Dress up like you’re about to get pounded by a stripper, even if it’s just for the camera.
These four tips will help you dress up your wedding dress for the right occasion.
Your wedding dress is not only your responsibility but also your wedding.
Take time to consider your personal style and style expectations.
Do you want your dress to be a classic or a trendy piece?
Do you prefer to wear a classic style, or do you prefer a trendy look?
The choice is yours and your choice will matter.
If you are married, make sure your wedding party is aware of the dress style.
Don’t assume that a bride in your wedding photo is wearing a dress that’s “appropriate” for her wedding.
If your bride is wearing the dress you’re interested in, ask them to please wear the dress they’re wearing.
This way, you can get your wedding theme across.
It’s best to dress in a casual way.
Avoid showing off your wedding style.
If the dress looks too big, wear a smaller size.
For example, if your dress is a size XXL, you’d wear a size 16 or 16A dress, not a size 34 or 34B dress.
If it’s too small, make the dress smaller by removing the extra layers.
For a wedding party, make your wedding more casual by choosing a casual dress or a sporty dress.
When you’re getting married, don’t get too excited about your wedding day.
Think about your time.
Think of what you have planned and make sure that you can manage your expectations well.
When in doubt, ask for a date.
If there’s a lot of pressure, ask a date and get the support you need.
If that date is not available, consider asking another date.
