Its All About The Dress!!

                                  It's All About The Dress

2013 is all about strapless! The sweetheart neck line can add a touch of classic style to your dress. How to choose the perfect dress is always a challenge, there are so many styles out there. Here's a list of helpful hints when choosing your dress:                         
                          *You want to highlight the narrowness of your midsection
                                   and have it flow away from your hips and thighs.
                          *Fabric that are sturdier do not cling as much (duchesse and taffeta)
                          *If you're busty look for a scoop neck dress
                          *Satin, empire waist dresses are ideal for the plus sized bride
                          *Trumpet, sheath and a modified A-line gown is ideal for a petite bride, 
                                  also be sure to stay  away from a drop waist dress, 
                                  this will make you look like your legs are non-existent.
                          *Be sure you can sit down! 
                                   This may sound silly but some fuller dresses are difficult to sit in.
Dresses come in all shapes, sizes, styles, colors and especially prices. Be sure to shop around, don't just settle on the first one you find. Remember its your special day and you want to feel comfortable and happy with you choice. Happy Dress Hunting!

Stress-Free Wedding

When it comes to all the stresses of preparing for the big day how do you stay organized and refrain from going crazy and pulling your hair out? Now-a-days everyone has computers or tablets, so use them to you advantage, create a folder just for your wedding, use a Word program or an Excel spread sheet, label each sheet with different aspects of your wedding making sure to include vendors and contact info. In addition to this make a folder or a binder containing paper work, printed out emails and receipts. Get your Husband to be involved too, it's his day as well so you shouldn't have all the stress on you! Creating a check list for the two of you will help you both to see what has been done and what still needs to be done. Picking a budget and sticking to that amount will relieve stress also, because nothing is more stressful than realizing you've gone way over budget. Not only will all this do-it yourself things help but having a wedding planner is a enormous stress reducer but is also great to help make your special day go smooth. So explore all your options and remember your wedding doesn't have to be stressful!
