Don’t tease yourself with something you can’t have. Trying on a dress out of your price range will ruin the dresses that you can afford. Keep your eyes focused on your budget.
Every bride wants to improve their body for their wedding day, but don’t buy a dress to fit a body you don’t have yet.
You will know the right dress the second you put it on. If you have to talk yourself into a dress, then it’s not the one for you.
When trying on dresses, your family and friends may love a style that you do not. That’s OK! Don’t be afraid to speak up about what you want.
Bringing family and friends to shop for a wedding dress is always a good idea, but limit the amount of people who tag along. We suggest two to three max; the more people you bring, the more opinions you’ll hear, which can be counterproductive.
We suggest doing some research before trying on dresses, but there is such a thing as too much. You don’t want to pin so many dress styles that you no longer know what you want.
Before starting the search for your dress, find out what style dress looks best on you. That way you don’t waste time on a fitting.
Always remember that a dress on a hanger is going to be a completely different dress than when it’s actually on you.
If you already have the accessories you will be wearing on the big day, be sure to bring them so you can see the dress as a complete look. Same with your heels. You want to know what your dress will look like with the shoes you plan to wear.
Same idea as bringing your shoes & accessories. This will help you envision what the dress will really look like on the day you say “I do.”
