Each offers differing products and levels of service. The aim is to find the vendor that fits you in terms of style, budget and compatibility. Always begin by getting to know the people behind the business, their philosophy and work ethic. Then view their portfolio, make it a point to try at least a few dresses and have a discussion with them. Most importantly, broach the topic about budget – what you can afford and how much you are willing to spend. Good service providers will always be able to offer you some options based on what you have set aside for wedding attire.
