Whether you have been planning your wedding dress since you were a kid or exactly have no idea about what an A-line gown is, planning your dream wedding is an essential part of getting engaged. Even though wedding planning is a stressful affair, but wedding dress shopping does not have to be one. Whatever shopping experience you have, Maggie Sottero has come up with 5 shopping tips to consider when looking for your perfect gown.
What dress you feel best in?
The most important part of finding your dream dress is choosing a gown that feels the most like you and makes you feel best. Learning more about wedding dress silhouettes will never be a waste of time before heading to your bridal shop. There are various fits out there, but the most popular ones you’ll find among all are A-line, ballgown, mermaid, sheath and so on. All these gowns will fit and compliment the bride’s figure differently. Learning beforehand what makes you feel best will save your time.
How soon can it be Delivered?
Most of the brides have one question in mind which keeps up their sleep that is ‘Can this gown be delivered in time for my wedding?’ Most brides shop for gowns about 6-9 months before their wear dates. We recommend starting as early to accommodate delivery and alterations. Whatever your timeline, ask about specific styles with quicker or longer delivery windows to narrow your options!
Comfort vs fit
Whether you are the bride who plans on hiking to their ceremony, or the one who is more focused on showing off those sexy curves, there is a wedding dress out there for everyone. When picturing yourself on your big day, consider what your ideal comfort and fit are.
Wedding dresses are made with expensive and delicate materials, which can limit your range of motion. Can you raise your arms in a dress? Does the skirt feel heavy? Will the fabric breathe well for your season and venue? These factors help you picking up your dress.
What size should you order
If there’s one wedding dress shopping tip we want you to know, it’s that the wedding dress sizes are different than street sizes. Your stylist will most likely be your best resource for deciding what size to order when shopping! One thing you’ll want to expect, however, is weight fluctuations before the big day.
Who to bring along for your appointment?
Trying on your wedding dress can be an exciting, and stressful experience. That’s why you should share this special experience with the supportive and loving people in your life! Having opinion in the appointment from several people can make the experience overwhelming and can quickly break the experience. A good rule of thumb for most appointments is to include your bridal party, and any important family members and in-laws who will add to your special day, and for those that truly have your best interests at heart.
Wedding dress shopping is always an exciting affair, and something you’ll only do once in your lifetime. From knowing your body type to setting a realistic budget, consider these 5 shopping tips when looking for the perfect gown. It might take a few gowns before you pick “The perfect one”, but when you do, it’s an instant you’ll always remember! So schedule your appointment and explore some of the best wedding collections from Maggie Sottero from April 22nd to April 25th, 2022.
In the end, once you have found your dream gown, stop shopping. Now just look forward to showing everyone on the big day.
