1. Get the gown of your dreams ready beforehand

We know how stressful it is to find the perfect wedding dress. After all, it’s something you probably haven’t ever tried on before and can literally make or break your big day like no other so we understand the pressure.

With all the eyes hooked to you, it’s important you remember the tone of your wedding while choosing your enthralling dress- is it a casual beach bash or a regal ballroom affair?  With so many beautiful cuts and designs (sheath, A-line, fit n flare, organza, tulle and so much more) ruling the market, know what suits you best and complements you inside out. Take ideas from celebrity brides and look for a linking theme- is everyone donning something voluminous? Lacy? Embellished with open backs?

2. Get the bridesmaids ready

First of all – congrats to all bridesmaids, it truly is the most wonderful feeling ever. Now that you’re done with your dream wedding dress, time to start on another shopping journey – the quest for the impeccable bridesmaid dress. Ask them about the style and cuts that emphasizes on their finest bits and work around those as per your budget. Also remember to play off the season, venue and color schemes. Is your wedding organized at a rustic vineyard with lavish burgundy décor? Hot pink bridesmaid dresses are your best bet then. Rich hues like emerald and marsala work perfect for the fall whilst lighter colors like lavender and mint are flawless for spring.  Another amazing idea is so pick shades from a darker to lighter shades for a contemporary and so vivacious feel. Or go for an all-white wedding party for a look that’s so chic and crisp with plush fresh flower tiaras for added luxe.

Have a final meeting at least a week before the day and go over any last minute details.
