Modern day designers of designer wedding gowns are really pulling out all the stops when it comes to creating beautiful and unique wedding gowns. As a bride, finding the perfect dress is a monumental part of the wedding preparations, if not your top priority. Some women have been dreaming about their wedding gown since they were a little girl, barely big enough to traipse around the house in their mother’s high-heeled shoes. For others, the thought of finding the perfect wedding dress is really intimidating. No matter what kind of woman you are, here are some insider tips for choosing designer gowns.
Find the Right Shop
Choosing designer wedding gowns is no small decision. One way that you can greatly enhance your odds of finding the right wedding dress faster, is by choosing the right bridal boutique. A professional bridal boutique whether it is offline or online, should have a top of the line consulting team, and should be knowledgeable in the latest fashions. Your bridal consultant should be able to give you the inside scoop on designer gowns, letting you know off new trends that they are incorporating into their latest seasonal line.
Keep an Idea File
You may not know what designer wedding gowns you are looking for, but you probably know what you like and don’t like. Start keeping a folder with pictures from magazines or that you found on the internet of gowns that love. Jot down some notes about what it is that you like about these dresses, and if there is anything you would want to change.Then when you are ready to start shopping, you will have a style in mind.
Remember Your Budget
Designer gowns are not cheap. If finances are an issue, consider what it is about the designer wedding gowns that have you so hooked. If you can find a dress that meets your dream idea but costs less, all the better for you. Another option that you might consider is buying a designer wedding gown from last season. These dresses will often be discounted because bridal boutiques want to stock their stores with most current fashions. Just because the dress is from a previous season, doesn’t make it any less lovely, and perhaps more in your price range.
Try It On
You may have spent your entire life dreaming about wearing one of the Vera Wang designer wedding gowns, but how do you really know if it is the dress for you if you have never even tried it on. Our minds can run wild if we let them, so get grounded by trying on any wedding dress you may like. Certain wedding gowns may look very different in magazines then they do in real life, because in the magazines the dresses are tailored to the model and the photos are often altered and retouched.
Give Yourself Time
When you order a designer wedding gown, it will take time to be made. Remember that you will have several consultations before the ‘Big Day’ actually arrives, so having time on your side is an added bonus. You will also want to give yourself plenty of time to choose the right dress. Your wedding is the most important day of your life. You will look back on your pictures for many years to come – so take your time to make sure you get the dress just right.
Have Your Gown Cleaned and Sealed
It might seem silly to be thinking about this already, but it is really important to have your designer wedding gown cleaned and sealed after your special day. Your wedding dress will have sweat, make-up, and other debris after your enjoyable day of partying-getting it cleaned just ensures that you’re keeping it in the best possible shape for storage. Having your dress sealed creates a barrier from unwanted moisture, preventing mold and also prevents unwanted insects like spiders, moths, and mites from attempting to build their nests in your gown. This not only preserves your wedding dress for its heirloom value, but if you decide to sell your dress or let someone else uses it at a later date – it will be worth it to be kept in pristine condition. Another thing you may want to consider is donating your designer wedding gowns for someone less fortunate to be able to have a feel special and have a beautiful wedding too.
