Research, research, research

Ball gown, a-line or mermaid?! First and foremost, you should have thought about what kind of dress you want, browse magazines and websites, set your Pinterest board up in order to collect your ideas and show it once in the showroom. The more details, the better!

Schedule different appointments

Once you have a clear idea of what you want, it’s time to schedule appointments! In case, you have specific designers or stylist in mind, find out which showrooms have their bridal collections. The day you first try on a bridal dress, it has to be a stressless one…Doubtless, the best day to try your potential bridal dress is Saturday. Go for it!

Less is more

Just like in the movies, the Bride tends to bring her team of maids or family members. Wait! Less is more when it comes to the most important choice of your life. I suggest to invite your dearest just to your last fitting and surprise them revealing your choice!

Don’t’ forget your Venue

Where and when are you getting married? Your Venue is the key thing and it will be helpful in your search. If you will be having an open-air ceremony on the beach or in a garden, you should avoid ball gowns with long trains…they would be ruined after your first steps. If you’re exchanging your vows in an elegant Cathedral, you should avoid short or backless dresses.

Try on everything

Even if you already have your style set, make sure you give other styles a go at your first appointment. You may be surprised by what you find!

Wear a light makeup

You’re going to try on expensive wedding dresses in ivory, white, champagne… Wear a minimal makeup in order to have a natural and candid look…just as you will be on that special day!

Say your YES out loud

Don’t be surprised if you find your dress at the first stroke! Trying on hundreds of dresses will not make your choice easier, usually it just complicates things. Hence, if you find the bridal dress you love the most, go with it and say your YES out loud!

Have fun

The choice of your bridal dress will be one of the best moment of your life. You’ll surely be the center of attention because you’re…the bride-to-be. Have fun!

For this and for many other important moments… I’ll stand by you for your #destinationlove

Let 2021 be the happy one!
