wedding planning tips advice on finding the perfect wedding dressFinding the perfect wedding dress can be quite a task.Here are some tips that will help you in your search.

From your Friends at New Hope Soap.

Now that you have a date set for your wedding it is time to start looking for that perfect wedding dress. Here are some wedding tips to help find that beautiful wedding dress.

1. Shop Early

You should start shopping about eight to ten months before the wedding. It can take up to two months to find that perfect wedding dress and at least four months to have the gown custom-made to fit your body. The first fitting of your gown is usually six to eight weeks before the wedding. Give yourself plenty of time to shop so you will not feel rushed and make the mistake of settling for the wrong dress.

2. Set The Budget First

You need to set your budget first as it is best to look for gowns that fit that budget rather than a gown that is too expensive. It is essential to remember that your wedding budget includes the gown, alterations, shoes, veil, headpiece, lingerie, and jewelry.

3. Determine Dress Code

Take a hint from your locale and time of day for the wedding as to the formalness of the wedding. A ballroom gown will look out of place in an outdoor ceremony but fit flawlessly for a ballroom wedding. If the ceremony is being performed in a church you may want to check to see if there are any requirements as to dress code for the church.

4. Go in With a Clear Vision of Your Style

Decide whether you want your wedding to be sentimental, graceful, enchanting or classic as this will help in describing to the salesperson what you are looking for in a gown.
