The most rewarding (and sometimes scary) part of your wedding planning is finding a bridal boutique and your perfect wedding dress. You’re wedding wont seem real until the moment you pull back the curtain, look in the mirror and realise that all your planning as a child (Ken & Barbie have a lot to answer for) has paid of, you look like a princess and the dress you’re wearing fits in all the right places. At least this is how your dress fitting should pan out, dresses rarely fit the first time and require alterations or additions but hopefully that wont dampen your spirit. Before you organise your fitting you first need to find a bridal boutique / bridal dress shop / bridal salon.
The name of the shop is of little relevance, the one thing they all have in common is that they supply bridal dresses / gowns.

Not only does this require less travelling time, it also means that when W-day is approaching you can visit in person to put pressure on the staff to have your dress ready in time.
