How to choose the perfect wedding dress

The time has arrived! Now it’s time to search for the wedding dress that you’ve been dreaming of for so long. To help you find the perfect dress for your wedding, here is a list of 10 tips made by Zankyou in collaboration with several experts from the wedding industry. Do not miss out!

1. Follow your heart

The best advice for all brides is to choose the designs you like most, no matter what others think. It’s your day and your wedding dress should represent you. Do not live under the illusion that red is the only color you can wear on your wedding day. 

Tell your ideas to your dress designer but don’t rely fully on his opinion. Let your designer know your desires for your dream day. Follow your heart and let your personality shine through on your special day.

 2. Be yourself

 When choosing your wedding dress, the decision should be made completely on your own. Whatever your designer says, what really matters is that you feel like yourself in the dream dress of your choosing. Zankyou is here to show you what the wedding trends are.

3. Do not go dress shopping with a lot of company

Believe it or not, too many opinions can have a negative influence when it comes to choosing your wedding dress. Do not go dress shopping with a lot of people. It is more difficult to keep the dress a secret and there is less calm and more opinions. Take only one or two people who you feel comfortable with and have confidence in, like your mother and sister.

Do not show your wedding dress to all your friends and relatives. Keep it a secret so that on your wedding night, you can surprise your guests.

4. Choose the pattern and color that you favor

 The brides must choose a dress with style and discretion. A bride should not choose something too exaggerated, but something that highlights her strong points delicately. You have to know what you want to emphasize and what to hide.

Choose a pattern and color that compliments your skin. Try colors like red, yellow, blue, gold, and silver. Find out which colors make you shine. Everyone is different. For the perfect result, you must consider what enhances your unique features so you can be beautiful and radiant, while still being yourself.

5. Don’t be nervous!

The wedding goes by so fast. Do not let stress ruin it! Remember that the only thing that matters is the person who is waiting for you down the hall. Take proper rest to shine on your dream day. Do not be nervous.

6. Choose comfort and quality

 Comfort is very important, but you should not think that you can’t be beautiful and comfortable at the same time. If you wear a dress that feels too tight, you may not enjoy the feast and will possibly regret it.  Choose one that makes you feel comfortable and confident so you can enjoy the big day.

7. Consider designing your own dress

Many brides think that going to a dressmaker is too expensive, but that is not always the case. If you are overwhelmed by seeing s0 many different pieces and nothing that you like, relax. You can design, customize, and create your own dress with the help of a dressmaker. Choose what makes you feel special and personalize it with something that makes it unique: It should reflect your personality!

8. Try it out! Walk and move

When you think you’ve found the dress of your dreams, test it out. Walk, sit, jump, dance, and lift your arms. If there is anything that you cannot do, then it’s not the perfect dress. You will be in your dress for many hours, so you should feel completely comfortable in it.
