Northumberland Wedding Photographers view on the Wedding Dress

As a Northumberland wedding photographer I know how wedding photographs can be the most beautiful moments in a person’s life.

There are many important things to be remembered at the time of a wedding and the most important thing is the photographs capturing the wedding day itself and all the finer details...... especially the dress.   However it is the Bride who has the choice in the dress.

As a bride, one of the most exciting parts of planning a wedding is finding your wedding dress, but not any dress but 'The Wedding Dress!!

It’s a big decision and probably the biggest spend a bride will outlay on any dress. However its not for any occasion but probably one of the biggest days of their lives.

Some women have planned this day for a long, long time and will have dreamed of a certain style for a lifetime,  but some have no idea what they want. No matter what side of the coin you are on, make sure you go into dress hunting with an open mind and a budget in mind.

Hopefully it will be fun along the way!

Do your Wedding dress homework ..........Check out  in advance what you are looking for in the perfect wedding dress. Start by looking at dresses online and in bridal magazines to get a sense of the styles you're drawn to. Save the images to your phone or computer and form a short list of what you want in a wedding dress. When reviewing them are there certain designers you keep going back to? Are there certain styles you keep on choosing? Are there certain fabrics you are drawn to?

Cost.........Lots of factors go into your decision on the right dress, style, fit, practicality, comfort and of cause cost. This point causes the most drama and is probably the most important in this article. Like all wedding planning set a budget and try to stick to it!!

Style........Everyone has a different figure, so check out different styles. Pictures in magazines are good ideas, but nothing beats trying that style on your body shape and see how you feel in it. The same applies to materials and the various fabrics from lace to silks. After trying half a dozen you will get an idea of  what suits your body shape and what is best for you.

Organise........Arrange a girls day out to check out the dresses and opinions. Although you may want to start trying on dresses as soon as possible, it’s always best to do a little research before hand. Take along someone for a second opinion and advice. They may see an advantage or disadvantage you had not considered.

Comfort.......I would recommend comfort to be a major factor, but some dresses are worth the extra effort and weight involved in wearing them for 12 hours plus. I think you will agree that  our stunning bribe below looks magnificent in her wedding dress with a splendid train. The dress may be a little heavier than some but the resulting images are only enhanced by her choice of wedding dress. I loved photographing this beautiful bride and with out any question her choice of wedding dress enhanced every image.

As a wedding photographer I am aware its the photographer who captures the unforgettable moments of the wedding day and the resulting images in return gives so much pleasure and happiness to the couple when they look at them in many years to come. But these resulting images are a result of many things and not least the brides choice of dress. So whether you use Google to search for your special dress good luck dress hunting and enjoy the journey.
