Shes dressed the worlds most famous modern-day brides from Chelsea Clinton and Victoria Beckham to Kate Hudson and Jennifer Lopez. So veteran bridal designer Vera Wangs wedding day advice is worth listening to.
Yesterday she gave her invaluable ten pointers for wedding day dos.
1. Feeling comfortable in your appearance is incredibly important. If you feel comfortable with the way you look, you will radiate the most confidence.
Ergo dont try something challenging or different.
2. Determine what kind of wedding you are having. The volume, silhouette, proportions, amount of adornment, tailoring and other elements of the dress should have a lot to do with not only where you have your wedding, but what time of day it is being held and what the temperature is. [The dress is] not only about how it looks on your body.
Layers of tulle speaks of summer, intricate beading of winter. But not exclusively; its a minefield...
3. Its really important to see the whole look the dress, the headpiece, the size of the bouquet and the shoes. I would even go so far as to include the makeup. A lot of girls put a tremendous amount of effort into the dress, but they dont give a lot of thought to the headpiece, tiara, barrettes or other accessories. Very often they are an afterthought.
4. Go easy on the bouquet. Bouquets that are too large or too loud will detract from the dress.
