Wedding Dress Shopping Tips

Finding your wedding dress should be fun, not stressful. Try these tips to keep things sailing smoothly!

  • Ignore The Tag Size – Bridal sizes are based on European sizes, which means the size numbers are anywhere from 1-4 sizes bigger than your U.S. size, and often varies by designer. It’s also not uncommon to need clamps or extenders for the sample dresses. Don’t sweat the number you see on the tag, just focus on what feels and looks good!
  • Select Your Shopping Party Carefully – You’ll want the complete support of your entourage. Honesty is important, but at the end of the day it’s your dress and your decision.
  • Go With Your Gut – You want to feel your best on your wedding day, so even if every one of your shopping companions loves a dress if you aren’t 100% sold on it don’t buy it! Your perfect gown is out there!
