Selecting a wedding gown is possibly one of the most
exciting parts of planning your wedding.
It's one of the most fun aspects of preparing for the
wedding and the selected gown can set the theme for
the entire wedding.
Regardless of whether you know what kind of
gown you want or not, it is a dress you will remember
for the rest of your life.
Choosing a gown is definitely one aspect of your
wedding plans you do not want to leave until the last
You will probably need to order your gown about
four to six months in advance and you should begin
looking for one at least nine months before the wed-
Don't under-estimate how long it might take to
find the gown for you.
All those fittings will take time.
The experience of the bridal shop staff will be able
to help you in making your selection, so do not be
afraid to ask questions.
Gowns don't always look the same on hanger as
they do on you, so try on more than one gown.
You might find that a gorgeous gown on the hang-
er might not flatter your figure as you'd hoped. Never
choose a gown without trying it on.
When it comes to your gown budget, make sure
that you take into consideration things such as head-
piece, shoes, gloves, jewellery, undergarments, and
Also don't forget to include alterations in your
budget, as there will most certainly be a few.

Gorgeous gowns, stylish suits
With changing fashion, modern
grooms are selecting a range of
looks for the wedding day, from the
classic tuxedo to a casual button up
shirt and trousers.
The tuxedo remains a popular
choice as there isn't a man alive
who doesn't look great in one of
these but when deciding on attire
you need to keep in mind the for-
mality of the event.
Create a look that fits your per-
sonality, complements the bride
and suits the wedding.
A casual beach wedding is the
perfect place to pull out a pair of
stylish trousers and linen shirt,
which can be paired with sandals.
An outdoor garden wedding can
also be a more casual affair and
men may opt to wear a simple suit
and skip the tie.
With a range of funky and fash-
ionable hats, scarves, ties and belts
out there, many grooms opt to add
a touch of flair to their look.
For the fancier wedding, there
are a variety of suit styles available,
from a traditional three piece suit
to a full tuxedo and cummerbund.
Remember the groom's look
should compliment the brides, but
should make the man feel confi-
dent and comfortable.
