One of the first things people look forward to once they are engaged is going to try on wedding dresses. It can be so exciting to find the dress that you are going to wear when marrying the love of your life. But how do you know if it’s the right dress? Here are some questions to ask to know if you have found the right dress!

Are you smiling?
Wedding dresses can all be beautiful and make you smile. But when it’s the right dress, you will grin ear to ear. You don’t want to get a dress that is just okay. When trying the dress, if you look in the mirror and see yourself naturally smiling, this could be the right one. It can sometimes be good to try some other ones on, then go back to that dress and see if your smile is back.
Have you been to many shops?
It’s important not just to go for the first dress you try on when choosing your wedding dress. You will be left disappointed if you see something else later that you love. Book in at several shops so that you can see their array of dresses. You won’t be able to make the correct decision without at least going to two shops. You should try on at least six Wedding Dresses so that you can see what style suits you. Make sure you try on some dresses that you would never have chosen because you don’t know; you might fall in love with the style!
Is it the right length?
A lot of people go for a long style because it’s the traditional thing to do. But if you don’t like it, why not try on some shorter dresses. They are very popular and a beautiful style. They are ideal for beach weddings as you won’t get the sand on your dress. It’s worth trying one on and seeing if it’s right for you. If your family and friends say it’s not right for a wedding, remind them it’s your big day and you need a dress that suits you.

Is it the right cost?
Wedding dresses are often the most expensive purchase you will make in your life. It’s important to get the right dress but you won’t want to spend a fortune. The best thing to do is check the price of the dress before trying it on. If you fall in love with it, but can’t afford it, it will be dreadful. We have talked previously about how you can find a cheaper wedding dress if you’re on a budget.
Can you imagine wearing it?
When choosing the right wedding dress, you need to decide if you can imagine yourself in the wedding dress. If you can’t see yourself wearing it on the day and having photos that will last a lifetime, you need to rethink your decision. You won’t be able to hide the pictures and videos, so you need to love the dress.
