For future brides, wedding planning is all about finding that perfect wedding dress. And why not? This is the best chance for them to show their future husband how beautiful his future wife could be once she wears that perfect gown.
Although there are so many bridal stores and shops that offer wedding dress, many future brides are finding it hard to wear what is they feel best for them. When the search for the gown has not even started, this would cause a delay in the entire wedding planning process.
If you are one of those future brides who are having a hard time choosing ready-to-made wedding gowns or who’s having a hard time with their designers for not getting the style that they want, the best option for you would be to design your own wedding gown. Experts say that if you are the type of bride who would want to look totally unique, then you should learn how to design your own wedding gown. This task might seem daunting at first, but if you really want to do it your own way, you will overcome that “I couldn’t do it” mentality and start working.
Once you have decided to design your wedding gown, then the major consideration would be the time available. This is because the task itself would require so many time especially if you don’t have inborn knack for designing. If you are dating and would want to design your own wedding dress in the future, now is the best time to get started on it. If you think you have more than enough time to design your own wedding dress, then you must familiarize yourself with the basics.
To save time and money when designing your wedding dress, the first thing that you need to do is to conduct a research. This research should include the different body types for each wedding dress, various wedding dress shapes, materials that can be used, styles that are in trend, cuts that will fit you, colors, and basic sewing information. Once you are done with research, now is the time to proceed in the “design proper.”
Before you proceed, it is very important for you to determine your body type in order to know which dress shape would look good on you. If you have a tall frame, almost any style of wedding dress would look good on you. If you are petite, it is better to stick with clean style and cuts because too many intricacies in the design can be overwhelming for your frame. If you are pear shaped, it is safe to stick with A-line princess cut wedding dresses to avoid exposing your waist. If you do your research intently, you will discover that there are so many simple remedies when it comes to physical flaws.
When you are designing your gown to get started with your entire wedding planning, you should also familiarize yourself with different dress shapes and cuts for wedding gowns including straight line, empire cut, ball gown, mermaid, and others so you can create your own variation if needed.
