No, we’re not talking about your future, husband, we’re talking about The Dress! Going wedding dress shopping soon? Here are some top tips to keep in mind:
Eat first A hangry bride is never a good thing.
Put on some make-up Blotchy skin and straight-out-of-bed hair doesn’t look good on anyone.
Bring a pair Bring the shoes you’re going to wear down the aisle – or shoes with the same height that you often wear.
Know your price range Yes, they are all beautiful, but you are wearing this dress once.
Bring the right underwear This will ensure a proper fit for all of the dresses you try on, so make sure you bring underwear options of different cuts and shapes.
Adhere to your own dress code You don’t want to be the odd one out on your big day.
Skip the entourage Bring one or two people who know your style well.
Have an open mind You might be surprised how good you look in a cut, colour or style that you don’t normally go for.
