BRIDES TRY ON UP TO 20 DRESSES!
It’s important to think long and hard about decisions relating to your wedding, whether it be your wedding photographer (such as Matthew Sims), your theme, the colours, the food and, most critically, the dress.
And it seems that women are certainly of this view, with new research showing that they try on up to 20 wedding dresses before finding that one very special one that they can’t wait to walk down the aisle in, and just 9% of those asked in the Promotional Codes study saying they only had to try on five dresses before they picked out a favourite.
While 20 dresses might seem like a lot to try on, it is important to make sure you find a gown that is particularly well suited to your body type. If you’re something of a pear shape, look for a skirt with a gradual flare from the waist to the floor, which will draw attention away from the thighs. For women with a larger bust, it might be a better idea to go for a scooped neckline as this won’t show too much cleavage and will lighten up your face. Also avoid ruched fabric or anything with a sheen to it as this could draw attention to your chest.
For tall brides, a silhouette dress is a great option, as it will help emphasise your shape. Try to avoid anything too fussy and over-embellished and keep your dress as simple as possible, without being too boring – you’re sure to get lots of compliments if you do!
