Know your unique beauty
We are all different and that is beautiful! By starting to acknowledge your unique beauty and refusing to compare yourself to other brides, you’ll start to feel so much better about your own skin. It’s also worth remembering that everyone, no matter their dress size and body shape, have their insecurities, but you don’t have to change yourself to be happy on your big day.
Buy the dress that will fit you now
Of course you can never be certain of how your body will have changed come the day of your wedding, however, setting yourself goals for significant change can seriously affect your pocket and mental health. Our advice: buy a dress that fits your amazing body on the day you try it on, you can account for some small change but never set an unattainable goal that will put a lot of pressure on your shoulders, preparing for your wedding should be fun!
Know the dress styles that will suit your unique shape
Before you go dress shopping, do your research. Different dress styles and shapes are going to fit people differently and by understanding the shapes that look best on your figure you will have more fun finding the dress. If you aren’t sure, pop in to or call your chosen bridal boutique and ask the expert. They’ll be happy to discuss what will accentuate your best features and help you feel more confident on the big day. As a bonus, they’ll be able to plan ahead for your shopping experience as they’ll know what you’re looking for.

Extreme diets are not the answer

Your partner loves you!
