Hello,my name is Gandhi Hurwitz, and here are some tips f r o m me about wedding attire. The guys have it easy. Pick up the tuxedos they rented months ago right before the wedding, put them on and then be sure to return all the pieces in decent condition right after the wedding. The women, however, don’t get so lucky. For the bride, her quest for the prefect wedding dress means hours poring over bridal magazines and the internet in search of the perfect look and months of agonizing dieting and humiliating dress fittings. Plus she needs all the accessories. Unfortunately, selecting wedding attire for both the groom and bride is something that cannot be avoided, unless they’re headed to Las Vegas or the county courthouse.
The wedding attire is one of the first items that needs to be addressed, especially if the wedding will take place at the height of the season. Only planning the wedding budget is above attire on the list of pre-wedding chores. Most brides are acutely aware of this task as they have often been thinking about it since they were little girls! Even so, brides often spend more than a month shopping and trying on gowns before the final decision is made.
After the dress is found, a bride still needs ample time for special ordering and dress fittings. Usually three separate fittings are required before the dress is adjusted to look absolutely perfect for the wedding day. As a result, it is advisable to allow extra time in case of unforeseen delays and emergencies.
The dress often costs a significant share of the wedding budget.. This is certainly not always the case, and there many options that will allow the bride to look beautiful without leaving her broke. The cost of the dress is definitely a subject to agree on f r o m the start. As the bride is traditionally center-stage and the focus of photographs, it is normal for her to feel she should look her best.
Before deciding on the budget allotment for the dress, decide on the type of wedding desired; elegant, informal, themed, seasonal, outdoors, etc… The attire chosen for the bride and groom will affect every other aspect of the planning including what others wear, the color scheme, decorations, invitations, flowers, venues, transportation, in short – everything!
Along with the dress, the bride will need to purchase a veil, headpiece, train, shoes, undergarments, stockings, garter, handbag, and jewelry. Many of these items can be ordered along with the dress, but others will have to be acquired over the coming months. The cost of these items should be factored into the wedding attire budget.
The men’s attire follows the lead of the bride’s. The groom needs to find a tuxedo rental outlet about six to twelve months before the date, get fitted, then latter pick up the tuxes for the day, which usually include everything they need, even the shoes!
