This is not the time to make a fashion misstep. Here are 3 key things to keep in mind when it comes time to shop for your gown:
Decide on your price range ahead of time. Don’t be persuaded to try on gowns that break the budget. There are plenty of beautiful options in every price range, so don’t test your ability to withstand being tempted.
White isn’t white! You may be surprised that white comes in a myriad of shades, from cool blue-white to warm white. Decide, before you go shopping, which most flatters your complexion. Colour also comes into play with accessories; belt, shawl, shoes, a clutch.
Listen to the boutique expert’s advice. You are the best person to choose a style for your usual wardrobe, but you likely ar en’t the best person to choose a style for your wedding. This is an entirely new type of over-the-top dressing and the experienced boutique advisor knows how to analyze figur es and make important suggestions.
So do your homework, set your budget and go shopping with an open mind.
