One of the most exciting times in any woman’s life is when she makes the decision to share her life with the man of her dreams. And what better way to make that official than with a wedding? And what better way to make that wedding day unforgettable than to wear a show-stopping wedding gown?

Being that there are literally hundreds of different styles of dresses to choose from when you’re in the process of wedding dress shopping, it’s easy to get frustrated. So, in order to make it easier on you, here’s a list of five things that you should avoid when picking out your dress. If you keep these things in mind, you’ll have the dress of your dreams at a price that you can afford.

Wedding dress - 1

DON’T start without a budget. You’re going to find yourself being very overwhelmed and potentially disappointed if you go wedding dress shopping without having a budget first. The reason why is because there are plenty of wedding dresses that are within your price range; however, there are also plenty of them that are not. If you’re not careful, you could end up falling in love with a dress that you can’t get due to the price or buying one that simply costs way too much money. Before anything else, have a budget in place.

DON’T shop online. Although there are some people who will disagree with this tip, here’s the reason why shopping online is not the best idea. Yes, there are lots of beautiful gowns on the internet. But when it comes to delivery times and also figuring out if which dress is the right fit, that’s what can make shopping online a taxing process. Plus, you don’t want to be weeks out from your wedding and you still don’t have a wedding dress. So, if you can help it, shop locally or take a road trip with a couple of girlfriends to a physical store in another city. You can try it on and take it home the same day, knowing that it fits you.

Wedding dress - 2

DON’T take a crowd of people with you. Speaking of bringing some people along with you, while it’s always a good idea to get a second or even third opinion of what kind of dress is best, what you don’t want to do is have a crowd of people present. The more people there are, the more opinions there will be and before long, you might find yourself trying to please them more than yourself. (And that’s never a good thing.)

DON’T forget about your fiancé. Say that while wedding dress shopping at a bridal store like Allure Bridals, you find a dress that you are quite happy with. Before making the purchase, here’s something else to consider: your fiancé. Contrary to popular opinion, the wedding day is not just about the bride. It’s also about the groom. So, as you’re figuring out what kind of dress you want, think about what will bring a smile to his face as well.

Wedding dress - 3

DON’T wait until the last minute. There are some people who are fortunate enough to be able to find their wedding dress 4-6 weeks before their wedding; however, they are the exception and not the rule. You don’t want to put yourself under the immense stress of waiting until the last minute to get your wedding dress. So, as soon as you and your fiancé lock down a wedding date and venue, make sure that getting your dress is one of the next things on your to-do list.

So let us have a look at some of the definitive tips that would help one in designing the perfect wedding invitation:

  • Decide about the theme: There are many brides who struggle for creating the perfect theme for their weddings. Usually, the brides do begin with a particular theme in the mind but as soon as they view a series of invitation samples, their thought goes out of the window. So it is necessary keeping an open mind while choosing the wedding invitation theme, especially when one has no locked-in theme or the colour scheme. Viewing the product samples is actually having the difference between liking an invitation card and ordering an invitation card. It is best to stick with colour rather than sticking up with the design of an invitation theme.


  • Focus on the affordability of the card: It is true that the wedding invitations can get pricey. It is just difficult weighing the fair price against the level of the quality as well as the details required. It is advisable to compare the prices in different online stores and ensure that you are getting the reasonable deals on such wedding cards. There are many of the online stores like the deals lands that provide discount coupons on such wedding invitations. The planet cards discount codes offers great deals on different wedding cards. Also some of the stores offer free guest addresses printing on the invitation envelopes while some of them offer free shipping.


  • Have a look at the invitation designs: Look at various invitation designs as it is truly said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It is true that what one bride loves that may not be preferred by another one. For an instance, the traditional brides prefer classic invitations more that feature a white cotton cardstock with black, silver or gold lettering that resembles simple and elegant look. On the other hand, the more outgoing brides would prefer an invitation having a metallic pocket fold having satin ribbon and the rhinestone buckle that perfectly fits into its design. One could also add the photos of the couple in the wedding invitations. This would add a unique feature to the wedding cards.


  • Finalize the vendor: Shopping for the invitations online could be helpful in saving a lot of time, money as well as stress of the bride. The wedding marketplace offers a wide range of vendors who provides custom design invitations to fulfil the unique requirements of different brides. Also the brides can easily find the reviews of vendors online and can even ask the feedback from the previous brides.

Thus, before finalizing any of the order just checkout the sample work before placing the full order. This would allow brides to physically see the quality of wedding invitation before placing any large order.


OK, if you and your partner have talked, researched all the aspects of getting married and decided over the idea of a big fat wedding, then this article is for you. Read on for some tips.
