When to Shop and Buy a Wedding Dress

February 28, 2022

Planning your wedding is a long process—after all, between finding a venue, caterer, florist, entertainment, and more, you’ve got a lot on your plate. There are so many small details to finalize and think of that it’s easy to become overwhelmed, and all of this isn’t including the fact that you need to find something to wear! Bridal shopping can be extremely stressful, especially while you’re juggling so many other tasks, so we’re helping you get a better idea of what shopping will look like as you plan your wedding. Don’t stress, we’ve got you!

After You Get Engaged


Since the dress is one of the major details of your wedding, we always suggest that it should be one of the first things you take care of! The only two details equally important are your date and venue, so that you have a better idea of what your wedding day will look like. This helps you decide what kind of style you’re going for, and will help you narrow down to your wedding dress sooner!
