You’re engaged! Ahhh, congratulations beautiful! What an exciting season it is and one of the most anticipated things to look forward to is being able to say yes to your dream dress!! As most shopping trips go, we usually go in with something specific in mind, and let me tell ya, this is no different. It is always good to have an idea of what you think you might like going into it. Whether it be pages flagged in the bridal magazines, screenshots from websites, or our favorite, PINTEREST! Yes, I said it, Pinterest. It is such a helpful tool when making a list of gowns you think you may want to try-on or to pinpoint a style or theme for your wedding day.

A few things that you need to be cautious about while pinning your favorite gowns, is to keep your gown budget in mind. It’s always a good idea to establish a gown budget well before you start shopping. That being said, don’t believe Pinterest when it comes to the prices of gowns. Chances are if the price seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Another thing that’s important to know while you’re pinning dress inspo, is that wedding dresses tend to look much different in person than they do on the professional model. Just keep an open mind as you shop and know that the dress could look different for each person that tries it on. As long as you keep that in mind, Pinterest will become your go-to tool for getting all the ideas for your big day!
