Choosing your wedding dress is definitely exciting but it is also a lot trickier than you might think.
When you commence your search for choosing your wedding dress, it is going to be essential that you are familiar with your body type more than anything. I also wanted a mermaid style wedding dress but when I finally tried it on, it wasn’t a pretty sight!
There is going to be a lot of emphasis on your body time in this process of choosing your wedding dress, and it is important to remember that beauty comes in many many different styles, shapes, and sizes. Plus, isn’t all that matters is the look your fiancee has in their eyes when they see you for the first time in that dress?!
When choosing your wedding dress, many brides will try and deceive themselves when it comes to their body type, as they feel their own image is not what society might label as “beautiful”. A poor or even just an “incorrect” body image is one of those unfortunate things so many women encounter and society doesn’t help by their ridiculous notions that we are made to feel this way.
The truth is, in choosing your wedding dress, every single body type has an inherent beauty that can only be accentuated and flattered with the right choice of wedding dress.
Your body is structured according to the ways that nature felt it was best suited.
You should neither hide nor feel embarrassed about this fact when you are choosing your wedding dress.
It will be difficult, while in the process of shopping for your dress, to hear the terms you have applied so often to yourself while looking in the mirror used by employees at the boutique when you are choosing your wedding dress. The only way to avoid this is to be comfortable with who you are. I know I know, so easy to say but much more difficult to do.
With that said, you will want to feel as gorgeous as possible in your wedding gown, and we all have small imperfections that we will want to be hidden on our most important day. This is why SPANX was created! and if you don’t know what SPANX are then please keep that to yourself so I don’t start feeling worse about my own body image. lol
Whatever your body shape may be, do not try and fool yourself into thinking it is something else.
You are going to be on display on your wedding day, and choosing a wedding dress that you wished fit you perfectly would be an incredible mistake.
No matter what your body type, you will look beautiful on your special day in choosing your wedding dress style that conforms to your body type.
It should also be mentioned that very few people actually lose weight in the time leading up to your wedding. The planning can take such a heavy toll in terms of stress and energy that dieting is simply a bad decision. Many brides believe that they can spread the weight loss out over time, but the fact is that, as with any diet, the commitment will be a problem. You may end up blowing the diet and then actually gaining weight as your body tries to compensate. Short term diets in the months before the wedding are a terrible idea, as you will need to maintain your energy levels as the tasks begin piling up. Which is WHY you hire a Wedding Planner.

There is also the added fact that you are going to be attending several parties with awesome food, and you probably will not be able to summon the will power to stay away from it. And why would you not enjoy yourself?
It is best to be honest with yourself when choosing your wedding dress.
In choosing your wedding dress, don’t choose one that you think will look its best on you after you lose eight or ten pounds and 40 in my case! Eight to ten pounds my not seem like a lot but the fact is even these numbers are hard to reach when you are trying to lose weight. It is best not to take the chance.
If you do lose weight, good for you. Wedding dress adjustments are much easier made to fit a bride who has lost some weight than they would be for someone who has gained weight or even stayed the same if you bought a dress a size too small. Please do not factor in weight loss when you are choosing your wedding dress
