Melbourne Wedding Dress and Grooms Attire FAQ
Who pays for a wedding dress?
Traditionally the Brides’ family paid for her wedding dress. However, today the Bride often pays for her own gown, although her family may contribute towards the cost.
Who pays for Bridesmaid dresses and Groomsmen suits?
Typically the bridal party is required to pay for their wedding outfits and accessories. However, the bridal couple may also contribute.
What do I need to know about wedding dress shopping that I might not already know?
Consider your wedding style before you begin wedding dress shopping. How practical will a style of dress be? Will you be too cold for an outdoor winter wedding, or burn in the sun of an outdoor summer wedding? If your dress has a hoop or long train you will need to consider this when selecting your wedding transport. When trying on wedding gowns be sure to wear the underwear you are planning on wearing on your wedding day – possibly a strapless bra, briefs with no VPL, and maybe shapeware. Also take along shoes in a similar height. When trying on your dress try different poses, check for cleavage spillage, and how easy it is to sit, stand, walk and dance in your gown.
When should I start looking for my wedding dress?
It’s always best to start early. Wedding gowns can take four to eight months to arrive, then you might need to allow time for alterations.
Do I need an appointment to shop for a wedding dress?
Often an appointment is required to ensure a consultant can assist you with selecting and trying on wedding dresses. You may receive more attention if you visit on a week day rather than the weekend or evening. If you are petite or plus size, check when making your appointment that the store will have appropriate sizes for you to try on.
What size wedding dress should I buy?
If you’re planning on losing weight don’t necessarily be tempted to purchase a smaller sized gown. It’s much easier to have a wedding dress taken in, than alter one that is tight-fitting. Also keep in mind that wedding dress sizing can be higher than your normal clothes.
How far in advance do the Groom and Groomsmen need to book suit hire?
It’s best not to leave it too late to book your suit hire for weddings during peak wedding – September to April. Most men attend a fitting appointment 2 to 6 months prior to the wedding date.
