Make a List of Must Visit Stores

Do some research about the local bridal gown stores in your area. Make a list of the ones you absolutely want to visit. Don’t be surprised if you have to spend a few weekends hitting them all. Having your budget figured out will help you determine which ones you should and shouldn’t visit.

Don’t Bring the Whole Squad

When you go out shopping for a wedding gown, don’t bring your entire crew. It might sound like a lot of fun, but it’s not going to be. The more people you bring, the more opinions you’ll have to deal with. And get this, some stores even limit the number of people you can bring with you, so pick a few people that you trust will give you an honest opinion.

Buying Online

Buying online can either be really great or go horribly wrong. There are a lot of knockoffs from overseas that will break your heart and your budget. However, do check out Etsy and eBay. You can find some great deals on designer dresses at much better prices than in the stores.
