Tips On How To Buy The Right Dress

Buying a wedding dress can be a hectic task but with a little time and effort, you could walk out of a store with a magical dress that makes you feel like a princess. Your wedding is the highlight of your love life and you deserve to look absolutely mind-blowing. Here are some tips to make your selection easier.

Plan, Plan And Plan!

You need to have a clear idea of what you want. You need to plan ahead on what type of dress and what style best suits you. Your bridal outfit will be the centrepiece of the evening so decide carefully on what suits your body type. Do a little research before selecting a dress. You could get some ideas from magazines, celebrity weddings and the internet. You should have a clear idea of what fabric you want and the amount of work and embellishment needed to add the extra sparkle. There are so many options to choose from.

Do Not Give Into Pressure

It shouldn’t necessarily feel like you’re obligated to buy a dress if you try it on. Do not say yes until you are fully satisfied. If you feel pressurized do not give into it, take your time and try on a few more options until you find the perfect one.

Opinions From Peers

Mirrors are not always your best friend. Select a wedding shopping party to help you out, but make sure it’s small and the group has a good sense of fashion. Take opinions and remarks while you try on dresses but at the same time stay true to yourself. It won’t be right to have a dress if you’re not comfortable with it. Take photos from different angles and refer to them as specimens.


Wear shoes similar to what you are planning to wear on the big day for the fitting. This would in turn help you get the right length for your dress and would make sure you don’t trip on your outfit.

Move In It

Dance around, bend to pick up something and swirl! Your ensemble should help you move.  If the attire is too tight it would make it difficult to mingle around the ceremony. It is always better to get a bigger size than to get a smaller size. It is your day and you need to enjoy it without tugging at your gown.


One important thing to remember is to get your measurements taken by a professional. The wrong measurements could end in a disaster. Stick to the same professional for any further alterations and adjustments.

Try Many But Not Too Many

It is important to try on many gowns before you find your dream dress but too many would make you forget what you were looking for in the first place. If you are confused and muddled, take a break. Filter the ones you liked most, keep them aside and then try on more. If it gets too much, you can always come back the next day.

Without determination there is no perfection, so put on your game face and be ready. Happy shopping!
