Besides wanting to look beautiful on her special day, a bridal gown serves as a special garment, symbolic of a major event in life. It is a big deal in almost every culture and religion. You will likely have many pictures taken in it, maybe save it for your children or grandchildren.
Picking the right bridal gown gown is important because you want to feel beautiful, comfortable, and special on your wedding day. The better you feel about yourself in the dress, the more confidence you’ll have.

The Nigerian Factor
A recently married man commended on his wife’s wedding dress, “when I first saw my wife dressed up in her wedding gown on our wedding day, I went WOW! The gown was made for her body type and it was simply gorgeous.
She looked dazzling in it but it wasn’t only because it was a beautiful gown, but also because lots of planning had gone in to ensure that she stepped out in the perfect gown on our special day.”
Many brides have that mental picture of what they want to look like on their wedding day, and that’s great. In fact, I think it’s necessary to envision your look and feel comfortable with your thoughts before you finally make a selection.
But make sure they are YOUR thoughts, YOUR dreams, YOUR ideas and not what you’ve seen in some magazine or website because eventually, YOU are going to be the one wearing that gown and you have to be comfortable in it in order to carry yourself well.
Wedding gown and wedding theme
The first thing you want to do when you’re trying to shop for bridal gowns is to think about the entire wedding. You want a wedding dress that of course fits with the rest of the occasion.
You wouldn’t wear the same dress on a beach or at a destination wedding as you would for a traditional, formal affair. Therefore you need to think about the entire event, and how your dress will play a role in that.
Wedding gown choice and body type
I had wanted corseted look and had always loved the family designer. In the end, he made a bridal gown that suited my taste. If you are going for a custom made gown or even buying one off the rack, make sure you do your research first. The truth about gowns is your body type matters.
I have seen people in very expensive gowns but wrong style for their body type. So be sure that your choice of gown suits you and not the picture in the magazine.
Try to familiarize yourself with the different styles of wedding gowns before you go shopping.
