For engaged brides preparing to walk down the aisle, wedding dress shopping is one of the most stressful and time-consuming parts of wedding planning, even though every bride-to-be looks forward to it soon after her engagement. Wedding gown designers advise that brides first start from catalogs and magazines or wedding websites to compile pictures of wedding dresses they like – before starting to shop. It can get tiring if you have to try up to 20 weddings before finding the “it gown”. Most bridal shops won’t even let you try-on so many of their gowns.
