Dress Shopping Tips

Know your budget – Decide on a budget you’re comfortable with. You can look beautiful at any price. It’s a good idea to avoid trying on gowns that are well above what you’re happy to spend. There’s nothing worse than falling in love with a gown you simply cannot have. No one deserves to buy second best! Remember, the BEST gown is not the most expensive, it’s the one that suits you best!

Have an open mind – Remember when you walk into a store a bridal consultant does not have a pre conceived idea of “what you should wear”. It’s great to have someone find you a gown they think will suit you without bias. A gown that you never imaged even trying on could be your favourite. Don’t pre judge a gown on a hanger, some gowns have no ‘hanger appeal’. Once worn however, they can come to life!

Know your day – Where will you be having your ceremony indoor or outdoor? What season? These details can help you find the right gown right down to style and fabric.

Speak your mind– Wedding dress shopping doesn’t have to be a daunting experience, it’s an exciting special time of your life and we want you to have an enjoyable experience. We will listen to you and work with you to find the best gowns to suit you and your day. Be vocal with what you are loving and not liking about each gown you try on, this helps us pick gowns that you may prefer that you haven’t seen yet.

Bringing an entourage – We all have different tastes, too many comments or ideas can be confusing and frustrating!


Be selective of who you bring with you to try on gowns. You need to be able to get a feel for different styles without having anyone cloud your judgement.
