Buying the gown without knowing the heel size.

To avoid last moment expensive alterations, it is important to know the heel size you would want to wear to your wedding. Heel size determines the gown fall and the way lace hem would look.

Avoid going shopping to early or at the last moment.

As time is always a constraint for the wedding, it is important to know when it is perfect to buy the gown. The perfect time to buy the gown is 6-4 months prior to the wedding, so as to spare some extra time for alterations and changes. Wedding gowns are directly related to the wedding theme, venue and the time of the year.

Not having the budget talked.

Plan your budget before shopping for the wedding gown. This makes it easier for you to make choices and for the wedding gown consultant to help you with the choices within the price range you’ve decided earlier.

Bringing a too big of an entourage along.

Wedding gowns are personal choices. Having too many people around means too many opinions and blunders. Go wedding gown shopping with few people to ensure that your gown reflects your personality and style.


Not choosing the right lingerie.

Often left un-discussed, the undergarments should always be bought in accordance with the wedding gown. There is nothing more important than a well-fitting and comfortable lingerie which offers the wedding gown the best in elegance.
