Shopping for a wedding dress should be a fun, exciting and enjoyable experience. The following are a few helpful tips to keep in consideration when wedding dress shopping.
1.) Bridal Gowns are expensive.
There is a lot of fabric that goes into constructing a wedding dress and good quality materials come at a cost. Also, do your research so that you are not trying on dresses that are way out of your price range.
2.) Trust your bridal gown consultant.
Keep in mind that no one knows the dresses better than your consultant. Instead of letting members of your entourage run ramped,collecting a plethora of dresses (that they have no idea what they will look like on), turn to your consultant and ask, “Do you have any suggestions?” Chances are she does (if she has not already made suggestions). Your consultant is there to help you, guide you and should be your confidant.
3.) Limit your company.
Although you may be tempted to invite your mothers, bridesmaids, sisters, friends etc. It is important to limit the number of guests that you bring to an appointment. The more guests, the more opinions. So, choose your guests wisely.
4.) How you feel is paramount.
It is important to remember that it is not how you look in a dress; it is how you feel in a dress that is crucial. Keep in mind, if it does not feel right, it probably does not look right either. But if a dress feels right then you may have found your dress. So, make sure you feel amazing in the dress.
Although deciding on a dress is a very important day in a bride’s life, stressing out over every minuscule detail is counter intuitive. Remember, when you feel the pressure of having to decide, simply take a moment, compose yourself and reminisce on the feeling that you felt when you first had the dress on. Try to keep things in perspective.
6.) Set a budget- and stick to it.
It is important to have a clear idea of your budget before you go out dress shopping. This is important in order to make your shopping experience enjoyable and, ultimately, to help you find the dress.
