Yay! You’re engaged!
Now, you have chosen your venue, date and wedding planner… Let the fun begin!
What is one thing that we love more than wedding planning? Shopping!
A wedding gown is one of a bride’s most prized possessions, you want it to be absolutely perfect!
It is best to start your shopping excursions as early as possible, gowns can take up to a year to prepare!
In this day in age, with as many different brands and styles available, brides have so many options. It is imperative that you consider any potential religious restrictions to your gown.
Shopping around early for your gown is best because you don’t want to feel rushed, and you want to be sure to try them out and see what you love!
Help yourself alleviate the potential stress factor of wedding gown related business by getting ahead of the game and staying on top of your appointments.
When shopping for your gown, you want to be sure that you are in full understanding of your chosen store’s policies and practices, along with what is included in your purchase when you are ready to do so. Inclusions may or may not include your hairpiece, veil, or alterations.
Staring points when you head out to find your perfect gown are simple…
First, have your budget ready!
You want to make sure that you spend your time focused on gowns that are in your investment zone.
This will help narrow down your potential options!
Let the bridal salon make recommendations. You know how the old saying goes, “don’t knock it ’til you try it!”
They are in their profession for a reason, and have seen many brides try many gowns! See what they have to offer, you never know how it may go!
Many brides will bring their everyone in their phonebook if they can to their dress fittings… Don’t do this. Limit your squad to your core group of those who will have valid points and make solid recommendations, limiting your crowd will give you a more intimate experience for something as special as this!
One note that will prevent a potential headache is to make an appointment! If you want the attention that you so deserve, make an appointment to get an expert to cater to you. Let the experts immerse you into a proper experience.
Finally, trust your instincts! If your squad has to constantly tell you that you look stunning, and you aren’t feeling it… Chances are it’s not the “one!”
This is totally okay, but don’t settle. You are supposed to feel just like the princess that you are on your big day, don’t let the wrong dress make you feel otherwise!
