Four Unexpected Tips For Wedding Dress Shopping

Posted on: 29 January 2018

Shopping for wedding dresses for sale is one of the most important tasks of the preparations for your wedding day. For this reason, it's important to take every detail of the process seriously. This includes all of the important tips that you might've heard before, such as trying on many dresses before making your choice and bringing along trusted friends and family to help make your decision. However, there is more to it than this. Here are four unexpected tips you might not have thought of:

  1. Schedule an Appointment: Many people don't realize that the best option is to schedule an appointment rather than walk in, especially if you are shopping on a weekend when wedding dress boutiques tend to be the busiest. You might think that a wedding dress boutique is ready for walk-ins or you might just think you are doing the shopping casually for the day, but it's much better to schedule time with the wedding dress boutique to ensure that you receive the attention that you deserve, especially if you end up finding the dress you want. 
  2. Do Everything Early: When you do schedule your appointment, you want to do so early, pretty much as soon as the boutique is open for the day. This is because the professionals working there are going to be refreshed, you are going to be refreshed, and it's going to make for a much more pleasant experience. This isn't the only thing you should do early. You should also plan to shop for a dress early because, most likely, you will need the dress altered. In fact, it's said that around 95% of wedding dresses will need alterations even if the dress seems to fit perfectly. 
  3. Wear the Right Bra and Underwear: In between trying on dresses, you are going to see yourself in your bra and underwear a lot. To boost confidence in yourself, you are going to want to wear a bra and underwear that goes well with wearing a wedding dress. Wearing the wrong undergarments can also hinder the appearance of the wedding dress when you have it on, which can be really discouraging at times, as well. 
  4. Eat Before, But Keep it Light: You don't want to show up to your appointment hungry. You also want to eliminate the off-chance that you get too hungry during the process that you start to rush through it. The best thing to do would be to eat something about an hour before, but keep it light. If you overeat, you will probably bloat, and this can affect your confidence when trying on dresses. 

With these four tips in mind combined with all other tips, you've heard of can really ensure that you have a better wedding dress shopping experience that can eliminate the chance that you need to go shopping more than once.
