Before you head out the door to your local bridal shops, consider a few things:
What time of day is your ceremony?
Where will your ceremony be held? Examples; church, garden, beach, indoor venue, outdoor venue?
Has a storyboard, colorstory or design theme been created for your day?
A good bridal consultant in a reputable bridal shop can help you choose the dress that fits your body, and flatters your figure, but only you and your Personal Designer/Professional Bridal Consultant can choose a dress that best suites the overall story of YOUR DAY. So before you rush out to purchase the dress you saw in the latest Bridal Magazine, secure your design, venue and date first. Then your perfect dress will reveal itself to you as if it has just been waiting for you all of your life. Then, you and your Mom, (or your closest friend) can cry together at the gorgeous, and fabulously perfect day that you are creating.
