HOW TO PLAN A WEDDING IN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME part 6
Finding a dress is difficult but it is very important ! Wedding dress shopping can be fun however this can be a frustration process as well. It can take up too 4-6 months to have your dress shipped to you. If you are getting your dress from a local shop usually the process is about 1-2 . It will take more than a few times to choose something that you look absolutely amazing in . This is the last thing you want to worry about!!! Remember, there are alterations that may need to happen as well. And alterations need time and work and visits. Instead of going to a shop that special orders go to the bridal stores that carry multiple dresses in stock. Try to find a dress off the rack that doesn’t need to be ordered. You don’t have time for constant fittings. Dresses that lace up the back are easier to fit and will require fewer trips to the seamstress. Try something that is easy to put on as well. Laces take time meanwhile a zipper just takes seconds .
You may need to drive to a larger city to find a store with multiple sizes in multiple dresses. Usually Manhattan has amazing bridal salons such as Karen willis Holmes , etc. Also we recommend you going into the bridal salon with a few friends, maybe your maid of honor , or mother . Take your bra and a pair of heels to check the length, preferably you can take the shoes you are going to wear the day of your wedding if you have them . Also have your phone ready for a selfie . You def want to remember how the dress looks like on you before you buy.
If sometimes doesn’t fit don’t be afraid, given the time , you can always make alterations . Especially if you made your mind up with a certain dress.
Maybe you can even wear your mom, grand mothers , or aunts dress. Usually Vintage gowns make the event much more special. It will be an honor for them to see you in their dress . Believe me , and also ask if you can have it altered. I don’t think they are going to wear it anytime soon .
