• DON’T rule anything out
    • You may think you know exactly what you want in your dress, but there’s no way to really be sure until you try on dresses. Trying on dresses is the best way to find the style that best fits your body type. Even if you think you’ll look terrible in a certain dress give it a chance. You never know that dress that looked horrible on the rack may be the most beautiful thing you’ve ever tried on.
  • DON’T be afraid to hurt someone’s feelings…
    • You can’t go shopping for your wedding dress alone so of course you have to bring an entourage. Make sure those lucky side-chicks don’t overpower you when it comes to making a decision. If you love a dress but they hate it don’t be afraid to tell them to back off. Also remember that when they’ve talked you into putting on the dress that you know isn’t right for you. It’s your big day so don’t let anyone ruin it!
  • DON’T try on a dress WAY outside of your price range
    • You walk into the store and BOOM there it is, the dress of your dreams. The only issue is it’s about three grand outside of your budget. There’s absolutely no way you could ever afford it but you can’t help but try it on. NO! Suck it up and keep on looking. The minute you try on that dress and fall in love you will be crushed when you have to come to the realization that you can’t afford it. Save yourself some heartache and focus on finding a dress within your budget that you can fall in love with.
  • DON’T go looking for a dress at the last minute
    • Wedding dresses usually take 6 to 8 months to be ordered and then of course you have to include alterations which can’t be done overnight. Save yourself some stress and start looking ASAP! The chances of you finding a dress that fits perfectly and is able to be taken home on the spot is going to be slim to none. There is absolutely no reason you should be stressing about your wedding dress weeks before. So grab your girls and get to shopping now!
