Making a statement at one’s wedding is the dream of every bride. However, before going in search of your gown, consider the following :

  • Are there any attire restrictions at your ceremony venue, particularly if it is a house of religion.
  • The formality of your wedding.
  • Your fiance’s personality. Does he dress up or dress down?
  • What’s your style? Traditional, dcontemporary, quirky, sophisticated, glamourous, fairytale, simple, minimalist?
