Buying the wedding dress is one of the most important steps in planning a wedding – and one of the most important purchases in the life of a lady as well. It is extremely important to buy your wedding gown in advance, especially because there are many steps when it comes to having it properly fit for the Big Day. If you want to know when to buy your gown and what are the most important steps on your “wedding dress timeline”, make sure to read on:

• Ideally, you should start thinking of your wedding dress with about 12 months before the wedding date. This will give you plenty of time to set a budget for the dress (and for the accessories, makeup and hair as well), to choose the wedding gown shopping entourage and to research potential designs too. As soon as you have all these things set up, you can start shopping for the one.
• With about 8 months before the wedding date you should already purchase your gown. Now, you don’t have to rush and settle for something just because the Big Day is approaching. But by this time, you should at least have a narrowed-down list of options.
• You should start shopping for undergarments, for shoes and for accessories with about 5 months before the wedding date. This will give you plenty of time to find something that truly suits your dress and your style.
• The first fitting usually takes place about 3 months before the wedding date, while the second fitting takes place with about 6-8 weeks before the Big Day. The last fitting takes place about 2-3 weeks before the wedding date (and by this time you should have already decided on your “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue” if you want to stick to this tradition).
When shopping for the perfect wedding gown, do not forget to stop by Amanda Lina’s Sposa Boutique. We hold an impressive collection of gowns designed by the world’s most famous names – so you will surely find something to fall in love with!

Picking one wedding gown for the Big Day can be much more difficult than a lot of people would be tempted to believe. And yet, there’s nobody to tell you that you have to stick to one dress alone. In fact, it has become quite common that brides choose two (or even more) dresses for their special day. If you are considering this as well, here are some of the top reasons to convince you once and for all:

• There’s a myriad of stunning designs available on the market today – so why should you stick to only one of them? If you feel that you have found two gowns that look great on you and make you feel really beautiful, there’s absolutely no reason not to go for both of them.
• You can be extremely elegant and very comfortable on your wedding day. Many ladies dream of saying “I Do” dressed in large, opulent ball gowns. However, some of them also think that such a dress would make them feel uncomfortable during the reception. If this is the case for you too, you should know that you don’t have to settle for one of the styles only. You can be a Princess for the ceremony and a party Queen for the reception by choosing two different gowns.
• If you’re worried that some people may find your decision odd, remind yourself that in some cultures it is actually traditional for the bride to wear at least two wedding dresses on her Big Day. Why wouldn’t we “borrow” such a nice tradition as well?
Here at Amanda Lina’s Sposa Boutique, you’ll find every single type of dress you have ever thought of. From fabulous ball gown cuts to modern dresses to suit a cosmopolitan bride, there’s something for everyone – even for those of you searching for two gowns! Come visit us and take a look around! You’ll love what you see!
