Brides-to-be dream of finding the prefect wedding gown; from the look, to how it makes them feel and what their soon-to-be husband will think when she’s coming down the aisle. Check out these tips below to helping you get thru the gown shopping process as stress-free


1 ~ Limit the people that come with you to try on your dress. Too many opinions is overwhelming and can make a difficult decision even harder. Usually your mom and best friend or maid of honor is just enough.

2 ~ Go for a flattering fit. Every dress is not made for every girl, so do you homework and know what dress works on your body type.

3 ~ Bring along a pair of shoes. If you plan on wearing 3″ heels on your wedding day, try on gowns while wearing a pair of shoes with 3″ heels; this way you know where the hem and train will fall.

4 ~ Know what you want to spend on a wedding gown and let your bridal shoppe consultant know what is it. You do not want to fall in love with a dress that costs $10,000 if you only have $2,000 to spend.

5 ~ Comfort is key. You will have your wedding gown on for at least 8-10 hours on your wedding day, so be sure you get something you can sit, dance and be merry in!

These tips can help you easy your way into the wedding dress of your dreams.

Best Wishes & Happy Planning ~
