Choosing a wedding dress is often portrayed as a long and arduous process but in truth, the decision will be made in an instant.
Yes, you will probably need to try on lots of the different designs that catch your eye, and that can take time but deciding on which one you are going to take the plunge with will take a matter of seconds once you see yourself in the mirror. This is one decision for your wedding that doesn’t need pondering, when you know; you know!
For this most important purchase you need to leave it up to your instinct. Leave the trend-book at home, park your pre-conceived ideas about what looks good on you and trust your own reaction when you see yourself zipped up at a fitting.
When choosing your dress, it is easy to get stuck on a design but from personal (and customer experience) it pays to keep an open mind to dresses that catch your eye but maybe aren’t in-keeping with the princess dress with a 20ft train that you’ve wanted since you were 9 years old!
At Queen Street Fashion we see so many Brides fall foul of this golden rule, they opt for a bunched up mass of white fabric because tradition won’t leave them alone. They forget what the true purpose of the wedding dress actually is; confidence.
Style, movement, comfort and downright elegance will yield far more confidence than a puff princess gown ever could. Convention means nothing; Confidence means everything.
Thankfully, as wedding dress designs move to ‘style’ it out rather than ‘puff it out’, the only meringue likely to be at the wedding this year will be on the dessert table where it belongs and not walking down the aisle.
So, remember the true purpose of the wedding dress and your search for THE dress will stay fresh and exciting. At Queen Street Fashion, we go out of of way to make sure that is the case. Fully fitted creations, inspired by personalities not by convention. Fittings are fun; friends, prosecco, nibbles, polaroids……all leading to that split second decision. We’ve seen it happen so many times and it still melts our heart every time.
