And it’s time to start looking for your wedding dress! You have already said the big “YES” and to be honest now begins one of the most beautiful phases in organizing your wedding. Time for shopping!!!
And because we do not want to find you before unpleasant surprises, we have gathered ten things that you might not even know. Read below and for sure that this article you will be ready to find your wedding dress.
1. BREAKFAST IS THE MOST IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY
Starting shopping day on an empty stomach is the biggest mistake you can make. Trust us the search is difficult and long and you want to have the necessary strength and a clear mind that will not be degraded by the rumbling of your stomach. Be careful though! When we say good breakfast we do not mean to eat like there is no tomorrow. You will be trying on wedding dresses, not sacks!
2. CHOOSE YOUR BRIDAL SQUAD WISELY
Most bridal houses will be happy to welcome you and your group (please do not invite all of your family and friends!). It’s good not to have a lot of people with you. Except that you will not fit all together during the rehearsal, the fewer opinions you hear the more easily you will end up in your choice without panicking from the many different sayings.
3.WEAR A LITTLE BIT MORE MAKEUP THAN USUAL
Buying an official dress, and let alone a bridal dress, is not an easy task. Our advice is on that day to put a little more make up than you get used to. The light in the changing room will not help you, particularly if you are unobtrusive and pale. Use a little more blush and a little extra eyeliner and trust us, your choice will be even easier. Besides, you want to look a bit more like your picture that day!
4. BE PREPARED TO BE NAKED
It is the truth.. Surely a complete stranger will see you almost naked. Don’t get scared! Probably the one who will see you in this situation will be the professional helping you find your wedding dress. You may feel uncomfortable and want to try it yourself, but trust us that you will definitely need help to get into your wedding dress. And you certainly do not want to destroy it while you are trying to put it on. Stop being ashamed and let the pros do their job.
5. TRUST THE PROFESSIONAL
She may not be your mum or your best friend but surely knows more than both of them. She has seen hundreds of brides before you with all body types and knows what suits on every bride. Of course you will say your opinion and how you dream wedding dress is, but you better be open in suggestions… most probably you will end up with the wedding dress the professional will suggest.
6. SIZES ON WEDDING DRESS ARE NOT LIKE ZARA
Don’t panic! We don’t mean to start a hard diet or get some extra weight to ft better in the wedding dress. You are not in Zara where you know your size and you buy without trying on. Just find the dress that makes you feel like a princess and let the transformations to the ones that know better.
7. TRY ON WEDDING DRESS STYLES THAT ARE OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE
You hate mermaid wedding dresses and you definitely don’t want a ball gown dress because you think you’ll look like a wedding cake. Not a strapless one, and no embroideries because they don’t fit your personality. You are absolutely right! You won’t choose something that is not you. What we advise you is to be bold and get out of your comfort zone because you might end up realizing that you look so good in a trumpet wedding dress.
8. AN OTHER BRIDE MIGHT WEAR YOUR WEDDING DRESS
Let’s be honest girls! You are not the only one planning a wedding this summer! So, there might be some other future brides to be that will try on your own wedding dress. And you might do the same with someone else’s wedding dress. If you bother so much, you might consider tailor making your wedding dress!
9. DON’T STAND! WALK AROUND!
Yes, you love the way you look and you can’t stop looking your self in the mirror! But you have to walk around in the dress. You won’t be standing on your wedding day! You will be dancing and moving around! And you want to know how that feels in the wedding dress you are going to choose.
10. YOU MIGHT NOT CRY
Shocking! We know, but it the truth. Not every girl cries when she puts on the wedding dress. Every bride is different, no wrong.. every person is different, and it really means nothing if you don’t cry. It is perfectly normal as it is if you cry a river.
