Once you've done all of this, it is time to go out dress shopping - you may want to check out the appropriately named article (it's call Dress Shopping for all of those who are reading this after a glass of wine or two!) prior to doing so.
When you are out shopping for the ultimate themed gown (that both complements your shape and style of course!) you should not be too upset if you cannot find one that features all the things highlighted in your keyword list. A skilled seamstress should easily be able to add embellishments to any dress as well as adding straps, sleeves, trains as well as altering hemlines and necklines. The secret is to have tried on at least one dress in each style you have chosen, and at least one dress that incorporates each of the items in your list. As long as you have done this, you will know what you really want from your outfit and you can always plump to have one designed and made should you so choose.
If you have gleamed just one thing from this article it is to choose a dress that is most suitable for you, and not one that is simply compatible with your theme - doing the latter can only lead to regrets on the day or in years to come!
