Most girls – if not all – dream about their wedding dress when they are young. But in reality, finding the perfect dress isn’t as easy as it may have seemed in your innocent childhood fantasies, much more so if you are a plus-size bride. Although bridal brands are starting to become more inclusive, it can still be quite a challenge to find plus-size wedding dresses because not all stores carry them. But when a store does have an extensive range of options for you to pick from, that does not necessarily guarantee that you will have the most seamless experience. And a part of that has to do with some common mistakes that a lot of curvy brides-to-be make. To make sure that you find the wedding dress of your dreams, here are some of those mistakes that you should avoid:

1. Bring a large entourage

One of the biggest mistakes you can make when shopping for your wedding dress is bringing a large entourage. This holds true for all brides. You should only bring those people who you can trust to support you and not be negative in their feedback. Invite only your closest friends or a few of your family members along, and make a day of it.  

2. Focus only on the fit

If you go into wedding dress shopping looking only for a dress that fits, chances are you will never find one that you truly love. You should pay attention to the other details too. Does it have a flattering shape? What is the neckline like? Is it lace or tulle? It is essential to consider all these details so that you find a dress that you feel good wearing.

3. Keep your dress dreams to yourself

Do you have a dream dress or designer in mind? Make sure you let your shopping consultants know. When you have a vision for your wedding dress, it narrows down your options, making the shopping process much easier. While you should definitely keep an open mind about trying other styles or designers, it is worth a try. So, do not keep your wishes or specific requirements to yourself. Communication is key.
