Tips for Finding Your Perfect Wedding Dress

Bridal Spectacular features Las Vegas wedding tips.

It’s one of THE most important parts of any wedding — THE WEDDING DRESS! All eyes are on the bride during your big day and you want to make sure you are picture-perfect. But, how do you find your perfect wedding dress? Check out Bridal Spectacular’s tips to learn how!

Start early!

A good rule of thumb is to pick out and purchase your gown about nine months before your wedding day. Then three months before the wedding, you’ll need to be fitted for any alterations. Finally, about one month before the big day, get your final fitting for any last-minute tweaks. Be sure to bring the bra and shoes you intend to wear during all fittings as that can change the fit of the dress.

Be open-minded

We all know you have browsed through hundreds of dresses online. It’s a great idea to do your research beforehand, but be sure to be open-minded as well. You never know which dress will be THE ONE. My own wedding dress ended up being the very last one I tried on and would have never considered if someone didn’t suggest to me. You just never know!

Make an appointment

Make an appointment at a few different bridal shops so you can not only see a variety of dress lines and styles, but making an appointment will also ensure you will have a sales associate available to help you and answer all of your questions. If you’re not sure which shops are near you, take a look at the Bridal Spectacular directory online here: Wedding Dresses Las Vegas

Try on several different wedding dresses and styles

Just about any dress can look amazing on a hanger or in a magazine, but putting it on can be a whole other ball game! Try on lots of different looks, styles, and fits to find your perfect wedding dress. This is definitely one part of the planning process you do not want to rush!

Also, don’t be too caught up in overly “trendy” dresses so you don’t regret your decision 20 years down the road when you are looking back at those wedding photos.

Make sure you are comfortable

The last thing you want to do is realize that you can’t move in your dress just as you’re about to walk down the aisle! Make sure you can walk, breathe, lift your arms, dance, and don’t need to suck in too much. Unless you plan on multiple outfit changes, you will be wearing your dress for upwards of 10 hours so make sure you are comfortable!

Trust your instincts

Last, but certainly not least, trust your instincts. There are hundreds of options out there and you may be getting several different opinions if you bring your bridal party dress shopping with you. You know yourself best, so if you follow your gut it won’t steer you wrong!
