Have you been dreaming of wearing the perfect wedding dress since you were five years old? Or perhaps you have recently got engaged and feel overwhelmed by the wide range of choices available to you? Karim London specialises in helping brides find stunning Wedding Dresses which exude charm and elegance. If you would like some pointers in locating ‘the one’ you’ve been looking for, follow our guide to help you find your dream wedding dress.
Type of wedding
Before deciding on the perfect dress, it is helpful if you have an idea about the type of wedding celebrations you will be enjoying. Your attire for a city wedding will usually be very different to what you might wear to a beach or country club ceremony. For example, our Nicola wedding dress design is distinctly bohemian and would be a beautiful choice for a wedding with a relaxed vibe. In contrast, the Emma style is an ideal choice for wedding celebrations with plenty of grandeur about the occasion.
Know your body shape
Have you thought about the silhouette you would like to create with your choice of wedding dress? The right gown will accentuate all of the positive features of your body shape and play down those which you are less comfortable with. Choosing the perfect dress comes down to understanding your body and knowing which styles complement it. Some of the most popular shapes include fishtail, such as our Courtney gown, sweetheart necklines which you will find in our Cassie gown or a princess skirt like our breath-taking Hazel style. Draw attention to your most flattering features, whether that be a slim waist, an ample chest or long, slender legs. It is important that you feel confident in your choice of gown, so you can stand tall and feel like a million dollars.
Preparing to try on your bridal gown
Before you slip into the wedding dress of your dreams, remember to wear the right type of underwear to suit the gown. A strapless bra will suit any gown which is sleeveless, although ladies with a larger bust may welcome the extra support of a corset if there is not one already built into your gown. Spanx can also create a slim silhouette if you are wearing a tighter dress.
Don’t be afraid to try different styles
Even if you are already in touch with the perfect dress for your body shape, it can be a great idea to try styles you would not normally feel drawn to, if only to rule them out. If your usual dress style is sleek and figure-hugging, why not try a more romantic, vintage gown instead? You might be surprised at the results! Karim London stocks a wide variety of beautiful wedding dresses, along with evening wear for other members of the bridal party.
