Choosing a wedding dress is one of the most exciting parts of planning your wedding day - right along with choosing Indian Creek as your venue. Regardless of whether you are picking something traditional or out of the box, you want to be sure that it perfectly suits you and your style. The first thing you should do is figure out what exactly your style is. Look at some inspiration to decide what color, pattern and design fit the look you are going for.
Something to remember is that the day is about you and your partner. It is totally okay to go outside of the box for all the different elements of your wedding, but especially when it comes to your dress! Consider doing colors other than white and shorter lengths will give you a chic, modern style. This can also be a fun way to match your partner’s outfit as well as your wedding party.
After you have decided what type of style you are looking for, you can begin to consider where you want to start looking. Look at ships around you and if you have the time and money, you can even look at options in other states. Be sure to pick a few locations that will have similar styles to what you are looking for. Be sure to look through their catalog and see what is available to try on to be sure that it is not a waste of a trip. Knowing what you are looking for is also important when trying to explain to the consultant what dresses they should pull for you to try on.
Who to bring
Many brides are unsure of who they want to bring with them to pick out their wedding dress. Some want to keep it small, only them and their mom or best friend. Other brides believe that the more the merrier and invite their whole wedding party! Be sure to determine what you are comfortable with before you begin inviting. Be sure to remember that this whole experience is about you, and you should only invite those who will lift you up and make you feel comfortable during the whole process!
With that being said - who should you bring along?
Typically, most wedding dress experts live by, “less is more.” When trying to make a decision, too many people can actually make it more difficult to make a decision. This is because when there are too many opinions thrown at the bride, they may not be sure what they want to go with. This is why you typically want to keep it as small as possible - to make it easier for YOU!
Another person you want to bring is someone who you’re comfortable with helping you try on. The consultant is there to help you, but if you want a friend or family member to help you zip up and get in and out of dresses, be sure to bring them alongto help you out!
Lastly, some recommend bringing a “wild card” to your dress shopping. Bring someone who doesn't have the same opinion as the rest of your entourage and will be willing to tell it to you straight. Beyond that, you want someone who is looking out for your happiness among the sea of opinions. Oftentimes this is a brother or a close male friend!
