Mackay and Whitsundays Wedding Guide


Things to consider when choosing the best dress of your life


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.
