Wearing a gorgeous wedding dress is almost every little girl’s dream, and if you’re planning to get married you’re probably very excited about the prospect of being able to wear that once in a lifetime gown. However, when wedding dress shopping it can be really difficult to find one that you like, especially if you’re shopping with friends and family members who’ve all got their own idea of what looks good on you. There’s also your budget to take into account, as well. If you’re finding it hard to decide when to say no to a dress, we’ve got you covered – read on.
When the Budget Doesn’t Allow
If there is simply no space in your budget for a dress that you’ve seen, you’re probably going to have to say no to it – unless you can conjure up the rest of the money from somewhere else. If you’re dead set on a dress that is over budget there are ways to get around it such as compromising on other parts of the wedding or even seeing if you can ask a family member or close friend to lend you the money – but if you don’t want to do this, it’s time to say no. Thankfully, many wedding dress boutiques will have similar dresses at a cheaper price, so it’s worth asking.
When Other People Take Over
Almost every bride to be has been there – you try on a dress that is nice, but something about it just isn’t ‘you’ – however your mum has other ideas and is 100% set on you wearing that dress. It can be hard not to give in to the demands of close family members, however you should remember that it’s you and you alone who is wearing this dress, so if you’re only considering getting it because somebody else likes it say no and pick a dress you like – you never know, the friend or family member who loved the other dress might prefer the one you pick in the end.
If It Needs Tweaking
Sometimes, you find the absolutely perfect wedding dress for you, but there’s a lot of work that needs to be done on it in order for it to be a perfect fit. If you find a dress that’s two sizes too big for example, you could end up having to fork out hundreds in alteration costs, and even then you can never be guaranteed that it will look just as good on you as you imagined it would when you first saw it. It’s best to say no to a dress that needs a lot of tweaking no matter how perfect it is – as you can’t be sure that it will be just as perfect after the changes have been made.
