How to find your perfect dress. Finding that perfect dress can sometime be hard, so many designers, so many styles, where do you start? Here is a little guide to choosing your perfect dress.

STYLE The style of dress will depend on so many different factors that you will need to consider. What time of year are you getting married, what style your wedding is, where your wedding is. If you’re getting married in winter, you might consider a long sleeve or high neck dress? If your wedding style is beachy boho, maybe an extravagant beaded princess gown with a cathedral length veil isn't the right choice. But a wedding is all about expressing your own style and character. Its always nice to make your special days theme all tie in together. Do your research, troll Pinterest, bridal magazines, celebrity weddings and compile a collection of your favourite dresses. Look for the connecting theme, see what that all have similar and use those connecting factors to take with you while shopping for your perfect dress.

TRADITIONAL A traditional gown is usually a gorgeous full length dress with cathedral length trail and veil most often pure white or ivory. Traditional gowns are becoming less common in Queensland with modern and semi formal dresses taking over for 2018.

MODERN There are so many renditions of modern these days. But full lace dresses are very in right now, gone are the days of taffeta and satin, lace and beads are the modern of today. 2017 saw backless explode into every bridal store. But 2018 has bought the high neck dress back and big bows are also the new thing.


I WANT PEOPLE TO SEE THE DRESS

BUT FOCUS ON THE WOMAN - VERA WANG -

SEMI FORMAL Semi Formal dresses are becoming so popular. Floor length dresses with no train, cocktail length which is mid calf and tea length dresses which is just below the knee. Anything goes with these dresses but as long as they still have some degree of formality.

DRESS FOR YOUR BODY There is a wedding dress for all shapes and sizes so we have put some tips together to help you find the perfect dress. If you have short legs, avoid v-shaped bodices or drop waste lines as they will make your legs look even shorter. If your hips are wider than your shoulders, let them bring any gown into great shape but avoid fishtail designs. A v-shaped bodice with a full skirt is a great choice if you have no waist as it will help to create those voluptuous curves.

FITTINGS

SOME DRESS SHOPPING TIPS Don’t forget to start your dress shopping early. Some dresses can take up to 6 months to order in. You will then have to factor in some time to have alterations. But don’t shop too early, styles change and you may change your mind closer to your date. Set your budget, before you start looking, work out exactly what you want to spend. That way you can work to what you can spend instead of falling in love with a dress that you can’t afford. Don’t try on a dress that is out of your budget. It will only lead to bad things. Don’t forget to factor in the cost of alterations, your veil and accessories. When dress shopping, be sure to call ahead and book an appointment. Most bridal stores will require appointments to try on dresses. Try to shop in a week day because weekends are always packed and that dress you love is more than likely been tried on by someone else. Its worth taking time off work to attend the appointment during the week. Choose the dress your feel beautiful in, even if a dress you like ticks all the boxes but doesn't make you feel beautiful. Keep looking. Remember you want a dress you can move in, and that is comfortable. You have to wear this dress for 8 plus hours.

the dress

In most cases, wedding dresses require several fittings in order to get that perfect fit. When attending your fittings , ensure you take your shoes and wear your lingerie to keep your figure and height consistent while your alterations are been made and stay the same as on your wedding day. It’s also an idea to wear your hair similar to how you’re having it so you can see how it looks with your dress on.

PARKER Mia Solano’s Parker is a glamorous mirage, an optical spell, an exercise in trickery and seduction. In a flourish of paisley floral lace and eye catching crystal embellishments she is suddenly the only woman in the room. Her complexity runs deep with an underlay of shimmering grid lace and delicate tulle, and her appeal is that of both seduction and old world sophistication.

With fine shoulder straps adorned by a string of crystals her dĂŠcolletage is framed in a plunging v neck and low back fastened by a discreet zip so not to break the art deco illusion created by the patterned applique. In a departure from tradition, her train vanishes gradually in a raw edge rather than a lace trim and in this way she brings her old world charm into the modern day.


ELISHA Bringing to this classic a-line style an element of sophistication through the thoughtful and cheeky placement of appliquÊ flourishes is Elisha by Madi Lane. Her otherwise sheer bodice with V neckline and low back sits elegantly atop layers of simple tulle that collect in a minimal train. Perfect for dancing, walking barefoot on the beach or professing one’s love under the outstretched arms of a towering tree, Elisha combines the fun of a free-spirit and the allure of that classic bridal shape which flatters almost every figure.


EVITA An elemental yet unearthly being, EVITA channels old Hollywood as much as she does her natural environment. Glamorous and romantic, she is the sum of her most delicate parts: a slightly sheer high neckline, a masterfully moulded illusion bust line, an angularly open back, a row of enticing covered buttons and a luxuriant all-over corded lace. Beautifully finished with a lace train that extends beyond its silky underlay, EVITA is a gown that transcends trends and time.


EVETTE EVETTE always gets what she wants and wanting it all, is uncompromising in her commitment to style. More than just a gown, she can be worn in more than one way with a detachable and delicate floating sleeve. Without it, she is sleek and seductive but with it, she conveys an unparalleled romance. Her strategically sheer lace bodice transforms from a V neckline to a lowered scoop back and into an opaque crepe skirt that gently hugs the hip and collects at the feet in a chapel length train. The perfect gown from day to night, beachside ceremony to urban reception, EVETTE is an everywoman and stepping into her brings a future bride one step closer to that big beautiful day.

CASSIE & DALE Real weddIng


// I’m wearing the smile you gave me ♥ THE PROPSAL We started dating in May 2006 and were introduced to each other through Dale’s sister. After just over 11 years Dale surprised me with a weekend away to the Gold Coast staying at the Q1. He arranged a sunset cruise on a Gondola through the canals and popped the question. There was no bend on one knee as I am sure we would have tumbled over, but it was very romantic and he did a very good job of keeping it a surprise.


STATIONERY: Pretty Little Paper Co. JEWELLERY: Michael Hill Jeweller CEREMONY LOCATION: Sandstone Point Hotel CELEBRANT: Anna Staines The best celebrant EVER!!! Having Anna as our celebrant really did make our ceremony unforgettable. Her stress free but professional approach, beautiful nature and the fact that she knows how to crack a good joke, made our ceremony enjoyable for us as well as our guests. Our ceremony was unique to us and Anna guided us to write our own vows. We are so glad that we chose Anna to be part of our day.


FLOWERS: The Posy Co. Ordering our flowers through The Posy Co. was a breeze! I just chose the white flower package from their website and sent through some photos of the look we were trying to achieve. The end result was beautiful fresh flowers delivered to us on the day, stress free and at a reasonable price.


MAKEUP: Iana Maree Makeup Artistry Iana was a dream to work with, I loved mine and my bridesmaids make up for our wedding! She is very professional, easy going and her attention to detail to get your make up perfect for you is her strength. Iana recommended that we do a trial run, this made me feel at ease on the day and confident in the result. Once my hair was done and my dress was on I really did feel like a princess!

HAIR STYLING: Island Style Hairdressing Jilly did an excellent job with mine and my bridesmaid’s hair. I had the added difficulty of a cathedral two tier veil in my hair and very strong winds. That veil did not move the entire day, Jilly made it very secure and comfortable, as well as creating an up do that was great with and without the veil. Jilly was an absolute pleasure!

WEDDING DRESS: Elite Bridal & Formal ROBES: LeRose JEWELLERY: Prouds ACCOMMODATION: On The Beach Resort Woorim


CAKE: Cake It To The Limit Regan was a pleasure to work with, our wedding cake was not only delicious but looked the part too! Her attention to detail was perfect right down to the little flowers and greenery that she handmade.

STYLING: Fabulous Funktions We loved all our styling and props by Fabulous Funkions, every little detail was perfect and all tied in with our theme of elegant garden. Ellen is very talented and just knows what she is doing to make it all come together. It was also stress free for us as everything was done by Ellen and her team so we could just show up on the day.

DJ: G & M Event Group Our DJ did a fantastic job of setting the atmosphere for our reception and getting our guests on the dance floor. My new sister in law along with the DJ actually put together a re-mix of all our favourite dance songs, which was one of the highlights of our reception. G & M Event group were very helpful and professional, they had an excellent online system where you could listen and chose songs to be played on the night as well as feature songs.

DOUGHNUTS: Krispy Kreme


VENUE: Sandstone Point Hotel We could not have had a more perfect venue. The grounds are lovely and well kept, with amazing photo

locations and backdrops. We had our ceremony at the beautiful water’s edge location with stunning views of the passage and a beautiful big fig tree. Our reception was held in the Cellar, this is such a wow space our guest were amazed by the atmosphere and charm, and it really is a hidden gem. All event staff provided a smooth and enjoyable experience. We highly recommend Sandstone Point Hotel.


PHOTOGRAPHY: Jane Gilbey Photography Wow, wow, wow! We are absolutely in love with our photos! Jane and her second shooter Bec captured every moment. Our photos are so natural and re-tell the story of our day perfectly. I can literary flick through our album and remember and all the little details and touches that made our day so special. Jane is very professional and made us feel at ease in front of the camera with her calm and stress free nature. We would highly recommend her she is so talented and we will cherish our photos for a lifetime.
