Wedding is not always about the foods, party, ceremony and reception. It is also a thing about dishing out great amount of money as well as devoting precious time in terms of planning and preparation.
Below are five tips that I think, can save you a lot of time, money and headache in terms of shopping for wedding dress. They are quite simple and basic yet their effect will be tremendous. Here it goes.
1). Take Advantage Of Sale And Discounts – This one not only applies for wedding dress, but for everything in general. For wedding dress part, it’s always nice to check out wedding stores that offers great discounts and sales. Some of them even offer wedding dress for the whole entourage for a big bulk discount.
2). Try Before You Buy (Or Before You Don’t Buy) – As a shopper and a customer, you have all the right to test and try products out before you dish out your hard earned money for it. Try anything that you wanted to. It’s better to try it for minutes or so than buy immediately then return it afterwards if it doesn’t suits your look and taste. Also, there are salesperson who will assist you that sometimes, insist you to try some of their stuffs that might suit and interest you. Try it and who knows, it might be a better fit.
3). Canvass First – Not all wedding dress shops and stores are created equal. For sure, known names and products can cost much. But sometimes, even an upcoming or local brand do have great quality that can match branded products. I suggest, go for the cheaper one but don’t give out the quality. Look for dresses that looks and feels good but with a lower price tag.
4). Think Twice Or Thrice – Don’t make decisions immediately. Set a date for you to decided what to buy and whom to buy. Much better to shop or window shop around and try out stuffs then jotting it down one by one. At the day of the decision, you can always look at your notes and remember those stuffs you tried. This way, a much better decision will be made, most of the time.
5). Pre Nuptial Shots – Always ask the wedding shop or store where you will buy or rent your gown if they will allow you to borrow the dress days before the wedding for the much needed wedding photography task – the pre-nup shots. Some shops doesn’t allow this kind of scenario but some do. Go for the one that will allow you too to save more time and money as well in terms of renting wedding gowns and the like.
That’s it for now. I hope I have gave you some good basic pointers and tips when shopping for wedding dress.
