Shopping with mom can be an amazing experience – but it can also add to the stress, especially when it is your wedding dress that you are searching for. How to make this easy and productive for both of you? How to involve your mom in the wedding gown shopping process? We have some tips for you – read on and learn more about this.

• Be very sensitive and very honest. Your mom only wants to help, and even though her ideas may not always coordinate with yours, she isn’t doing this on purpose. Be honest with her, tell her when you don’t like something, but also make sure you don’t hurt her feelings. You wouldn’t like this to be done to you, would you?

• Be constructive when giving feedback. Don’t just toss “no” in the air and leave it like that. Tell your mom what you like and don’t like about her ideas. This way, she will adjust to your wedding dress dreams and she will be able to help you more with this important decision.

• Do listen to her too. Yes, this is your Big Day and yes, you kind of have an idea of what your dress should look like. But, as it happens, a lot of brides find the one when they least expect it – and it looks like nothing they imagined. Try on a few of your mom’s suggestions – you may have a huge surprise.

Your wedding day should be filled with light, happiness, and truly candid memories. And while choosing the perfect dress, the prettiest makeup and the most exquisitely stylish accessories are all important steps to making yourself feel like a royalty, it is also important to feel great on the inside as well.

How to do it? Here are some wonderful tips to help with this.

• No, you don’t want to look as if you went through a famine before the wedding day. Shiny, healthy and happy will always beat skinny – so make sure you feed your body with nutritious foods. Eat lots of fruit and veggies, stay away from saturated fat, and be sure you eat complex carbs too. Also, water can go a long way when it comes to your body’s health, so be sure you get enough of that too.

• Find a type of exercise you like. For some, this may be running. For others, it’s all about weight lifting at the gym. And for others, it may mean a sweaty workout with their loved ones. Do what works for you and you will most likely love it.

• It takes about 4 weeks for your mind to “register” the new life regimen as a routine – so hang on for one month and see what happens. Chances are your new lifestyle will stick to you!

• Last, but not least, remember that love is the best beauty enhancer. When we’re in love, our bodies release happiness hormones – and believe us, these tiny chemicals will make you shine with gorgeousness on your Big Day!

Your wedding dress should complement you from every single point of view. It should complement your style, your personality, your wedding – but more than anything, it should embrace your body in a stunningly harmonious way.

How to choose a wedding dress based on your silhouette? We have some tips for you – so read on, inspire yourself and then come find the perfect wedding gown for yourself!

• Are you a pear-shaped silhouette? If so, you will need to draw the attention away from the lower area of your body – and A-line skirts do this marvelously. Focus on an intricate bodice and pretty detail-work in the upper area of your body and you will look absolutely breath-taking.

• If your body is apple-shaped, you should draw the attention away from the midsection part of it. Instead, focus on the upper area – you can even wear a simple, elegant skirt and an intricate corset to create the ideal balance between your upper and lower body.

• Brides with rectangular-shaped silhouettes should focus on creating volume in both the upper and the lower area. A tulle skirt with a very detailed bodice, ball gowns, dresses with ruching on the bodice – they are all amazing choices for those of you who want to accentuate your bodies and create superb, womanly curves.

• As for hourglass-shaped ladies, they will be more than happy in pretty much every type of wedding dress there is. However, we advise on emphasizing the middle area to add a bit of drama to your look. For something more unconventional, you could even wear a long skirt or a pair of flared pants and a crop top in the upper area!

Looking for that one dress, the one you will feel at home in? Come visit Amanda Lina’s Sposa Boutique and allow us to help you find the perfect wedding gown for you. Come visit us and you will never regret it!

Getting married during the fall season may be seen as less popular than having a summer wedding – but the absolute truth is that fall weddings can be absolutely stunning. How to choose a dress that will transform you into the princess of your own fall wedding, though? We have some wonderful ideas for you – so read on and find your inspiration.

• A cobweb lace dress. As striking as it may be, fall is more than suitable for romantic textures and designs. This is precisely why a dress made with cobweb lace and veil can be more than suitable for the season outside. Delicate, beautiful and ethereal, this kind of dress will steal all the looks and it will surely make you feel drop-dead-gorgeous!

• An off-the-shoulder dress. These designs have been more than popular in the past year, so why would the end of the year make any exception from the rule? A long sleeved, delicately-designed wedding gown with an off-the-shoulder feature can be breath-taking on a fall bride!

• A late-fall wedding dress. Planning a wedding in late November? Search for a dress that impersonates the twisting, but almost-magic weather of this time of the year! A simple A-line that shows off just a little bit of leg through sheer fabric and which shows off a stunning snowflake-inspired broidery on the upper part – this is what pure magic looks like!

• A glamorous 20s dress. For a vintage bride in love with the high style and opulence of the Roaring Twenties, a wedding gown torn from that era will be more than perfect. Go for sparkly white, for the straight designs of the Great Gatsby years and for the feathery hair accessories to create a look that will wow everyone as soon as they see you!

Looking for a fantastic dress? Come visit Amanda Lina’s Sposa Boutique, where we have gathered some of the world’s best and most beautiful designer wedding gowns! You will not regret having visited us!

As a bride, you will want to choose the most stunning wedding gown of all – but you should also be aware that most of the times, wedding dresses need to be altered to fit the bride 100%.

How to find a wonderful seamstress for your wedding gown? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

• First of all, talk to the boutique sales assistant and see if they can provide you with a seamstress. Many bridal boutiques work with in-house seamstresses – and if they don’t, most of them can at least recommend you someone they have worked with before.

• If neither of the aforementioned options work, see if your friends or relatives can help you. Ask those who have recently gotten married and see if they cannot recommend you a great seamstress for your wedding gown.

• Remember, it is very important that you work with a seamstress who has experience in dealing with the intricate and delicate design of a wedding dress. Otherwise, you may not get the results you are aiming for – and even worse, you could completely ruin your gown.

• If a seamstress tells you something cannot be done, try to get another opinion as well. As mentioned before, altering wedding gowns is an intricate task – so your seamstress may either not have the time to do it, or she may not be experienced enough to successfully run this task.

Of course, as the bride, you will want to be radiant, beautiful and truly stunning at your wedding – after all, your big day is such a huge, life-changing moment! How do you do that? How do you ensure your natural beauty shines through and amazes everyone at your wedding?

We have gathered some of the most important tips to remember if you want to look and feel beautiful on your big day. Read on and find out more.

• First and foremost, coordinate your bridal appearance with your wedding. It doesn’t matter what theme you have chosen for the big day – but it does matter that you carefully coordinate your look with your theme. You don’t have to go over the top with this – just make sure your hair, makeup and overall style “fit” within the picture created by your wedding décor, location, and venue.

• Furthermore, remember that it is very important to hire a professional hairstylist and a makeup artist. They will give you their expert advice on how to pull off styles that really suit you from all points of view, and they will also be able to flawlessly execute these styles too.

• Keep in mind: you should also schedule trial appointments with both your hairstylist and your makeup artist! Be sure you do this well in advance, so that you have plenty of time to incorporate the changes they suggest – such as leaving the hair to grow out, applying professional skin treatments, and so on. Ideally, you should have your beauty trials with at least one year before the wedding!

Amanda Lina’s Sposa Boutique has gathered a stunning collection of designer wedding gowns – so if you’re still looking for the one, you should definitely come and see what we offer. We guarantee you will love it here!

As a bride-to-be, you want nothing less than sheer perfection for your bridal look – and it’s absolutely natural to see things this way. What are some of the most popular bridal styles these days, though? Even more, how to create the perfect look for your wedding day?

We have some tips for you – so read on, find out more, and learn more about looking gorgeous on the Big Day:

• Natural/country. Country-chic weddings are still very much en vogue, so you might want to plan yours along the same theme as well. To coordinate your look to that of your wedding décor, stick to a simple dress and keep your hair in a very natural, feminine hairstyle – such as a long braid with flowers incorporated in it.

• Boho chic. Somewhere in between the hippy and the bohemian styles, boho chic has grown more than popular too. You have all the reasons to love it – unique, delicate and genuinely beautiful, this style can be more than suitable for a wide range of locations, brides and even seasons. The perfect accessory for a hippy-inspired wedding gown? A stunning crown made with gorgeous blooms!

• Glamorous rustic. You may think “glam” and “rustic” don’t go well together – but with attention to detail, they can make for the best combination ever. A simple dress with a big hairstyle and a retro makeup will look absolutely flawless on a bride who’s in love with both barn weddings and The Great Gatsby. Add a headband made with precious gemstones to the mix and you will feel as if you have just walked out of the 1920s!

Still looking for the perfect wedding gown? The one that will suit you from every single point of view? Come visit Amanda Lina’s Sposa Boutique and take a look at what we offer – you will love it here!

Choosing the perfect dress is very important for you as a bride-to-be – but making sure everything is absolutely flawless about it is also crucial for you as well. Of course, having the dress fit to your body is one of the absolute “musts” you will have to handle before the Big Day – but what are some of the things you should expect from your final wedding dress fitting? Read on and find out more.

• You should bring the perfect undergarments. By this time, you should have decided on what type of undergarments you need to wear on your wedding day – and you should also bring them with you, to make sure your seamstress makes accurate adjustments to your dress. Remember, every type of dress will “require” a specific type of undergarments, so be sure yours are perfectly fit for your gown’s design and cut.

• You should be prepared to ask questions and learn. Unfortunately, your seamstress will not be with you on your wedding day – so you and your Maid of Honor (or whoever it is that’s helping you put on the dress on your Big Day) should pay close attention to everything the seamstress does and say. Learn how to put the gown on, learn how to bustle it and ask any questions you might have.

• You should be 100% certain the dress is perfectly fit – both in terms of tightness and in terms of length. Your wedding gown should be tight enough to embrace your body beautifully, but it should also allow you to move around, dance and…breathe. If you are wearing a strapless dress, be extra-careful with the upper part fitting. The last thing you want is to have to constantly pull up your dress during the wedding!

Amanda Lina’s Sposa Boutique can help you find a gorgeous dress that makes you look and feel like a true VIP. Come visit our boutique, take a look at the stunning designer wedding gowns we have in store, and we guarantee you will find the one!
