When you’re picking out your wedding dress, the last thing you naturally think about is making sure it will look good with the napkins. Most brides consider the wedding dress to be the centerpiece of the wedding, so planning everything else around it can seem like the easiest choice. However, after you’ve bought and paid for your wedding, chances are you won’t take it into consideration your dress every time you buy a wedding supply. Fortunately, with some advanced planning, you can make sure your wedding dress doesn’t clash with anything else at your wedding without staying up all night worried about it.
The lighting that is used in your wedding venue is very important when trying to make your wedding dress look amazing. The lighting in the dress shop was setup to show off your dress in the best possible way, so you need to make sure there is proper lighting at your venue so it looks just as good. Worst case scenario is that you need to hire a lighting company to come into the venue and add some extra temporary lighting, but that usually doesn’t need to happen. Most wedding venues can simply turn the lights up or turn on accent lighting that will let your wedding dress shine.
The activities you have at your wedding can either make or break your wedding dress’s look, so you need to consider them carefully. The primary concern is how you look at your ceremony and on the dance floor, but other factors come into play as well. For instance, if your guests are all lighting really big wedding sparklers for your grand exit, you’ll want to choose a neutral color such as gold so it doesn’t make your dress look a strange color. If you’re doing a wedding march, you’ll want to make sure the flashing lights don’t affect the way your wedding dress looks either.
Surprisingly enough, your wedding favors can make a difference with how your wedding dress looks. If you give your guests things like candle holders, they may light them during your reception and change the lighting. If you hand out bubbles, they may land on delicate fabrics and have a negative effect. Make sure you weigh all the pros and cons about your wedding favors before you make a purchase.
As you can see, there are many ways your wedding dress can be affected by other elements of your celebration. With some careful planning and some good decision making, you can ensure that your wedding dress looks as great at your wedding as it did on the first day that you tried it on.
