If finding The Dress sounds a little overwhelming to you, hire a personal stylist who can guide you in the right direction. A personal stylist has established relationships with many designers and bridal shops, and has the experience and knowledge of what gowns and styles would look best on your body type. A personal stylist takes your ideas and wishes for a wedding dress and then narrows the options down to a few dresses at a few shops. Why waste your time looking through racks and racks, when a stylist can arrive ahead of you and choose a small assortment of dresses that you would love.
If hiring a personal stylist is not within your budget, many department stores offer this service at a nominal fee when you shop with them.
