Wedding Dress Designs & Events

 
Once again the rush of January is over and we have been super busy finding dream gowns for brides marrying this year, even with wedding dates in 2020! To help all you brides that are just beginning the search for your gown we thought we'd give you 5 handy tips to bear in mind when starting the process to make this time enjoyable....
 
#1. Leave enough time to order your wedding gown to avoid disappointment! Most shops recommend ordering 6 months or more in advance, especially for a bespoke gown! If there isn't time for an ordered in gown you may have the option of buying a sample gown. 
 
#2. We highly recommend making an appointment when visiting bridal shops so you can have a one to one consultation and be sure there is a fitting room available for you to try styles on.
 
#3. Do your research before visiting bridal shops! Think... Have they got dresses that suit my budget? Is it convenient for me to travel to and from fittings? Have they got plenty of sample dresses in my size to try on? Have they got a specific designer I have been looking at? Its always worth giving a bridal shop a quick call just to go over any concerns you may have before making an appointment and this way you can get to know your consultant before meeting them. 
 
#4. Come to an appointment with an open mind. Many brides have a set idea in their mind of what they would like but soon change their mind once trying gowns on.
 
#5. Learn to trust your consultant!! They will know the dresses in their shop better than anyone else. Once they get to know your personality, venue and body shape they’ll help you find the perfect gown. They won't necessarily pull out your exact dress from the get go but she will be able to advise and recommend dresses.  
 

 

#6. And finally, remember...... its YOUR wedding dress! Too many opinions cause too much confusion. Only take your nearest and dearest with you as they will support you and your decision no matter what. Imagine the heart ache when finding THE dress only to hear from the groom's sister mutter "Oh noo, I don't like that dress. I definitely wouldn't go for that." Only ask you close nit circle of friends and family and then ask your extended family and friends to come along to fittings!
