Wedding Musings by Rachel – Finding the Wedding Dress of your Dreams

Finding the Wedding Dress of Your Dreams

Your wedding dress should be one of the most exciting purchases you ever make- but for many brides the thought of committing to one dress for the biggest day of your life can seem incredibly daunting. We’ve put together our Top Tips to help you find the dress of your dreams, without the hassle!

Plan the Theme of Your Day

Although the dress you choose can have a huge impact on the other areas of your big day, it’s a good idea to visualise how you would like your wedding day to look overall before you start looking for your dress. Would you like it to be formal or relaxed? Luxury or rustic? Classic or bohemian? It’s great to have a few words, colour scheme ideas or photos to take to your consultant to help them find your dress.

Do Your Research

Before you book your appointments, research the boutiques you would like to visit and find out what they are like and what designers they work with. Here at Anna Bridal, we pride ourselves on our calm approach and exclusive service- only seeing one bride at a time to be able to help you through every step of finding your perfect dress. We also offer a broad selection of designers and dresses to ensure we have something for every bride. Our Suzanne Neville dresses are classically beautiful, with incredible corsetry, strong silhouettes and the finest fabrics. For something a little edgier, we suggest our Jesus Peiro gowns, with unique structure and couture designs they are perfect for a fashion forward yet bridal look. Augusta Jones are the epitome of classic bridal, offering beautiful lace, wonderful corsetry and stunning back detail. We really do have the perfect dress for every bride!

Set a Budget

It’s always best to have in mind the maximum amount you are wanting to spend on your dress, as the perfect dress for you is only perfect if it’s within your price range! Consider the quality and style of dress you are looking for when setting a budget, since this can play a huge part in the cost of a gown.

The Perfect Entourage

We always suggest you bring a couple of people with you whose opinions you value the most, but who will be honest and decisive when it comes to decision making! Remember, you are the one wearing your wedding dress, so whilst you should consider what your loved ones have to say, only you can know how the dress makes you feel, and it is ultimately your decision.

Enjoy your appointment

At Anna Bridal, our aim is to make your appointment as relaxing and enjoyable as possible for you and anybody you bring with you. We allow you to try on as many dresses as you would like, and encourage you to tell us what you do and don’t like about each dress in order for us to make suggestions to get closer to finding the perfect gown. Remember that you are only looking for one dress, so discount any that don’t make you feel incredible. Focus on finding the one that makes you a happy, radiant bride, and above all else, enjoy yourself!
