Finding the perfect wedding dress for your big day is one of the most exciting parts of a bride’s wedding planning, but it can also be one of the most nerve-racking too! We often have brides worrying that they won’t be able to find ‘the one’, that they don’t want a white or an ivory one, that they don’t normally ‘do’ dresses and they’re going to look silly! Well, rest assured, we’ve been helping to deliver amazing weddings since 2010, and we are yet to see a bride at Gorcott Hall wedding venue that looked anything less than fabulous!

Choosing Your Wedding Dress

We know that there are so many colours and sizes to choose from that finding your dream wedding dress isn’t always a doddle, it can be overwhelming, but it should definitely be good fun! The search can start at home, with lots of research. Trawl the web for inspiration, look for models with your body shape to get a really good idea of what might suit you (that said, we know lots of brides who actually ended up with a style that they would never have dreamt they would wear, and loved it!). Then comes the fun part trying them on! Whether you’re ordering your wedding dress online for home delivery or heading to a boutique, decide who you want to be there. Our advice would be to keep your entourage quite small; a couple of trustworthy, honest besties are usually perfect for the job.

Wedding Dress Preparation

Take a long bath or shower and choose some nice underwear. That way you’ll feel more like trying on some amazing gowns. Pick out a few to try, but not too many at a time. Too many just lead to confusion and after taking them off you’ll struggle to remember one from the other! You might be one of the lucky brides that fall in love with the first gown you try on, but don’t let that stop you trying on more, it will only help to reinforce the fact that you have found the perfect one. Take photos, even the terrible ones! Oh, we should mention, don’t be horrified by the sizing… they usually come up very small!

When you’ve finally made your choice and purchased ‘the one’ don’t be worried if you suddenly think that you don’t like it any more or that you have bought the wrong one. We come across this all the time! We can almost guarantee that with your wedding hair and makeup done you’ll remember the reasons that you fell for it and fall in love with it all over again on your big day… just like your husband to be!
