Choosing the perfect wedding dress
Choosing your wedding dress is one of the most anticipated moment before your actual wedding. Finding the right dress will require taking some time to browse around and try several dresses before taking the final decision. You might consider the tips below to guide you in your search.
Define a budget
Defining a budget would allow you to determine your options and which shops to rule out. Ruling out some “out-of-budget” stores will shorten your search span and get you closer to finding the right dress.
Trust your taste and not trends
Fashionable dresses go out of fashion unfortunately. If you would rather have a timeless dress, you might want to opt for a classic that would look appealing even after decades.
Always try it out
Some dresses might not look good on shop hangers but you will not know how it looks on you until you try it. Trying out will help you determine how it hugs your curves and complement your body.
Don’t take dress sizes into consideration
Dresses in stores usually come 1 to 2 sizes biggers, this is to enable adjustments depending on the bride’s dress size. Most bridal dress stores offer fitting services, you would just need to confirm this with your sales consultant.
Take a lot of pictures of yourself
Before going dress shopping, you might want to call the shop to confirm whether you will be allowed to take pictures of yourself in the dress for decision-making. You might compare several pictures later to help you find the most appealing dress.
