I am starting to look into wedding dresses and was wondering if there is anything you wish you had thought about when you went shopping.
Maybe you wish you had thought about how hard it would be to dance in your mermaid dress or how sweaty it would be under your ballgown.
Let me know!

-Ease of sitting/walking/dancing
-Whether your desired hairstyle will coordinate well
-Chafing from the bodice under your arms

The back of the dress! I was so enamored with it that I didn’t realize the deep V back means I can’t wear a normal bra. It probably wouldn’t have changed my decision too much, as there are of course ways to get support without a real bra, but it’s one more thing to worry about that I kind of wish I didn’t have to.

The weight of a dress. No matter what style it is, if its too heavy it will be uncomfortable. I almost went with a very heavy full lace dress (I’m getting married in June on the beach in Belize) and I can’t imagine how hot and uncomfortable I would be in it. I ended up going back and getting a different and much lighter dress that I know I won’t sweat to death in.

I wish I’d realized to look at the collections from designers before I went. I discovered so many beautiful dresses I knew nothing about only after the fact, and never got the chance to try them on. Essentially I went in blind and got the first thing that felt “a-okay”. Now I’m walking my regret dress down the aisle.
So if you don’t have a vision in mind, or a favorite designer, or styles you’ve already scouted online, I recommend doing that first.

The closure of the dress. I never thought too much about how it closed until after the fact and I wished my dress had a corset.
