Congratulations, now that you are a Bride-to-be, wedding dress shopping will be high on the list of to do’s. Before you dive in and book hundreds of appointments to try on thousands of dresses it is incredibly valuable for your time and stress levels to start with a little research. The style of your venue is incredibly important as this usually has a big influence on the type of gown you choose. Therefore, it can be very helpful if you have your venue booked before trying dresses. Booking the venue and setting the date is one of the biggest wedding planning decisions you will make, so you may want to get this confirmed, and then the dress search begins.
Every bride is different, but we would advise looking for your dress around 12-18 months in advance of your big day. All brides are different so if you wish to start looking sooner, the more time on our side the better. On the other hand, if you have less time and need something sooner, don’t panic, we will always do our best to accommodate all timescales, whether that is in the form of a rush cut or an off the peg gown, there are lots of options.
