Budget for a wedding dress in Greece

How much are you planning to spend for your wedding dress? If you do not have much money set aside for the dress, you may consider looking at second hand clothes shops or at local print ads where other people are selling their used wedding dresses. There are some excellent deals when you shop around for a used dress, especially if you think that most wedding dresses are only worn one time. If you prefer to purchase a dress upon arrival, you may want to consult your wedding planner about suitable places to look for a dress. Bridal boutiques can have good prices on dresses too, especially when they are trying to clear out dresses they have had in stock for a while, to make room for newer styles.

Uniqueness for a wedding dress in Greece

If you have a specific type of dress in mind, you may not be impressed by local boutique stores. You may think of consulting a dress maker to have a custom dress made. Keep in mind, though, this is going to cost more than some other budget conscious options.

A good starting point is to glance at bridal magazines to get an idea of the style you like. If you like the selection available at your local wedding dress shops, make an appointment.

It is important you schedule an appointment and keep that appointment, because dress shop owners are quite busy. The appointment time you set means you have personal attention with your selection and fitting. Sometimes store owners have extra staff coming in to help with dress sizing and fitting, In other words, by making an appointment you are ensuring that you get the attention you need.

Many women truly enjoy the experience of wedding dress fittings since they are made to feel like princesses for a day; many people give the future bride their full attention. Dress shops tend to make the bride feel special because they want to sell her a beautiful dress.

Finished look

Try to have your hair styled in a similar manner to how your hair will be on your wedding day; this can help you to make a better decision on a wedding dress. Some dresses just look better with an updo hairstyle, while some look better with your hair down. You need to decide the way you will style your hair before you start trying on dresses. You don’t need to have your hair professionally styled, but if you‘re planning an ‘up do’, then pin your hair up before your fitting session.

Packing your wedding dress

How large is the wedding dress and how much material is involved?

Can the dress be easily packed into a suitcase or a special garment bag? Flying to a destination wedding means that your dress may end up being abused in the cargo hold of a plane for many hours.

Will the garment easily brought back to its initial form from being folded and creased into a tight space?

Can you have the dress pressed and prepared for your big day?

You need to arrange for all this in place before your big day. No bride wants to show up at her wedding in a wrinkled dress.

The alternative of shopping a wedding dress in Greece upon arrival is an option, but you need several days to make sure you can find a suitable dress and time for the dress to be properly fitted.
