Finding the Perfect Wedding Gown

Savannah is home to some of the best wedding vendors in the Southeast. We take pride in connecting brides with Savannah's finest and today our friends at BleuBelle Bridal are sharing their secrets to finding the perfect wedding gown.

Set a budget. Starting your search without a cutoff point can be devastating. Find a number your comfortable with and stick to it!

Start early! The best time for ordering your gown in 8 – 9 months prior to your wedding date. That being said, BleuBelle Bridal can accommodate tighter deadlines depending on designer and style chosen.

Make an appointment. We always welcome walk-ins, especially when we have a stylist available, but on some days this can get tricky. Finding a wedding gown is an once-in-a-lifetime experience and all of us at BleuBelle Bridal want to make the process as perfect as possible! An appointment ensures you receive our undivided attention, while working one on one with an expert stylist!

Limit your entourage. We recommend bringing 1-3 people whose input means the most to you. Keeping your party small and intimate will keep the focus and you and your vision. Otherwise, you’ll spend too much time trying on gowns others picked out and steering the conversation back to what you like.

Step out of your comfort zone. We love pulling a “wildcard” into the mix. Sometimes, what you think you like doesn’t always have the same effect in person. Keep an open mind and try on something you never that you would be interested in. It just might be “the one”!

And most importantly, always remember, there are no rules! Follow your heart and your dream dress is sure to find you! There's so much more to finding your wedding dress than just choosing the one that looks best.  When you find your gown, it's as if that dress was always a part of you. 

There you have it! Special thanks to BleuBelle Bridal for the great tips! Photos captured by Teresa Earnest Photography.
