Lauren’s top wedding dress shopping tips

  1. If you usually wear makeup, put that lipstick on Babe

    Don’t go wedding dress shopping on dirty hair day or post gym session. Do you hair and makeup the way you feel most beautiful and confident, so you can picture yourself on the big day. You won’t feel good in any dress if you’re not feeling your best.

  2. Do You!

    This might be a given, but let yourself fall in love with the dress that makes you feel the most beautiful, not the dress your mom wants you to wear. Stay true to yourself and you can’t go wrong.

  3. Take Video

    All you will want to do is stare at the photos of dresses you’ve tried on after your appointment. Don’t forget to take videos. Video will show how the dress moves + changes under different lighting. Walk around a bit in the store and have your bff take a video of you in your favorite gowns.

  4. Bring the right squad

    Bringing the right squad is so important when finding your dream dress! Only bring 1 – 4 girlfriends to your appointment. It can be overwhelming with too many people + opinions.

  5. Nude is a Necessity

    Come prepared with the right underwear. Remember… you’re trying on WHITE dresses! Wear nude and/or seamless underwear so you can really see yourself in the gown without distractions.
