Myths and Mistakes to Avoid When Buying Your Wedding Dress

Shopping for a wedding gown can be a confusing and complicated task – and even more so when there are so many mistakes commonly made and false myths perpetuated. Let’s clear up some of the confusion by looking into some of the major wedding dress mistakes that brides make and the old-fashioned myths that aren’t true anymore.

Wedding Dress Mistakes to Avoid

Sometimes brides make mistakes when they are shopping for their dress, which can cost them a lot of time and money. What are some of the biggest wedding dress mistakes that you should avoid when shopping for your gown:

Waiting until you are the size you want to be on your wedding day.

If you are dieting to lose weight for your wedding day, don’t wait until you reach your shopping goal. When you wait, you will limit your choices and won’t leave enough time for ordering and last-minute changes. It is better to start shopping now and get your gown altered if you lose weight before the wedding.

You are choosing a dress that doesn’t flatter your figure.

Are you a pear shape or an apple? Get to know your body type and choose a dress that will flatter your particular figure the most – showing off your best assets and hiding your flaws.

We are bringing too many people with you when shopping.

There is a disadvantage to bringing along an entourage when you are dress shopping because you can face too many conflicting opinions. Instead, take one or two of your closest female friends and relatives who will give you honest and accurate feedback.

What Are Some of the Myths About Wedding Dresses?

What are some of the myths that are perpetuated about wedding dresses? Here are a few of the most common ones and the truth behind them:

“The bride should not make her dress.” This myth comes from an old saying that says that a bride will shed a tear for every stitch that she sews on her wedding gown. However, there is no actual logical reason for this – it’s only an old superstition.

“The bride shouldn’t wear the wedding gown before the wedding day.” It is another old superstition, which is commonly believed in the Philippines. However, it is not logical and doesn’t make much sense – if the bride cannot try on her gown, how will she know it fits?

“You shouldn’t wear a white wedding gown if you are not a virgin or if it is your second marriage.” Of course, this is another old tradition that has no founding to it – these days you can wear whatever color you choose! It is possible to find the best wedding dresses if you are wearing a different color dress.
