Tips For Choosing A Wedding Dress

Choosing a wedding dress for your special day should be a happy occasion. With a few simple tips you can save frustration, time and possibly money.

*Schedule a time to go when you can take your time! Don't go if you are in a hurry! You need plenty of time to try on dresses and find the one you want. So don't be rushed!

*Search styles online and in magazines to get an idea of what you like. Also identify your body type and what style will look best on you. That way when you can find a dress that will accent your shape the best! Some styles are slimming and some are not. Try and decide how you want to look and what will make you look your very best.

*Know your price range before you go. Shop around for the best price both online(after trying it on) and actual bridal stores. If you have enough time before you need your dress, you can watch for sales.

*If you want to take someone with you to model for, take your sister, mom, mother in law, friends, or sisters in law. They can give you some constructive advice but ultimately you are the one that gets to choose the dress! Go to lunch and make it a fun memorable day.

*If you are one that likes a challenge and you like vintage, you could buy a dress at the thrift or secondhand store and then remake it! Add on trim, lace, fabric flowers, feathers, or pair a jacket with it. Then get creative. You can design your own wedding gown without sewing the whole dress!

Your dress can be fancy, simple, elegant, formal, etc...most important is that you choose a dress that you like and that will make you feel like a million dollars on your wedding day without having to spend that much!
