Learn from the experience of others…the following is a list of top tips compiled by past Brides to help you choose the perfect wedding dress for your wedding abroad.

1) Concentrate on researching the best wedding dress silhouette for you.
Focus on your own personal style, your taste and what flatters you most. Look into different trends and fashion but don’t buy a dress purely because it’s in fashion now.

2) Your wedding dress appointment should not be too late in the day.
If you get the first appointment of the morning, the store will likely be less crowded, and you’ll get the full attention of your consultant and will get the best service.

3) Try on as many wedding dresses as you need to in order to choose your perfect dress. It might look perfect on a manikin but the manikin isn’t the one getting married.

4) Bring a camera while choosing a wedding gown.
Get your friend to take photos of you in a dress from different angles. This way you can compare different photos of yourself in a different dress. It will make your life easier choosing a dress.

5) Wear lingerie when you’re trying on wedding dresses.
On wedding dress try-on day, you’re going to be spending a lot of time in your lingerie and feeling great between gowns is essential. Visit a department store that has a bra fitting specialist, or a lingerie shop, and get fitted for a new bra. besides, take the shoes that you will be wearing when you go along for your fittings. They are required to make sure that the length and fit of the dress is just right.

6) When buying a dress bring 2 or 3 people maximum. Someone who has a good taste, who only wants the best for you and someone who is trustworthy.

7) Don’t you worry about your wedding dress sizing.
Usually bridal gowns are available in different sizes and can be altered for the perfect fit. Once you get your head around that, be realistic; pay attention to how it looks, not what the label reads.
