9 Essentials for Wedding Dress Shopping

 

title

1. Have an idea of what you want before going to your appointment

1

Look for dresses and styles you love on magazines and Pinterest before you head to the store. Come prepared with your wedding binder, magazine tears or pictures on your phone. Your consultant will want to get a sense of your style and what you love.

2. Be up front about your budget

2

Make sure the bridal shop associates, your crew, and yourself are on the same page about your boundaries. And remember to account for alterations in your budget as it can sometimes add up to an extra $200 to $800.

3. Bring a pair of shoes

3

If you already picked out your shoes for your big day, perfect! If not, find a pair of shoes with roughly the same height as the ones you’ll wear so you can see where the hemline will actually hits. This is also good to know for alteration purposes!

4. Wear or bring your own undergarments

4

Before going to your appointment sans underwear, remember this: most bridal shops have limited types of bras for fitting, and many salons do require you to bring them. Plus, it will help you get a much better idea of how the dress will look and feel with the right undergarments.

5. Tone-down your hair and makeup

5

You wouldn’t want to try on your dress for your big day with a rolled-out-of-bed messy bun now would you? Do yourself up a little, but not too much to risk staining the dresses. Also, bring an extra elastic band to help get a clear view of the necklines.

6. Don’t forget about the headpiece, veils and accessories

7

It’s the little details that will compliment your entire look. So if you already have accessories you know you want to wear, whether that be something old, new, borrowed or even blue, bring it along!

7. Consider the venue when choosing your perfect dress

8

Is your wedding at a church, by the beach or at a farm? Is it during the summer or in the fall? Take the environment into consideration when choosing the style, length and fabric.

8. Bring your trusted counsel

6

Enlist the people whose opinion you trust. But limit your crew so you don’t feel pressured by too many opinions. And make sure they know who has the final say, which is always you, the bride!

9. Most importantly, Have fun!

9

Have an open mind and remember that dress shopping should be fun and exciting. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t find anything you like! Anything less than 100% is a no!

In the Los Angeles Area? Come check us out!

Stylized Shoot by PhotoKisses

Kristina Stockton of PhotoKisses, brings a unique Brave-inspired wedding that encourages brides to think outside the box. If you are planning a Disney princess inspired wedding, without the royal stuffy pompousness, then this may be for you!

201505_PhotoKisses_176 201505_PhotoKisses_164 201505_PhotoKisses_163 201505_PhotoKisses_020 201505_PhotoKisses_040201505_PhotoKisses_070201505_PhotoKisses_103 201505_PhotoKisses_161 201505_PhotoKisses_424

Here are a few words from Kristina regarding the inspiration behind this shoot:

“I took the idea of Merida, the wild and untamed Scottish princess, and imagined her on her wedding day. She would be the type of girl who would choose a small and intimate garden wedding instead of a ballroom (or castle), eyes only for her handsome groom she picked out herself. She wouldn’t bother much with details, so a simple and elegant decor with a touch of unruliness, arrow and bear elements, and a few Scottish accents is all it takes to make this princess’ wedding dream come true.”

“Oh, and of course, big wild red hair – but that’s more of a bonus than a requirement”

Stylized Shoot By Karen D Photography

Karen, of Karen D Photography, is a Santa Barbara and Los Angeles based wedding and boudoir photographer. She is a lover of love, travel, adventure, destination weddings, empowerment, positivity, confidence, and love.

“I have an immense desire to help people build their self-esteem, as I am a true believer that people who have high self-worth are happier, and make better partners and friends. I believe people with good, healthy self-esteem are not afraid to make mistakes, because they understand mistakes are necessary for personal growth.”

A few words from Karen regarding her type of Photography:

“Boudoir photos are an opportunity to celebrate your self and your body, and to show appreciation for it. Due to the daily images society bombards us with, many of us end up being incredibly hard on our bodies, and easily forget all the great things our body does for us. My purpose is to create a safe and fun environment. To pamper you, to celebrate your accomplishments, highlight your strengths and navigate through your weaknesses. To nix the negativity and embrace the moment, and capture you as you are in the present moment.”

“Here’s to strength, unabashed confidence and sensuality. And to being unapologetically human.”

Stylized Shoot By From The Hip Photo

From The Hip Photo began with two people deeply in love. Nina Barry & Danny de Zayas founded From the Hip Photo during the time they were planning their wedding. It was a joint venture specializing in wedding, event and portrait photography. The business was named in a nod to the candid, spontaneous style espoused by its photographers as well as the fresh, distinctive aesthetic of their work.

During their first full year focusing exclusively on photography, the pair photographed three dozen weddings in addition to numerous engagement and portrait sessions… and they’ve haven’t looked back since! Today, they have expanded to five full time members!

Stylized Shoot by Adam Lowe Photography

Specializing in editorial, wedding and commercial photography, Adam Lowe Photography brings us a very unique, yet classic shoot.

201501_Adam_Lowe_Photography_013__1431051467_92105 201501_Adam_Lowe_Photography_018__1431051524_74995 201501_Adam_Lowe_Photography_030__1431051676_53615 201501_Adam_Lowe_Photography_036__1431051862_30856 201501_Adam_Lowe_Photography_044__1431051990_93084 201501_Adam_Lowe_Photography_057__1431052116_33790 (1)

Here are a few words from Adam regarding the inspiration for this shoot: “My inspiration for this shoot came from a few different places. I have always liked the gritty nature of high ISO film photography. I am a hybrid shooter (I shoot digital and film) but for this shoot I decided to shoot digital, since I had so many post ideas in my head and really film doesn’t lend itself to much post work of this nature. I was also going for a kind of classic feel with these images by using the bluish grey backdrop and classic style posing. I am not going to lie, I really like work from Emily Soto and Lara Jade and used some of their work as inspiration, as well as Renaissance era paintings, Valentino ads (fashion designer) and the boho wedding style.”
