Common Mistakes Brides Make When Choosing a Wedding Dress

Does every girl want to look her best on her wedding day? Am I right? It’s true, but the problem is they make severe mistakes when choosing their bridalwear. Their bad taste ends up running their look. To ensure you don’t repeat these mistakes, we will mention them in brief detail.

Too Whitish

White can be a tough color to pull off. It needs good quality fabric like lace, silk, chiffon, etc.  It’s a significant reason most brands use synthetic fabrics to cut costs. Therefore, you better choose something simple with good fabrics instead of flashy with low-quality materials.

A bridal dress with subtle but handmade details is far better than something flashy covered with only cheap stuff. If you want the ball-gown look but can’t buy from a designer or boutique, then purchase second-hand. Once the dress is tailored to fit your boy, no one will know you bought it second-hand.

If this is the path you want to take, it may also be smart not to limit yourself to local stores. Lots of brides shop online wedding dresses that present a better fit and style than what their local stores offer. Therefore, you should give it a try as well.

Too ShinyJJ’s House

Matte Fabrics don’t attract much attention, but they steal the show. The problem with shiny dresses is they always look cheap despite how much you paid for them. It may look like it made from sateen bedsheet even if it’s pure. Plus, you need soft-shades like ivory instead of bright whites.

Forget rhinestones, the less sparkle you have, the better.

Being Too Exotic

Its alright if you want something exotic, more power to women. Just understand that corsetry, lace-up backs (back or front) and extreme cleavage doesn’t represent a bride, these details are rather objectionable.

Wedding dresses are about sophistication. So instead of picking something inspired from lingerie, get something with either one of these details.”

  • High Slit
  • Plunging Neckline
  • Illusion Paneling

Avoid having all of these features altogether. They will ruin the serenity of your wedding dress. Focus on fine fabrics and subtle but quality embellishments.


Choosing a Bridal Dress

Don’t look like you have been squashed into your dress. You want to look like you were poured into your dress, not you are about to pour out of it. Nothing beats a proper fit.

Going Overboard

You can’thave everything in your dress and look elegant.  Ruffles, beading, lace, bows, and embellishment compliment your look, they don’t make your look. Sorry to break it to you but you can have it all, just focus on one main decorative statement across your dress Its ok if other parts of your dress aren’t as noticeable. If your dress is too bulky, it will look cheap or stuck on.

Straplessbridalwear with straps

Avoid strapless,oryou will spend your wedding day adjusting your dress. It doesn’t matter whether you do it because of bad fitting, or you are used to wearing such dresses, you will look awkward.

If you never wore a strapless dress, then avoid it at your wedding. Straps support you and keep everything in place. JJ’s House has an excellent collection of bridalwear with straps. Straps, if they designed right, upstate your look instead of running it.
