Deep in the southern county of Surrey is the village of Cobham. In this lovely countryside is situated the Hilton Hotel. The name Hilton inspires luxury but this hotel also makes for a great wedding venue. They are licensed for civil weddings in two of their main function rooms which hold up to 300 guests. Set within 27 acres of woodlands, the grounds of the Hilton Hotel Cobham create a wonderful backdrop for fabulous photos. The interiors are elegantly decorated even the floors have a fantastic woodland themed pattern.

To be prepared or when you buy your wedding dress it is important that you have a note of your sizes. I would recommend going to a tailor as they will give you the most accurate measurements, which will therefore end up with the most well-fitted dress. However if you are like most of the general population and don’t have access to a tailor all you need is a fabric tape measure and a trusted friend or family member.

First thing to do is remember you will not be wearing clothes under your dress so try and make sure you have on good underwear or indeed the underwear you are planning to wear on the day. You will need to measure the Bust, Waist, Hips, Hollow to Hem and if you are wearing a dress with sleeves the Arm Girth and Inside Sleeve. Remember to have a pen and piece of paper to hand in order to keep track.

Bust- Your bust is not your bra size so don’t automatically go on what the measurement is in your bra.  Take the tape around your back and bring it across the fullest part of your bust which is across your nipples. Arms should ideally be down at your sides as they would be when wearing the dress.

Waist- Measure the smallest part of your waist, normally an inch or so above your belly button. Take the tape all the way around to measure. Remember try not to suck in as you will want to be able to breathe on your wedding day.

Hips- The widest part of your lower body, measure across the hipbone. Take the tape all the way around about 7 inches below the waistline.

Hollow to Hem-  Take the tape and begin at the hollow of your neck and measure down to where you want the dress to end. And if you want a fuller skirt, measure out at an angle to allow for the full dress. If you can wear the heels you will wear with your wedding dress if not wear one’s of the same height.

The next two measurements are only required if you are planning on wearing a dress with sleeves;

Arm Girth- Measure around the largest part of your upper arm.

Inside Sleeve- Begin the measuring tape from your armpit along you straight arm to your wrist.

Remember it is always better to round the number’s up and have the dress a little big (don’t suck in as every woman does when trying on dresses it will give you unreliable measurements and you might get disappointed if the dress turns up and its too small). Also ladies I know most of you will most probably be thinking of losing weight for the wedding (for some reason) but don’t take this into account when measuring because taking the dress in is way easier than taking it out and cheaper.

If you not 100% sure still where to measure use the picture to get a basic idea of where to measure on your body.

As outlined above wedding dress sizes run smaller than your run of the mill everyday high street sizes. So if you plan on buying a dress without getting yourself measured this might help you decide which size to go for or at least understand the sizing options better.

Hopefully we have provided you with some guidance, and wish you the best of luck 🙂
