A common problem for brides is when they go into a boutique, they have a picture of a gorgeous gown on the model it's made to look good on and don't want to see anything else. DON'T DO IT!
1. Keep in mind the people in the boutique have been doing this longer than you. They see all different body types and the good, and bad, dress choices they make. Go in with ideas of what you like BUT be open to their advice and ask them what THEY think you would look good in.
2. Next, research.
I can't tell you how important this is. Research what will look good on you, research what your body type is, research bridal boutiques, etc. Don't just find one gown that is pretty, figure out what you really like about it. There are many pretty gowns but you want to find ones that you look at and go, "I could see myself in that" or "I would look amazing in this."
3. Know your body type.
This is one of the biggest things to understand. Do you have an hourglass or are you more of a pear? If you don't know, take this quiz that will help you take your measurements and give you tips on clothes that look best on your body type.
4. If it feels like the dress when you wear it, then it is the dress. Regardless of what anyone else says, if you love how you look in it then you will be happy. And that's the point isn't it? To be the happiest you can be on this day when you're celebrating the fact that you now have a partner to help you through the good and bad times.
