It’s the start of the New Year! Bridal Show season is upon us, which means lots of wedding planning begins including looking for a wedding dress. We understand that shopping for the perfect wedding dress can be overwhelming and frustrating at times. Here are 6 tips that will help you help you with your wedding dress shopping experience.
1. Be honest about the dress
Be honest with your wedding dress consultant about the dresses you try on. When trying on dresses ask yourself: “Do I feel beautiful, confident, and comfortable in the dress? Can I sit down without feeling self-conscience? Can I move it in without feeling trapped? Is this a dress I can wear all day?” If you cannot answer these questions, it may not be the right dress , no matter how beautiful it is.
2. Strike a balance when trying on dresses
Dresses always look good on a hanger (they can look awful too). Avoid making a quick judgment. You must try the dress on to see it if fits your silhouette. This means that you may need to try on several dresses but not too many. Trying on too many dresses can lead to frustration, confusion, and disappointment. To make it easier, look at bridal magazines or Pinterest to get an idea of the perfect wedding dress for you. This will help you try on the right amount of dresses without feeling overwhelmed. If you don’t find the dress you want and begin getting frustrated, take a break and try again another day. Also, work with your dress consultant as they can assist you with finding the perfect dress for you.
3. Don’t order a smaller dress size
You may be alarmed at the size wedding dress you order. It turns out that bridal gowns can run two or three sizes larger than what you would normally wear. We all have hopes to be a small size on our wedding day. So once you locate the perfect wedding dress, order that in the size you are that day. The great news is that when you lose weight, the bridal dress shop can always adjust it to your reduced size. Focus more on the look and how amazing you feel in the dress than the size. You will be happier on your wedding day as a result.
4. Begin dress shopping at least 6 months before the wedding
You should begin shopping for a dress 6 to 7 months before your wedding. Picking your wedding dress within 4 months of the wedding date is considered to be a rush. A rush order will incur extra costs. If you are under 2 months away, you may have to take whatever is on the rack. This could be frustrating as it may not end up being the dress of your dreams.
5. Shop for your gown with the right under garments
When gown shopping you will spend a lot of time in your underwear. So wear something pretty, which must include a well-fitted bra. Before gown shopping, get fitted for the perfect bra. There is power in having well-fitted undergarments under your wedding dress. Also consider wearing spandex. This will make it easier to slip in and out of all the wedding dresses you will try on that day.
6. Make an appointment
Make your appointment with the bridal shop to try on wedding dresses. This will allow your wedding gown shopping day is as smooth as possible. When you make an appointment it secures your spot. It is also recommended that you make the appointment for as early as possible. The store will be less crowded and you can get more attention from your consultant as a result.
The entire process of planning a wedding from beginning to end can be exciting or stressful. Your dress shopping will be better if you remember to be honest with yourself. Don't forget to shop early enough and follow the other tips listed above. These tips will assist you with having an enjoyable wedding dress shopping experience. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Brides World in Sandusky, Ohio at (419) 626-8539.
The Celebrity Edge, is a ship designed for a cruising experience unlike any before. How was ship named? It was simple, as the designers of the ship envisioned each part, they saw the design features were on the leading edge of possibility with each element they crafted. And so “Edge” became the name. This also starts a new class of ships, “Edge Class”, with new ships already in the designing phase.
If you’re like many cruisers that aren’t fans of having to wait on a cramped deck to board your tender to shore when your cruise ship is stopping in port, then you’ll love the Magic Carpet, a cantilevered platform that moves up and down the exterior of the ship depending on the need of the moment. It will never move while guests are on it for safety reasons, but its function changes depending on what deck it is positioned. When on Deck 2, The Magic Carpet is a relaxing waiting area for passengers to sit and chat until their tender boat comes to pick them up. The Edge tenders, known as Edge Launches are enclosed air-conditioned boats with large windows and bucket seats to travel to the port in style.
When The Magic Carpet is on Deck 16, it serves as a specialty restaurant in the evenings named Dinner on the Edge. Thanks to its position on the outside of the ship, you’ll literally be dining over the open water. The views from your table will be outstanding.
As The Magic Carpet moves to other decks throughout the day, it becomes an extension of the pool area on Deck 14 at times with lounge space, an active bar and live music. Then later becomes an al fresco extension of different specialty restaurant on Deck 5 aptly named Edge's Raw on Five seafood eatery.
No matter what deck you step onto the Magic Carpet from, one thing’s for certain: you won’t want to miss the chance to see the world from its vantage point.
One of the best parts about a cruise vacation is being able to view the scenery as you sail along the open ocean and seas passing gorgeous coastal towns and stopping at the scheduled ports of call as the beautiful landscapes come into view. Now, Celebrity Cruises, with the debut of Celebrity Edge, brings the outside in for your cruise more than ever before with The Edge Stateroom with Infinite Veranda. This newly designed stateroom features remotely controlled doors that open completely to let you bring the sea air right into your stateroom, so you can easily step up to the railing and see the sights that each day brings you.
What does this mean for your experience? A cruise ship that puts a focus on contemporary design with artistic flair and without sacrificing comfort. You’ll find bright, airy settings along with the modern luxury details discerning travelers from around the world have come to expect from Celebrity Cruises.
Celebrity Edge’s first sailing departed December 16, 2018, from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, which will also serve as Celebrity Edge’s homeport. Celebrity Edge will offer two different itineraries from Fort Lauderdale. The options will be an Eastern Caribbean Cruise that visits San Juan, Puerto Rico; Tortola, The British Virgin Islands; and Philipsburg, St. Maarten. The other itinerary option sails around the Western Caribbean and stops in Key West, Florida; Cozumel, Mexico; Costa Maya, Mexico; and George Town, Grand Cayman.
