Top 10 tips for Wedding Dress Shopping..
1. Come in open minded!
Many of our brides leave our shop with something totally different to what they had in mind when they first come in, so its always worth trying something completely different. If you’re unsure ask one of our consultants for advice, what have you got to lose?
2. Bring those who’s opinion you value the most!
Your wedding dress should be the most important dress you should ever wear, right? So everything has to be perfect! But having 10 different opinions can stray you away from what you actually want. So bring your ‘trusted few’ with you to help you make an honest, important and amazing decision.
3. Start early!
If you’re a picky shopper or not quite sure of what you want, it’s never too early to start looking for ‘the dress’. Putting it off for too long can limit your choice and you might make a decision you regret later.Plus! once you have YOUR dress this will enable you to set your themes and colours for bridesmaids, menswear, flowers etc.
4. Flexible Bridesmaids!
Planning your wedding is not an easy job to do, especially if you want every little detail to be perfect! That’s where your Bridesmaids come in, to be great support in the build up to the biggest day of your life so having flexible bridesmaids is very important to attend fittings and measures.
This ones a biggy! If you’ve been planning your wedding for years and have already chosen the dress your probably dying to get measured, but getting measured too early can cause problems if you want to lose weight for your big day. It may also cost more in alterations, the ideal time to get measured is 6 months before the wedding!
6. ENJOY IT!
We appreciate that planning a wedding is not easy but getting married is the happiest day of your life and picking the perfect dress should be a fun experience! So enjoy it bring those you love the most(and who’s opinion you value) and make a girly day of it!
7. Its YOUR wedding!
When choosing your dress you will listen to the opinions of your loved ones..BUT remember that it’s your wedding and your day! So if you fall in love with your gown have faith in your own decisions! Because when you know, YOU know!!
At Just Perfect we have something for everyone so if your a Bride on a budget don’t worry! Try and avoid trying on gowns that might be out of your price range in the fear that you fall madly in love with a dress that is more than you want to spend. But we do offer payment plans so you may be able to stretch the budget a little. It is your wedding after all. But if you have a budget of £800 then looking at £2000 gowns isn’t going to help.
9. Try on as many as you like!
Remember there is no perfect number of dresses to try on! If you fall madly in love with the first dress you try on that’s fine, if you fall in love with the 50th dress you’ve tried on that’s fine too! There’s no telling when that ‘the one’ moment will happen and we let you try on as many gowns as you’d like!
