5 tips to hone in on the right style for your big day.
Choosing your wedding dress can feel like a terrifying process. Firstly, there are just so, so, SO many options out there it can be overwhelming. Secondly, how on earth do you chose a dress which is supposed to make you look (and feel) like the most beautiful you’ve ever felt??! Hello pressure!!
1. Find Styles You Like
Browse through bridal magazines, the Internet and Pinterest. Save, cut out and Pin dresses that appeal to you.
2. Pick Your Favorites
Look over the images you saved and see if you have any similar styles or patterns. Are all of the dresses you like a particular style? Start there, then narrow it down and make a list of the features you know you prefer.
3. Make Appointments
Be sure to bring your favorite images to the salon and tell them the style of dress you are interested in. It’s also helpful to find out which designers each salon carries — check out the designer websites and make a note of styles you like. Don’t forget to tell them what your budget is! Trying on a dress that’s well outside of your budget will only lead to frustration, and the last thing your consultant wants to do is put you in a dress you can’t afford. Make a day of it and invite important people in your life, like you mother, sister, maid of honor, bridesmaids, etc. But keep this in mind—the more you invite, the more opinions there are.
4. Venture Outside of Your Comfort Zone
Don’t say “no” to trying on styles other than your favorites. Trust your consultant during your appointment. They pick out dresses for brides on a daily basis and have a better idea of their inventory. You may be surprised and choose a gown you least expect! The more you communicate with your bridal consultant, the better your experience will be. Be sure to tell them exactly what you do or don’t like about each dress you try on—if you don’t like how your waist looks in an A-line dress, then you probably want to move on to a different style.
5. Don’t Forget the Extras
If you’re on the fence about a dress, ask to try on a veil, headpiece or jewelry (if the bridal salon carries those items). Accessories can sometimes add that extra bit of detail that might be missing—it’s the icing on the cake! The color of a dress can also make a huge difference. At the beginning of your appointment, let your consultant know what color you’re interested in (white, ivory, blush, etc.). The sample dress you fall in love with might not be the color your looking for, but you might be able to order it!
