DAVID’S BRIDAL VP OF DESIGN, JOSE SOLIS, SHARES HIS TOP TIPS FOR WEDDING DRESS SHOPPING 

1. Be inspired

Create a Pinterest board or have a group of tear sheets from magazines with the styles of dresses you prefer and that are catching your eye as possibly being “the one.” Bring copies to your dress appointments so the stylists have an idea of the styles and silhouettes you are looking for

2. Pick your venue first

Having an idea of your venue, or the type of wedding that you are planning to have will help guide you and your stylist with the type of dress or brands to start looking at 

3. Set a budget

When calculating your budget for your dress, take into account that it’s not just the dress you have to think of. You have to consider alterations, veil, headpiece, sash, slip, undergarments, shoes, & jewelry. Do some online research on prices before your appointment so there are no surprises

4. Keep an open mind

Although you may have an idea of what type of dress may look best for your body type, be willing to try on other dresses or accessories the stylist may suggest

5. Stay in the moment

I always say the dress picks you instead of you picking the dress. It’s all about how that dress makes YOU feel

6. Be prepared at fittings

In order to get the best fit and length for your dress make sure you bring the correct undergarments and shoes to your fitting. If your dress is strapless, bring the strapless bra you will be wearing with it. This will eliminate any guessing of how your dress will fit.

7. Remember comfort is key

Be sure the dress is comfortable, as you will be wearing it for many hours! Be sure to sit in it, and if it has sleeves or is strapless lift your arms to make sure you have reach when dancing and that it fits securely. You don’t want to have to think about (or constantly adjust) your dress in your special day

8: Enjoy yourself

Above all…have fun when trying on dresses. Your wedding is a day of celebration, and the process of finding your dress should be enjoyed as well
