Planning a wedding can be one of the most exciting experiences of your life — but it can also be very stressful. Considering a few reassuring tips below to avoid mistakes when choosing a wedding dress, you’re likely to be even more gorgeous than you imagined. Because choosing a dress is one of those big details that you don’t want to get wrong.

Don’t Shop Solely Online

Though the Internet is a great way to get started and even shop for daily essentials and small items, your wedding dress should really be tried on in person. You’ll get a better idea of the fit, alterations and the fabric.

Consider the Venue

Wearing an elegant, French lace A-line to a backyard barn wedding is probably not the best idea. Match your dress to the venue so that you’re comfortable and appropriate.

Be Open Minded

There are likely a few types of dresses you know look good on you, but throw in some wildcards. You might be impressed at something that flatters you more than you thought.

Set a Budget and Stick to It

It’s going to be painful if you try on a dress that is three or four times your budget and fall in love with it. Check sample sales or second hand for a bargain beauty.

Expect Good Service

You’re making an expensive purchase for one of the most memorable events of your life. You should be treated with respect and made to feel special, with all concerns addressed.

Ask All Questions

If you think of it, ask it. You’re not expected to know everything about something you’ve never done before. The staff has lots of experience for you to draw on.

Wear Nude Underwear

You should be prepared at your fittings to be trying on dresses with the help of the staff. Make sure you wear something you don’t mind being seen in and something that is strapless and close to your skin tone to get the best impression of the dress.

Bring the Important People

You don’t want to be overwhelmed by others’ opinions. Only bring one or two trusted people whose opinion matters to you. However, your opinion counts the most.

Worrying About the Fit

The size label doesn’t matter since there is no universal agreement on dress sizing. A size 4 and a size 8 may fit the same person well. That said make sure you buy something that fits right now. Don’t try to get something you need to lose weight to fit in.

Shopping Too Early or Too Late

You want enough time for alterations but also enough planning to know your venue and your wedding date. The ideal time to shop for a wedding dress is nine months prior to your big day.
