8 Essential Things Every Indian Bride Must Keep In Mind While Shopping For Her Wedding Outfit

The most important aspect of a wedding for every bride out there is the whole process of the entire wedding preparation. However, this whole process, right from selecting the perfect outfit to finding matching jewellery and shortlisting a MUA, is not always as easy as it seems. If you aren’t careful enough, you can run into the risk of making some really costly makes, which may rue the day for most of us. Contrary to this, if you keep a few essential things in your mind, you can steer clear of such blunders. Here are a few things, you soon-to-be brides should pay a serious ear to while shopping for your wedding outfits.

1. Do not shop in a group

It is your day to outshine, so should your outfit. You definitely would want to ensure that you pick up nothing short of perfect as your wedding outfit, however, having too many people flying in to advice you and give their opinions might just take you far away from what you wanted in the first place. So, we suggest that you take either your mother or your sister on your shopping spree to get an honest and one sided opinion. We promise you, this tip ensures a STRESS-FREE shopping experience.

2. Do not shop too early

We all agree that clothing trends change with a bat of an eye, don’t we? And by shopping way ahead of your wedding date, you might run into the risk of that dress getting outdated. Your wedding outfit usually takes atleast a month to get stitched, finished and handed to you after several alterations. So, how about you start looking for a dress 2 months or so before your wedding, this will help you avoid getting into an outdated dress on your wedding day. Plan wisely!

3. Click pictures of the one you finalise

While most of the shops and boutiques don’t allow you to click a picture of the outfits, in order to avoid their designs from being copied. But once you make your final purchase, they will surely allow you to get a fine picture. It is very essential to have a picture of your outfit, in two reasonable ways. First, it’ll be easier for you to buy matching jewellery from the best Indian jewellery brands. Second, the picture will help you sort the accompanying accessories with your wedding outfit, be that clutch, sandals etc.

4. Do your homework well

Before you go on a shopping spree to bag your bridal outfit, make sure you run through a thorough check of the latest trends doing the rounds this season. You may also check about the most illustrious designers in vogue, at the time. Not just this, check the latest styles, colours and their prices. This will help you get a good deal!

5. Know your budget

It would be great if you could decide your budget for your bridal wear beforehand. When you are out there at a showroom, make sure that you inform the attendant about your price range, so that they showcase only those pieces that suits your budget. While every bride dreams big about her bridal outfit, but it’s important to act like a realistic being.

6. Avoid trying too many dresses

It’s best that you try the best and avoid trying too many outfits, this will only confuse you. You may get tempted by the idea of trying all the styles in the store, but stick to the research that you have done beforehand. Make sure that you ask for the same kind of style that you have already fantasized yourself wearing on your big day, and rock your way into buying something similar.

7. Check the fitting very well

The wedding outfits usually weigh heavy with their full flare and heavy embroidery which make them very difficult to handle. Not just this, you don’t have to sit through your wedding hours, remember, you will have to bend and touch the feet of your elders time and again. In that case, it’s important that your dress fits you perfectly to avoid any discomfort. And don’t forget about those long haul photo sessions. After all, don’t you want to flash your outfit and look breathtaking in all your wedding photos?

8. Keep the footwear in mind

While might not just have bought the footwear you’re supposed to wear under your bridal dress, you still must be having a thought image of what kind of sandal you would like to wear. We suggest, drop in a similar kind of heel in your bag while you go out to shop your wedding dress, this will ensure that you make the right alterations to the length of your outfit, according to the length of your heel. Okay, thank us later!
