How to Choose Your Wedding Gown

Many people emailed me, telling me that they are clueless of how to choose their wedding gowns.

When I first went to the Bridal Studio with my wife in February last year, we were clueless too.

For guys, it was really easy to choose. I just took 10 to 15 minutes to choose my suit and coat.

For ladies, my wife took 2 whole day to choose her gowns. The assistant who was also our studio coordinator took out at least 10 gowns for her to wear and she liked none of them. Gowns include wedding gown, evening gown plus tea dress and Chinese Kua.

Her sister accompanied her on one day and her friends accompanied her on day 2. Her friend, who had some experience of helping her other gal friends to choose, told my wife that she must have this "WOW" when she looked at herself in the mirror.

She must literally fall in love with the gown and like it so much that she does not want to take it down.

There were some occasions that certain gowns look terrific as an art piece but looked other when on some body.

The coordinator was very patient assisting my wife during her trying and brave constructive remarks such as how she can look better or how they can add on some more beads and laces to make the gown look more glamourous, especially during our photoshoot in June 06.

As for husband's feedback, I think it is also really important. We can honestly tell the ladies that they do not look good in some gowns. If they look fabulous in others, honestly praise them and tell them that they look super and gorgeous.

Husbands 'comments and comments are improtant for wives' reassurance and encouragement.

I have heard of situations that the husband finds it a waste of time to accompany the wife during the fitting. I'm not sure if you have heard of it or it had even occurred to you.

Get them to accompany you and the process of gown-fitting can be so much pleasant and enjoyable.

Another useful tip is before gown-fitting, please cut out any pictures or photos of gowns with the preferred designs. Bring them for gown-fitting and show the coordinator and state your requirement. This can make finding the right gown for you so much easier and faster.

One more thing – bring your wedding shoes along to see if they really match your gowns.
