When should i start looking for my Bridal and Prom Dress ?
It is always best to not to look at to many shops and try one hundreds of gowns, you will make your mind overloaded , confused in turn making you feel stressed out . This will make an experience that should be a special and happy occasion into a feeling like its a chore!
It will help to find a store that has every style, Design, Colour and Fabric, making sure they can accommodate your own unique taste, style and vision of your dress and even the dress that suits your Prom or Wedding Theme.
Finding a store that also accommodates your wedding party is also important. A store that offers it all Bridal Dresses , Bridesmaids etc also helps as it lowers the stress if you can get everything you want all underneath one roof. They may have offers and deals on doing this ! Remember to make sure your store choice have Dresses that falls within your budget really helps. Here at Cinders we have it all in one store, with fantastic Discounts and Offers.
You can start looking as and when you want . We have had with some years Girls starting from Mid September up until May...
However as we supply only one style to one School, it is always best to book in early this way ensures you get the dress you want plus you have up to 7 months to pay it off (this obviously is depending on which month you purchase it).
The Mistake of Thoughts.... Some feel that it is best to leave it right until the end as they will be discounted. This is sometimes true but there will only be the samples and a few to get in separate sizes. Only certain Designers Dresses can still be ordered in at the end of the season. The Best Way .... Is to buy earlier this way you have full choice of selection , sizes and up to 7 months to pay!!! As a parent myself i know this is important to me as i couldn't afford to do one big pull out !
