Finding the Perfect Wedding Gown
One of the most exciting elements of planning your wedding is finding the dress of your dreams. In Edmonton, the wedding dress scene has blossomed, and we’re fortunate to have some stylish and savvy local boutiques at our fingertips. Here are a few tips before you get started to make the most of your gown shopping experience:
- Shop early. Gowns can take 6 to 8 months to order; the alteration process can take up to 2 months. Keep these timelines in mind and give yourself plenty of time before your wedding day to avoid stress and costly rush charges.
- Choose your crew wisely. Too many opinions can be overwhelming and may confuse the selection process. Bring just a few of your besties or family members who will support you and your wedding vision.
- Be open-minded. Don't be afraid to surprise yourself! You might fall in love with a dress that you didn't expect to like on the hanger.
- Set a budget. Establish a realistic budget and stick to it. It's tempting to try on gowns that are outside of your budget but that can lead to some major disappointment.
