10 tips to find a wedding dress

  1. Research wedding dress stores to find stores in your region.
  2. Make appointments at the stores you want to visit
  3. We recommend no more than two stores a day, so you won't become overwhelmed with choices.
  4. Be sure to bring one or two people whose opionions you really value to your bridal appointment.
  5. Find a gown style that suits your body shape. If you aren't sure, ask the sales associate.
  6. While at the store, look at veils, hair accessories, jewelry and bridesmaid dresses.
  7. When you find your dress, ask how long it will take to receive it.
  8. If you find find your dress at the first store, remember to cancel your appointment at the second store.
  9. Determine what alterations you will need for your dress.
  10. Ask the store's recommendations for stitchers to alter the dress.
