Choosing your Wedding Dress

Posted by shaadivows on April 8, 2009

Amongst the choices you make for your wedding, deciding what to wear is one of the biggest decision. The perfect dress can make your day but something not fit for you can completely spoil your dream wedding. So deciding your wedding dress needs to be done with utmost care.bride1

Set a Budget for your clothes: Once your marriage budget is decided always assign a budget for the attire. Be realistic and keep your options open.

Decide on the Look: This would be related to your wedding theme, the region you belong to and whether you want a traditional or modern wedding. The colour should be coordinated with the weather in which your marriage has been fixed.

Order at least 5 – 4 Months before the D Day: When your Wedding day is decided, place an order for your wedding dress, you shouldn’t indulge in last minute rush as far as your clothes are concerned. Designers and wedding tailors are generally very busy especially during wedding season.

Talk and take an opinion: Talk to friends, family and then decide on the type and colour etc. Still keep your mind open and explore the market.

Don’t be too rigid about what you want: Broaden your search. Research through websites, marriage magazines, photographs.

You should feel nice: It’s your big day so you should feel nice about what you are wearing.

Shop Shop & Shop: You have to accept the fact that you need to spend alot of time shopping so start enjoying the experience.

For the bride, Indian wedding dress ranges from Salwar Suits to Saree to Lehnga, Sharara and Gharara to a Wedding Gown. The colours depend on the region you belong to in a traditional Indian wedding. Generally we have deep, bright colours like red, magenta, maroon etc. Some regions/religions prefer pastel shades and whites like in Kerala and in Parsi weddings. The options for the groom a restricted to a Sherwani and Suit.
