Is it really tough to shop for the wedding dress of your dreams? It can be, but if you plan ahead, then chances are you will end up with the perfect dress. There are thousands of different styles of wedding dresses. From the bell-shaped traditional with lace and train to your modern form-fitting gown made of satin and decorated sequins. No matter what you decide to get, you eventually have to visit some type of wedding dealer.
Selecting your gown
Before even visiting the salon of your choice, you MUST have already had a clear vision of what your wedding theme is. Once there, don’t hesitate to let the salon know what you have planned to spend. Bring in clippings from magazines of gowns that you like. This will help the salon see if they have those styles or something similar. Also, acknowledge that some salons give free consultations. Take advantage of all the advice you receive. Consultants can help you find the dress of your dream based on your age and body type.
Don’t spend money on a gown that is way out of your price range. Wedding gowns can range from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand. Take your time when selecting your gown. If it helps, sleep on your decision and decide on a different day. You don’t want to rush into anything that can lead to regret. Don’t spend all your saved money on the gown itself. You should save a little for accessories and any alterations that may need to be done. Buying your wedding dress and accessories should be about five percent of your wedding budget.
Getting fitted for your dress
When being fitted for your wedding dress, you should bring your mother or the maid of honor with you. These people can provide moral support for you if you are having doubts. You should plan on six months to decide on and fit your gown. It normally takes at least three months before your order to be placed and your gown to be made by the manufacturer. You should plan on having a total of three fittings. First, is when your gown arrives. The second is to correct mistakes or alterations that may be needed. The third is to make sure that your gown is perfect!
