The Perfect Wedding Dress

The Perfect Wedding Dress

It is not a secret that planning a wedding no matter how intimate is a very hectic endeavor. So many decisions, so little time for it all. But of course, selecting the right dress is one of the toughest decisions to make.

While some future brides know the outlines of their dress since they were dreaming about it as small girls, for others it is the most confusing, if not dreaded process. Indeed now, there is not only a huge variety of wedding dress styles but colors as well.

Why stress about your dress?


It is only natural that you want to look your best on one of the most important days of your life. That is why even the thought of it is so stressful. Here are a few tips on how to enjoy the process:


  1. As with many things related to wedding choices – the more you know yourself, the better you will know what will make you happy.
  2. Go for your dream, or as close to it as you can. Of course, when you browse through the dress images on Instagram, quite a few “perfect” ideas will come with a high price tag. While some brides are prepared to embrace it, some feel like they would use the money better for something else. 
  3. Try it on anyway! It might turn out that it was not your thing all along, or there is another option that looks quite close but comes with a lower price tag. 
  4. Although compromise is good if you have it in the back of your mind that you would regret not getting “the one”, at least, think about it. We have seen the brides getting a dress, and then another dress at the last minute, feeling that they are not happy with their choice. 
  5. Indeed it is somewhere between “it’s only a dress” and “it is the only dress”! You have every right to stress about it! It is perfectly fine. 

Looks or convenience?

The dress cuts could be drastically different from easy, comfy, and flowy – to the rigid bodice, from short enough to walk, to massive impressive train… Think of the events of the day – what you would feel comfortable with. If indeed it is just transfer from house to limo, from limo to the aisle, and then a few poses for photo ops then, the most elaborate dress and cathedral veil might be indeed workable? There are also tiny secrets – changing shoes for the tough part and switching the dress to a shorter one for the reception dance. It definitely makes things much easier.

Wedding dress orders: dreams and timeframes

Ordering a wedding dress is a long process. As you know, in the stores you try a sample on and then the dress itself is custom made for you. The next step – it is fitted once it arrives. The whole process takes a few months, indeed, almost close to a year. So if you are planning a wedding, this is the first thing you need to think of ordering. (oh well, here goes stress again)…

Where do I get the perfect wedding dress if I need it ASAP?

Since people rarely plan for micro weddings a year in advance, many of the brides who choose to go for a micro wedding do not have an option of ordering custom. But checking with the stores is still a good idea: there are many good reasons why they might have some dresses on hand. And who knows, it might be just what was needed! If you prefer an environmentally-friendly option – there are stores that specialize in pre-owned gowns resale. If you are a Facebook marketplace addict, here is just another resource for you! In many cases, an elegant cocktail dress makes a wonderful solution for the brides who do not want to go through the fuss of ordering.

What is a perfect dress for micro-wedding?

A micro wedding does not necessarily mean that the dress should be too simple. Of course, If you are in the “I want to get away from it all” mood, then understated is indeed what will make you happy. Otherwise, whether it is a simple ceremony in the park or an intimate venue, there is no such thing as being overdressed for your own wedding. We noticed, however, that many brides choose to improvise and have more fun with style and color for micro weddings. After all, the ceremonies are shorter, and the day fits more exciting adventures if you choose to. On the day of the wedding, the bride is always the most beautiful and radiant girl in the room. And it is not because of the dress, trust us. It is the happiness of the moment, it is sharing a beautiful day with friends and family that makes her shine! It is seizing the day! It teaches us a simple thing, it is who you are celebrating with that matters!
