Getting Started - Finding your wedding Dress

Finding your wedding dress can be an exciting and sometimes overwhelming experience.

Before you hit the stores here are a few helpful hints to make the process as enjoyable, less stressful, most memorable and as easy as possible!

To get the most out of your Bridal Dress experience:

1. Give yourself enough time.

A lot of Bridal designers and Bridal dress shops make to measure and only carry stock once a dress is ordered. The average time for most designers to order and make a Bridal Dress is between 6- 12 months however if your dress requires a particular lace or any custom changes this could take up to 18 months.

2. Set a Budget

Be real. Discuss your budget with your fiancé and any family members helping pay for your dress.

3. Have an idea of what style you want and look good in

Do your research, look at photos. Pinterest is a great place to start and an amazing wedding styling tool! Does your wedding have a theme? Bohemian, garden, regal? If so do you want your dress to reflect that?

However…

4. Be open!

It is true, at least 70% of our Brides actually end up choosing a completely different dress to what they had in mind. It is also a good idea to try on to eliminate. If you have a family member or friend telling you, you should wear a particular style give it a go there is usually only two outcomes- You prove them wrong and get them to warm up to the style of your choice or you actually surprise yourself.
