  Do: Your Research

It is always a plus to be prepared. Do a little bit of research and get some inspiration. Check out the magazines, blogs, Pinterest, or even Instagram, and find the style that you like. It will make the wedding shopping process a lot easier.

Do: Set a Budget

The most important thing when shopping for your wedding dress is setting and sticking to your budget. Don't be tempted to try on dresses that are way over your budget.

So what is a reasonable budget for a wedding dress?

According to Brides magazine, the national average cost of a wedding dress is $1,631. Keep in mind to not spend over 5% of your wedding budget on the wedding dress.

Don't: Order a Dress Size Smaller

This is a common mistake that most brides do. It is always better to buy a dress in a larger size rather than a smaller size. Not all dresses can be taken out, and ones in larger sizes can be easily solved with skilled sewing.
