Buying the right wedding dress is tough – I admit. But, you know what’s tougher? Slaying the wedding look with your wedding dress. It takes a lot of work to look perfect on your special day, but I hope that these quick tips will help you out and you will look your best.
These tips will help your dress look BEAUTIFUL on you.
1. Work on Your Dream Wedding Body
First things first, if you want to look super chic in your wedding dress, you should work on your body. This doesn’t mean that you have to be a gym rat 24/7, but, try to get in shape and look fit before your wedding.
The purpose of a good wedding dress is to showcase your body. So, you will only unlock the charm of the dress if you have a desirable body.
2. Choose the Right Undergarments for the Dress
Your undergarments give you the right body shape for the dress and keep you comfortable. So, choose your undergarments wisely. For example, you do not want a shoulder-strapped bra for a sleeveless gown.
It will only destroy the purpose of the beautiful gown, so, make sure that you have the right undergarments underneath.
3. Minimize the Makeup, Let the Dress Shine
A common mistake among brides these days is too much makeup. It’s understandable that they want to look their best, but heavy makeup can do the exact opposite sometimes.
The goal is to keep the dress in the center of all attention. So, go easy on the makeup and let the dress shine.
4. Pick up the Right Pair of Shoes for the Occasion
One of your main focus points should be shoes. Make sure that you can walk comfortably in your shoes and that they match with your dress. If you want to play safe then go with the same color of shoes as your dress.
It never goes wrong. Your shoes should allow you to glide across the carpet.
5. The Perfect Belt Is Essential for the Perfect Look
You have NO IDEA the way that a perfect belt can elevate the dress. It can help to improve the appearance of your wedding gown substantially. Both similar colors and contrasting colors work fine with the gown.
The shape is important. Go for a slimmer belt if you are in better shape. Otherwise, choose belts that have an uneven cut.
6. Choose the Fabric that You Feel Comfortable In
Do not worry about the extravagant design of the dress. Instead, you should focus on the fabric of the dress. The fabric is the most important thing that people see on a wedding dress.
Make sure that you feel comfortable in the fabrics.
7. Showcase Your Best Physical Feature
It mind sound a bit shallow, but this is how the appearance of a wedding dress works. Instead of making a poorly fitted dress, choose a dress that showcases your unique features.
If you have a larger bust around your chest, it would be a good idea to showcase it through your dress. The same goes for your behind, hips, and waist.
8. Pre-Wedding Care for Your Whole Body
The wedding glow doesn’t just come naturally. You should work for your wedding glow. Starting with detoxification of your body is a wise move. Keep your skin moisturized, tanned, and well-shaven.
Do not forget to give your body enough time to relax. A healthier you will definitely look happier in the dress.
9. Work on the Accessories but Don’t Go Overboard
Accessories are one of your best friends when you want to stand out. But, the trick is to not go overboard with the accessories. Pair your dress with a matching pearl necklace, shiny earrings, and a nice bangle – the choices are endless.
If you have a family heirloom accessory, this is probably the best time to wear it.
10. Something Borrowed, Something New and Something Blue
Keeping up with the old tradition is always a fun way to improve the wedding vibe. Choose your something borrowed carefully. You do not want it to go unseen.
But, at the same time, don’t make it too flashy. A blue handkerchief, a pair of blue earrings, or simply a blue feather for your hair will definitely glam-up your look.
11. Match Your Hairdo with Your Dress
Your hairdo is definitely the most crucial thing that everyone is going to notice. Try getting a hairdo that fits with your dress and the veil. If you have a deep shoulder cut on your dress, then stick with a beautifully done hair bun.
If you have a netted veil, then it is a good idea to let your hair down. Get the best hairdo that matches with your dress.
12. Take Good Care of Your Skin Beforehand
Book yourself a spa and skin treatment before the wedding day. It will help your skin become more radiant and relaxed. Pair that up with a message to enjoy more flexibility.
Moisturize, cleanse, and exfoliate – care for your skin to look good on the wedding day.
13. Know All the Different Shades of White
The classic white dress will never be out of fashion. But, truth be told, not everyone is meant to wear the same shade of white. You should choose the right shade of white depending on your skin color and skin type.
Choose from a variety of pale white, off white, coral white, pearl white, beige, and so on.
14. Let Your Veil and Flowers Be the Perfect Frame
Veils and flowers are also a very important part of the whole look. You should choose the colors of the flowers based on the location and the dress. It will help you to look more coordinated.
If you are not sure about the flower color, then simply go with red. The length of the veil should also be dramatic. Not TOO long, but long enough to ensure the OOMPH effect!
15. Work on Your Posture While Wearing the Dress
The goal is to feel confident and comfortable in your wedding dress. So, if you slouch while wearing the dress it will affect your overall look. Do a trial run while wearing the dress.
Work on your posture and make sure that you can stand steady and tall with the dress.
16. Nails, Brows, and Teeth – The Minor Details
Often, we overlook the minor details that can either make or break your game. So, make sure you have your teeth whitened because there is going to be a lot of smiling throughout the day.
Get your nails done and have a manicure/pedicure. Finally, make sure those eyebrows are at the top of their game.
