Consider the Location of your Wedding: This is crucial since the venue will determine the kind of dress code you have to follow. For instance, if you are going for a formal, somber church wedding you better stave off short slip wedding attires which look more like a cocktail party dress. Instead go for a long flowing gown and a beautiful train that will up your sophistication as a bride instantly. On the other hand if it is a beach wedding, well, you can choose to go for a more informal wear with short dresses and pretty lilacs or blues for your wedding outfit colors.

Contemplate on your Preferences: Consider the element of comfort although you may well go the extra mile on your wedding day in order to look beautiful. However, certain fabrics and colors do not go well with particular seasons and time of the day. If you are going for a summer beach wedding a bulky, gaudy gown may not be the perfect choice.

Still others love patterns sequins in complimentary colors to the dress. You know what suits you the best so go for it, of course not forgetting to try it out and taking your dear ones’ opinions on your looks.

Shape of the Gown: Gowns come in myriad shape and the best way to understand which one would suit you the best is to try all of them individually. Go for a shape that enhances your silhouette to the core and which gives you enough comfort to move and bend easily. For the petite frames a mermaid skirt gown with a long train is the best bet. If you have an hour-glass figure go for a V-Line top and compliment it with an A-line skirt. Try other shape as well such as princess, empire waist and sheath to pick out one which does not tend to split or tear when you bend, walk or turn.
