Every bride dreams about the wedding dress that they will wear as they walk down the aisle to their waiting groom. Even though you have a vision for your dress, that doesn’t mean it will be easy to find a dress that meets all of your expectations. Here at Fairytale Brides we know finding the perfect wedding dress can often feel like a daunting task. This means that you need to be prepared before you begin the task of dress shopping.  A lot more goes into finding the perfect wedding dress than you even realise.  This means that good advice can set you up for success and ensure that you do find the wedding dress of your dreams.

Here are a few of the best tips that you need to follow when you are looking for the perfect wedding dress:

Know What You Want to Spend

One of the things that you need to consider from the start is the amount that you want to spend on your wedding dress. Not only do wedding dresses vary in size and style, but they also come with wide ranging price tags. Some wedding dresses can be a major expense if you are buying a dress from a top designer. This means that from the start you need to identify what your budget is exactly. This is important because it helps you narrow down your choices. Knowing what dresses are within budget means you will not waste time trying on dresses out of your price range. Setting a realistic budget is what you should start with when you are ready to go dress shopping.

Stick to One Style

If you start the dress shopping process by trying on dresses that are very different in style, you can have a hard time finding the right dress. This means that you should choose a style that fits you best and not go too far away from that style. If you are going to try on a dress that is different, be sure that you see it in a unique way and do not compare it to the other styles. You can start to confuse yourself and become overwhelmed if you try on too many different styles of dresses at once. This means that keeping things simple is best by sticking with one style each time that you try on wedding dresses.


Wear the Right Underwear

When you are trying on wedding dresses you want to be sure that you are getting a real feel for how the dress will fit. This means that you need to be wearing the right undergarments when you go wedding dress shopping. Before you even begin the process of shopping for a dress, you need to make sure that you have chosen the undergarments that you will be wearing on your special day. You should also be sure that you are wearing heels that are similar in height to what you will be wearing on your wedding day. This will allow you to get a true feel for how your dress will look and fit.

Consider Your Shape

The thing that matters most when you are picking out a wedding dress is that you are comfortable and confident. This means that you need to choose a style of dress that fits you best. Any trouble areas that you might have can be hidden if you choose a dress that accentuates your best shape. This means that you can hide any flaws that you may have if you pick a dress that is just for you. Always think about your shape and what styles are the most flattering when you are looking for the perfect dress. No matter what your shape may be, there is a dress that will look flattering on you.

Fabric and Season

When you are trying to choose the fabric that you want your dress to be made out of, it is a good idea to consider the season. This means that if you are getting married during winter you could choose a heavier fabric or a faux fur jacket that makes your bridal look that much more glamorous. The possibilities are endless and you can play around with fabrics as long as you pay attention to the season.

Take Notes

You always want to make sure that you try on potential wedding dresses a few times. This means that you need to take notes on the dresses that you wear and what styles you like most. You need to think about what you really want in a dress and organising your jumbled thoughts on paper can help you to come to a more clear decision.
