How To Use A Wedding Dress Size Chart

Wedding Dress Size Charts

Wedding dress sizes are normally different from your regular dress sizes.  Please take measurements and refer to the size charts to determine your appropriate gown size to order. Keep in mind that for a perfect fit, most gowns require some alterations.  We do not recommend to size up your wedding gown for there is no guarantee of adequate inseams. Typically, if you need to have it altered again, you'll be charged additional fees. Sizing down one size is usually not a problem. We recommend consulting a professional Orange County wedding dress seamstress to determine if any alterations or adjustments are required.

Standard Sizes

A difference of +/- 1/2" is acceptable for body and length measurements.

Measuring Tips

For accuracy, please wear the same heel height and similar undergarments (bra & slip) as the day of the wedding while taking measurements.  

Make sure to use a measuring tape when taking measurements.  We recommend having someone else help you with the measurements.  When measuring, pull the tape snug, but not too tight, and keep the tape parallel to the floor.  

  1. Bust:     Run the tape across fullest part of your breast and around under arms and back.  This is not your bra size!  Be sure to wear the bra with similar padding as the day of wedding.
  2. Waist:    Bring the tape around the smallest part of your waist, typically just an inch or so above your naval.
  3. Hips:     Run the tape around the widest part of your hips.
  4. Hollow to Waist (A to B):  Measure from your hollow at the base of the neck down to your waistline.
  5. Waist to Hem (B to C):     Measure from your waistline down to your desired hem.  Be sure to wear the same heel height as the day of wedding.

Outdoor Weddings

Outdoor Weddings are possibly the very favorite venue to offer to any bride and groom... just the wedding couple, the celebrant and one witness, with the ceremony performed at the top of a mountain or the at water’s edge... this just might be the perfect dream come true. Or, this ceremony idea was a dream that the bride and groom had, but family obligations have now created a much larger function than the wedding couple had in mind. Call an experienced Orange County wedding planner to accommodate any wedding/reception guest list. Certain Southern California ceremony locations are available from mid spring to late fall, weather permitting. Beachfront ceremonies are performed year round.

An experienced Orange County wedding planner can plan your beautiful outdoor wedding in Orange County. Beach-front ceremonies can be organized by most wedding coordinators at the water’s edge, keeping the entire event extremely intimate. Mother Nature quietly offers her flawless and perfect gift to the wedding couple... a backdrop of silver, granite boulders with sparkling, sapphire skies blending into crystal, blue waters.

The entire wedding planning staff will impeccably custom design your outdoor wedding and attend to all the special details imaginable... even down to locking in on that perfect tee off time for the groom and groomsmen at one of Orange County's incredible golf courses, while the bride and bridesmaids relax before the wedding on a private yacht or boat cruise, including a completely catered luncheon.

For your outdoor ceremony a professional wedding planner sees to every detail. A ceremony at one of the wedding venues in Orange County officiated by non-denominational celebrants (wedding officiates or ministers) can take place right on an Orange County beach, perhaps at sunset, or, in a panoramic, ocean view, cathedral-beamed ceiling living room of a beach front property. In winter, wedding planners specialize in ceremonies directly in front of a river-rock fireplace, located in a living room with spectacular view and impeccable amenities.

A beautiful lakeside wedding in Mission Viejo is the wedding planner's specialty. Lakeside receptions coordinated by a professional wedding planner, whether small and intimate, or large and luxurious, are also one of our most significantly dramatic functions that a wedding coordinator can provide, orchestrating any detail that one can think of... beaches, estates or homes with decks and lawns, white-carpeted condominiums; private facilities reserved just for your private party... all of the above ,with stunning Orange County views, are available year-round, depending upon availability. If the wedding couple’s budget and schedule allow, a wedding planner will even plan a personal itinerary of a day-long site tour to inspect and find the perfect accommodations, as well as the ultimate ceremony and reception site... keeping in mind that dancing and dining under the Southern California stars is the ultimate!

An outdoor wedding ceremony is a dream come true.The following outdoor ceremonies include the minister, music, your coordinator, and chapel facility as a weather back-up. Depending on the package chosen, 20 minutes of coordination is provided before event and anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, the day of event.

You may have ample of choices in front of you when you are all set to pick up your wedding reception music. But, you have to narrow down your search, as you may have to finalize everything within an hour or two. So, limit your search within a few genres of your choice. Consult with your partner. It may strengthen your bonding more. Once the genres are set, go for the most popular numbers which your guests will enjoy, even if they do not pay close attention to what is being played.

Be traditional

The traditional way of adding music to a wedding party is to play music CDs and cassettes. No matter, what new modes of entertainments may come about, music CDs will never lose out their charm. While selecting wedding reception music, you can go movie-wise. The evergreen movies and their songs will never fail to entertain the guests.

Go for trends

DJ music is the trend of today. Even in wedding reception music, you can call for a DJ performance, provided you have enough time in advance to ensure a proper arrangement. In that case, you must make sure that you can provide ample of space to the guests to dance freely. If you are planning to fetch in a DJ performance, you have to set the paraphernalia too. A traditional wedding ceremony will not be smart enough to carry a DJ performance. So, before picking up your wedding reception music, you must decide on the attitude of your party. You must consider the nature of the guests coming. If the invitees consist primarily of youngsters, you can happily think of a DJ party.

Live band

Live performances by music bands are also setting trends in wedding reception music. If it is something that you are aiming at, you must take care of the space. The performance being engaging you must allot a specific time for the performance. Otherwise, there will be no use of such a performance. But which band to go for? In your search, you must concentrate on the popular and much loved contemporary bands.

Wedding Songs

Music is an inseparable part of any celebration. Some marriage rituals make music ceremony a mandatory ritual. But for the rest, it is not so. Choosing wedding reception music is all left to your own will. You may feel it unnecessary if you are thinking of a chaotic and traditional family gathering. But, any social event can turn out to be like that. So what’s special about the wedding reception? Make it an unforgettable one, sewing with melody.
