Shopping for your wedding dress is a fun and special occasion. A day spent with important women in your life, searching for the most important dress you’ll ever wear. Whether you are buying locally in Mackay, Airlie Beach or travelling to a capital city – ( Brisbane has excellent wedding dress stores ) here are a few tips.
Your fantasy wedding dress needs to be pushed to the back of your mind. Don’t stick to similar styles when trying dresses on. Be open to new ideas; step out of your comfort zone and into as many frocks as possible! Do not fear confusion or too many options. When you find the one; you will know.
Shop around. Even if you are pretty sure you found the dress, keep looking. This is a rare moment in your life, make the most of it. What is so bad about trying on 10 gorgeous wedding dresses in one day? Make it fun! Try the different veils, enjoy this moment.
Be practical. Are you planning on doing a jive for your first dance together? That big puffy princess dress might not be the best option. Perhaps you could get a separate dress for the reception so it is easier for you to move around in.
Accessorising is becoming easier as more stores open in Mackay. But if you have a specific idea in your mind and haven’t found it locally search online. Ebay and etsy are great online market places really worth a look. Etsy is a marketplace specialising in hand made products like veils, hair pins, garters, bridal accessories and much more. Purchasing gorgeous tear drop cubic zirconia earrings on eBay for $10 is nothing to be ashamed of. The money you save on little things can be spent on the larger items…like that beautiful wedding dress.
When you know, you know. You might stare goofily at your reflection in the boutique mirror whilst you imagine walking down the aisle towards your one and only. Or you might turn around and scream and hug your best friend saying ‘This is it! This is the one!’ However you react, you will know with absolute certainty that you have found the perfect dress – as well as a husband!
