While you are sure to be the centre of attention, the perfect Quinceanera dress, hair, and makeup will help you shine on your special day. Here are some suggestions to help you pick the perfect dress.
01. Dress for Your Body Type
Try to choose a dress that will best fit your body and which you feel comfortable in. If you want to look slimmer, go for corsets, A-line designs, imperial cuts or dresses that have a plain material. If you would like a backless dress, go for something with either thin strap or no straps at all.
02. Dress Fabric and Colour
It used to be traditional for Quinceanera dresses to be pastel or white in colour and elaborately decorated. However, today many girls choose to combine fashion and tradition. The colour you choose is important as it will determine the colours of your invitations, decorations, flowers and cakes.
Overall, the fabric, colour and style is determined by your taste and personality. You can check the Quinceanera dresses at Peaches Boutique for a wide selection of choices.
03. Choosing the Dress
You should set a budget for your dress, and also decide whether you want to have just one dress, or several. Try to pick and order your dress about 9 months before the event to allow plenty of time for any alterations you may require. It is also a good idea to take your mother or someone you trust along with you for advice and an honest opinion. It’s never a good idea to go dress shopping with a group of people who will have different opinions and only serve to confuse and even upset you. Don’t be afraid to keep looking for the dress of your dreams until you find it and are satisfied with your choice. It is also a good idea to try on a variety of styles so you can get a really good idea of what you do and do not like.
04. Custom Made or Purchase
Buying an already-made dress is the big advantage of getting to search through a wide range of prices and styles. It can also help you save a lot of time and work and makes it easier to find accessories, often all in one place. If you cannot find what you are looking for but sort of know what you want, you could try finding someone to make your dress, but this can take time and could seriously eat into your budget.
If your dress needs some tailoring done, be sure to make appointments well in advance to discuss your ideas with the tailor and have the necessary work done. Remember that a tailor has experience with dresses and can advise you on what will work best. Be sure to find out how much alterations will cost, and how long it will take to complete the work, as well as what kind of shoes and accessories will go well with your Quinceanera dress or dresses.
Take note of these tips and rest assured that you will find the perfect dress for your Quinceanera.
