When you inform your family and friends about your upcoming wedding the immediate thing that follows is an informational bombing and an undeclared contest for who offers the most important wedding dresses advice.

Your mother and aunts will start foretelling what was it that they did and how did they decide upon the dress that was the most beautiful of its time, your cousins and friends will start showing you pictures of wonderful dresses that they found and thought that would suit you perfectly, but in the end the final decision has to be taken by you.
The best thing to do is to give everybody a few days to calm down and get over the excitement of your big event and then start talking with the closest ones about matters that require a second or a third opinion. Usually, these matters are tightly connected to the dress you will be wearing so, talking to the elderly as well as with the young ones is equally important.
You need to have your mother’s advice, that is mandatory, and that is why it is recommended you talk to her first. It is her opinion that will be the most honest and rational and the one that will weigh heaviest on the scale. It is perhaps important to ask her about the length of the dress as this is one of the first things you have to know about your future gown.
You can, then, move to the closest (girl) friends and ask for their opinion on how the most important piece of your wedding apparel should look. Their answers to this question can come in the form of models found while performing an online search or you can simply take them with you from store to store and have them say their thoughts on the dresses you try on.
And last, but of course, not least you will have to ask for the advice of an expert. It is perhaps the most professional advice you will receive and it has to be considered thoroughly. A wedding dresses designer is the one that will always know best what kind of dress will suit your body shape and what kind of model will put you most to an advantage. However, if you are not pleased with his/her recommendation you are free to buy any other dress that you find more suiting. After all, it is your wedding and all decisions belong to you and you alone.
