Helpful tips to use when looking for your Dream Wedding Dress.
The Wedding Circle Wedding Dress Tips!
Set up an album and narrow down to six (6) of your most favorite styles. Be sure to show these to the bridal consultant who helps you at the bridal salon that you visit.
The first and most important thing is to BE OPEN MINDED. With so much ruching and draping on the wedding dresses, most gowns do not hang well on the hangers. So, you need to try them on. Your bridal consultant will be making suggestions on silhouettes that will look good on your figure type so, BE OPEN MINDED and try them on. Some brides do not want to deviate from their “Dream” wedding dress photos. When they try on dresses that are like their photos, they are not happy with it. This often happens because depending on your body type, the styles in your photos may be the wrong silhouette for your body type. Frustration will set in if you are not willing to try other silhouettes. Your bridal consultant can help you with this. Call us at 808-592-8888 for an appointment and I will be happy to work with you to find your “Dream” wedding dress!
Setting a budget for your wedding dress is important. You do not want to fall in love with a wedding dress that is far beyond what you can afford. It just makes sense to set an amount for the wedding dress and for alterations.
If you have a budget of $500, minus the alterations which could be between $80 to $250 (ballgowns and laces may run up to $350), then you would be looking for a wedding dress that costs $250 to $420 depending on the alterations. Most clearance wedding dresses are between $199 to $599. Most informal wedding gowns with no trains are under $500. When you go to a bridal shop and work with a bridal consultant, be sure to let her know what your budget is. This will help her pick the right type of wedding dresses for you which fits into your budget.
As a rule of thumb, the more details and beadwork on a wedding dress, the higher the price. Swarovski crystals will also raise the price of a wedding dress. The simpler the wedding dress, the less expensive it is. Please email or call me with any questions or concerns.
