Finding the perfect dress

For many women, finding the right wedding dress can be quite a headache. There are, though it may seem hard to believe, plenty of women out there who have NOT been dreaming about their wedding since they were little girls. That’s right, not all of us are hopeless romantic dreamers.

The best piece of advice I can give on this topic is to start looking for a dress as soon as you know you are getting married. This way, if the dress is top dollar, you should have plenty of time to save up for it. It seems that now a days most women are getting engaged years before their actual wedding date, giving themselves more time to save up for that “perfect” wedding and dress they always dreamed of. A lot of couples know as soon as she says yes when their wedding date will be, but let’s not forget about the rest of us who are just not that organized or prepared. Picking a date that is two years later, will help a lot with the whole saving and planning process.

Here is a list of things you will want to consider when picking a dress:
(in no particular order of importance)

-What style do I want? (what time of year will it be?)
-What type of shoes will I be wearing? (short vs. long dress) (beach vs. ground)
-What is my budget? (Most I am willing to spend?)
-Will I wear a veil or tiara? Is that part of my budget?
-Do I want two dresses, one for the ceremony and one for the reception?
-Will I have a dress custom made for myself?
-How much time will I have to get alterations if necessary?
-Where should I get my dress?

Did you consider all of these things? Did some of them surprise you? If so, you might be someone who needs the extra time to find a dress.
