An elegant white wedding dress has been popular for centuries, having been started by Queen Victoria in 1840 in the Western world (white had been the choice of color for Japanese brides for years before). Before then, brides wore their best dresses, and taking a piece of the dress was considered good luck; this often involved the bride having her dress torn, but favors have now taken the place of this tradition.

It is always important to be fitted for your wedding dress by a professional to ensure satisfaction of fit. They can provide you with options for sewn in bra cups, altering and much more. Many Brisbane brides nowadays choose to buy their wedding dresses online to save some money, as many dresses are now made in China and are available for a low rate. However, brides-to-be should be cautious about this because Eastern sizing is much different than Western, and you may end up spending more money than you wanted getting everything let out or hemmed.

There are many different wedding dress styles that are available for the modern bride, from mermaid to vintage and everything in between. It is best to choose a dress that will compliment your body shape: for example, a petite woman may not necessarily want to have a dress with a large, princess-like skirt and could instead opt for a form fitting lace dress with a sweetheart neckline.

It is important to have an idea of what dress you might like when going in to browse them and try them on, but have an open mind and don’t be afraid to take suggestions from the salesperson as well. Try not to take too many people with you; someone from your family and your maid of honor are more than enough; you do not want to be overwhelmed with different people’s opinions. Bring someone you trust.
