Wedding Dress Shopping Tips

Wedding Dress Shopping Tips

Congratulations on your engagement! As you begin to plan your dream wedding, one of the most exciting parts is shopping for your wedding dress. However, it can also be overwhelming and stressful. With so many styles, fabrics, and designers to choose from, it's easy to get lost in the sea of options. To help make your wedding dress shopping experience more enjoyable and successful, here are some tips to keep in mind.


Start Early


Wedding dress shopping should begin at least 8-10 months before the wedding date. This will allow you plenty of time to find your dream dress, as well as time for alterations and fittings. Keep in mind that some designers may require up to six months to create your dress, so be sure to factor that into your timeline.



Do your Research


Before heading to a bridal boutique, do some research online to get an idea of the styles you like. Browse wedding dress designers and collections to see what catches your eye. Consider the wedding theme and venue to help guide your search for the perfect dress.



Set a Budget


Wedding dresses come in all price ranges, so it's important to set a budget before you start shopping. Be upfront with your bridal consultant about your budget, so they can guide you towards dresses that fit within your price range.


Bring the right undergarments and shoes


To get the most accurate idea of how a dress will fit, bring the undergarments and shoes you plan to wear on your wedding day. This will help you see how the dress will look and feel on the big day.


Keep an open mind


While it's important to have an idea of what you want in a dress, it's also important to keep an open mind. Your bridal consultant may suggest a dress that you never would have considered, but could end up being your perfect match. Don't be afraid to try on dresses that are outside of your comfort zone.



Limit your entourage


While it's tempting to bring all of your bridesmaids and family members to your dress appointments, it's best to limit your entourage to just a few trusted individuals. Too many opinions can make the decision-making process more difficult and overwhelming.


Trust your instincts


When you find the dress that makes you feel confident and beautiful, trust your instincts. Don't let others sway you from your decision or make you doubt yourself. Ultimately, it's your day and your dress, so choose what makes you happy.
