What you should pay attention to with the wedding dress
Emotions and tears are not a must-have when buying a wedding dress. However, you will notice it based on certain signs when you have discovered the perfect wedding dress for you.
When you have found the right wedding dress for you, you shouldn’t necessarily buy it right away without thinking further. There are various points that you should pay attention to.
Find the right shape or silhouette
Wedding dresses are not only available in different types of wedding dresses, as you can see in our overview on the linked page. There are also different silhouettes, such as A-line, mermaid, empire or in a princess cut. In the linked post you can see very pretty wedding dresses from küssdiebraut. But you can also find a great overview of different styles, silhouettes and types on their website.
Not every shape or silhouette fits every bride perfectly. While an A-line is an all-rounder and is also suitable for curvy women, a fit’n flare wedding dress or a mermaid silhouette is more suitable for slimmer women, depending on the dress. Of course, every woman can put on the dress what she likes best. However, if you already think at first glance in the mirror that one or the other place looks a bit unfavorable, then it may not be the perfect wedding dress for you.
Tip: You fell in love with a strapless wedding dress but you don’t like your upper arms? Then maybe a nice lace bolero would be interesting for you. But here, too, please pay attention to the color so that it goes perfectly with your dress.
It is important to be comfortable to wear
When trying on your wedding dress, you shouldn’t just look at yourself in the mirror. Walk around with your wedding dress and maybe dance a round with your companion. It is also very important that you sit down in the dress once.
Not without reason, because your chosen dress should not pinch or pinch at any point. It should feel like a second skin and be very comfortable to wear. Not without reason, because after all, you will spend many hours in the wedding dress on the day of the wedding. A high level of comfort is of course important.
Quality of workmanship
While the appropriate shape or silhouette and wearing comfort are more of a subjective perception, the quality of the workmanship of the wedding dress is more tangible and, above all, visible. Regardless of which dress you choose, pay attention to clean seams and buttonholes as well as no (or very few) protruding threads. It should all look even and smooth. A zipper should open and close the very first time without any problems.
An odor and feel test is also helpful. If the wedding dress you are wearing already smells very unpleasant when you try it on, this can be an indication of the use of chemicals. When doing the feel test, you should run your palm over both sides of the fabric. If the fabric feels very rough and scratchy, this can be a sign of poor quality. However, the fabric shouldn’t feel very unnaturally smooth either, as it can then be treated accordingly in order to appear more valuable.
Pay attention to the color
Probably a matter of course for many, but perhaps not for some. Pay attention to the color of your wedding dress. Because white is not always white. Wedding dresses come in a few different tones. It is important that the color of your wedding dress matches the veil and your other accessories perfectly.
An ivory wedding dress does not necessarily go well with snow-white bridal shoes. You shouldn’t forget the bridegroom either. At the latest on the photos it will be clear that your eggshell-colored wedding dress does not match the shirt in white.
Nowadays it is no longer just a question of the design, price and quality of a wedding dress. More and more newlyweds are opting for a sustainable greenery wedding. For example, sustainable handkerchiefs are not only used for tears of joy at the wedding, but also suitable outfits.
With your wedding dress, make sure that you use recycled materials or organic cotton. Sewing thread and lace ribbons in particular can be made and used very well from recycled materials. Also pay attention to the small details, such as the use of buttonholes instead of elastic bands on lace fabrics.
Sustainability cannot only be promoted with the materials used. How about an alternative to a “normal” wedding dress with a two-piece? This not only gives you a much larger selection of different combination options on the day of the wedding, but you can also continue to wear the pieces after the wedding.
“Good for the environment, beautiful for the bride.” This is the motto under which küssdiebraut produces wedding dresses. We are a küssdiebraut fan for a reason. There you will find, among other things, really nice mix and match bridal wear.
