The biggest mistakes made when choosing a wedding dress

Picking your wedding dress is one of the most important parts of your wedding day. For some, it may seem like a simple decision to make but it can also be incredibly overwhelming and time consuming. There are also a number of pitfalls and mistakes that you can make during the process too.

Here at Teokath, a bridal shop London, we know what it takes to find the perfect wedding dress. With this in mind, we have put together our guide to the biggest mistakes that you may make when it comes to choosing your wedding dress.

Buying a dress too early, or too late

You need to have a date and a venue in mind before you even begin to start your search for a wedding dress. Having this information means that you know both the season and the possible weather conditions that you’ll be looking at. You may think it is best to leave it late so that you can lose weight or get a good deal but, you may not leave yourself enough time to find the dress and then get it altered. Ideally you should start looking around 9 months before your big day!

Not being realistic about your budget

Wedding dresses can be really expensive, which means that you need to make sure that you plan for this expense. When it comes to thinking about your budget, you need to be realistic about how much you can afford as this will give you an amount to work with and stop you heading into the bridal shop and trying on a range of dresses that are not within your price range.

Disregarding any dresses

If you speak to any newly married bride, they are likely to tell you that you should never disregard trying on a style of dress. You may have in mind a dress that you love, but when it comes to it, it just doesn’t suit you. When you head to a bridal shop, it’s always a good idea to keep open minded and try on any suggestions they may have due to their experience.

Taking too many people with you

There are going to be plenty of people who want to come with you when you go dress shopping but having too many people there can hinder your efforts. They are likely to have ideas to throw in and too many opinions are likely to confuse you and lead you to make the wrong decision.

As you can see, there a number of ways that you can end up making a mistake when it comes to your wedding dress. Always approach it carefully and you are likely to find the ideal choice for you.
