Four Things Most Brides Forget When Picking Out A Wedding Dress

A wedding dress is one of the most important aspects of your big day as a bride. After all, it is the centerpiece of your entire wedding aesthetic and should be a gown you feel comfortable, beautiful, and confident in. But while every Lawton, OK bride should look her best on her wedding day, there are some things many women forget to consider when making the final choice.

Take our Allure Bridal and Prom staff’s recommendations and remember to factor in these four things when finding “the dress.” Read on to learn more and make a bridal appointment to find your perfect fit!

The Season

One of the most important things to consider when choosing a wedding dress is the season in which the wedding will take place. For example, a long-sleeved dress with heavy material is probably not the best choice for a summer wedding. Similarly, a sleeveless or off-the-shoulder lightweight dress may not be the best choice if you're getting married during the winter months. Brides need to keep the season in mind so they can be comfortable throughout their wedding day.

The Venue

The wedding venue also plays a critical role in determining which dress will end up being “the dress.” Our Allure Bridal and Prom team recommends considering if your ceremony or reception will be inside or outside, what the location entails, and what the overall style of your wedding looks like. Whether you’re getting married in a traditional church setting, a garden, or on the beach, make sure your dress fits in with the venue and overall vibe.

The Undergarments

Undergarments are an essential, but often forgotten, part of any wedding dress. Many brides forget to consider what bra or underwear they will want, or need, wear on their big day. During your bridal appointment, remember to consider if your dress selection will require a bra — traditional or strapless — or other undergarments and if you are okay with wearing them under your dress.

The Accessories

Accessories can transform a beautiful dress into an extraordinary one. You as a bride may not know for sure what accessories you’d like to wear with your dress — a necklace, earrings, gloves, or a headpiece — but this needs to be considered when visiting a bridal shop. These details can enhance the overall look of the dress and add a personal touch, but they need to match the overall look and feel of the dress you pick.
