Latest Bridal Wear For Nigerian Brides
Here are some tips to help you pick the right dress for your wedding:
- Try to have a clear picture of what you want and stick to it. Often, confused brides find themselves being pressurized towards dresses they don’t even like in the first place. Listen to your heart, not your friends.
- Mentally go through the wedding; is it a morning or evening event, will you be kneeling, will you need to dance? etc. Make sure you and your dress are prepared for every situation. Comfort is key for a successful event.
- When trying on a dress, wear the same undergarments or any traditional accessories that you are planning to wear. This will help you avoid any embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions.
- Once you’ve picked the right dress, schedule your fittings as close to the wedding as possible for a perfect fit.
