With the crazy amount of different wedding dresses that are out there, different styles, fabrics, shapes and cuts it is almost impossible to only choose one for your magical day. The dress you eventually do choose will be in your wedding albums for years and years to come, and you will be wearing it not only in front of your husband to be but for both your extended family and friends. So, you are going to want it to be the perfect dress, not just an amazing looking dress, but an amazing looking dress that will look fabulous on you. Here is some things that you should avoid when you are in for the choosing.
What you see on T.V is not necessarily reality
Don’t expect tears and crying or screaming when you find your dress, like they do on the show “Say Yes To The Dress”, if you do that’s great, but if you don’t do not doubt your choice every single day up to your wedding dress, just because you didn’t have those feelings and emotions as you see on the shows. Some do, some don’t, and it is fine if you are not the emotional type.
Buying a fabulous dress only to find it a month later on 50% off, is one of those things you want to avoid. Don’t pay for your dress just like that. Take your time, and enjoy the moment and do your homework. If you do some research about the designer and find out when their next trunk show is, you might find your dress for at least 10% discount.
And also consider that styles of wedding dresses can change from year to year and if you have a long engagement you might not want to purchase a dress a year before your wedding day.

Take a Walk
Don’t just stand there when you are fitting your dress. Standing on a podium smiling in front of a mirror is no good. On your wedding day you will be walking, sitting and dancing. While you are in the store, take a walk and sit down for a cup of tea, make sure your dress is functional and that you can take a breath in it. And you know what is great, to have a dress you don’t actually need help to use the bathroom when you need one, and to be able to sit down and take your shoes off and on as you wish.
Don’t forget to take lots and lots of photos. By taking photos of yourself in the dress from the sides, and the back you will be able to get an idea of what others will see when they eye you from every angle. The photos will also show you how the fabric looks, as some dresses made of silk or taffeta can appear wrinkled in pictures. And take a good look at how your body appears in your dress. If you have a favorite body part that you are extra proud of or want to stand out, maybe a part your partner love, find a dress that shows it off.
Just take a moment and think about what your fiancé likes. If you have a hard time choosing over two dresses, ask your guy what he thinks of lace or silk, sleeves or no sleeves or whatever the case is, and he might have a strong opinion about it. Anyway he is the reason you are wearing a wedding dress, and you want him to like at as much as you do.
