How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Dress

Every bride knows that the dress is the most important part of her wedding day. Well, apart from the groom, of course. However, with so many styles, designers, shapes, and sizes to choose from, how do you go about finding the perfect dress for your wedding? Read on to find out!

Take the time to research

It’s highly unlikely that you’ll walk into your nearest bridal boutique and immediately find the dress of your dreams. Instead, you need to take the time to research the different styles of wedding dresses available so that you can determine what you like and what you don’t.

Stock up on bridal magazines, hit Pinterest hard, and see what celebrity brides are wearing, all of which will help you to get a better idea of what’s in fashion at the moment and how you can incorporate these looks into your big day.

Keep an open mind

Many brides have had a particular wedding dress style in mind since they were little girls but that doesn’t mean that this is the right choice for them as a grown-up.

You may find that the dress you always dreamed of doesn’t look right on you or that your tastes have evolved over the years. Therefore, it’s important that you keep an open mind and try on styles that you may not have considered before.

Shop true to your size

Planning to lose weight before your wedding day? If so, then you’re far from alone. However, even if you do lose a few pounds before the big day, you should still always buy your wedding dress true to your size as it’s a lot easier to take a wedding dress in than it is to let it out.

Plus, planning a wedding is stressful enough without having to watch what you eat or go hungry.

Start shopping early on

If you plan to have your wedding dress custom-made, then you need to bear in mind that this process can take between 6–8 months to complete, or even longer if your wedding day is bang in the middle of the wedding season.

Therefore, the sooner you can start shopping for your perfect dress, the better, Also, don’t forget that you also need to factor in time to make any alterations or adjustments that are needed.

Know your budget

No one likes to talk numbers but when it comes to your wedding dress, you need to know exactly how much you have available to spend before you hit the shops.

If someone else is paying for your wedding dress, such as your parents or your soon-to-be in-laws, make sure you sit down with them and find out how much you’re able to spend.

Believe us, there’s nothing worse than finding your dream dress and then not being able to afford to buy it.
