A problem many would-be brides encounter is not being able to make up their mind when deciding between two wedding dresses. It is quite normal to get stuck in a mental dilemma where you are unable to prioritize between one dress that looks slightly better than another but may not be as suitable for the occasion, or it costs more, or it is perhaps less comfortable than the other. How to decide? Well here are a few points that can help you make the right decision without you losing your mind.
- Price tag
Of course price matters a lot when making the choice of wedding dress. As the whole wedding extravaganza really starts to add up, it is always better to stick to your budget when thinking of making a purchase. This does not mean that choosing a cheaper wedding dress is the thing to cut down on expenses! In fact choosing a cheaper wedding dress always means there must be a compromise in the quality of the product. The most important thing to note is that you should never go for a wedding dress which is not made of quality fabric or properly tailored. In the case of a choice between two wedding gowns, if both of them are not compromising over the quality you can eliminate the one that is expensive if you are on a tight budget. But if your budget allows the expensive one and you like it more than the other one, it is better to go for it.
- Point by point distinction
It is easier to make a choice if you can note down the differences between the two gowns point by point. Then, when you have every single detail of both the dresses you can see which one wins on each point and ends up the most points. You could also make a list based on the pros and cons of each dress. The one with most pros is going to be the best choice.
- Gown that flatters your body type
It is easier to decide between two gowns when you decide based on the best figure fit rather than on the design of the gown. The gown that fits with your figure the most closely is the most likely the a better choice than anything else. This will be based on the fabric, style, color and embellishments that flatter your body type the most.
Try both the dresses and see which one is the most comfortable. When it comes down to the big day, you will be relieved to have chosen the wedding dress that offered better comfort than the one that may have looked slightly better but was far less comfortable
- Formality level
You can also make your decision of your wedding based on the formality level of your wedding ceremony. If it is a formal and traditional ceremony that you are going to have you should choose your wedding dress accordingly while on the other hand a casual ceremony deserves an equivalent dress. The climate during the time of your wedding can also help you in deciding your wedding dress.
- Expert help
Always weigh up second opinions and do not to try to decide all by yourself. Seek the assistance of your friends and family who can help you make the right decision. Try both dresses in front of them and get their honest opinion. Do not let them know which one you prefer. You can also ask for some professional help on top of that if you wish.
- Choosing trick
If you can’t make up your mind between two wedding dresses there is a simple trick you can apply to get it figured out. Take a coin and assign each dress to the sides of the coin, toss the coin and watch which side comes up. Based on your gut level of disappointment you can figure out which one you like most.
The most important thing to keep in mind is that this is your big occasion and what matters most is your heart’s desire and your comfort level. The gown that offers both is most likely the best choice you can have.
