Start tearing out pages from magazines, looking at your family’s old wedding photographs and going through various wedding blogs or websites. This will give you a rough idea of what you should be looking for, current trends or even just give you some sort of inspiration.

Do not ever think you could buy a wedding dress as easy as buying a tshirt. It takes so much more effort that you would actually think. A few things that you might actually need are:
Heels- wedding dresses look better when you try them on with heels, only then will you actually know how the dress looks like exactly
Undergarments- wear a nude strapless bar and a nude underwear and bring spanx if possible. This will allow you to see how the dress would actually fit you on your wedding day
Inspirations- Bring along photo inspirations to help you decide such as the wedding’s venue and pictures that you looked at while you were researching. Your wedding theme should also be part of your inspiration, never go looking for a dress if you do not know the theme yet.
Crew- Make sure you bring along the right people to help you make your decision, two you should be just nice. Too many people might just give you a headache and also bare in mind to bring people that are not fussy to be out long
You should always buy a wedding dress that is lesser than the budget you set for it. This is so that you could use the extra cash to buy accessories such as a wedding veil, earrings, necklaces, etc.
