Sure, you will seek the advice of a designer. But at the end of the day, the decision is yours to make as you will be the one wearing the gown on your wedding day.

A few tips :

  • Allow yourself sufficient lead time to try on gowns, have them altered or order a custom-made creation.
  • Do some research prior to visiting the designers.
  • Avoid bringing along too large an entourage as there will be too may opinions to consider.
  • Do try on the gowns rather than just look at them on the hangers.
