3 Expert Wedding Dress Shopping tips for the perfect gown
Your upcoming wedding can elicit both feelings of excitement and anxiety, especially when it comes to choosing your wedding dress. We have compiled some expert wedding dress shopping tips to ensure you get the right dress and enjoy the process of finding it.
1. Go For a Dress That Fits You Now
Most brides to-be want to be at their best for their wedding day, with some incorporating more fitness into their routine to make that happen. It may be tempting to go for a smaller dress size with the hope of dropping some pounds to fit into the smaller size. Lauren Green from The Knot, points out that it is easier and more cost effective to scale down the size of a dress than it is to increase it.
2. Bring a Maximum of Three People To Go Shopping
You may feel inclined to bring an entourage of all your girlfriends, your mom and your mother in-law to-be to help you choose your wedding dress. However, the more people you bring along, the more opinions you will receive, which will make it confusing to reach a final decision. Even the best of intentions can complicate things! Mara Urshel, the co-owner of Kleinfeld Bridals, during an interview with the “Real Simple” recommends that you bring no more than three people when shopping.
3. Go For The Dress That Gives You The “Wow” Effect
As highlighted in the Bridal Guide, top among the common mistakes brides make when choosing their wedding gown is settling instead of following their heart. You have to look in the mirror and fall in love with what you see. If you do not like it in the shop, chances are, you will not love it walking down the aisle.
