With so many different dresses and styles…. where should a bride start?
One option is to immediately run to the nearest bridal salon and go wild. But this endeavor is likely to leave you, your friends, and your family tired, frustrated, and without a dress to come home to. The easier option is to think about it in advance. In what month is the wedding, in what style will the ceremony take place, are you a traditional or a boho bride, do you want a veil or other hair accessories? If you have considered these basics, the following tips should help you find your dream dress.
Find your inspiration – look in magazines or browse online to collect photos of wedding dresses and accessories that you like. This will give you a first impression of your favorite style. The first question you will hear in the bridal salon is” “What idea do you have?” By providing them with your pictures, your consultant can narrow down the options and set them up for a great experience!
Set a budget – Set a budget for how much you want to spend on the dress, underwear and accessories. Do not forget to take into account the cost of changes. So always ask about the final price so that there are no unpleasant surprises after.
The Right Bridal Salon – Think about which bridal salon you could find your dress in. What brands do you sell, do you offer accessories, do you offer a choice within your budget?

These two things are always forgotten in the excitement, but they are very important!
