When a bride tells someone that they’re going wedding dress shopping, they usually get a response at a mile a minute (because the other person is so excited for the bride!). But, not everything that everyone says about wedding dress shopping is true. On the blog today we want to shut down some wedding dress “rumors”.
First thing first, it’s definitely okay to come in with a price point range. But, with that being said, it is very difficult to put an exact price tag on what you will be wearing for one of the biggest days of your life! So try to come in with just an idea instead, if possible. It’s not every day you wear a gown, so quality is always something that should be at the forefront of your mind!
Next rumor we want to talk about is that your wedding dress should be white. The truth is, most designers aren’t designing in white anymore! Silk white or ivory are the colors of most of our sample gowns & honestly, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference unless you held a piece of printer paper up to the dress. Also blush, champagne & even earth tones (like nude & almond) are VERY in right now!
Another thing that is extremely important we discuss is sizing. So, wedding dress sizes are not the same as regular dress sizes because couture sizing runs much, much smaller. If you wear a four in street clothes, don’t freak out if the wedding dress size that fits you best is an six to eight. It’s also important to remember that each designer has their own size chart. With that being said, these dresses aren’t meant to fit perfect at first, they will need to be altered to fit your body! Lucky for our brides, our seamstresses are in house & are amazing at what they do.
We hope shutting down a few wedding dress rumors will be helpful to our beautiful brides & of course, if anyone reading has a question that we didn’t answer in this post, feel free to call or email! Thanks for visiting our blog, everyone!
