One of the best moments of planning a wedding is finding that perfect dress, but if you don’t know what you’re looking for, the entire process can feel overwhelming. We’re here to make shopping for a dress less stressful – check out these basic tips to finding the wedding dress of your dreams.

Tip #1

Before you go shopping for a  wedding dress, set a budget. Keeping a price in mind will help you narrow down the options. There are so many designers, styles and silhouettes to choose from, which can lead you to feel overwhelmed before you even step in the door of a salon. After setting the price, stick to it –don’t look at dresses outside the budget because you don’t want to fall in love with a gown that’s beyond your price range.


Tip #2

We always encourage our brides to find dresses that fit and flatter her current figure. Whether you want to accentuate your neckline or minimize the waistline, there are plenty of dresses that help achieve the look you want. One of the most important style tips is to shop for the body you have now – it’s much easier to take in a dress size rather than let it out in the weeks leading up to the wedding.

Tip #3

Finally, one of the best ways to find your perfect wedding dress is by choosing a gown that complements your wedding style. Thinking about saying ‘I do’ at the beach? A voluminous ball gown might not be the best style choice. Once you determine your venue or destination, choosing a wedding dress to fit the ambiance will make shopping much easier.
