1. START EARLY
While this may seem to you an irrelevant suggestion at first, but it will end up playing a big role in helping you strike at the big final decision. Start early in the day.

2. NO BIG AUDIENCE
Gulp – no pressure, right?

5. KEEP WEATHER AND YOUR VENUE IN MIND
Most fabrics are suitable year-round, but some, like linen and organdy, are more appropriate for warm weather, while velvet and brocade are best left for winters. Also, the venue needs to be kept in mind. If you are going to have an outdoor wedding, then an extensively embroidered and embellished wedding dress should not be your preference.
6. BLEND IN HIS CHOICES AS WELL
It’s quite obvious that you would like to see the same glitter in his eyes on seeing you while entering the hall emanating elegance all around. Don’t forget to take his favorite colors and styles in consideration. Fair enough?
