Before you go wedding dress shopping with all the saved pictures from Pinterest and Instagram, there are some things to have the back of your mind. No worries, we’ve got you.
Wedding dress shopping isn’t something to be done spontaneously. It’s okay to take your time so that you don’t get pressured into getting a dress you don’t really like. Here are a few things to consider first.
Limit your shopping crew
Don’t be tempted to go wedding dress shopping with a lot of people. The fewer the people, the fewer the opinions you’ll deal with and in turn, less pressure.
Do some reviews
It’s better to stick to places or people that you either know or have someone who knows them. It reduces your chances of going to too many places without finding anything close to what you want.
Don’t get discouraged
You might not see what you want the first few times you go shopping. As long as you keep an open mind, you’ll eventually see what you love. So don’t give up just yet or settle.
Especially if you’re opting for a rental, it’s safer to plan for hidden costs. Sometimes, the cost for the veil, the undergarments, and some other accessories may not be included generally, so don’t plan using only the price of the gown stated on a wedding dress site.
Shop for your body
When shopping, it’s safer to shop based on your body frame and type, and don’t be bothered about your weight. Your weight can change a lot of times because of the stress of planning your wedding. Concentrate instead on finding designs that flatter your features and make you feel amazing.
Try weekday shopping
Weekday shopping gives you the luxury of not dealing with crowds. It also allows you enough time with the person in charge as he or she won’t have too many customers to attend to at the same time.
Have fun while shopping! Would you rather buy, rent or make a dress? These tips will help you decide.
