Many weddings are currently being put on hold due to the Corona virus lockdowns. But that doesn´t mean that as a bride, you´ll have to put off choosing the perfect wedding dress for your wedding.
Today´s post will give you a quick overview on the simple ways you can do to start scouting for that wedding dress, even if you may have to make most of the planning and scouting from the safety of your home.
Some women dream up their wedding dress down to the lace shoulders and sequined belt when they are six-years-old and others don’t give that gown they will wear “once” until the day comes when someone is in front of them on one knee asking them to plan an elaborate party to pledge their love to one another.
Finding the “perfect” gown can be downright stressful on top of everything else that is supposed to go right on that special day. Most women have never tried on a dress before and it just might be the most expensive piece of clothing any woman will ever own or put on their body. So, the pressure is definitely on while wedding dress shopping to say “yes” to the dress. I mean there is a whole TLC show dedicated to the process.
The dress sets the tone for the wedding and every single eye who RSVPd is on that one dress. And now it seems that brides have more than one dress for the big day and everyone’s budget keeps expanding whether they want it to or not. A Nordstrom coupon code can help ease the stress of spending your life savings on one dress, but unfortunately, it won’t pick the dream dress for you. To find that perfect dress, some work is required.

1. Find What You Like
Rip out pages from magazines at the doctor’s office, click through online stores, save Instagram and Pinterest posts, even look at celebrity trends. Try to find a connecting theme with all of the dresses you liked. Were you drawn to lace and a sweetheart neckline? Or was it open backs with little sleeves? Try to find a couple of common traits of styles you love and bring those ideas to your appointment.
2. Be Open-Minded
Though you have what you liked on hand, still go into an appointment with an open mind. Consultants will constantly say that they see brides-to-be come in every day with a certain dress in their head and then instead, fall for a dress that is completely different and they thought they would never consider it.
3. Don’t Get Caught Up in Sizing
Bridal sizing will mean your gown will often be two sizes larger than your normal clothes. No one will know the number beside you and whoever sold you the dress, so don’t stress it. All you need to know is that you look beautiful and will be a vision walking down the aisle.
4. Figure Out Your Budget
Money is uncomfortable to talk about but it will save on the heartache of trying on a dress that you just absolutely love and then not being able to even breathe on it. Also, figure out who is paying for the gown before you go to the appointment. If someone else is paying make sure you get the hard numbers on your limit so you can stay within the budget or pay the difference to get what you want.
These are just a few tips on how to find your perfect wedding dress. The biggest tip of all is for you to love it. If you love it, then it is perfect for you. Also, once you have found it, stop shopping! Just start looking forward to the big day and get other things in order. Whatever you pick and whatever you love is perfect for you!
