Trying on wedding dresses

If the wedding preparations have already reached the stage of choosing a dress, and you are going to the wedding salon for a fitting, then we recommend that you carefully read what is written below. Given the suggested tips, trying on wedding dresses in the salon will be your pleasure.

  • Decide on a day to go shopping. Find several salons and call there to consult about the availability of outfits of your size. So you do not spend precious time on shops where there is nothing for you. This is especially true for ladies who do not have the most running clothing size. Plan your route in advance to get to several salons in a day.


  • By phone, it is worthwhile to clarify whether the bridal salon practices pre-registration for fitting. You do not want to stand in lines? Do not be late. In addition to elementary etiquette, it will be better for you to try on wedding dresses without fuss. Also ask if you need to pay for fitting. Most often, a couple of dresses can be tried on for free, and the rest for money. The amount is small, but if you buy a wedding dress, this money will be deducted from its value.
  • Postpone shopping if you're in a bad mood. You should even enjoy the selection process, and not walk gloomily between hangers and mannequins..
  • Do not go to the bridal salon to try on alone. Take at least one person whose taste in clothing you think is good. It can be mom or girlfriend. And grab a camera with you. So you can hear the opinion from the outside and see with your own eyes how this or that wedding dress is sitting on you. But remember, the decision must be made by you. This is the main dress in your life. If you can’t take pictures in the cabin, your mirror will be your reliable assistant. Examine yourself from all sides..
  • Be sure to take a shower before trying on. No need to smear lotions, creams, etc. after that, because they will leave greasy spots on things. A deodorant that leaves no residue and odor is enough. It will be even better if you forget about makeup on the day of fitting. A tonalnik or lipstick can easily ruin expensive wedding dresses. Refrain from using perfume.
  • Leave all your jewelry at home. To decorate wedding dresses often use lace, mesh, etc. And all this easily deteriorates, you just have to hook it.
  • Take your shoes with you. Of course, you probably haven't gotten your wedding shoes yet. But you probably already know how tall your heel will be. Take any shoes with the same heel height. So you will be sure that the wedding dress you have chosen is perfect in length. Look here photos of wedding shoes 2016.


  • The same goes for laundry. If you have already bought a set of underwear for a wedding, be sure to bring it with you. There should be no doubt like «will the bra be visible?». If there isn’t any wedding linen yet, choose a flesh-colored set in your closet. The straps should be unfastened or completely absent. Lingerie should be as concise as possible: without lace, bows and other decorations.
  • When the consultant asks about the amount that you are willing to give for the wedding outfit, answer honestly. You should not spend precious time on things that you cannot afford. Do not rush into the fitting room with all the outfits that offer you. Take your choice seriously and decide on five dresses. It’s better to try on only those dresses that you really want to buy.
  • Consult a consultant for help. Let me tell you in more detail which wedding dresses of which styles and colors will suit you, taking into account the peculiarities of the figure and skin.
  • Before buying, carefully and carefully examine the wedding dress. If there are any defects (holes, protruding threads, spots), then they need to be detected now. So you can get a discount on the item or refuse to purchase it. If in doubt, have you found what you need, or not yet, ask to postpone the looked-out outfit until morning.


A positive attitude, patience and faith in success will certainly help you choose the wedding dress of your dreams.
