Pitfalls to avoid when shopping for your dream wedding dress

Shopping for your dream wedding dress should be a time of excitement, magic and wonder, however, it can also be rather nerve wrecking if you make some of the mistakes many first-time brides have made, mistakes that can spoil what should be a fairy princess dream come true!

If it’s at all possible, get yourself ready, organised and well-researched in advance of shopping for your dress.  The best plan is to start your homework five to nine months in advance of your wedding. This is just to make sure that any and all alterations that may be needed will be ready on time.

The theme of your wedding is going to be a big deciding factor in how you approach moving in the right direction to find your dream wedding dress; if you’ve dreamed of a frothy, floating ball gown or a glittering mermaid style wedding dress, make sure it suits the theme, season and time of day for the wedding.  This is far too important a day to end up unhappy and uncomfortable in your wedding dress!

Knowing a little about the language attached to wedding dresses, such as understanding the different dress styles – such as A-line, mermaid, column, fish-tale and more will stand you in good stead. It will also help you to get an idea of the many necklines available, which would include terms like square, V and halter. Understanding and knowing a little about this terminology and which suits you best is going to make your journey to that dream dress a tad easier in the long run.

Whatever you do, don’t choose the dress for your mother, mother-in-law, best friend or anyone else for that matter! It’s your wedding dress, so choose the one you want, the one that makes you feel like the fairy-tale princess you dreamed of being!

Don’t even think about choosing accessories like a veil before you find the dress!  You may just find that nothing matches by the time you’ve fitted and discarded many dresses before you find the one!
