Top 5 tips to choose your perfect wedding dress:

Though buying your dream wedding dress consume time, effort and cost, if you plan well and start shopping early, it helps to buy good one at affordable price. Decide if you want to go for traditional or trendy one before begin your search.

Start early: Start your search well ahead of the time to see through various options, design, colours before finalizing your dream wedding dress.

Consult professional: During your search for the perfect wedding dress, get an appointment with consultant to get their view. They will have more ideas to suit your body shape, be open to receive their advice and consider them in your final selection. Don’t bind your search within a set of rules, always be flexible. There are dresses which don’t looks great on hanger but looks good when you wear on and vice versa. Don’t just go with latest trend or fashion, if it not suits you. Don’t be hesitant to ask all questions in your mind on wedding dress to the consultant.

Keep the budget: Always keep a budget for your wedding dress, it is not necessary to spend big amount to find your perfect wedding dress. Many stores have big discount sales once or twice in a year to push the inventory, if you can accommodate those dates then try out. Visit online stores and signup to get new design arrivals and discounts. Finally, ask for discount, nothing harm in asking fair price.

Forget the numbers: Don’t go by the numbers for the size but look for the fit. The size differs with different models and brand, you may need to buy higher size then your normal dress. Don’t select tight fit because you want to reduce weight before the event day. Keep it simple, ignore the numbers and go for the one that fits when you buy your wedding dress.

Take the crew: The crew could be your friends, cousins, mom, sisters or any well wishers, take them with you when you go for the shopping. Make sure to do the trials multiple times, walk around to see the comfort and get their views before finalizing your wedding dress.
