Fear not, our stylists are available to assist you. They spend their time answering brides’ questions and have compiled their top 10 tips for shopping for wedding dresses based on the most frequently asked questions. Let’s have some fun and learn how to choose the perfect wedding dress!
1. WHAT IS THE COST OF A WEDDING DRESS?
Our top tip for shopping for wedding dresses is to think about your budget. A luxury wedding dress doesn’t have to be expensive. WED2B has wedding dresses starting at PS79, with the exception of our Platinum Edition models. Our huge selection is available at all of our locations across the country. You can also take a look at our bridal gowns, which retail for PS79.99/EUR89.99 each.
2. WHAT ADVANCE SHOULD IT TAKE TO GET MY WEDDING DESS?
It’s never too late to get started! You can start searching online for the perfect dress as soon as you get engaged. You don’t need an appointment at WED2B. So you can come in whenever you are ready. You can then pick the right one and take it home that day. Remember to allow for time for adjustments and remember that summer is when local seamstresses are busiest.
3. WHAT IS THE BEST WEDDING DRESS TO CHOOSE?
Our top tip for shopping for wedding dresses is to find the one that makes you feel most special. It might not be the one that you expected. Every store has expert stylists to help you find the right dress. Do your research before you go and find the right silhouette for your body. Keep your entourage small, and bring your camera. You can take your time and try on as many dresses at WED2B as you like. There’s no hurry! Once you have found the one that suits you, be sure to try it on and make sure you are comfortable in it. Trust your gut instincts and it will feel right if it does!
4. WHAT DRESSES TO WEAR FOR WEDDING DRESS SHOPPING
You can bring your wedding shoes if you have them. You should bring shoes that are similar in height and silhouette to your wedding outfit. Different shoe styles can drastically alter how clothing falls, especially the hemlines. A cute kitten heel or a low-heeled stiletto can make the hemline of a gown look very different from a shoe with thick ankle straps, a platform or lots of embellishments. Check out this guide to find the best underwear for your appointment and the big day.
5. HOW TO DETERMINE WEDDING SHEATHER SIZE
All of our dresses can be worn off-the-peg. You can also try on different sizes until you find one that is most comfortable. Because of the structure and layers of fabric, UK wedding dress sizes may be slightly smaller than UK. Don’t let your body change by choosing a smaller wedding dress than you currently own. You should choose a gown that fits you well if you are trying to lose weight. Talk to a seamstress about altering it later.
6. HOW TO CHOOSE A WEDDING DRESS THAT FITS YOUR BODY SHAPE
Our staff are experts in determining the best styles for you. So listen to their tips on wedding dress shopping. Although you may already have an idea of your dream dress, it is often when brides begin to look at other styles and try them on that they find ‘The One.’ You might find something completely different from what you thought. Keep an open mind. It can be difficult to find the right shape for your body, style and size. Read our guide to wedding gown shapes to learn more. Don’t be afraid to try on larger dresses. Although you may find your perfect dress in a larger size than usual, most of our gowns are available in two sizes. We will gladly provide a list with recommendations for seamstresses within your area that can alter your gown, if necessary.
7. WHAT WEDDING DRESS FITS MY PERSONALITY
You know better than anyone what type of dress you prefer and are comfortable in. Although it’s cliché, it’s true that the dress doesn’t wear you. You shouldn’t be so taken in by the beauty of a gown that you forget about whether it makes you feel comfortable. You may feel temporarily “dress blind” if you look at too many dresses. This can be avoided by imagining the moment you will walk down the aisle toward your husband once you have a dress on. It is important to take a look at everything and choose something that makes you happy. You should feel confident in the dress.
8. HOW TO ACCESSORISE WEDDING DESS
Our top tip for wedding dress shopping is to add accessories. A simple, but striking design such as our Porsha gown looks great just the way it is. You can make a completely different look with a few carefully chosen accessories, like our shiny Leonie belt or super cute hair comb. You can also create a totally different look for day and night with our sophisticated boleros and jackets. For help in finding the right accessories, talk to your WED2B store advisor.
9. HOW TO DANCE IN A WEDDING PROPERTY
You want your wedding day to be about you and your man. Your dress shouldn’t restrict your ability to enjoy yourself and marry the man of your dreams. When you feel you have found “The One”, don’t be afraid to move around and twist your arms. You won’t be watched, but it is possible! You can ask a seamstress later to add a bustle. This will enable you to lift your train off the ground so that you can move easily when it’s time for a boogie. Finally, practice some moves in your dress before the big day.
10. HOW TO STORE WEDDING SDRESSES IN A BOX
Make sure your wedding dress is properly stored after the big day. Keep it out of direct sunlight as it can yellow. It is also important to remove it from the hanger as it can cause it to be distorted. It should not be stored in a zip-up bag. For PS24.99 for a medium and PS29.99 for large, brides have the option to purchase a breathable fabric bag to keep your dream dress in perfect condition. Specialty boxes are available in our stores, which are ideal for post-wedding storage and can be used for travel abroad. It’s one of the most stunning dresses you will ever purchase, so it’s well worth keeping!
