To assist you on the quest for your dream wedding dress，And how to shop you get there? For the lowdown, read on!
When you finally step into the dressing room, try to keep an open mind. If the salesperson brings you something she says you must try, try it — even if you detest the way it looks on the hanger. Many a bride has ended up waltzing down the aisle in a wedding gown the salesperson had to persuade her to try on. And while certain styles work best on certain body types, it helps to try on all different kinds of wedding dresses, and then decide what shape and style you look and feel best in.
One of the biggest misconceptions about bridal gowns is that they only come as is. The truth is, most wedding gowns can be ordered in alternative forms. So if you like the bodice of one and the skirt of another, ask to have them put together to form your dream dress (provided, of course, that both gowns come from the same designer). And don’t be afraid to ask to have embellishments like bows and beads added or removed. Keep in mind, though, that the more you stray from the original design, the more it will cost you in the end.
Something else to remember: You didn’t get engaged on your first date, and, likewise, you shouldn’t buy the first wedding dress you try on. Give yourself options and lots of time to think by shopping more — and elsewhere — before you buy. Even after you think you’ve found your unique wedding dress take a day to be absolutely sure it’s the one for you. Since bridal gowns are custom-made, most salons put a no-return policy in their contracts.
And lastly, always trust your instincts. Ask yourself, can I really see myself walking down the aisle swathed in this gown? Is this how I pictured myself looking as a bride? If not, take it off and move on. But if the gown passes muster, take a deep breath, smile at your reflection, and breathe a huge sigh of relief — your search is over!
