When it comes to your planning your wedding day, there are a lot of things to organize. One of the main things that can cause a lot of stress is finding your perfect dress. There is a lot of pressure on finding the dress that fits you perfectly and is just as you’d imagined, isn’t there? So here are some tips for buying your wedding dress, without all of the added hassle.
It is so important to get the perfect wedding dress for you and your big day – you don’t want to look back and regret your choice of dress.
Don’t Schedule Your Bridal Shop Appointment Late In The Day
If you arrange your dress fitting in the morning, then you will get a team of store assistants that are fresh and ready to help. If yours is the last appointment in the day, and the team has had to deal with a couple of bridezillas during the day, they might not be on their best form to help you. The store is likely to be less crowded first thing in the morning too. So in this case, the early bird does get the best dress!
Do Focus on Choosing a Flattering Style For Your Shape
You might have always wanted a certain style of wedding dress. But you won’t know what it looks like on you until you start to try on some styles. So trying a variety is a good way to go. From there, you can focus on color, style, details, and accessories.
Don’t Blow Your Budget on the Dress
It is a special day when you get married, and the dress is an important part of that. But at the end of the day, it is still just a dress. Will you wear it again? Unlikely. Will you make it into something else afterward? Quite possibly. So there is no need to go beyond what you can afford just for one day and one dress. So look out for the best ways to save money on your wedding dress, and you’ll be thankful that you did. You could choose a secondhand style or have a friend that is handy with a sewing machine make you one, for example.
Don’t Forget About the Top Half of the Dress
This might sound like a bit of a silly one, but many brides only focus on the train and details on the lower half of the dress. While that is important and give the overall look a wow factor, you need to think about the top half too. Many photographs on your wedding day will be from the waist up, so you don’t want it to be completely plain and bland unless that is they style that you are after.
Do Bring a Camera With You
If the store allows it, then take a camera, or just use your phone, when you’re at the bridal dress store. We can see ourselves differently when we see a photograph, rather than in a mirror. So try the dresses on in a few different styles and then you can see what you look like when you’re not looking at yourself in the mirror.
