A&Be — coming SOON!
Now that you know about some of the best shops around town, we thought we would give you a few quick tips too when it comes to buying that dreamy dress.
Remember your budget
We’ve seen it time and time again when brides fall in love with dresses that cost as much as a down payment on a house. There are gorgeous wedding dresses for every budget so before going in to try on anything, have a price point in mind and stick with dresses UNDER that price. You will find something exquisite no matter what.
Shop Sooner (at least 9 months out if you can)
Believe it or not, wedding dresses take a long time to be ready! A typical turnaround time for ordering a dress and getting it to you (before alterations) is anywhere from 9-24 months! If you have the time to plan and order before the wedding day, use it. Waiting until the last minute to dress shop will slim your options down significantly and usually result in a dress price tag plus major alteration costs too.
Make a few appointments
Different shops have different dresses. Sure you may find THE dress at your first stop, but be open minded to trying different stores and different dresses. The right dress is out there, don’t be afraid to look!
Call ahead to ask about specific dresses
If you have done your homework or fallen in love with a dress you have seen online or in social media, try figuring out what store has the dress before heading out hoping to find it. If you call ahead of time you can know where it is located and it will be ready for a try on when you’re ready!
Pick your entourage carefully
Picking out your wedding dress is such a special experience. When deciding who to take with you on these appointments, think about who will make you feel great and who will make you smile. You want to surround yourself with people who will help make the experience a great one. Keep it small if you want to too. This is a day about YOU! Don’t forget it!
Okay lovebirds, we hope you have a wonderful time shopping for your wedding dress! Enjoy every minute and fall in love with something just right for YOU!
Until then, sending love and cheers your way!
