About Me

wedding planning from a man's perspective

As a man, I know next to nothing about planning a wedding. My fiancée and I agreed that we would work together to plan our wedding. She provided me with a long list of things that I was to do independently, a list that she was going to take care of, and a list that we would work on together. The minute she handed me these three sheets of paper, I knew that we were in for a long six months. That was when I started talking to her about hiring someone to help us with the planning of our wedding. Visit our blog to find out how we worked together with a planner to make our day the best it could be.

3 Ways To Find The Perfect Wedding Dress

Getting married is supposed to be the best day of your life, and you are supposed to feel beautiful in what you wear when you are getting married. The problem lays in getting to that point. It can be hard to find the perfect wedding dress. There are various ways that you can do it. 

Family Heirlooms

One thing you can do is to see if there are family wedding dresses that you might want to wear. Your family may have the tradition of brides wearing a specific dress over the years. Even if you don't have that tradition, you may still want to wear something that another woman in your family has worn so that you can have that connection to them during your wedding. 


Another choice is to go with a custom dress. There are a variety of ways that you can go about getting a custom dress. One is that you can work with a designer and talk to them about the dress of your dreams and can get it made. Another is that you can hire a seamstress or tailor and have them make the dress for you. You will need to have a pattern or a particular design that you want, but you should be able to work with whoever is doing the dress for you to come up with what you want. The nice thing about going this route is that your dress should fit like a glove, and if you want to have something a little unconventional, you will be able to get exactly what it is that you want. 

Wedding Boutique

You can also try a wedding boutique. They will have a large selection of dresses by a whole lot of designers. They should also have them in a wide price range, so you can find the dress that you want in a price that you can afford. If the boutique doesn't have something that will work for you, they may have a catalog of other dresses that you can look at so that you can find one that you think will work for you. The boutique can also make sure that the dress is altered so that it fits you the way that it should, as well as supply you with all the accouterments that you need for your complete wedding look. 

If you are going to get married, you want to make sure that you are looking your absolute best. Contact a local seamstress or visit a local shop like The Steel Magnolia to get started.
