Wedding Tips

Do your research before you make an appointment.††

Bridal store retailers are experts when it comes to helping a bride-to-be find something special that satisfies her style, budget and body type, but itís good to have an idea of what it is that you want. Go online and look through catalogues.† Get an idea of the different looks you could have for your dress, find out the different basic styles (A-line, Mermaid, etc.) and check out the various pairings of materials.

It's a good idea to have a budget in mind for what you want to spend on your dream dress.††

The costs of dresses depend on everything from materials, style or even colour. Setting a budget will also help narrow down the number of gowns you have to try on which could make your search less of a hassle.

Keep in mind the season and setting of your wedding.††

If your big day is taking place in the hot summer sun, youíre not going to want to have a dress with many heavy layers or long sleeves that will have you dripping sweat throughout the ceremony.†

Once you've found a dress you know will make you feel gorgeous and ecstatic as you walk down the aisle, make sure you're prepared to keep it stunning.††

Some things you canít control, but must be able to quickly fix so itís a good idea to have a little sewing kit with you on your big day in case a button pops or a string rips off from the bustle underneath.

When you go to your appointment at a boutique, don't bring too many people along.††

A sea of comments and opinions from bridesmaids and family can overwhelm your decision and make it much more difficult to stick to a design or style that catches your eye. Try to limit your entourage to a maximum of three people if possible.
