All girls dream of a perfect wedding and of wearing a dream dress that is just jaw-dropping-ly gorgeous. We chart out the most common mistakes women make when they go wedding dress shopping.
1. Bridal shopping with a group.
Just because your wedding dress is literally the most important dress you’ll wear, it does not mean you travel to the salons with an entourage in tow. This results in mixed opinions and confusion. From well-meaning advice to badly disguised snarky comments, you will have it all and not know what to do.
All you need is your mother and a sister or your best friend or two to make the right decision. Honest suggestions should be your priority when choosing wedding dress shopping companions.
2. Shopping much before the big do.
The first thing that strikes you when you think of your wedding is your wedding dress. But that doesn’t imply that you shop way too early for it. This comes with a host of problems – you love a dress but can’t buy it yet and you feel frustrated, you love a dress but can’t buy it yet because you haven’t decided on the theme of the wedding plus decor and bridesmaids’ outfits colours and many more things that you need to consider before booking your wedding gown.
Wait at least till you set the date and then go dress shopping.
3. Trying on a zillion wedding gowns.
The more dresses you try, the more confusing it gets and in the end some brides just get overwhelmed and are not able to make a sound decision even when they find ‘the one’ dress. To avoid all the overwhelm, simply try on 7-10 dresses at max and don’t forget your exact preferences like perhaps princess style wedding gowns when you finalize one.
