How to Pick the Perfect Wedding Gown

How to Pick the Perfect Wedding Gown

Picking the right wedding gown can make any bride feel stressed out.

Let’s face it, how can you possibly enjoy the rest of your planning until you have had your “Say MY Dress” moment?  And since every bride-to-be wants to look and feel her best on her wedding day, we have some great advice to get you going. So sit back and read on.

First off, there are a few things to consider before making such an important purchase as your gown for your big day. Questions like “what style is best for my wedding dress?” “How much should I spend on a bridal gown?” Or “Is buying a bridal dress on-line safe”?

Wedding dress styles are constantly changing (now faster than ever) your dream dress you saw in a wedding magazine last year, may be long gone and a dream of the past now. Styles change fast, and so be sure if you see something you like, you move fairly quickly and work with a good bridal shop who can get you what you want.

When wedding dress shopping, you should also consider the time of year you plan to get married, if it will be indoors or outdoors, and the venue space and style... For example you wont want a long train if you are having a garden wedding. Likewise, a super casual wedding dress will look out of place in a church. So be sure to choose your wedding venue location first, and then move on to a gown that will look and feel great on your big day. As for buying on-line, we highly discourage it.  We have talked to many brides as well as bridal gown shop owners and heard plenty of “Knock off Nightmares”! While it certainly can save money and be a “cheaper” option to buy on-line, there are several important factors to consider when deciding on taking this type of gamble on your big day.

The majority of these on-line dress sellers are operating illegally many times from overseas sweatshops. They knock off designers work for pennies on the dollar.  Colors are not what’s pictured, zippers get stuck and break, seams are crooked, fabric is stiff or cheap and see through. Sometimes, the dress never arrives at all, arrives late, or if it does is completely unrecognizable. Refunds (even via paypal) take months. Meanwhile the innocent bride-to-be gets “left at the altar” by these companies. Be sure to engage with reputable dress shops that have original dresses  and you can also find sample sales and discounted styles.

Our experienced wedding dress vendors can help you pick the perfect dress for your wedding day.
