After the excitement of getting engaged, one of the most thrilling parts of the wedding journey undoubtedly is shopping for that perfect wedding dress. But before you dive into the racks of beautiful gowns, there are some important things you should keep in mind. We’ve put together some frequent asked questions from our brides with our honest answers to help you make the most of your wedding dress shopping experience.
1. When shall I start wedding dress shopping?
When it comes to wedding dress shopping, timing is key. Typically, brides begin their search around 6 to 24 months before the wedding, and we suggest bridal start this journey no later than 9months at anywhere in the UK, which will give brides enough time for dress order to arrive and for dress alterations, while avoiding unnecessary stress. However, we understand that love knows no calendar, so some brides may find themselves only have 1 to 3 months shopping time before the big day. Therefore, June Peony Bridal Couture always have a good range of stock dresses allowing last-minute brides to purchase their favourite dress off-the-peg and take home immediately.
2. Do I need to make an appointment to try wedding dresses?
Your wedding dress shopping experience should be a memorable and personalized moments in your bridal journey. To ensure that each bride receives the full attention and care you deserve, we highly recommend brides book an appointment with the bridal boutique before your visit. This not only saves you time, but also guarantees that you have a dedicated consultant to guide you through the process and assist you find your dream dress without hassles.
3. Do I need to find my dream dress style before my appointment?

4. Who usually comes wedding dress shopping?
Please try to keep your entourage small. We understand that wedding dress shopping is a momentous occasion and that your family and friends are excited to join you. However, too many opinions can sometimes be overwhelming and counterproductive. To ensure that you find the dress that truly speaks to your heart, consider inviting only your closest family members or besties, usually around 2 to 4 people. Your thoughts and feelings should guide this important decision, and a smaller guests group will help you stay focused on what truly matters.
