Whether you have been dreaming about your wedding dress since you were twelve and have meticulously placed every last sequin or if you haven’t given the slightest second’s thought to what your dress should look like – shopping for your wedding dress is a once in a lifetime experience. But with the plethora of wedding dresses on the market now, from the regal princess gowns to the figure hugging mermaid dresses, how do you know which one is the right one for you?
We know the search for ‘the one’ is a stressful affair so here at Hall Farm Weddings we compiled a list of steps to help you hone in on the perfect dress for your big day.
Most gowns take around four to six months to be produced and once it arrives you’ll need to factor in more time for alterations and accessorising.
Let’s say you plan to cap your dress spending at a thousand pounds, this doesn’t mean you should actually buy a thousand pound gown because you’ll need to factor costs for tailoring, your veil, shoes and jewellery. So if you keep these costs in mind you can look for a dress without setting your heart on ‘the one’ only to realise you can’t afford it because you didn’t consider the costs of accessories.
This one is a simple one, the more people you take shopping with you the more variety of opinions you will face and the greater the chance you’ll end up overwhelmed or confused.
Do your homework before you start making appointments since you wouldn’t want to waste your time at a store that doesn’t carry dresses you like or has terrible customer service. Get referrals from friends & family and check online reviews.
More often than not, brides tend to go in store set on a particular style that they have been pining after only for it to fall flat once they try it on. A dress that may not immediately catch your eye on the rack may look spectacular on your body, so allow yourself to try on all types of dresses.
And once you’ve found the perfect dress you’ll need the perfect venue and this is where we come in, here at Hall Farm Weddings we are an idyllic venue nestled amongst picturesque woodlands and stunning water meadows.
