Guide for the Bride: The Dos & Don’ts of Bridal Gown Shopping – Part 2

Jan 24, 2013

Last week we went over some of the things a bride should do as she’s shopping for a bridal gown. This week, in the second part of our Guide for the Bride blog series we’ll go over some of the don’ts of bridal gown shopping.

Don’t judge a dress by its cover. You won’t know if that tea length wedding gown will look amazing unless you try it on. Don’t bypass a dress that’s hanging on the rack just because you don’t think it will look right on you.  A bridal gown looks completely different on the body than it does hanging off the rack. Don’t limit yourself just because you don’t like it on the rack.

Don’t try on too many gowns. Don’t try on dress after dress. It’s a common mistake for brides to try on too many gowns in one appointment. This usually leads to an overwhelmed bride who might have known what she wanted when she first came in, but by the end of the appointment, has no idea.

Don’t be influenced by others. This is your day to shine and you should be in love with your wedding dress. Not your maid of honor, mother, mother-in-law, or anyone else who’s dress shopping with you.

Try to keep the entourage at home. We understand that you want to hear the opinions from close family and friends, as you try on wedding dress, but you may want to rethink this decision. The more people you bring to your appointment, the more opinions that could sway your final decision, which in the end is your decision to make and fall in love with!
