It can be frustrating to shop in a universe where it seems like everything is a strapless ball-gown, if a strapless ball-gown isn’t going to be what flatters your boobs, or arms, or whatever you need flattered. Lots of sleeveless (not strapless) dresses can be altered post-production to add a sleeve. Dresses can be shortened, support can be added. Don’t be afraid to ask if changes can be made, and don’t be afraid to ask how much it will cost (hint: it should be reasonable). Read more at A Practical Wedding

Wear your wedding day undergarments to the salon

If you’re planning on wearing Spanx, a special bra, or a long line corset on your wedding day, go to the salon with them on, advises Sabatino. “Support garments can really change the shape of your body quite a bit, so make sure you bring them to your fittings if you’re planning on wearing them on your wedding day.”

Buy the size that fits the biggest part of your body

A lot of brides might think that buying a smaller wedding dress will motivate them to shed weight before the wedding, but the truth is, it just adds a lot of unnecessary stress. “A consultant at the salon will measure you and suggest the right size,” she explains. “And you always have to go with the biggest size. This means, that if you’re bust is measuring a size 12, but your hips are measuring a size 18 — you should buy the dress in a size 18 and alter it down to accommodate the rest of your body.” Read more at Brides

Be confident!

While shopping for a wedding dress, don’t be timid. Tell the consultant exactly what you want, and don’t let them pressure you into buying a style you’re not in love with, no matter how flattering it is. The right dress should make you feel comfortable in your own skin. It’s just as important to know what your dislikes are as it is to find out what you love. Stay true to yourself and don’t be afraid to seek advice from family and friends! — Marisa Russo.
