Have inspiration pictures…

If you have a specific style in mind, have a few reference pictures with you when you come for an initial appointment to find your wedding dress. Make sure your bride tribe is on the same page with your personal style and which silhouettes look best on you.

…But keep an open mind

You might have a specific dress style in mind when you start looking for your dream dress. Inspiration is good, however, very often the bride ends up choosing a dress style that she wasn’t even considering. You might go in looking for a lace dress and end up with a silk dress. We advise you to keep an open mind from the beginning and try on many different styles to determine which is the best for your body shape, suits your needs and makes you feel gorgeous, confident and comfortable.

Do your research

Some brides allocate the job of booking bridal dress appointments to their friends or family members. In this case, make sure that they know your budget and the style you’re after so that you avoid wasting your precious time.
