Shopping for a wedding dress is daunting, there’s no denying it, however, if you head out with a solid plan in place, it can be one of the most exciting parts involved in planning your wedding!
Who doesn’t want to say yes to the dress, especially if it’s a designer wedding dress? This desire to wear a designer wedding dress without blowing the budget has led to the fact that many brides are exploring the option of hiring a wedding dress, especially when times have become so tough economically.
Here are a few tips for you to think about if you do decide to hire a dress for your big day.
Begin shopping for your wedding dress as early as possible
If you’re uncertain as to the style of dress you want for your dress, doing your homework, whether online or in bridal magazines, will help you to narrow down which style would best suit your body shape, so think silhouette. Once you have a clearer idea of what might suit you best, you can head out to your first fittings. To ensure you have sufficient time to find the right dress, start shopping around for your dress at least 6 to 9 months before D Day.
Check the reputation of the bridal wear store ahead of fittings
This is essential if you want your experience of shopping for a wedding dress to be one that is more of an adventure than a roller coaster ride of stress!
What you want is a bridal store that has a team with real experience in dressing brides, preferably for a long time already, so that you don’t end up being an unwitting guinea pig for a new bridal store! You have every right to ask for references before you put your dream in the wrong hands!
Make sure you inspect the dress & read the fine print of the contract
Once you’ve found the dress of your dreams, be sure to inspect the dress with a fine eye before leaving with it. Every small detail on the dress should be checked for faults or loose cottons, although, if you’ve got a team such as the one at Ever After Bridal, you won’t need to, they make sure for you. This is just to be sure before you sign on the bottom line that you’ve accepted the dress in pristine condition.
Follow up on your dress once you’ve said yes!
The team at Ever After Bridal understand exactly how big a decision your wedding dress is, so they’ll understand if you need to check in on your dream designer wedding dress to make sure all is still on track for the big day.
It won’t really be necessary since you’ll already have fitted on the dress after any minor alterations or additions have been done, but this team will be the first to keep you up to date during the journey. You won’t need a plan B if you’ve decided to hire your designer wedding dress from Ever After Bridal Wear!
