WEDDING DRESS TIPS- WHY COMFORT MATTERS?

 Did you know that my wedding was a summer one? With my seventh wedding anniversary coming up, I decided to show you the dress I got married in. I want to share with you my wedding dress tips, i.e. what shopping for a wedding dress taught me. I'll tell you why I decided to get married in a Grecian style dress. Moreover, today we'll talk bridal fashion. I'll share my selection of a few weddings from  AWBridal® UK, a company that provides wedding dresses, accessories and decor. When this bridal store asked me to do a collaboration with them, I decided to select a few wedding dresses that are both elegant and comfortable to wear. If you are curious about this shop, you can read aw bridal Review. Anyhow, if I were to have a wedding ceremony again (and I might renew my vows some day), I would definitely choose a wedding dress in the same style. Why? Well, because Grecian style dresses are among the most comfortable options out there.

WEDDING DRESS TIPS- WHY COMFORT MATTERS?I think that sometimes we get so brainwashed into thinking that we have to suffer to beauty, that we forget that it is possible to look elegant and still be comfortable. Weddings are by definition tiring even for the most happy bride. Let's be honest, weddings can be exhausting, especially when you're the bride because you're the hostess, the one who is in the centre of attention, the one who has to make sure everyone is having a good time. Not the easiest of tasks, is it? No matter how you plan your wedding reception, it is very much a social occasion (unless you elope and get married on a deserted beach but then you might as well wear a bikini). The last thing you want on your wedding day is to feel uncomfortable. I know everyone has a different definition of comfort, but whatever your personal style of dressing might be like, I think we can all agree that comfort matters. I'm not saying that everyone should pick a flowing Grecian style dress for themselves, I'm just saying it might be a good option, especially if you're getting married in summer.
HOW TO SELECT A PERFECT WEDDING DRESS? LESSONS LEARNED!
If there is anything I learned from picking out my wedding dress it is that you shouldn't be a slave to the rules. As soon as I saw my wedding dress, I knew that it was the one. My wedding dress proved to be wonderfully comfortable. I couldn't have asked for a better dress. Funny thing is that I haven't even tried any other wedding dresses. I saw this one in a shop by accident, it wasn't even labeled as a wedding dress, it was sold under the name of a special occasion dress but as soon as I saw it, I just knew that was the one. It wasn't expensive, I'm still happy with it and I can wear my wedding dresses whenever I want to remember my big day. I'm still getting questions about my wedding dress and it's been years since I got married. Many women have asked me about it, some offering to buy it, some asking me to borrow it. After I got married in this wedding dress, I saw quite a few brides opting for a similar style. It is as if my decision made them realize that you don't have to wear the same style as everyone else. A lot of brides will just go and buy the dress everyone else is wearing. I get it because we are all creatures of habits, but sometimes you need to think about what will make you happy.

TIPS FOR ORDERING DRESS ONLINE
When ordering a dress online one thing you have to pay attention is the measurements. Make sure you get correct ones. You need to measure your bust, waist, hips and the length from your shoulder to the floor. Take your time and don't cheat. When taking  measurement for clothes you shouldn't hold the meter too tight. If you're hopeless at doing it, why not ask somebody for help? Just remember that it is important to get the correct measurements because that ensures a perfect fit.
 Another misconception we often have about wedding dresses is that they must be really expensive in order to be well made. That is definitely not the case. While you shouldn't expect a quality wedding dress to cost next to nothing, there are definitely affordable options out there. You can find some gorgeous  wedding dresses at mid range prices.
WEDDING ATTIRE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD- THE SEARCH FOR A PERFECT DRESS
Personally, I always find it fascinating to study different bridal traditions. It seems that when it comes to bridal fashion, we ladies have a lot of in common. We all want to look beautiful on our wedding day. There is always that search for a wedding dress. While wedding attire may differ greatly depending on a culture of bride and groom, in most cultures there is such a thing as a special wedding attire. Not only are the bride and the groom expected to dress up, so are the wedding guests. Throughout history people have been celebrating marriages. Somehow it was deemed that is the way it should be. Considering what marriage should be about, a celebration of love and loyalty between two people, I would say there is plenty of reasons to make this event a happy and special one. Indeed, there is nothing surprising in human desire to celebrate weddings in a special way. The fact that this special day usually includes special clothing is hardly surprising. During history wedding attire underwent many changes, but getting dressed up was always present- in one way or another. Bridal industry offers so many options nowadays. It is wonderful that we no longer don't have to sacrifice the comfort for the sake of elegance. My advice is always that you opt for a dress you can dance the night away in. Wedding dresses that allow you to move freely will give you a feeling of freedom and ease. That is why I recommend picking a dress you can dance in. You can also check out these Etsy dresses and  see if there is something you like. AW Jackets for Bridal looks can be just what you need to finish a wedding (or a wedding guest) look. AllureBridals® is another online shop where you can find beautiful wedding dresses.
