Anyone who’s ever watched Say Yes to the Dress knows how stressful wedding dress shopping can be. With so many choices, how do you find the right one (or two!) for you? Just follow the tips below to help narrow the selection and ensure that you’ll look your best on your big day.
Know your budget. There’s nothing worse than trying on a dress and falling in love with it, only to realize it’s beyond your price range.
Abide by your dress code. You’d be surprised how many brides look completely out of place at their own wedding. Yes, your personality should shine through your dress, but choose something that befits the ambiance. A princess ball gown, for instance, will look completely out of place at a beach wedding.
Plan ahead. Wear undergarments to the consultation that are similar to those you plan to wear on your wedding day so your dress will fit correctly. Likewise, wear the same style of shoes to the consultation that you plan to wear on your big day. You’d be surprised how much shoes can effect the way a dress falls, let alone the length of the hem.
Primp a little. Don’t come straight from the gym. Do your makeup. Think you want your hair up for your wedding? Give yourself a quick, loose updo. When you gaze into the mirror, you should be able to visualize your wedding day look without having to see beyond your unmade face and hair!
Enjoy the experience. Relax and have fun. You’ll know the right dress when you see it!
