Before going out to look at dresses, look at magazines as well as online boards for inspiration. However, don't stick to one style of you never know, the one dress you overlook might be the one that fits perfectly for you. Be sure to only bring a couple of people with a bride might feel pressured to make a decision with an entourage. It's always wise to keep your budget point in mind and stick to it as closely as possible, as it doesn't make sense to try on a $30,000 gown if you can't afford it!

Let the bridal salon make recommendations to you, and take them to heart! They have years of experience helping brides make a decision about their gown, and they usually have a good idea about what styles accentuate your body type. The time of the week and day that you go to a store may have an affect on your experience, as well. Try to avoid Saturday shopping trips, as you might not receive as much attention from your consultant than say, on a Tuesday morning. The calmer a store is, the more comfortable your shopping trip will be.

Every bride gets nervous about if their wedding dress is going to fit on their wedding day. Whether you're working hard to slim down before your ceremony, or you're afraid that you might have gained a size or a dress that fits right now! Your body type will stay the same, so there shouldn't be a huge difference if you're months away from your wedding. It's much easier to make a dress smaller than trying to squeeze into a dress that's too small. Be sure to wear whatever undergarments you plan on wearing underneath your dress to the fitting!

It's a good idea to bring shoes that have a similar height to what you'll be wearing on your wedding day. The last thing you want is a dress dragging on the ground, or the "waiting for a flood" look. Bring your veil, perhaps try out some bridal makeup ideas, as this will make the whole look come together so you can better ascertain what you'll want to look like on your wedding day. With all of these tips in mind, you're ready to go out there and find your perfect wedding dress in Flint. Have fun!
