How to Find Your Perfect Wedding Dress

It’s time. Yes, you read right. We said: “It’s time.” It’s time to stop making excuses. It’s time to stop procrastinating. And it’s finally time to get all your ducks in a row.

We’re talking about finding that perfect wedding dress. The one that makes you feel like a superstar. The one that gives you all the confidence of a runway model. The one that will make your partner faint from excitement.

You know the one. In your head, you’ve imagined it. In your sleep, you’ve dreamt of it. But in reality, you have yet to find it. And as always, we’re here to help. So here are top 4 tips on how to get there:

Check Your Piggy Bank

Remember that piggy bank you had as a child? Time to take it off the top shelf of your closet and smash it open. Now that you know how much money you have saved, decide on your budget. Once you’ve picked your price range, find shops that only work within that range. It’s easier to make a decision when you have only a certain number of options to choose from.

Schedule Your Time

Pick boutiques that sell wedding dresses in alignment with your budget. Next, look through catalogues and take note of those dresses in that price range. Now, set aside time each week to visit store locations. It’s easy to stick to a task if you pencil into your week, so be sure to make an appointment.

Don’t Limit Yourself

Too often do we hear of brides that are insistent on sticking to one wedding dress style. Do not be that bride. Try different designs and contemplate multiple styles. Never limit yourself. You’ll be surprised at what looks good on you. And you’ll always be disappointed when one style doesn’t measure up to your expectations.

Perfect Your Fit

We tell brides all the time, always start looking for your dress at least six months before your wedding date. Not only does it take a considerable amount of time to find one that you like, it also takes time to alter it to fit your body. Once that’s done, you’ll be all set to walk down that aisle.
