Tips for Choosing the Perfect Gown:
First set a budget: Tell your bridal salon your honest budget number so they can help you stay within that number and only pull dresses that fall within your range. That way you don’t fall in love with a dress that will break your wedding bank!
Think about your wedding and reception locations: You probably don’t want to wear a huge ballgown for a beach wedding so taking your locations into account will help you narrow down a style you’ll be most comfortable in and also help tell the story of your day.
Start shopping the earlier the better: It really does take 4-6 months for bridal gowns to come in and 2-3 months for bridesmaid dresses to arrive to the salon so plan accordingly to avoid any rush fees and unnecessary wedding stress.
Look through bridal magazines and online sites to pick some styles that you love: That will be helpful for your stylist when you go to a salon to try on gowns. *Tip: And, it’s ok if you aren’t sure what you want, it can be equally helpful for a stylist to know what you definitely don’t want.
Keep an open mind: Go ahead and try on some gowns that your Bridal Stylist recommends. They know how the dresses fit and will get a sense of your personality… You may just be pleasantly surprised!
Go by how you feel: You really should get that “You just know” feeling. The minute I see that smile and glow when brides put on that perfect dress, I know they’ve found the right one. And, usually anyone with them can see it too… Trust that feeling and you’ll glow on your wedding day!
