When it comes to wedding dress shopping there is so much to keep in mind. At Ashley and Alexandra’s Bridal Boutique we like to keep our brides happy and as stress free as possible. We narrowed down some of the top tips for you to think about when it comes to shopping for your bridal gown.
It is very important to start early and have everything set when it comes to your wedding dress. You want to leave enough room for alterations, ordering, and the like. With all of the other planning that needs to be done, you want to have security that you found your perfect dress.
Set a budget
Be sure to stay within or lower than your budget. This is important when planning, think big picture and long term.
Look for a dress that works for your body type
We all come in a beautiful shapes and sizes and our wedding dresses should reflect that. When you are shopping the following tips from The Knot will help you determine the best style and fit for you.
Bring your camera
There is so much excitement surrounding shopping for your bridal dress and there are so many options. It is important to bring a camera and have someone take the pictures for you so you can look go back and review your choices. Be sure the boutique allows cameras. Ask about their policy when you make your appointment.
Keep Your Squad Small
This is an exciting time, and we want to bring our near and dears. Please don’t bring everyone up to your fourth removed cousin (unless you happen to have a fourth removed cousin that is really close). Be considerate of the bridal salon and others.
These are some tips to remember, we found more that will help over at Martha Stewart Weddings.
