Choosing your wedding attire is one of the most stressful and exciting parts of wedding planning. You get to try on a whole bunch of dresses before you find the right one for you. However, it’s not just the dress you need to worry about with lingerie, shoes, and jewelry being just as important to complete your look. Here are some common errors brides make with their wedding dress and accessories that you need to avoid!
They don’t sort out the underwear till last minute
One thing you must decide on once you have chosen your dress is whether or not you will need a bra. A lot of wedding dresses come with an insert so that your breasts are supported in the dress. However, some brides regret not getting a strapless bra so that they have an extra lift in the dress. Therefore, if you do want to get a new bra, you should make sure you go before you have your first fitting. Otherwise, the dress might sit differently without it, so they will need you to wear it for the appointment. Don’t make the mistake of leaving it till the last minute; you can find many great stores selling lingerie perfect for your wedding.
They choose shoes which don’t fit correctly
A lot of brides end up with painful feet at the end of their night because of their wedding shoes. Therefore, you need to ensure you choose a pair of shoes that fit your feet correctly. You want to be comfortable for the whole day, so there is no point choosing shoes that are going to end up needing to come off before the end of the night. Therefore, shop around until you find the right pair. Once you have them at home, practice walking around the house in the shoes, so that you can wear them in before the big day!
They don’t leave enough money aside for extras
A lot of brides end up spending over $1200 on a wedding dress. Therefore, they end up with little money for accessories which will complete their outfit. Your veil, hair piece, jewelry, and shoes are all extras you need to fork out for. Therefore, you need to put money aside to pay for these so that you don’t end up falling short. If you are strapped for cash, you could go to the sales or look online for vouchers such as a Lord&Taylor Promo Code to save some money on your accessories.
They pick a dress which doesn’t suit their style
It’s an exciting time to go for the wedding dress appointment with your family and friends. However, you need to ensure you make the final decision on your dress and aren’t swayed by anyone’s opinion. Otherwise, you will end up looking back at the photos and regret choosing that dress which didn’t suit you. Therefore, make sure you try on dresses you love that suit your style and personality.
