Tips for when choosing your Gown

Welcome,

We know the bridal experience can be overwhelming for some, but it can also be enjoyable! Taking a large entourage can lead to, too many confusing opinions, you know the saying “too many cooks can spoil the broth”! Take a few close friends or loved ones that will support you with whatever decision you might make. So you won’t be overwhelmed. This should be a happy experience!

Let your style consultant know what budget you are working with! Know your limit stay within it.. Do diligent research on your favourite designers and know their cost before going into the appointment an end up leaving disappointed. Also, Remember the dreaded taxes and alteration.

Know your wedding theme! Walk with pictures of the dresses you fell in love with while doing your research. I see a lot of brides make this mistake, having an barn wedding and selected a ball gown.

Be conscious of your body type, and know what flatters you! God knows what body contour he gave you, so find a dress that compliments your beauty.

Timeline for dress fitting and alterations! Walk with the proper under garments that you will wear on your wedding day. Over eating on the day of fitting can cause you, not to like the fit or you won’t like what you see in the mirror. Eat healthy!!! You don’t want to order a size 6 and then end up a size 10 or a 12 and be a 14!

Choose accessories that compliments your dress! You don’t want to over kill or under state your gown.

Walk with the shoes you know, you are going to wear down the isle! I see a lot of brides holding up their gowns trying not to trip over it, when her eyes should be on the groom.

Most importantly know that you are fearfully and wonderfully made by God!

Happy Shopping
