Every bride has this image of herself in her wedding dress, but once you start trying the dresses on you will realize how much you can be flexible,  for example you might imagine yourself in a strapless gown but once you try a gown with sleeves you change your mind and fall in love with the dress, so remember to keep an open mind, and follow these few tips as well:

Allow Enough Time: It usually takes designers 6 months to deliver a dress, and if you have some changes or add-ons to the dress it might take longer. Don’t forget any minor alterations that you may need once the dress arrives.

Keep in Mind The Budget: The first thing you do when you enter the bridal boutique is tell them your price range. Why try over the top and super expensive dresses if you can’t afford them?

Wear the Right Undergarments:  Wear nude or white colored undergarments, and make sure they will not clash with your wedding dress. For more tips read: “What to Wear Under Your Wedding Dress”

Dare to Try New Things: Don't be afraid to try on a style you never wore before or thought you didn’t like.  Keep an open mind when trying on wedding gowns, because you never know which dress will steal your heart.

Have More Than One Fitting: Make sure you appoint more than one fitting, at least 3-4 times, to make sure of the size, any details  you want add or remove, and any other details your dress might need before taking it home with you.
