6 Tips for Choosing Your Perfect Wedding Dresses

When it comes to choosing your gown there are so many factors to include and consider, especially since it’s your day to be the centre of attention and to really feel special. So make sure you don’t rush the decision and choose the perfect dress based around our 6 tips below:
Here Comes The Bride


1. Start the hunt early.
To ensure you find the perfect one, always leave plenty of time to do so. At Tulle and Chantilly we often see brides purchase under pressure and with little time to spare. Although we do accept rushed orders we don’t encourage them for the brides sake and sanity. Not only is it a stressful time, but you may also be leaving it too late to get any last minute alterations done. So remember 6-9 months will be the perfect amount of time to leave.

2. Budgeting
Before the search begins make sure you have your budget ready to avoid any disappointment. The last thing you want to do is stumble upon the perfect dress that is financially out of reach, plus it will help you organise how much money you have left to spend on other areas of the wedding.

3. Do Your Research
That perfect wedding dress needs be compared and picked out after much consideration, not only for if the dress, is in budget, that it suits your figure and shape or that it suits the location and season of your wedding, but how your wish to purchase it and where you will purchase it from. Do your homework on fabrics, dress make-up and pricing.

4. Body Shapes & Styles
Tulle & Chantilly have two kinds of customers: ones who know exactly what style they want and others who have no idea about where to start. No matter which bride you are body shape and style will still come into the equation. Make sure you check out our reference page body shape page, which gives you an insight into what you need to be looking at based on your figure. We also offer a free customised dress service to ensure all styles will fit the bride perfectly.
Choose Right Wedding Dress Style According to Body Shape


While most brides choose white as their dress color, some brides may think it’s not flattering enough, depending on your skin tone. So why not break with tradition and try a try that either have accents of colour or are a completely different colour.  Also consider the theme and season of your wedding to help you choose, not to mention your skin tone.

  1. It was nice that you suggested making sure that your budget is ready to avoid disappointments when you’re searching for a wedding dress. What I’m actually interested in is to find a dress for my engagement party. It’s important for me to find a hand-painted dress that I can afford to make sure that I won’t spend time in checking out dressed that I can’t afford at all. Thanks!

  2. I really liked it when you said that although white is usually the normal color of the wedding dress, the person needs to consider their skin tone as well. My sister is a little too pale, so I think something different from white will suit her better. It’s better if she decides. After all, she already gave me the role of handling the rest of her wedding, like hiring a planner. She needs to decide on the ones she will wear.

  3. Yes..You are right..Its a once lifetime moment for every bride.So to choose their wedding dresses is the most difficult task to steal the attention on the occasion.
