Ordering a standard sized dress
Wearing a standard sized dress to a wedding as a guest is one thing, but when it’s your wedding day you want to ensure that your dress fits your body perfectly. Every woman has a different body size and shape; even two sisters often have completely different body shapes, which is why choosing a dress that can be altered to fit your bespoke shape and size is so important. After all, you only get married once, so it’s vital to ensure that your wedding dress fits your body like a perfectly sized glove.
Picking bridesmaid dresses that are too revealing
There is a time and a place for revealing dresses, and for the most part, a wedding isn’t one of them. Picking bridesmaids dresses that show a little skin and have a sexy yet elegant vibe to them is one thing, choosing dresses that flaunt everything your bridesmaids have is quite another. Aim to pick dresses that are stylish, sophisticated, and look good on a range of body sizes and shapes.
Not considering the venue
When shopping for your dress, the groom’s and groomsmen’s’ suits, and your bridesmaid’s dresses don’t make the mistake of not taking the venue into account. Say, for example, you are having a beach wedding; the styles of your dress, your bridesmaids’ dresses, and your groom’s and groomsmen’s suits can be more casual compared to if you are having a wedding in a church. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that when it comes to the groom’s and groomsmen’s suits, the venue doesn’t matter, because it does. Just like there is a wide range of bridal dresses and bridesmaids dresses, there is a wide range of suit styles to choose from. To have a browse of all of the most popular suit styles, click here.

Going overboard with accessories
Be wary of choosing too many accessories for yourself, your bridesmaids, the groom, and the groomsmen. The fact is that you want your dress, the bridesmaid’s dresses, and the suits worn by the groom and groomsmen to make a statement, which is why overloading these outfits with accessories is a bad idea. Instead, opt for a few simple accessories; for yourself and the bridesmaids, a necklace, bracelet, and earrings, along with a flower posy is ideal. For the groom and groomsmen, a watch and a buttonhole flower are all it takes.
