharing this experience with you, such as your mother or a bridesmaid, but don't show up with an entourage; too many opinions only detract from the one that counts -- yours.


At your St George & The Shire wedding dress boutique, you will be ushered into a large dressing room, where the first step is usually discussing your wedding plans with your saleswoman. Bring pictures from books and magazines of dresses and details you admire.


Your saleswoman will probably bring dresses to you one at a time. They will be sample sizes (sizes eight or ten). Don't worry if you're larger or smaller: After the saleswoman helps you into the dress, she'll either clip it or hold it closed in back to approximate a fit, giving you an idea of how it will look in your size. And keep an open mind; many women are surprised to discover what really suits them best.
