How To Choose A Wedding Dress?

Recommended Posts

Itâ€s difficult to choose a wedding dress to me, I donâ€t want to buy a expensive one, itâ€s waste to put it in the cabinet after the wedding. Give me some suggestion please.

Well, I'm not sure if your difficulty comes from choosing a style or choosing a budget. I don't know what your idea of "expensive" is because there is such a range of wedding dresses out there. There's a thread on this forum that talks about how much brides spent on their wedding dresses and if you take a look at it, it varies just like the availability of dresses out there. Everyone has their own idea of what a wedding dress means to them and how much they want to spend on it. So once you've decided what your budget is, go and try on some dresses. Dresses in pictures and on the rack look very different than dresses on you so it's important that you try some on. If you are solely concerned about budget, look in non-traditional places. For instance, JCrew or Nordstroms has some beautiful dresses that are not as expensive as others can be. You can also go and look at cocktail dresses and find one that you could wear as a wedding dress since some of them could definitely double as a wedding dress -- this is something I considered.

 

If there is a wedding dress designer that you like but you don't want to pay full price for their dress, sign yourself up for the nearest bridal salon(s) mailing list(s). They will send you emails when they have a trunk show -- these trunk shows are a good time to buy wedding dresses at a discount.

 

You can also go online on ebay, and even here, where people are selling their dresses--new or pre-owned. If you're okay with pre-owned, you can get a beautiful dress at less than full price. Sometimes consignment stores also have a wedding dress or two if you're into vintage dresses -- my friend found a beautiful Vera Wang dress at a vintage store and I don't think it was new. But after alterations it looked like it was made for her.

 

So there are a lot of options out there; you just have to decide what it is that you want. And remember to decide whether or not you want to include the cost of alterations in the budget for your wedding dress; I counted alterations as "extra" but ended up spending very little on it so it didn't really matter in the end. Good luck and happy planning!

I think I am going to start to try on dresses in April. Trying to loss a lil weight before then. When I was in my bestfriend's wedding as the MOH I ordered my dress 6 months before the wedding and when it got it was 2 sizes too big and fit like a bag! The girls at the bridal shop said it would be like making a whole new dress if they had to resize it, so I just rush ordered a different dress to show off my new body. I really don't want to do that with my wedding dress!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
