Bringing an Entourage:
We know it’s the most important dress you’ll ever wear, and you want to make sure it’s absolutely perfect. But having 10 different opinions makes it much harder to come to a consensus—and it can bring you farther away from what you actually want.
Shopping Too Early:
Many couples are opting for longer engagements these days, but don’t start shopping more than 12 months in advance. It’s important to have the rest of your wedding details in place before you can truly shop the D-day dress, since many factors can influence the style of the dress. But, at the same time, don’t procrastinate. Most dresses take anywhere from five to eight months to come in.
Trying On Too Many Dresses:
Often, a bride is trying on dress after dress because she’s just not ready to end the shopping experience and make a real commitment. Not every bride has “that moment” when the tears start rolling and you know you’ve absolutely found “The One.” Sometimes there seems to be more than “The One” and it might be confusing.
