Find a Dress That Suits Your Personality
Indian wedding dresses can be incredibly varied so you will have plenty of different styles to choose from. This means that you should be able to find a dress that suits your personality and represents you a little. Perhaps you want a pretty and feminine dress or something a little more classic and elegant.
We spoke to Sonas Haute Couture who said,
“Every bride has a different personality and her dress can encompass her traits. It’s great when a bride can find a dress that just makes sense. Of course, it will look different from anything else you wear, but it will look right because it suits her personality as well as her body.”

Choose Your Companions Carefully
When it’s time to start trying on wedding dresses, you will probably find that there are lots of different family members and friends who want to be involved in the process. While you may want your closest friends and family with you, it is okay to say no to others.
Having too many people with you can make things a little confusing when you are trying to find a dress you love. Of course, you want to get the opinion of those you love, getting opinions from everyone you know can make it difficult for you to keep a clear head. Remember, as long as you love the dress, it doesn’t matter if you’re aunt or new mother-in-law isn’t so keen!
Try Everything On Together
With Indian wedding dresses, there are often lots of different pieces that all come together to create one beautiful outfit. Make sure to try all of these pieces together to make sure they all work together.
If you’re purchasing pieces separately, you’ll want to make sure the colours match well, so if you already have your duppata, for example, make sure to take it with you when you choose your dress.
Do Your Hair and Makeup Before Trying Dresses On
When you wear your wedding dress on your big day, you are sure to look amazing, but when you are trying on your dress before you buy it, it can feel a little strange. It can be hard to get an idea of how you actually look in the dress when you’re trying it on.
However, if you have your hair and makeup done before you try on the dress, this is a great way of seeing how you could actually look on your wedding day.
Choosing your wedding dress should be an exciting and happy experience. By following these tips, you should be able to find a dress that is perfect for you.
