While not every little girl may daydream about her wedding day and prince charming from a young age, when the time comes to shop for a wedding dress, it is often cause for more anxiety than excitement, when it should be the other way around.
On its own, wedding planning is stressful enough, which is why it’s vital to find a bridal shop that will make the process a little bit easier and a lot more fun.
What to do to make the journey to your dress simpler:
Set your budget
In general, experts say that it’s best to have a set budget to start off with, leaving a little leeway here and there for any extra’s and alterations. This will make it a lot easier for you to keep away from dresses that, while they may take your breath away, will also decimate your budget!
The team at Ever After Bridal Wear in Durbanville, Cape Town, will respect your budget and still make sure you leave having found the wedding dress of your dreams!
Don’t leave it to the last minute
It takes a few months from placing the order to picking up your dress, especially if there are alterations to be done. You’ll make it a lot easier on yourself if you start shopping for your wedding dress around 6 to 9 months ahead of time, which will be your buffer for avoiding any unnecessary stress!
Do some homework
Browse through bridal wear websites, visit bridal fairs or page through bridal magazines to get as clear an idea as you can about the style of dress you like. Make a point of saving your favourite dress styles on your phone or tablet to take along to your first fitting. This will ensure that your bridal consultant can assist you to eliminate the dresses that won’t suit your body type.
Think twice about your entourage
Everyone has an opinion but when it comes to choosing your wedding dress, nobody’s opinion matters more than yours. Limit your entourage to those you trust most, and make sure to include a true friend who won’t just say yes to everything but will be honest in a kind way.
Being careful about who you bring to fittings will make your experience so much easier and it’ll help avoid awkward situations.
