Bridal gown shopping can be exciting and fun, but it can also be overwhelming! Bella Bleu is here to share out top tips to smooth and successful shopping!

1.
Shop ahead! Most brides are shopping a year to fourteen months in advance. Don’t forget to leave about two to three months for alterations.

2.
Know your budget! Our gowns at Bella Bleu range from $2,000 to $6,000 with the majority in-between $2,500 to $4,500.

3.
Keep your group limited to your loved ones who have your best interest at heart. Your fitting room fits up to four additional guests.

4.
Do your research! Look at our designers online or bring in your Pinterest board for ideas. We want to make the most of your ninety minutes with us.

5.
Do your hair and make-up! Look good, feel good!

6.
Bring any undergarments you plan on wearing on your wedding day! Make sure they are nude so they do not distract from the gown.

7.
Don’t get hung up on sizes! Couture size charts have different sizing than we are used to.

8.
Don’t over-shop! You don’t want to be overwhelmed with too many choices. Most brides make a decision after visiting between 1-3 shops.

9.
Don’t second guess yourself! When you think you have found “the one” stay true to your personal style and choose whichever gown makes you feel the prettiest.

10.
HAVE FUN! Shopping for your wedding gown shouldn’t be too stressful, remember to enjoy your experience. It is your big day after all!
