Fringe & Lace offers tips when looking for your perfect bridal gown

• Shopping Group. Keep your “yes” crew small. Sometimes, too many opinions can make the appointment overwhelming. If you can’t imagine yourself saying yes without all of your besties, it’s okay to bring them all—but before you go, make sure you have a deep conversation with them about what you are looking for, so they can help you stay on task with your vision.
• Pinterest Board. Preview some gown ideas even before you start shopping. It is always a good idea to gather all of your inspirations on an idea that helps you put all of the pieces together.
• Your bridal gown is the most expressive gown you will ever wear in your life. Stay true to you. The gown is all about you. (This is a great reminder for your “yes” crew as well, when they are helping you pick your gown.)
• Consider your venue and the overall vision of your wedding day. Your gown should reflect you and will set the tone of your wedding.
• Consider your budget before shopping. Gowns range in price because of the quality, construction, and designer. It’s more than just a white dress, it’s the workmanship, hand beading, intricate lace, lining, and the fit.
• Be open minded to silhouettes, fabrics, and styles. We often find brides chose a gown they hadn’t originally thought would look good on them. We love those moments when a bride puts on a gown and feels beautiful inside and out.
• It’s okay to chose what we love, even if it is a different image than what our mothers have in mind for us. Trust me, we all love our moms. We love them more than they know, but sometimes our wedding dress dreams are different than what our mothers have dreamed of us wearing. We promise that we still love our mothers opinion, even if it is different than ours.
• Consider your appointments based on the way a boutique makes you feel. Consider the customer service and the environment. Your gown might be one of the most emotional wedding decisions you make during this process. Make sure you have the best gown team by your side.
• It’s okay to say YES at your first appointment. Sometimes, we feel that we need to sleep on it or shop around, but allow yourself that opportunity to feel those feelings from the beginning. Don’t rob yourself of saying yes and having that life moment when it happens.
• Most importantly, be excited, take it all in, and enjoy this process. You are the bride and this is one of those life moments that you will remember forever. When you look back on your wedding, you will remember many things, but most importantly, you will remember how you felt with your new husband, friends, and family by your side and how much you loved your gown.
