A wedding is a lifetime experience and is every woman’s dream to have one.
But when it comes to getting a wedding gown, every woman wants that ‘perfect dream wedding gown. It is usually overwhelming, because of the varieties of wedding gowns to choose from.
Here is how you can streamline your search for that perfect dream wedding gown for your big day.
START THE SEARCH MONTHS BEFORE YOUR WEDDING DATE
According to a quote from the co-owner of Kleinfeld, Mara Urschel; “Designer gowns should be ordered six to nine months in advance to ensure there is enough time for delivery and alterations.” It takes a longer time to get a wedding gown ready, you have to plan months ahead for that perfect wedding gown because you might customize it and as well add some beadings which take longer to get done.
YOUR BUDGET MUST BE REALISTIC
Courtney Lutkus from Simply Radiant Events, from one of his quotes, said; “Just because you have $1,500 set aside for your wedding dress doesn’t necessarily mean that you can buy a $1,500 gown.” There are several factors that should be considered when budgeting for that perfect wedding gown, such as tax, shipping if you are not buying offline, and alterations because most fabric stores place a 50% deposit on their wedding gowns whether you are paying online or offline. Most women become devastated when they find that perfect wedding gown but don’t have the available capital to purchase it due to an unrealistic budget.
GET FAMILIAR WITH YOUR WEDDING GOWN SILHOUETTES BEFORE SHOPPING
Familiarising yourself with what you want helps so much when it comes to getting that perfect dream wedding gown. “Before you get lost in the blizzard of gown glossary terms, consider the basic outline of the dress,” according to Bianca Sparbanie of B Wedding & Event Planning. Selecting the silhouette you want to wear helps to clear out the huge number of gown choices.
LIMIT THE NUMBER OF WEDDING GOWN SHOPPING ENTOURAGE
This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, taking every one of your friends is exciting but the more people you take, the greater the chance that you will end up overwhelmingly confused about that perfect dream wedding gown you want.
Conclusively, choose the wedding gown that feels right for you and not for someone else. If unsure whether that perfect wedding gown is, add a veil to aid you to get yourself in the wedding day mood.
