Yes, undoubtedly it’s exiting to go out for shopping your bridal dress but usually doing it too fast, with not too much planning may lead to catastrophic fails; so hold on for a while, take a deep breath and read carefully the following tips to avoid mistakes and bad choices.
1. Don’t shop too early
Before going out for the dress you must have set up a lot of details about the whole ceremony in order to find the wedding dress that properly fits for the wedding season, hour of ceremony, type of ceremony and so on.
Buy your gown too early might give you a wonderfull but inappropriate dress for your particular ceremony; thus try to set up some other details before buying the dress and purchase it no more than 12 months in advance.
2. Avoid last minute buys
Even when it’s not recommended to purchase your bridal dress too early, it’s neither wisdom to let such buy for the last minute. Keep in mind that not always you’ll find the dress of your dreams fast and once you decide by one, it could take up to 4 months of adjustments; so don’t make last minute shopping when is about the bridal dress.
3. Less is better
Many brides tend to go shopping with a court of “counselors” from the mom the the closest friend; actually some brides have more than 10 people helping them!
Unfortunately so many different opinions may lead to confusion instead of being helpfull, thus if you are considering to find some advise when buying your bridal dress, limit it to one or two people at most.
4. Trying too many wedding dresses
It’s charming to try a couple of models but if you have problems to decide, being out trying more than 10 bridal dresses may be an exhausting task.
Most of time, when a bride needs to try more than 4 or 5 dresses is because she does not have a clear idea of what she wants; in such cases instead of trying several dresses once and once again, it’s better to take a quiet look to bride magazines, discuss about styles and fabrics as well the nuptial ceremony details such as hour, location, season, weather and so on; in order to narrow styles and facilitate the choice.
5. Buying a dress you are not in love with
Let’s face it, sometimes due to tiredness, other times because of lack of time and frequently because of “counselors” pressure, many brides ends buying a dress they are not in love it. Nothing worth than it!
At the end of the day it will be the most special dress of your lifetime and you must be in love with every single detail and at the same time to feel comfortable wearing it. If you still have not found the dress of your dreams, don’t hesitate to step back and going to magazines and professional advise in order to clarify your ideas and be able to find the wedding dress of your dreams.
