Last week, we started a list of things you should know about wedding dress shopping in South Florida. From keeping an open mind to coming up with a budget, there's a lot that goes in to finding that perfect look for your wedding day. Keep reading for part 2 of our list, featuring even more things to know!

7. Wear Heels to the Appointment.
Your dress is going to look a lot different with flip-flops than with high heels. Bring either your wedding shoes, or if you don't have them yet, a pair with a heel similar to the height of what you would like to wear on your wedding day. This will give you the best idea of how it will look, and give you a chance to walk in it with heels on.

8. Bring the Proper Undergarments.
Be sure to bring a variety of undergarments to try on with your dress, especially a strapless bra. It can be difficult to picture the perfect look with hot pink bra straps sticking out. Your best bet is to bring a nude thong and a nude strapless bra. You might want to bri…

In honor of Father's Day this weekend, Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches wanted to offer some advice for the Father of the Bride.

1. Plan a Budget.

2. Write Your Speech Early. 
As the Father of the Bride, you will be expected to give a small speech at the reception. Don't wait until the last minute to c…
