TOP TIPS FOR WEDDING DRESS SHOPPING PART 4
THINK ABOUT ACCESSORIES – THEY CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING
If you are planning on wearing a veil, or a hairpiece, think about trying those on with the dresses you like. More simple dresses especially can look much more bridal when you put the accessories such as a diamanté sash or a sparkly veil with them, and you might feel that a more detailed dress doesn’t work so well with the veil you’ve set your heart on.
Unfortunately, there are still a number of shops who won’t let you take photos. But more and more places are willing to let you do so. So take pictures if you can – often customers still make a decision on the day, but looking at the photo rather than at the image in the mirror can give you a different perspective and help you to make your decision.
DON’T BE AFRAID TO SAY YES – EVEN IF IT’S THE FIRST DRESS / SHOP
Over the years I’ve seen many brides get totally overwhelmed by the dress buying process because they tried on too many, turning what should be a fun experience into a chore. On average, brides visit 2 shops and try 12 dresses before they choose. Many pick the first dress they tried. Trust your gut. Don’t get pushed into it, but don’t be afraid to make a quick choice if you know it’s The One.
Most importantly, you should enjoy the process of deciding on your wedding dress because (hopefully) you won’t do it again. Follow the tips above and we hope they’ll help it be an enjoyable experience.
