12 Things to Know About Wedding Dress Shopping - Part 1

Most brides have been dreaming of their wedding day since they were little girls. You've imagined what you'd look like, and now the time has come to bring those dreams to reality. One of the most exciting aspects of wedding planning is the process of finding the perfect dress to wear on your special day! Below, Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches offers a list of things to know about wedding dress shopping in South Florida.

1. Research What You Like. 

If you're like most women, you've probably spent plenty of time on Pinterest saving ideas of what you want your wedding to be like. Take a look online or at bridal magazines to compile a visual file of what you like and don't like about certain wedding dresses. Look for connecting themes between the dresses that you love. Are they embellished? Lacy? Voluminous? Strapless? Find the commonalities that you like and bring those ideas to your first appointment at our bridal salon in the Palm Beaches.

2. Have an Open Mind. 

While it's great to have ideas of what you want, be sure to keep an open mind. Remember that bridal consultants have met with hundreds of brides and seen thousands of different dress designs. They know a thing or two about matching the perfect dress with a beautiful bride. You've probably heard stories of brides coming in with a set idea of what they want, but then when they try it on they just don't love it. Instead, they end up falling in love with something completely different. Be open to your consultants suggestions; even if you don't like it on the hanger, try it on to see how it looks and feels on you.

3. Shop True to Size. 

What bride doesn't want to be in the best shape possible for their wedding? For many, that means exercising and eating healthy to drop a few pounds. Even if you plan on shedding some weight before the big day, you'll want to shop for your current size. It's much easier to take a dress in than work with one that's too snug. Note: Be prepared for your dress size to be larger than your current clothing size. Wedding dress sizes are different, and just remember that no one is going to know the number on your dress size except you and your consultant.

4. Come Up with a Budget. 

Weddings can easily become quite expensive. Just like with the catering, venue, etc. you'll want to establish a budget for your wedding dress, shoes and accessories. Before your first wedding dress appointment, , figure out who is paying for your dress. Is it you? Your parents? If it's someone besides you, be sure to talk numbers on the limit. Then you can choose to stay within budget or cover the difference yourself if needed. While it may be uncomfortable to talk numbers, it will save you from heartache later on.

5. Choose Your Shopping Crew Wisely. 

While you want to have the important women in your life by your side while trying on dresses, be sure to choose those people wisely. Have you ever tired to get a large group of people to agree on something? You don't want too many opinions about your dress. Narrow your group down to 2-3 people who's opinions matter to you most. Once you're shopping, and those opinions start flying, it's easy to get caught up in the moment and start agreeing with what your crew likes best. In the end, be sure to stay true to what you like.
