When you start out on the journey to shopping for a wedding dress there’s no doubt that no shopping excursion you’ve ever had can be compared to the experience of shopping for your wedding dress. This makes it worth keeping in mind any tips that come along that might help to make the journey as easy as possible for you.
One of the best things you can do is to plan ahead as much as is possible before you start fittings. It’s a daunting experience, no doubt about that, but good planning will definitely ease some of the pressure.
An important note to keep in mind is that you need to be sure that the dress you choose will be comfortable, so, no matter how beautiful a wedding dress is, if you aren’t completely comfortable in it you may struggle with confidence as you head down the aisle.
This is one of the most exciting experiences you’ll have, and you deserve to make it as easy on yourself as possible, so that you can enjoy it as an adventure rather than as a traumatic experience!
A few pointers that may help when you head out shopping for your wedding dress:
Keep your favourite ideas in one place to take with to fittings
The overwhelming amount of wedding dress styles could cause confusion while you try to sort through them all to find the dress that’ll make you look like a princess, as well as the one that’ll match the mood of the wedding.
By narrowing down these ideas as much as possible and keeping them in one folder before you head out shopping will allow you to have a better idea of more or less where you’re heading in terms of style, and it’ll help you to stick to your basic ideas about what you’re looking for.
A good tip here is to keep an open mind too, because you never know what can happen! You may end up falling in love with a dress that’s completely different to those you’ve been keen on!
Allow yourself a lot of time
One of the first things you’ll need to do, especially if you’re getting married in Cape Town, is to find and settle on the venue for your wedding. This is important because Cape Town is the wedding capital for locals and international visitors!
Believe it or not, you’ll find it easier to visualise the style of wedding dress that’ll suit the the venue and the mood you’re planning to set on the day.
You can take a lot of pressure off yourself by starting the wedding dress hunt at least 6 months before the wedding. It would be a heavy load to add to all the wedding preparations you’re in for, if you’re still not sure of your wedding dress as the day draws nearer.
If you don’t have time, choose a designer wedding dress off the rack!
Though not all brides have the luxury of time to find a wedding dress well ahead of the wedding day, it certainly doesn’t mean you won’t be able to find the perfect dress in the time you do have!
