  • While shopping avoid taking your entire entourage as that may only confuse your judgement considering the many opinions on deciding that ‘perfect’ dress.

Accordingly start looking for the dress, jewelry and your accessories to complement your overall look.
  • Try choosing footwear that goes well with your dress and you are comfortable wearing it for a long duration. Choosing your wedding shoes will never going to be easy. There is so much variety of shapes. sizes, styles and colors available in the market and finding the pair that will work perfectly with the dress you’ve chosen will become a difficult decision.
  • Avoid those places that are way out of your budget. It’s better to list down the places accordingly so that you do not face any issues later in terms of budget and design.
  • A wedding stylist can help you the best in this situation. At the same time, don’t fall for sales, discounts, etc, it’s your wedding day; you cannot compromise on your dress or any other thing at any cost.
  • Don’t go shopping too early for your wedding outfit, neither too late that you end up buying anything and everything that you get. You can start 6 months before your wedding or if you are working on your body, 3 months time will be perfect in this situation. Also, it is a good idea to write down every single thing before you plan to buy.
  • Don’t hurry and end up with the first outfit that you like. Look patiently for as many options available. It is advisable to take the expert’s advice and try only those which you think will suit you the best for the occasion.
