A bride’s dress is probably the single most important one she’ll ever wear, and her entire dream wedding day *probably* revolves all around it. Hence, choosing the outfit you’ll marry in is no easy task.

Just like picking a look for Saturday night drinks, there’s a lot to consider – colour, silhouette, mobility, whether a train’s just a tad ‘too much’. But unlike the events of your typical night out, looking devastatingly good is just as important as being completely comfortable, since you’re going to be on your feet for a long time and probably gazed at from every angle – you and your dress being quite the focal point on the big day.
