7 Tips To Shop For A White Wedding Dress

Wedding Dress South AfricaHello Gorgeous! I know I’ve been a bit quiet on the blog lately. I’m busy working on more inspiration which I’ll soon announce in 3 weeks or so. I’m still working on the finishing touches so watch this space and visit frequently. I have the mother of all announcements to make! So Super Excited!

If your on the hunt for a white wedding dress then don’t go shopping until you’ve read these tips:


1. Budget

Set a budget for your wedding dress and stick to it. When I got married I ended up spending twice as much as I intended to spend, so be careful.

The worst thing you can do is to try on dresses that are way out of your price range. It’s dangerous because it’ll make you consider loans and believe me that’s the last thing you want to do. Don’t start married life with debt.


2. Choose a Partner

Be careful about the number of people you take shopping with you. Too many suggestions will leave you confused. Make sure the people you choose to go with have your best interests at heart. I would suggest taking along your mom, sister or best friend.Wedding Dress South Africa

3. Take Your Time

Don’t be rushed into making a decision. Remember shopping for a wedding dress is not like shopping at Edgards, you can’t simply return it for a refund. If you think you’ve found the perfect wedding dress, you can take time to think about it before making up your mind.


4. Do Your Research

Search the web and magazines for wedding dresses that you like but remember that just because the dress looks fabulous on the model in the magazine doesn’t mean it will look nice on you. Knowing your body shape is the key to finding a dress that flatters your figure.Wedding Dress South Africa

5. Be Flexible

Allow yourself to explore alternative dresses, you might find the style that you think won’t suit you looks gorgeous on.


6. Hidden Costs

Remember alterations, veils and accessories are normally not included in the cost of the wedding dress. Don’t just take the first price they give you, all things are negotiable.Wedding Dress South AfricaWedding Dress South Africa


7. Consider Buying a Dress Online

You might think that I am crazy for suggesting that you purchase your wedding dress online and often times we read about all the horror stories brides-to-be have experienced but a family friend bought her wedding dress online (I have to admit though I was very nervous when her mom told me) but the dress turned out to be amazing. I have to stress that buying a wedding dress online is a risky business and it’s not for the faint hearted.
