1. The company you keepWhile you mighthave dreamed of sipping champagne with all your nearest and dearest friends at a bridal salon, that’s really not the way it works. Choose your shopping companions wisely.We suggest bringing only one or two people with you whose opinions you trust the most.Too many opinions, or those that are not genuine can be seriouslydistracting. Many of our brides chose to come alone for their first visit and bring their mother, sister, or best friend back with them for the final decision. – Continue Reading Below2. Don’t overshareWe seem to now live in a world that feels likeif you don’t post it, it didn’t happen! But some things should be keptprivate until the right moment. It’s not just your fianc thatshould notsee your weddingdress before the big day, but truly everyone. If you would like to take a few pictures for yourself fine, but resist the urge to share.3. Do your researchI cannot stress how important it is to browse through bridal magazines and websitesto get an idea of what is out therebefore you shop. You will know what you react to, positively and negatively, and this will help your consultant immensely in finding the right styles for you to try.4. Keep an open mindWith that said canada goose outlet store , be open minded. You may have researched and discovered what you like, but your consultant may have a good idea of what works best on you too. Be open to trying a few you things you may not have considered. A gown on a hanger will look completely different on a body.5. Know your date and venue It is imperative to know when and where you are getting married before you can decide what you will wear to be married in. The ballroom at The Plaza requires a different stylegown than a garden in Vermont.Your venue and location will truly dictate the style and formality of the gown you choose. The season may also determinethefabric, color, and details on the gown. If you don’t have a date and a venue, you are not ready to shop.6.Dress appropriatelyWhen shopping for wedding gownsyou will bechanging in and out of dresses in front of your shopping companions and your consultant. Make sure you are wearingthe proper undergarments that you will feel comfortable in, and will not show through some of the gowns (no black, red, or polka dots). – Continue Reading Below7. Your makeupYou do not need camera ready make-up. We know you may want to take a few photos to remember your favorites, but many of these gowns will need to go over your head so please skip the lipstick! The same goes for self tanners and anything else that can damage the gown.8. Have a budget in mindEven if you are not truly limited in what you can spend, you should have an idea of what you want to spend. Remember that alterations, sales tax and /or shipping are additional costs and vary from gown to gown. You should ask your consultant about what the alterations costs would be before you make your final decision.9. SizingDo not assume you are going to lose weight. Asking a salon to order you a size smaller than you need is a dangerous risk. You never know what will truly happen. Order the size you need at the time you order the gown. If you lose or gain weight , the alterationexperts will take care of you. 10. Shop on timeDesigner bridal gowns are all made to order, that means they are not cut and sewn until your order is received. They are not mass produced items that can be made quickly. You should order your gownno later than six months prior to your wedding. If you place your order any closer to your wedding date, you will inquire a „rush fee“ from the designer or not be able to order the gown you have chosen at all. Eight to 10 months is the optimal time to order your gown to insure that all goes on schedule and allow you a little breathing room.11. Stay true to yourselfI always tell my brides not to reinventthemselves on their wedding day. When you shop for and ultimately choose your wedding gown, choose a gown that reflects who you are and your personal style. You want to be the best version of you on your wedding day!More fromMark Ingram here.From: Town
