5 Don’ts of Wedding Dress Shopping
Shopping for things such as underwear and lingerie is often forgotten about when it comes to a wedding. However, there are just so many things that need to be purchased when it comes to a wedding. One of the most important things is of course the actual wedding dress because that is what makes the day special. Every bride wants to look her best because usually they only have one special day and it needs to be absolutely perfect. However, what are the five don’ts of wedding dress shopping?
Don’t Bring Thousands of People
Whether you are shopping for a wedding dress or bridal lingerie, you never want to have too many people with you. Yes, opinions count but at the same time, having too many opinions can be often confusing and frustrating. Instead of bringing twenty or thirty people when out shopping for a wedding dress, try to bring only your mum, best friend and two close friends; that way you have a few opinions. However, if you really wanted to, you could just invite your mother and bridesmaid along, that way you get the opinion of those who matter the most.
Don’t Forget To Try the Dress On
Thousands of brides fall in love with a dress and jump in feet first and buy it without actually trying it on first. This is a big mistake because a dress may be the bride’s size but that doesn’t mean it willactually fit. Different material can often determine how comfortable a dress is because some finer materials are very clingy and feel too tight. Like trying on new underwear, many brides don’t try on their wedding dresses before they buy it which is a big no.
Don’t Wear Underwear You Hate
A big problem when dress shopping is that you don’t always know the type of bridal lingerie you’ll wear on the big bad and wear normal items. However, those under garments might not actually work with a dress. Some garments can be too small and might actually change the shape of the bride so instead of wearing old items, wear new ones. It’s important to wear something close to what will be worn on the wedding day so that the bride can be sure the garments will compliment the figure on the day with the dress.
Don’t Choose the First Dress Seen
There are thousands of beautiful dresses out there but many first time brides make the mistake of choosing the first dress they see without actually looking at what else is out there. It may be the first dress is perfect but sometimes that isn’t the case. There is no harm in looking at other wedding dresses while keeping the first idea reserved somewhere just in case the first is the right one.
However, just choosing the first dress being looked at can often be a big mistake. Remember, the dress has to be comfortable to wear with bridal lingerie as well as feel right to wear too.
Don’t Rush To Make a Choice
Many brides struggle to make a choice and end up rushing things. That is a bad idea because it could mean they haven’t found the right dress. Dresses can be put on hold or reserved in some stores so that a bride can have time to carefully think whether the dress is right for them. Making a rush decision can be terrible for a bride, like choosing the wrong underwear to wear with dresses, it’s never good.
Make the Right Choice
Anyone can find they make mistakes when shopping for their wedding dress; however, it’s such a confusing time. Many people do struggle but they don’t need to make costly mistakes, not when they know what to be wary of. For every bride out there, make the right choice and get the perfect lingerie and the perfect wedding dress!
