1. Start your search early

It's never too early to start looking for your wedding dress. You should begin your search at least six to nine months before your wedding day. This will give you plenty of time to browse through different styles and make appointments to try on dresses. Starting early also means you can avoid the stress of last-minute shopping and alterations.

2. Know your body shape

Understanding your body shape is crucial when choosing a wedding dress that flatters you. Different styles suit different body shapes, so take some time to research which styles work best for you. For example, if you have an hourglass figure, a mermaid-style dress could be a perfect choice. If you have a pear-shaped figure, an A-line dress may be more flattering.

3. Consider your wedding venue and theme

Your wedding venue and theme can influence the style of your wedding dress. For instance, if you're having a beach wedding, you might want to choose a lightweight, flowing dress. If you're having a traditional wedding in a church, a more formal dress could be the better option. Consider the style of your venue and the overall aesthetic of your wedding when selecting your dress.

Beach, mountains, villa--oh my! Choose a dress that is comfortable and coordinates with your venue of choice.

4. Set a budget

Wedding dresses come in a range of prices, and it's essential to set a budget before you start shopping. The last thing you want is to fall in love with a dress that's way out of your price range. Be honest with your bridal consultant about your budget, so they can help you find a dress that fits your style and budget.
