With the end of the official wedding season upon us, the time has come for wedding dress shopping for our 2018 (and 2019!) brides. I absolutely love this part of the wedding planning process. That being said, it can be overwhelming and hard to know where to start. I thought I would share with you a few tips and a list of our favorite shops to help you with the process if you are getting married soon.
A few quick tips from me:
- If you can, bring a smaller group of friends with you (the smaller the better), so that how you feel about the dresses you are trying on doesn’t get lost in all of the well-intended opinions.
- If you are doing more than one appointment in a day, plan for a lunch break or coffee break in between so that you can refuel.
- Bring the right undergarments. It also doesn’t hurt to do your hair and make up as you think you might have it on the wedding day, so you can better picture the look when you are trying on the different gowns.
- Give yourself a lot of time to make the decision as last minute shopping for anything, let alone your wedding dress, can be stressful! Wedding dresses need to be ordered at least 6 months ahead of time.
Here are a few of our favourite wedding dress stores in Vancouver. I hope this list helps you with your wedding dress search – and happy shopping! :)
