Choosing Your Wedding Dress

Preparing to Say Yes to Your Wedding Dress 

Wedding dress shopping is an exciting milestone during the wedding planning process. You are choosing the dress that you will wear when you marry the love of your life. It will serve as a reminder of your wedding and all of the beautiful memories that were made. Selecting the perfect dress involves a lot of research and time. Learn how to prepare for saying yes to the dress with helpful tips from Dream Beach Wedding. 

Schedule an Appointment 

Scheduling an appointment at a bridal salon is essential when trying to find your ideal dress. An appointment allows you to receive undivided attention and help from stylists and consultants. We recommend scheduling an appointment months before your wedding as it can take awhile to make the dress as well as complete any alterations prior to your special day. 

Choose a Style 

Before arriving at your appointment, you should have a style in mind. You can draw inspiration from wedding designers, celebrity weddings, and online lookbooks. There are many types of silhouettes: ball gown, sheath, A-line, mermaid, fit and flare; the list goes on. What kind of neckline will look best on you? Do you want something more minimalistic and simple or glamorous? Are you interested in elaborate detailing? These are all questions you have to ask yourself so you have an idea before walking into your appointment. It is also important to keep in mind the location of your wedding. This might determine what type of dress you choose. 

Figure Out a Budget 

Set a budget for your dress and try your very best to stick to it. Avoid trying on dresses that are not in your price range. Make sure to specify to your bridal consultant how much you are willing to spend.

Include Close Family and Friends 

While some may prefer to find their dress on their own, others appreciate having close family and friends be part of the journey. They can offer helpful advice and be supportive during the process. 

Have an Open Mind 

While you might have the exact dress you want in mind, we recommend being open to other styles and designs. You may be surprised to find that another dress is more flattering or has something you did not expect to like. It’s also important to not settle on a dress. You may have to try on multiple dresses at several salons before you can say yes. Your perfect dress is out there waiting for you, don’t ever feel discouraged!
