Formal weddings offer an opportunity to upscale your planning and to pull out all the stops. Grandiose nuptials demand long formal dresses and lavish table settings, in an exquisite and exclusive wedding venue. If you’re lucky enough to have an unlimited wedding planning budget, this creative wedding theme has no restrictions other than your imagination.
Last week we unveiled our one long sleeve lace wedding dress collection, full of beautiful new dresses to inspire your wedding planning. The dressing room has always been a negative self-talk space for me and there is no room for that while finding the one! Instead of saying “I hate the way this makes my hips look” or “My arms look so fat”, try only talking in positive statements like “I think A-Line dresses are more flattering on me” or “I like the way the second dress made me feel more”.
But don’t let that scare you – shopping can be a wonderful experience, as long as you remember a few key things. To help make your long dresses for weddings shopping experience as painless and enjoyable as possible, we have a few tips for you.
Before you launch into trying on dresses, you should take some time to really think about what you want from your dress. First, think about your day and what kind of wedding dress will be most appropriate – for example a beach wedding vs a formal ballroom reception, winter vs summer, outdoor ceremony vs indoor etc etc.
