This is one of the first tasks of the brides who are going to get married and we advise you to choose between 8 and 7 months before the wedding. There is a lot of emotion at this moment, since it is the dress that you are going to wear the most important day of your life, although also from experience we know that it can generate stress, tension, nerves, because in many occasions there are a variety of opinions from your mothers, friends, and family. Precisely to make this path easier, we want to give you 11 ideas for finding your perfect wedding dress.
It is important that you know your budget limit before going to the wedding dress boutique. That way, you save yourself illusion with a dress that is not within your reach and then leaves with empty hands, and the store manager will show you only those that are within your budget. Remember that also in the budget you must include accessories (veils, jewelry), shoes and arrangements.
It is important that after having the date and location you start with the search for your dress. If you choose for example a designer, it will take between 4 or 5 months to have it ready, and you will have at least 3 dress tests during the whole process, the last being one month before the wedding.
Choosing a dress with a lot of volume and weight at the bottom can be uncomfortable for example if you get married on the beach, also if the chosen place is a finca with a rustic or bohemian style of decoration you should influence when choosing the style of your dress that should not be the same as if you decided to get married in an elegant city hotel. The location we believe is an important element to consider, so we advise you not to buy the dress before defining the venue.
Trying a style and design of the dress that does not favor your silhouette can discourage you. The models that we see in the magazines may seem wonderful but always have to consider the necklines and silhouette of dress that most favors your figure to hit fully.
In television programs, we see that brides are accompanied by a large group of people to the dress test, which makes the choice by the variety of opinions difficult. So in this sense, less is more. We advise you to take two people to the test, your mother and your best friend for example. And if you still would like the rest of your friends or family to enjoy that moment, you can take them to the final test of the dress to be surprised.
It is important that you go well combed and with some makeup to the dress test because you will see much more favored, as well as prepared with underwear for the occasion (a strapless bra and nude color panties). Also if you have items that you want to wear as a veil or some special jewel, you must wear it that day.
Even if you go with a style or model in mind, it is important that you are open to suggestions from experts. Maybe that dress on the hanger does not catch your attention but then you try it and you get a huge surprise because it looks spectacular.
In bridal fashion, the sizes are very different from the conventional ones so do not worry if you see that you wear more than normal and do not make the mistake of buying a tight dress thinking that you will lose weight in the following months.
You must walk through the store, sit down, even if you dare to dance a little because that is what you will do on your wedding day and you have to feel comfortable in the dress you choose.
Many brides are surprised when they find their dress in the first test, but that’s how it works when you see it and you know it’s the dress; you just know it, trust your instinct. Sometimes in television programs, we see how 10 and 12 dresses are tested and what it does is complicate things and even end up exhausted in the decision process.
A good saleswoman or manager will review all the details with you: the price, color, name of the model and brand, the delivery date, the deposit, the cost of the settlement, the cancellation policy. As for the deposit as normal and what you must accept is 50%. It is also important that you know the final price including taxes, as it varies considerably.
We hope these tips are useful and keep them in mind if you are going to start looking for your dress and we wish you luck at this time, because we know that it is one of the moments of the process that most illusion makes to all brides, which it is logical, because that day all eyes will be placed on you. So take note of what we have said and say yes to your dress. We want your comments and suggestions to improve our ideas. Thank you and have a great day!
