Updated: Nov 5, 2019

The wedding dress is an integral part of your big day, you’ve surely thought long and hard about the kind of dress you would want for your wedding day. However, things are a bit different when you go wedding dress shopping. The whole experience can be quite stressful if you don’t know much about wedding dresses.

We’re here to help make this process a lot smoother for you. Get the wedding dress of your dreams with these insider tips on shopping for your big day:

Plan your wedding dress shopping

Wedding dress shopping should be done  9 months to 1 year before the big day. Some brides opt to begin shopping for their wedding dress when they begin planning the wedding since their dress should be in line with the venue and the vibe they’re going for.

Booking a wedding dress trail a year in advance allows the wedding boutique to make all the necessary alterations well in time. You have to consider the traffic these wedding boutiques get, they have hundreds of dresses lined up for alterations that have to be done by their in-house seamstress.

Make sure you clear your calendar for this day to allow you enough time to try on dresses and see how you feel. A rushed wedding dress appointment will do you no favors.


Never go into a wedding dress appointment without doing your research on the kind of dresses available and the kind of dresses that are trending at the moment. When looking for dresses a year in advance, you have to consider the fact that the dresses available now might not be trending when you get married. Always look for various options that you would be open to and include timeless dress styles, just to be on the safe side.

Share pictures of the dresses you like with the consultant at the bridal boutique. These consultants know their wedding catalogs really well and can get you the exact dress or similar dresses to try on.

Do your hair and makeup for the trial

To get the best idea of whether or not a certain dress is right for you, make sure you do your hair and makeup for the dress trial. Make sure the look is neutral and something similar to what you will have done on the day itself. This way, you’ll get a better idea of what they dress will look like on your big day. The bridal consultant might help you put your hair up if you’re choosing a particular style of dress or if you want to try on a veil.
