Wedding dress shopping is one of the most exciting moments for many brides to be, but it can also be very overwhelming. You might have a lot of questions; would it be convenient to bring a bra to the fitting? Are there any additional expenses to think about in advance? Review our helpful tips before slipping into your first dress.
1. PICK 1 OR 2 PEOPLE TO ACCOMPANY YOU
We always warn against bringing along too many people when searching for a dress. Gather only a couple of your dearest friends or even just your mom to help you begin the search. This way, you can find the dress that truly suits you and your style, and you won’t feel overwhelmed by a ton of different opinions.
2. EVERYTHING ADDS UP
Keep in mind, your wedding dress budget includes more than just the cost of the dress. You’ll also need a veil or headpiece, jewelry, shoes, etc. Lingerie, undergarments, and alterations to the dress should also be taken into account. Calculate these expenses before you determine your final budget.
