SAY YES TO THE DRESS

Things to con­sider when choos­ing the best dress of your life

Mackay and Whitsundays Wedding Guide - - Contents -

YOULL see your wed­ding dress for the rest of your life. You might not keep it but it will be in your photos, videos and mem­o­ries.

It is the main sym­bol of your big day and you want to make sure you de­cide on the dress early so you have enough time to make any ad­just­ments.

When try­ing on your wed­ding dress it is im­por­tant to con­sider your body type. Pick a dress that fits you well but that you feel com­fort­able in. You ll be wear­ing the dress for up to 12 hours, you want to be com­fort­able on one of the biggest days of your life.

Also keep in mind your bud­get. You don’t want to spend all your money on the dress and not be able to af­ford to feed your guests.

If you are hav­ing a tra­di­tional wed­ding, go for a clas­sic white dress. Oth­er­wise let the dress re­flect your per­son­al­ity.

Light pink and light blue dresses are cur­rently on trend for peo­ple who de­cide to ditch the white dress (which gen­er­ally sym­bol­ises pu­rity).

Deep neck plunge dresses, bustier tops and laid-back bo­hemian lace dresses are also in fash­ion.

When shop­ping for a dress, like with make-up, al­ways con­sider your skin tones and hair colour. A stark white colour is quite bright and best for darker skin tones, while di­a­mond white is slightly darker and suits lighter skin tones.

Flo­ral head­pieces are very much in fash­ion at the mo­ment and that’s be­cause they look great.

Shorter veils and trains are also in fash­ion, mak­ing a come­back in re­cent years.

Pearls and crys­tals re­main the top jewellery choice for brides, as ear­rings, neck­laces or both.
