Wedding dress shopping
When looking for a dress, it is best to allow plenty of time so that you can be confident in your decision. Especially if you are looking for either a designer gown or a bespoke design from a seamstress. Giving yourself time will enable you to try on a selection of styles to find the perfect one.
Finding ‘the dress’ is one of life’s magical moments.You’ll want a style that makes you look and feel your best, so think about the most flattering style for your figure before you start shopping for your Wedding dress.
Try to visit bridal boutiques with an open mind, as it may be the surprisingly unexpected that you love the most. Of course take along your nearest and dearest, but remember, it is your opinion and how you feel that is key when trying on wedding dresses and making your final decision.
Make sure that you try one with your dress. Even if you are adamant that a veil or similar is not for you…you may just be surprised!
If you are considering a veil bear in mind the hair style you wish to have on your wedding day. These decisions often come hand in hand as you want them to complement one another.

Finding the right person to look after your wedding hair and makeup on the day is critical – s/he will be with you while you are getting ready and needs to be a calming influence rather than providing an independent element of drama!
Collect pictures as you come across ideas and make sure you have a dry run. A rehearsal, usually combining make-up and hairstyling, will give you comfort that on the day you can confidently sit back, relax and be pampered.
If you already have a veil and/or headpiece it is ideal to show these to your hairdresser so they can create a hair style to complement the look, or advise you on a veil and/or head piece to create your vision into reality.
When researching suppliers you may find that some people offer wedding hair and makeup packages, therefore, ticking two boxes in one!
