3 Tips To Picking A Wedding Dress

Relationships & Family Blog

Your wedding dress is something that you and many of your guests will remember vividly for years to come after the ceremony. For this reason, ultimately picking the right one for your big day is probably the one decision that every bride-to-be spends the most time thinking about in the months before the decision to made. But it doesn't have to be something that you obsess over to the point of stressing yourself out. Here are 3 tips every future bride should keep in mind when heading to the bridal store for the first time.

Sit Down, Move Around

Typically when a bride tries on a new potential wedding dress, she'll pose in front of a mirror with a bridesmaid or two and look at the dress from all angles. While this is good, don't stop there. In addition to walking back and forth in the dress, also take the time to make sure you can sit in the dress comfortably. If there is a corset or another factor that is making the dress too uncomfortable, see if an adjustment can be made. Remember, this is something you are going to be wearing until late at night if your reception is going long. Don't just picture the actual ceremony, make sure the dress is comfortable enough that you can handle wearing it all day and into the evening.

Forget About What You Saw on TV

Bridal-themed television shows have been popular for years now and that's not likely to change anytime soon. Real life, however, is not the same as reality television. Some women often feel like their wedding dress is something that should bring them to tears. But there doesn't have to be a magical made-for-TV moment to find the right wedding dress. Looks are important but above all, make sure the dress is comfortable and within your budget for the wedding.

Don't Forget to Add Up the Accessories and Add-Ons

A common mistake some brides make when picking a dress is thinking about only the dress itself when looking at the price tag. A decent wedding dress ensemble includes more than the dress itself. This includes things like belts, veils, and headpieces. Any custom alterations you ask for may also cost money. So don't just go right to the dresses at the high end of your budget. Step down a tier so there is money in the budget left over to handle all needed accessories or adjustments.

A wedding dress is something that can create memories for a lifetime. It's important to find a dress that looks great on you, but keep in mind that there is more to it than that. Don't forget to walk and sit in the dress in addition to standing in it in order to make sure it is truly comfortable. Forget about what you saw on reality television, and focus on getting a dress that meets your own unique needs. Finally, keep in mind that when buying a wedding dress, you'll also likely buy additional accessories and need alterations that can quickly add up.
