According to how I’m marketing this page, it is likely that most of you reading this blog would be women in Singapore in your early and mid 20s, looking to get married within the next 5 to 8 years!
Am I right? 😛
Ok, anyway, here is a quick introduction to the various things you need to note when choosing to rent or purchase a wedding gown in Singapore. If you are looking to purchase or rent a bridal gown in Singapore, this is a must-read post for you.
1) Headdress or veil
Yes, there are gown companies which actually sell the headdress or veils separately from the gown. You want to make sure that you check this point out with the bridal gown company before making any kind of decision. Some of them sell it together. So either way, just make sure you know how it is and then make the informed decision after knowing this.
2) Your body type
Some of the bridal gowns are built for women with a bustier chest while others are made for those who are more petite. Also, there are wedding dresses which are meant for taller women, while others are meant for shorter women. In short, both your height and the shape of your body will greatly determine which types of wedding dress will fit you the best. Do not simply go with a particular style because you like it – unless it also suits your height and body shape. Here’s a link to help you find your body shape and thus pick the right wedding gown.
Other than you body shape, make sure that the size of the wedding dress fits you to the T. If it doesn’t, make sure to alter it until it does. Also, if you do not have bra that will look good in that dress, make sure you go and get one which fits. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and you don’t want to feel uncomfortable or worse still look bad in your wedding gown on the actual day of your marriage. Make sure you look good and feel good by picking a dress which suits your size (whether that is plus size or petite or normal).
I do not recommend people to go with the trends. If you have noticed, there are periods of time where dresses of a particular (unique) style is really popular. Don’t pick these type of dresses as you will find that they look really bad many years from now when you look back on your marriage photos. This is because trends are only temporary. Make sure to pick a wedding dress which will be timeless. If you don’t know how to pick a ‘timeless’ wedding dress, then make sure to get someone who knows what this means to go along with you to the try-out session!
