Here are some initial pointers for buying your wedding dress (Wedding Officiants Rev. Rudy)

I highly recommend Best for BrideĀ

1. Cut out pictures from bridal and fashion magazines, shop online and look at old family photos to zero in on your preferred style.

2. Ask friends and family for references on dressmakers and designers if you are having the dress made

3. Bring a friend whose opinion you trust to shop with you at bridal stores. Include your mother if appropriate.

4. Bring shoes with the same size heel you expect to wear at the wedding.

5. Look through gowns on the rack and attend trunk shows. You could save a lot of money.

6. Try on a variety of dresses.

7. Discuss alteration charges with the salon, once you choose your dress.

8. Allow six months for dressmaking, if the dress is being made for you.

9. Be ready to pay about 50 percent of the cost of the dress as a deposit.

10. Take home a fabric swatch to match with your shoes, veil and accessories.

Have a wonder-filled Wedding Day
