Tips for choosing your wedding dress in New York

But how to avoid feeling overwhelmed by so many fabulous options? Think about the information you already have. Knowing the place and time of your wedding will help you narrow and focus your search. If you are exchanging vows in a traditional, candlelit cathedral you might want to avoid short wedding dresses and, if you are having a daytime ceremony, you can leave behind velvet and brocade, as well as ball gowns with dramatic embellishments.

Set a budget. It’s simple, just figure out how much you want to spend and let the salesperson bring out the gowns within that price range. There’s nothing worse than falling in love with a dress you can’t afford. Here’s a tip, generally, a wedding gown including accessories should account for 10 – 15 percent of the total wedding cost. Remember you don’t have to spend a million dollars to find your perfect gown, try registering for trunk shows and keep an eye on the sale racks.

Do your homework before traveling. Do your research, learn as much as you can before arriving to the bridal boutiques. Terms such as basque waist, mermaid silhouette or draped fabric are not seen every day. So bury your nose into bridal magazines and websites to learn everything you need to know! Another smart idea: start a scrap book with pictures of the dresses or details you like the most and take it with you on your shopping spree!

Recreate the look. Pack anything you know you want to wear on your special day, like your mother’s veil or a pair of special earrings. Some boutiques provide strapless bras, shoes, etc., but it’s always a good idea to bring your own.

Plan ahead. Begin shopping at least six to nine months before the wedding. Wedding gowns usually take about four months to be made and add two more months for alterations. If your dress is very elaborated, it might take even longer. Remember rush orders are an option, but they require and additional fee and choicer will be more limited.
