It is the moment that you have waited your whole life for… picking out the perfect gown! We all have a picture in our minds of what we our dress would like and now the day has finally come. We have compiled our top 5 tips that we feel will help you embark on this exciting journey:
1. Do yourself up a little.
Do not do a full-fledged face of make-up (ahem, foundation stains), but it does pay to arrive at our shop with your toned-down hair and makeup. It’ll give you a much better picture of how the dress will look when all the moving parts come together.
2. Shoe structure is key.
Already have the shoes you’re wearing to your wedding? Great, bring ’em with you! If you don’t, it’s OK, but note that it is key to bring footwear you know will be similar of the footwear that you are going for, both in heel height and in silhouette. Various shoe structures can dramatically alter the way gown falls, especially hems.
3. Wear or bring the right undergarments.
First, wear undergarments (yes, you would be surprised!). And without wearing proper undergarments to try on wedding dresses, the trip can pretty much be considered a waste. After all, there’s not a woman alive who hasn’t experienced the transformative powers of the right shapewear or bra.
If you’re going shopping without a clear-cut picture of what type of dress you’d like, bring a few different options!
4. Skip the entourage.
Too many cooks in the kitchen can completely damage the experience. Bring the people who matter the most to you! We suggest bringing one or two people who know you and your style well, and who are calm, honest, and modern.
5. Have fun!
This is a special day for you so don’t forget to have fun! It is a memorable experience and you would hate to look back and regret this special time.
