Wedding Dress Hustles 101: A Complete Guide

You’ve dreamt of flaunting an ethereal wedding dress since you were a little girl, but the time’s here, and the stress of wedding dress shopping and alterations is getting on your nerves.

From finding the perfect dress to the final reveal, each step of buying your wedding dress is exciting yet extremely daunting. Several questions make rounds in your head—“Is this the right dress for me?” “What style should I go for?” “Will the dress fit me well?” and so on.

Keep this guide handy to make your wedding dress hustles stress-free and memorable (in a good way!)

Set a Budget

Finding your dream dress that’s out of your budget is heart-wrenching. Save yourself the pain and set a budget before stepping out on the hunt. Don’t feel embarrassed or afraid to tell the price range to your dress consultant. It narrows your choices and helps you pick a dress that exceeds your expectations.

If you’re on a tight budget, consider choosing a dress from the sample dresses to find a great bargain.

Make Your Entourage

The key to finding the perfect wedding dress is having an excellent bride tribe. Wise opinions and honest critique from your bridesmaid, mother, or sister help you pin the perfect dress quickly and easily. Don’t feel pressure to bring a huge entourage of aunts, cousins, and friends—in short, focus on the quality, not quantity.

Get To Know Your Body

You must’ve pinned and saved numerous gowns on your social media account but be open about your choices. Your perception and requirement may alter once you start trying on different styles.

Do you have your sight set on a specific dress? Do you like satin more than lace? Do you want to show off a specific part of your body? Do you want it elegant or playful?

Answer these critical pre-considerations and get to know your body shape and silhouette. Moreover, choose a fabric that suits the climate of your wedding location.
