You must consider not only your wedding dress budget, but budget for your wedding gown accessories. What accessories do you need?
Items like the bra, the slip, shoes, shapewear, gloves, jewelry, tiara garter, stockings and veil are what you need to consider.
Some of these items you may not need. It just depends on you and the dress you end up with.
Like most brides you want to look like a million bucks for your groom when he sees you come down the aisle. You want be as put together as a celebrity bride.
This all doesn't just happen by chance. Celebrity brides know the importance of choosing the right wedding dress accessories.
Starting with the lingerie worn under the dress. This includes the bra, the and any body shapewear you plan to wear. I would suggest you go and purchase these garments before trying on dresses. Why?
Tips: Keep the tags on the bra you purchase just in case you have to return the bra to the store. A particular bra may not work under some dresses. Please make sure you are fitted for the correct size bra, since it makes a big difference in how a gown fits you.
If you haven't picked out your shoes before you go wedding dress shopping, bring along a pair about the heel height you plan to buy.
But remember, you will save money buying your shoes from a shoe store or online shoe source. They are priced much higher at bridal shop.
Remember to take your undergarments and shoes with you for your wedding dress alteration fitting. This is very important to assure that your alterations are fitted correctly.
If you are willing to shop around you can find fantastic deals on the internet. Also, go to your local department stores and small boutique shops for these items to save money.
If you are a busy bride who doesn't have time to shop . . . then it might be more convenient for you to purchase your bridal gown accessories at the bridal shop. You will pay a premium for this service, but if you are not on a tight budget, this will save you valuable time.
Dont forget to budget for your in hair, make-up, manicures and pedicures!
Wedding gown accessories play an important part in looking your absolute best for your wedding day!
