Finding the perfect wedding dress can be a long and sometimes stressful process. But The Wedding Shoppe wants to make it easy for you by helping you buy ahead of time! Not only will you have plenty of time to choose your shoes and accessories, you’ll also ensure alterations are completed when you shop ahead. Whether you buy your dream dress months or even a year in advance, here are some benefits to purchasing on your first shopping trip.
Choose your Shoes
Once you’ve found and purchased your wedding dress, it’s time to start searching for the next important item: your shoes! Not only will you want a pair that look great with your gown, but you’ll also want shoes that are comfortable enough to wear throughout your ceremony and reception. Buying a dress ahead of time ensures you won’t be rushed to find the perfect pair that also don’t kill your feet.
Staying Within Budget
Staying inside your budget can be one of the most stressful parts of planning a wedding, but it doesn’t have to be! Planning ahead can help tremendously – especially with your wedding dress. No matter the final cost of your dress, knowing the total investment months in advance can help you plan for other needs such as catering, flowers, invites and more. Buying your dress on your first trip also ensures your mind and wallet won’t stray in the upcoming months. Keep in mind that styles do get discontinued and prices go up. So be prepared to purchase the dress you love the day you find it
Since alterations are almost always needed, it’s important to give yourself (and your seamstress) enough time to complete them. You want your dress to fit 100% custom to your body and you may even need multiple alterations. By choosing your dress during your first shopping trip, you’ll have plenty of time to go through the alterations process to ensure your dress fits perfectly for your big day.
Decide on Accessories
After finding your dream dress and choosing the perfect shoes to match, it’s time to decide on accessories. Whether you plan on adding jewelry, a veil or other added elements, it’s always a good idea to see the whole look together. This also gives you time to try out different accessories, mix and match your favorites, and decide which pairings you love best.
