Tips for a Stress-Free Wedding Dress Shopping Experience

Tips and Advice


Too often, stress hovers over brides as they make crucial wedding decisions. There is a lot of pressure to create the perfect wedding day. However, this shouldn’t be the way it is! Planning your wedding should be a magical experience where you and your partner bond over creating a celebration that you will remember.

Tips for Feeling Your Best on Your Wedding Day

Your wedding gown is one of the most important pieces of your personal wedding experience. After all, as the bride to-be, you deserve to feel exquisite, and the perfect gown can certainly help.

We love seeing the bride walk down the aisle beaming with pride! That’s why, here at Ma Maison, we want to share a few tips for assisting you with having a stress-free wedding dress shopping experience. If you are ready to take in some great insight, be sure to continue reading:

  • Get a Head Start. You can start shopping for your gown a little early. Take in all the unique styles and details to get a feel for what kind of gown you are looking for. An early start will give you plenty of time to make a stress-free decision. Ideally, it is best to start your dress search about a year in advance, so that you have time to discover your dream gown, as well as have alterations completed.
  • You Can Take Your Time. There should be no pressure from anyone when choosing your gown. It is perfectly ok to take your time, especially if you start your search early. Know that you don’t have to choose a dress on your first outing, as you should never settle. Don’t say “Yes!” to the dress unless you know that it is “the one”.
  • Consider Suggestions. You will likely get a wedding dress consultant when you begin dress shopping. They have plenty of knowledge about wedding dresses and their details. Your consultant will give you some suggestions to help you find a gown that really fits your vision. Try on a dress in each style, so that you can discover the best fit for your body.
  • Small Entourage. It can be tempting to bring all of your closest girls with you on this exciting shopping adventure. But, it’s important to remember that your opinion is the only one that matters. Keeping your shopping group very small will allow your opinion to shine.
