One of the most exciting experiences for the bride-to-be is shopping for a wedding gown. But, it is also a crucial task with several possibilities of making mistakes, which might affect the overall wedding planning. However, out of the many mistakes which can be avoided, Always and forever Australia enlists a few errors which should be avoided under any circumstances – especially when you are amidst all the attention and wedding excitement.

Before you start the conversation with the bridal boutiques about the wedding dresses, read about the few blunders to avoid and achieve that perfect ‘dream come true’ wedding gown experience. At Always and forever Australia, we specialise in the most affordable wedding gowns from the most renowned designers in the world. We stock the latest collections of wedding dresses in Melbourne.

Avoid shopping for the wedding dress too early or at the last moment: Wedding gowns are directly related to the wedding theme, venue and the time of year. As time is always a constraint for the wedding, it is important to know when it is perfect to buy the gown. The perfect time to buy the gown is 2-3 months prior to the wedding, so as to spare some extra time for alterations and changes.

Buying the gown without knowing the heel size: To avoid last moment expensive alterations, it is important to know the heel size you would want to wear to your wedding. Heel size determines the gown fall and the way lace hem would look.


Not having the budget planned: If you are the one who doesn’t want to invest everything you have in the wedding gown, plan your budget before shopping for the wedding gown. This makes it easier for you to make choices and for the wedding gown consultant to help you with the choices within the price range you’ve decided earlier.

Bringing an entourage along to the boutique: As a normal saying goes that ‘Too many cooks spoil the broth’, wedding gowns are personal choices. Having too many people around means too many opinions and blunders. Go wedding gown shopping with few people to ensure that your gown reflects your personality and style.

Not choosing the right lingerie: Often left undiscussed, the undergarments should always be bought in accordance with the wedding gown. There is nothing more important than a well-fitting and comfortable lingerie which offers the wedding gown the best in elegance.
