You are engaged and the time has come to select your wedding dress! As you search for the perfect wedding dress, here are tips to keep in mind.
TIP #1: Know Your Budget
Determine the amount you want to spend on your dress and stick to it. When you go to buy the dress, tell the bridal consultant your budget so that they show you dresses in your price range. You can get a dress for less by buying sample dresses or looking for for sales during the year.
TIP #2 Know Your Location
You should have the location of your wedding selected before you buy your dress. If you're having a beach wedding, a lightweight dress may be more appropriate. Most fabrics are suitable all year long, but a fabric like linen is for warm weather. If you are having a formal wedding a long train with beautiful embellishment may be needed.
TIP #3: Know Who Can Help You
Bring family and friends who will be able to assist you with making a decision. You will need advice from trusted individuals. Have people come along who know you and your taste and will be honest. They can help you make a decision on your dream dress.
TIP #4: Shop Early
Try not to procrastinate on wedding dress shopping. The sooner you go the better. You should try to shop for a dress six to nine months before your wedding. If your dress has to be ordered, it will come back in enough time for you to have alterations done. If you buy a dress from the rack, you may need additional time to find the right dress.
