Shopping for the perfect wedding dress is one of the most exciting things that a bride will experience during the planning process. Sometimes, the bride even says YES to the very first dress that she tries on! Wedding dress consultants are trained to help brides find the gown that best expresses them individually, and it brings them joy every single time a bride finds the perfect dress. However, there are 3 things your wedding dress consultant wishes you knew before you start trying on all the wedding dresses in the boutique.

3 Things Your Wedding Dress Consultant Wishes You Knew

Makeup
One of the best tips anyone can give you before going dress shopping is to keep your makeup light. While most ladies like to look their best before they leave the house, when it comes to trying on wedding dresses, less is more. We all know that bright red lipstick is likely to stain any gorgeous dress, if not paying close attention. The same goes for mascara and foundation. So, if at all possible, keep your makeup to a minimum when trying on wedding dresses. Rock your natural beauty!

Budget
Be careful in trying on wedding dresses that are outside of your budget! Many times, brides fall in love with a dress that is out of their price range because they made the mistake of trying it on even though they knew they couldn’t afford it. This can be very disappointing and overwhelming at the same time. If you fall in love with a dress that is not within your budget, you may have a hard time even considering other options that you can afford.  So, if you have a budget that you want to stick with, communicate that with your stylist! She will gladly respect your budget by pulling dresses that are within your price point. However, if your budget is flexible, you can make an exception to the rule.

Family and Friends 
Limiting your appointment group is key when shopping for your dress. More people means more opinions, and this can be both stressful and overwhelming for the future bride. If possible, limit your group to close family and friends who will give you helpful input and make your dress shopping experience a success. Ultimately, this day is about YOU and finding the dress that YOU love, so be sure to bring people that you know will support you no matter what!
