Micaela joins Michelle today to share about her experiences, dress shopping tips, how to shop if you don’t have the money to buy couture and more.
How early is too early to buy gown? Micaela says believes there isn’t really a time too soon to start looking. Depending on where you are getting your look from, you have to account for alteration time. If you are buying off the rack, buy something that fits. You can always take something in, but you won’t be able to make it much larger. You don’t want to deal with a broken zipper or popped button day-of.
It’s hard to find a transitional time in the evening for outfit changes. Work with the planner to figure out your timing so the events are not interrupted and the bride and groom can just keep enjoying the evening.
When you don’t have the money to spend on couture — some simple ways to step up your outfit game:
- Come prepared to your dress fitting, bring all the right undergarments and shoes, etc.
- Invest in your alterations.
- Hair and make-up really elevate any look. Do a trial ahead of time, fall in love with the whole look and feel.
