Hands up if you are are bride-to-be looking to start the search for your #weddingdress?! You may be wondering 'where do I start' but do not worry we are here to help!

1. Set a Budget

Start off by giving yourself a budget that you feel comfortable spending. This allows #bridal stylists to lead you in the right direction when looking for your dress. But remember dresses shouldn't be chosen based on price but they should be chosen based on feeling.

2. Do your Research

Research #bridalboutiques that stock the styles you are looking for and book in with them. Don't feel like you have to go to 101 shops to find your dress. Sometimes one is just enough.

3. Choose an Entourage

Pick wisely who you want to be there when choosing your #dress. Who is going to give their honest opinion but still embrace this experience with you.

4. Give Yourself Time

Make sure you allow yourself plenty of time to search for your dress. Our dresses can take up to 16 weeks to arrive once ordered but all designers are different. You then want to allow yourself alteration time, #seamstresses want you on their books at least 10 weeks before your wedding. We recommend starting your search at least a year before your big day. Remember it is never too early to buy your dress.

5. Once Your Start, Don't Stop

Lastly, once you have started your dress search and you are in that mindset, don't stop. Keep going until you find 'the one'. Sometimes stopping and starting can lead to running out of time and the last thing you want is unnecessary stress. We will help you wherever we can and most importantly we want you to enjoy this experience.

And remember, searching for your dress should be fun and exciting. Enjoy the experience and if you start to become overwhelmed and stressed, remember to take a step back and think about what it is you truly want - because sometimes it is right in front of you.
