5 golden tips to find the wedding gown of your dream

Your wedding day is quite a special day. You should feel good about yourself on the inside and the outside.

Start Early: The search for the dream wedding dress should start about 10 - 12 months prior to your wedding day, especially if you wish to plan your wedding on a small budget. Designer gowns typically take about six to nine months for craftsmanship, delivery and further alterations if you wish to customize to size. Customization to design by adding embellishments or change of style may take longer depending on each store, and some don't accept express orders, so plan accordingly. However, at Peony House express order for at least 2 months prior to the wedding date is available! Estimate a clear budget: Brides are often frustrated when they find their dream wedding gown but don’t have sufficient funds for it. It’s best to browse for the average price and prepare monetarily ahead of time so you’ll be ready to say yes to the dream dress the day you found it. When you talk to the consultants at Peony House, they could work out a customized budget plan for your wedding gown and choose alternative options so you can purchase your dream dress! Narrow down your styles using a private Pinterest mood board. By identifying the style of your wedding day, you could then proceed on browsing different styles of wedding dresses (and even decoration styles). By doing this, you’ll get yourself familiarised with common wedding dress silhouettes such as ball-gown, empire, A-line, sheath, mermaid and goldfish. A quick guide in choosing wedding dress silhouettes suitable for your body shape is demonstrated in the table below. Limit your dress shopping advisor and schedule your appointment on weekdays. Usually bridal stores would be packed with appointments during weekends, so it might be a better idea to book for an off-peak time during weekdays to get the best service from the staff. Bringing a maximum of 5 people to your appointments will decrease the chance of you being confused by too many different opinions. Keep an open mind and choose the dress that feels right for you. Some dresses may look average on the rack and mannequins but it will become absolutely gorgeous on the right body shape. Here at Peony House, our consultants are experts in guiding you to narrow down and find the perfect dress for your body shape #WeddingTips #PeonyHouse #Weddingservices

Things to Consider When Choosing Your Wedding Dress

What you like is the most important of all Despite different wedding trends and opinions from friends and family, your style and preferences is what matters most. In the end, it is your special day that you’ll remember for the rest of your life. Imagine the dress you’d like and talk to your consultants, show them photos, mood boards or even drawings. At Peony House, all dresses can be customized and our friendly consultant can guide you to designing the dress of your dream! Fabric Materials Some brides-to-be may overlook this factor being influenced by the glamorous appearance of the gowns they have tried on. However, you must keep in mind that you will have a good chance of wearing the dress for 10 hours straight and possibly be passing this dress to your daughter. Therefore, the material of the dress should be high-quality, long lasting and comfortable enough for you to wear for the whole ceremony. All of the dresses displayed in Peony House have materials originating from France, Italy and Korea. Ones with larger size are incorporated with multiple layers to maintain volume and comfort for the brides. Materials, if properly chosen and designed like those in Peony House, can maintain the upper dress shape and compliment your body type as well. Crystal Quality Unless you are going for a simple and vintage style, most wedding dresses are embellished with hundreds of crystals, pearls and glitters. It’s crucial to check for the quality of the crystals and embellishment techniques as the last thing you want is having all of them fall out right on your wedding day. Possessing the most experienced craftsmen with steadiest techniques, along with rigorous selection of quality crystals from Dubai, it is most certain that the quality of Peony House’s dress is incompatible. Silhouettes The ideal bridal dress’ shape is critical based on the mood of the wedding, the decoration ideas, the venue arrangements, wedding timeline and your body shape. If you have a pear-shaped body type, a voluminous ball gown would flatter your body most and will shine best in a spacious venue. However, it won’t be very convenient when you’re doing your first dance or if you’re celebrating in a public garden. Talking to Peony House’s consultants who have expert knowledge in fashion would help you choose your dress silhouette. A quick guide for you to refer to is shown in the table below.

Congratulations! So you have decided to get married and got your marriage license ready! Your married friends are listing an endless list of things you need to prepare and you have no idea where to start? Here’s the step-by-step instruction on how you can plan a wedding! Set a wedding budget It might be the best to first sit down with people who have previously planned their wedding or with service providers to work out what kind out budget you need to save up for your wedding. This step is crucial as no one would want to fall in love with a venue or bridal gown then realise it is out of your reach. The most convenient way is coming to one-stop shops like Peony House so consultants can work out your wedding plan and budget with you. Get Inspired The most exciting step is to gather ideas and inspiration for your wedding. Are you going for a luxurious and high-profile vibe? Or are you going for a rustic and vintage vibe? It’s a good idea to utilise artistic social media channels like Pinterest or Instagram to have a look at the latest trend and create a private mood board consisting of decoration style, wedding colours, invitation cards, wedding cakes and more. Identify your guest list and talk to your venue Before picking a venue to set your date, it is best to write down a guest list and estimate the size of the crowd. Simultaneously, select the bridesmaids and groomsmen, and those who will accompany you on your special day. When you have an estimated budget, headcounts, and several potential dates in mind, you are ready to start searching for a venue. For further help with finding the most suitable venue, Peony House is in collaboration with most receptions around Melbourne and you can possibly work out a discount when you come to us. Finalise the guest list and start sending save the dates When the date has set in place, it’s time to finalize the guestlist considering the venue's capacity and who you would like to invite. Make sure save-the-dates are sent as early as possible so that your friends and family can plan accordingly. These should be sent away at least 8 - 12 months in advance for distant weddings, and at least 4 months for local ones. Time to find your perfect wedding dress! On average, a bride-to-be would start her search for the wedding dress at least 9 to 12 months prior to the wedding date. Designer gowns typically take around at least 6 months for craftsmanship, delivery and further alterations if you wish to customize to size. Don’t feel distressed if you’re currently in a hurry. You can come to Peony House and talk to our consultant to work out an express order (that takes at least 2 months) or consider buying off-the-rack! Don’t forget the photographer and event decorators! You spent a huge amount on this special day and surely you would want to capture the most beautiful and holy moments of the day. Make sure you talk to your decorator and photographer so they can fully understand the idea and style you are going for! It’s financially wiser to spend a bit more into a professional photographer who is also planning your wedding rather than saving and spending less on someone whose photos are not usable. The best idea is coming to a one-stop shop like Peony House to synchronize your idea amongst different services to get the best result. Buy your wedding bands Make sure you start your search and purchase your wedding bands a few months prior to your wedding day. It’s recommended that you pick a wedding band that is comfortable and matches your engagement ring as you’ll be wearing it for the rest of your life. Confirm to your vendors and Get Married! During the days leading up to your wedding day, make sure you confirm your wedding details with all the vendors relating to your wedding as they have got all the information and payment they need. Wedding planners from one-stop shops are super helpful regarding checking in with all vendors and getting everything in the checklist done so you can enjoy your big day!
