How to Find "The" Dress | Trying on Gowns


Maggie Sottero Wedding Gown


Gown by: Maggie Sottero 


Purchased at: The Dresser Bridal Couture


When you're dress hunting, it's good to bring photos of the types of dresses you are looking for, so that your bridal stylist can get an idea of the look you are going for. But be open minded and don't be afraid to try dresses that are different. You might surprise yourself and find an amazing dress!


Bring shoes that are about the same height as the shoes you plan on wearing for your wedding day.  If you already have your wedding shoes, even better! Bring those.


If the gown doesn't fit you just right, make sure to get an estimate on the cost for alterations so that you can factor that into the total cost of the gown.


A few questions to ask yourself with each gown you try on:


1)   Am I comfortable?  Most brides will only wear one gown on their wedding day. You need to be comfortable enough in it to get through photos, the ceremony, dinner, and dancing.  If the dress is too heavy it might be hard to stand, walk, or dance in while wearing heels. If the train is very long, get a quote on getting it bustled, so that you can dance in it throughout the night.  If the dress is A-mazing, but you know you won't be able to dance and party in it all night, consider getting a simpler yet elegant gown or party dress to change into for your reception.


2)   Do I look gorgeous? One of the most important things in selecting a wedding gown is that you feel gorgeous! Feeling gorgeous in your gown radiates in your smile, your emotions, and your expressions. This translates into a stunning bride and beautiful photographs.

 

How do you know if you've found the one? Well, if you have the dress on and you can't stop smiling....that's usually the one J
